  12. Husqvarna 365 special

    Hi, Thanks for the replies, Stripped the saw today, bottom end, crank & mains are all good so i will just change the seals & leave the mains. I have ordered a Meteor cylinder & piston kit today, was tempted by the Hyway 52mm kit but have used Meteor pistons before and know they are good quality parts. Jim372xp & Eddt_t what size bars do your saws run with the kits on ? cheers Mark
