Odd. According to the 560 and 562 IPL'S both share the same clutch drum and bearing. But they don't  share the same oil pump ring gear.

.....

Only trouble gearing is limited with the 9 pin rim as that's  the only .325 rim sprocket that will fit the 562's standard 7 spline clutch drum.
Can a 560 or Jonsered equivalent  small 7 spline clutch setup fit a 562XP ?

.....

As I said to Chris I'd  like to try other smaller .325 rims but the 562 standard 7 spline drum only allows a 9 pin rim which is a tad larger then a 8 pin 3/8.
Do 560 or Jonsered equivalent  small 7 spline clutch setups exchange with the 562?

I assume that will work fine, as both drum options are listed in several IPLs for this saw family (if not all?).

Thanks I was waiting for you to chip in SawTroll.
I have the earlier 2011 560 and 562 IPL'S and their clutch #s are the same but their oiler drive ring gears are different....odd
Nothing to confirm which is small 7 spline or standard 7 spline

Look at frame B in the attached 2013 560 IPL. The set listed as .325x7 includes the small spline drum, the one listed as 3/8x7 includes the standard spline drum.

The drum kits are the same between the models - the oiler gears are different between the models, but not between the different drums on the same model. If anyone knows for sure why it is this way, it likely is Spike60....

Thanks Niko.
From my 2011 560 IL the small drum kit went from 575 26 10-01 to your 2013 #575 26 10-03
Same with my 2011 562 IPL.  THE oiler gear and bearing are the same .
So whatever is available here in Canada I'll  order . But seeing the 560 is not sold here I may have to go to the Jonsered   version .
Any #s on it or are they the same?

Btw, The 560xp comes standard with a small spline .325 setup in Europe, and it isn't really common to convert to 3/8".

Chris,
I always use 40:1 mix and mercilessly keep my chains sharp. Probably why I'm  having good service out of the 562, never had it checked and upgraded by the dealership either.
Don't know about the rev limiter as I never noticed it, Rev boost does everything for me I need.
I like the .325 chain as it's  close in cutter size to the 76LG I've run. But I only  have  a few loops of the long discontinued 76 chain but have lots of .325
Only trouble gearing is limited with the 9 pin rim as that's  the only .325 rim sprocket that will fit the 562's standard 7 spline clutch drum.
Can a 560 or Jonsered equivalent  small 7 spline clutch setup fit a 562XP ?

Bob,
Thanks, I got lots of shop time lately as we're  getting lots of rain.

I was referring to the boring mod videos everyone's making on YT, not yours and Walts...you guys do it right.
I may try larger holes later but so far happy. As I said to Chris I'd  like to try other smaller .325 rims but the 562 standard 7 spline drum only allows a 9 pin rim which is a tad larger then a 8 pin 3/8.
Do 560 or Jonsered equivalent  small 7 spline clutch setups exchange with the 562?

 I don't think even I can make a video for 15 minutes or so on the simple but effective muffler mod as defined by Holman Tree! It reminds me...physics really doesn't change although the methods used to convey a message has over time.

AND much of what many currently are trying to accomplish with modifications has been a practice for a very long time in the performance community. I remember a few years back getting an article about building a big Jonsered .. for competition. From Holman Tree. AND it strikes me every time I see a "new" video or thread on complex mods, how the goal ultimately is to achieve something similar with physics of their system working compression/squish band/ etc. as is articulated in that 1970's era article. Of course in that build there was a significant amount of machine work, especially relative to the combustion chamber. Bottom line. Physics is physics. And some have literally seen it all...

And its nice to see nice effective simple modifications that make improvements WITHOUT machining... mods that can be done with simple hand tools.  :P

HolmenTree , I sure like your little Norwegian flag keychain fob! Would love to find one of the Danish flag.
Thanks mcourtney , my Aunt from Oslo gave me that key fob 30 years ago. I think of it as a good luck charm.
Are you in Minnesota as I notice Pomme de Terre on your avatar?

No I'm in Missouri but I recognized the flag as one of the Scandinavian flags , common heritage I suppose.

Whew ! , glad you clarified that Willard , I didn't think you would but your pics looked like you had done it bolted to the saw :D

Going to try that MM on my 555 at some point as well as the 550 and others at some point . I'm not into porting saws , I feel it best to leave them near stock....but that's just me .
yes on the 40:1 mix , I think that makes a big difference with longevity in the long run provided something else doesn't cause a lean issue .
I AM NOT BRAND LOYAL !

Most all of my saws have modified mufflers, but I haven't got around to swiss cheesing my Jonsered 2260 muffler yet. I typically like using a husky 266 deflector and just bolt it onto the side for a dual port, but the 2260\562 muffler doesn't really seem to be a good fit for that. I'll definitely drill out under the deflector though!

Can you remove any material through the inlet of the muffler?

Yes Happy  Birthday Chris

No there's nothing worth removing in front of the inlet of the muffler  . Just a deflector  plate with lots of opening at the bottom of the muffler . If one was to woods port the cylinder sure remove the deflector but the issue is the extra small outlet that needs to be enlarged.
For just a muffler mod the deflector is a must to keep the decimal levels down.

Decibel, I presume. Some auto correct likely is playing games with you?  :)

Ah,Yes, I remember the oil pump gear being different now. My buddy logs and his gear stripped and I thought I'd just swap my 2260 gear but it wouldn't work. The 562 gear is thicker.

I have seen claims that the 562 crank is longer on the clutch side, but the evidence is lacking - and I fail to see any reason it should be that way? There is a slight difference in the oilers (the 562 puts out more at max, for 28" bars), but again I fail to see how that should make a thicker oiler gear necessary?  ???

I haven't looked into how it is with the 556 vs. the 555.

Thanks Walter.
Back in the day a few holes stabbed into the front of a muffler with a scrench was a muffler mod :D
Walter that Jonsereds 111S hot saw build documentary from 1981-'84 I sent you was a good read. Especially with the homemade cast iron cylinder sleeve, detachable cylinder head and go kart carb.
Sad to see the saw ended up in Wayne Suttons chainsaw museum as the builder was scared of liability issues from the highest bidder.
