257,261.  Best thing is 261 two differences between 261 & 262.  261 has dished piston 262 has flat top piston.  Both 48mm bore.  Both use same cyl.   262 has 3 shoe clutch 261 has 2 shoe clutch.

How close are the 254's?? 254,257,261,262 all have 34mm stokes...in very similar cases. Are the cranks the same?? I have four sets of 254 bottom ends in various states of degeneration from sitting in a barn, two good and one maybe good cranks, but all the case bearings are ruined ... was thinking of blending an tweaked AM 262 top end with a popup piston build to one, using a 242 air filter to allow it to be stuffed under its very weather faded 254 top cover... and making a "chicken chit to chicken soup" saw for kicks to see if I can make what should be scrap cut wood...:)

The 154/254 cranks have a shorter con rod, otherwise they are the same - except for minor changes trough "generations" of them, that didn't happen at the same time with all models. I don't think there are any compatibility issues caused by those minor changes, only because of the different con rods.
