Just finished makin a 281 into a 288,, tag and all!!
Got a 460 steel awaiting new slug.
Just did top of a steel 661, it had snagged a ring
Got another 288 got a 281 top for it, awaiting a slug.
It could use a flywheel side crankcase as its a little busted out by the oil hole and leaks a little oil,, still useable.

So you made a 281 into a 288 and are going to make a 288 into a 281? You may have too much free time.

-STILL have a certain someone's 82cc Mac to rebuild.

-Got's muh 288XP that needs a tank vent fix so it stops pissing fuel whenever it's tipped on the right side.

-Got's muh 2101XP to refresh with crank seals, fuel/vent lines, and carb rebuild.

-Got's an NOS full wrap JRed 2071 to install the missing parts that a dealer cannibalized from to fix other saws while it sat on the shelf fer 20+ years.

-Got's a chinee 365 'replacement parts kit' to assemble and play wif.

-Got's a 268XP to rebuild.

-Got's several Homelite, Poulan, Mac, Husky, and Pioneer saws to rebuild or refresh.

-Got's my Massey Ferguson MF2200 backhoe to open up it's rear end, replace the broken part(s), and then refresh with MANY new hydro hoses and lines.

-Got's a mystery Bolens GT (most likely a QT16) that needs a carb rebuild and seat replacement.

-Got's The War Dept's IHC Cub Cadet 129 that needs a new seat and a replacement hydro cooling fan (old 'un is missin a blade).

Have most of the parts needed fer these various projects. BIG project is to organize/clean out the shop, install more shelves, and build more work benches so I can actually WORK ON these projects over the winter.....
