Excessive piston wear

This thread may not have much of a purpose other than to show how worn an engine can get and still run. I have seen some pretty bad ones as I'm sure you all have as well. This one is out of a ms310 that paid for itself five times over. Goes to show, if it doesn't lean out and or stick a ring, they will keep on a truckin.

I've seen a few with a sharpened intake skirt like that!

I've also run some saws that were pretty low comp and they still ran. . . Not well mind you, but ran.

I have a 66 here from a local Timberbeast. It cut 1,000 loads it's first year, then was a backup for 8-9 more years. The cylinder coating was completely gone on the intake side!

Like ya say, that saw didn't owe him a thing!
