Solo Twin 110cc model identification features

Post by mcbob » Feb 8th, '14, 02:29

Just scabbed these pics they show some of the differences between the 100cc and the 110cc model.

Image

Check the difference in the end of the front handle bar and the top cyl shroud as it's cut further back to allow for better cooling

Image

If you think you might have check the bore size as to being sure

The forward one in the photo's but be careful unless you measure the bore you cant be certain

The 100cc version is 40mm x 40mm

The 110cc version is 42mm x 40mm

I wonder what the 110cc version is? Bigger bore or stroke?

They are Ricks saws we have been discussing them on facebook

110cc = 42 x 40 ..... Rick has measured and confirmed

It's the one with the riveted cover on the side of the shroud ... note not all like this are the 110cc version the other difference I see is a 2 bolt attachment on the front handle bar

Check through our library and you will see some members already could have them but measure the bore size to be certain.

You should notice the side of the top cowl has been cut back to allow more airflow and the attachment point for the front handle bar has two bolts and is of a larger diameter and goes straight over the front of the saw instead of curving back.

You will hopefully also notice in this brocure that the twin illustrated has the straight over handlebar and the brocure is dated as 1969

When Rick read through his paperwork theres no model number for the 110cc mentioned only referred to as "The Solo Saw"

I asked Rick Helsel to help us out here and we can try to pitch in what we have.
I know many here has parts of this puzzle. If we all help out I am sure we will figure this out eventually.

Thanks for posting the Twin IPL Magnus it seems to only confuse one even more so as it shows the straight handle bar but the later type top shroud and chance of getting a larger version of this ipl so I can see the numbers a bit clearer

Sorry but the one I have now is the same but thanks anyway
