Will do.  Issue seems to be I need to replace my “A” piston with a “B”.   So trying to source that as well as a new gasket set.
Who are you speaking to wrt the piston?

For the piston we’re going to see if a Wiseco is going to fit.  Failing that, will have to import a Wossner.

Wiseco doesn’t fit.  Importing the Wossner. Also ordered a complete gasket set from Athena.eu

Not sure.  The mechanic simply said it wasn’t suitable.

Yep. Apparently Husky used to make an a, b, and c piston.  A being the smallest and c being the largest.  There was an “A” in there and we needed a larger one now — a “B” which they don’t produce any more of course.  Hence the need for the Woessener. So probably, yes, the bore wasn’t suitable.

Sure you'll find the B piston!

So the A piston is the original piston?

How many kms on your 610?

The A was the original.  I just bought this and never rode it yet unfortunately.  I think it has 23,0000km or so if I remember correctly.  Was a noisy engine when I got it.  Expecting it back soon so I can actually ride it!
