Stihl 042AV

I have an 042AV chainsaw with a 25" bar. It used to run well, with no problems and by and by, it started exhibiting signs of plugged jets. I tried to clean the walbro carb (WS3?) but ran into some difficulty and on the advice of an online chainsaw expert, I looked around for a walbro ws25 and found a brand new, old stock carb. I put this on, but had no need for a saw as big and powerful as this is, so it sat on a shelf in my basement. The carb has never seen gas. Fast forward some years... Read more ..read more

Bar and Chain Oil
The Chainsaw Forum

If you are a pro or an amateur using your chainsaws two or more days a week, what bar and chain oil (brand) do you use? Note that I am NOT asking for the best oil or even a discussion on why you use what you use. The search function above dumped half of the words in the title of this post as being too short or too common so I could not dig into the oil threads here. Sorry about that ..read more

My 031 has a 16” bar with a 3/8 , 60 link chain. I want to convert it to a bar that takes a 64 link so i I can swap out chains with my Dolmars, but the closest I can find is an 18” bar that uses a 66 link chain. Anyone have a solution for this ..read more

Been a while since I posted on here.... My dad's MS180 is useless at 9k in altitude. With no carb adjustments it doesn't have a chance. I'm betting the chainsaw loonys have come up with a fix for my problem. Carburetor replacement? Is there any carb that bolts in without modification. Or what all is entailed if there is a carb that requires some mods? Thankss in advance ..read more

Hello everyone, I'm 66 years old and have been cutting up my own firewood for about 30 years now. I run both Husqvarna and Stihl chainsaws. I was refurbishing and repairing chainsaws for a while, but not so much anymore, as I'm getting older. I like some of the older saws and I like to help keep them going and running strong. I'm here to learn, share and interact with others with similar interests. I tried one of the other popular chainsaw forums and decided it just wasn't the place for me... Read more ..read more

MS440 - Seal Leak or Rebuild? Saw is not running.
The Chainsaw Forum

Hi. I have a friend's MS440 to repair that I believe needs an engine overhaul. He owns a professional tree service and I suspect the saw is at the end of life on the current motor. I tested compression and got 60-65 psi which is know is well below what is required for it to start. It raised to 60 PSI quickly during the test but struggled to get above 65 PSI while cranking the crap out of it and I gave up after about a dozen pulls and it not going higher than 65. The engine was not running... Read more ..read more
