MMWS Replacement Stihl 066 cylinder 54mm

Available NOW At HLSupply. (You can use the link at bottom of this post.)

A better, 54 millimeter bore cylinder for the Stihl 066 was 8 months in the making. We have Cross Performance Cylinders and Mastermind Worksaws to thank for this beast.

Cross Performance got Randy Evans, a.k.a. Mastermind, to analyze a new oem top end kit for a Stihl 066. Certain that he could improve it, ol' Peg Legs put it on the lathe and stuff.

With some port timing tweaks, better port shapes, and now boasting a bump in compression with better squish band design to increase squish velocity, the cylinder was sent back to Cross Performance.

The beefed up MMWS Stihl 066 cylinder prototype went to Cross Performance for manufacturing and a mold was made out of it.

Unfortunately, when a newly manufactured replacement Stihl 066 cylinder prototype was shipped back to Mastermind Worksaws, it was deemed that the exhaust port shape was not up to Randy's standards. Randy did some changes and sent it back to Cross for remanufacturing in due time.

The next rendition was really good.....and the rest is history.

...And here it is...

AboveTheNorm Assembling Stihl MS250 Chainsaw Parts

How to Install Aftermarket Parts on a Stihl MS250

It's #AboveTheNorm

To summarize the steps of How to Install Aftermarket Parts on a Stihl MS250: There's the thing that goes here, and the hammer that secures it there. We have a bar crammed into place, and a chain loop that's a wee bit loose.  Don't forget that weird lookin' carburetor, oh, and a pulley for the string on the wrong side of the saw. VROOM!
