got the 162 back together with new piston & used fine thread crankshaft w/new bearings.runs good.
i remember when i first started selling these,they had a heat problem.my cure back then was to cut the side window in the top cover out.
i added the improved heat shield to this saw.also the piston in this model was known to break,as i changed about 30-40 of them and not 1 cylinder was ever damaged.i just split the case,washed the bearings and put in new piston in and re-assembled.funny how when the bore got increased on the next upgrade,when the piston broke it broke the cylinder also.....so much for "improvements"
