Thats what this here grasshopper was guessing... wanted some validation from the pro's out there. Will part it out to my other saws. Thanks.Almost all chainsaw cylinders are plated and can't be overbored. Probably the cost to fix the saw will excede the cost of a new similar saw. That is what is called a clamshell saw. The cylinder is part of the crankcase. You must pretty much disassemble the entire saw to change the cylinder. By the time you buy a cylinder, piston, bearings and seals you could buy the saw new.
