I got a box of parts to build into 5 cube race saw a while back, well there's no 5 cube races anywhere
except down south. So instead of building a race saw I'm putting it together as just a firewood saw.

It's a complete ground up rebuild, new crank, bearings, gaskets, seals.

I've got a Meteor piston, OEM ring for it.

I made a trip down to my local saw porter and had him do a port job on the 288 cylinder.

I'm hoping to run a 8 pin sprocket with a 32" bar.

I might even find that extra pee somewhere too.

I'll post some pics tomorrow

Waiting on Clutch cover, Piston, and seals.
After laying everything out I need wrist pin bearing, intake elbow, starter pawl, bar spikes, and chain adjuster.




It's not a XP or SE, but a 281 Magnum.

I have a low top intake and maybe some if the other bits you need.

I've had my fun with big ported saws. They're more noise than they're worth.....

I completely agree, this 288 will be mild more than wild. Like a tweeked stock saw more than the
225 psi and 15,000 RPM "woods ported" stock appearing muffler saws guys are running.

My 394 has a modded muffler, and it's definitely noisy but it keeps it a bit cooler when milling. Not a big fan of a louder saw these days but if it serves a function, other than making more power, I'm down with it.


Someone needs to build a silent saw. Noise is overrated. All I wanna hear is the chain cutting the wood, nothing else.

I've done both... I prefer wild but it has been deemed unpractical by some.

Wild

I've recently been playing with tube style outlets that flow well but have some sound deadening properties.

Some of those older, bigger electric saws are pretty quiet and cut good. They have a lot of torque.

Yeah for sure. I'm amazed actually at what little noise is produced by a stock 281 or 394 or whatever - definitely quieter than one might expect....

Will your saw have a dreaded Jonsered fuel cap on it like Jack's?

True to the saw, I like it.
