The husky saws my sister and her husband have are nice and make my poulan 18" look like a pos. That said, do not run the huskies at 60-1 like the manuals says. You hit the nail on the head when you said they leaned them out too much to pass the california emissions. My brother in law melted a piston on his husqvarna 346 2-3 years ago. I was able to lightly hone the cylinder (it has either some wierd nickel or chrome coating on the cylinder wall) to remove the melted piston streaks and replace the piston to get it going. I told him to run everything at 30-1 and he hasn't had a problem yet. He hasn't met a piece of machinery he couldn't break so that very well could be the problem, but there was also an aftermarket replacement piston out on the market for his newer model. Ask me about his 4WD tractor some time.
