Took the old 254xp today for a run out,still one of my favourite ever saws to use 👍.Anybody else still running one?

Yes I still use mine occasionally but have to be a bit careful with it as it has started running a bit weak and I haven't got round to seeing why. The 346 I recently rebuilt is my go to saw now and any one of 3 262s which are over 30 years old now if something needs a bit of grunt. I haven't had the bigger saws out for many years, too heavy and too  difficult to pull over.

My guess would be an air leak .   Fuel hose , crank seals carb boot etc etc .

Yes I suspect crank seal and probably clutch side crankcase bearing wear

I think the reason for the arches is that they’d store the cattle in them which would warm the dwelling above , or so I was told the other day at a very similar building !

I've had a look at some historical auction prices and I'd say only about £50, poss £100 depending on size and condition in an auction. I'm sure someone would pay more for it if it was in a shop.

It's really bad to see them like this. I am also a farmer. While being natural, the result is frustration when there is no medicine. 😒
