I found it interesting that my 260 had a bad flywheel side seal too. That was a couple years ago though. Just like Niks, the clutch side was fine. I believe Niks leak was worse though. I'm surprised we didn't smoke this saw running it the other night.

Where can one get a puller like that and how much do they run? I could use a puller like that many, many times in the last few years.
Way too many saws.
Anyone looked at one of the Harbor Freight Seal Pullers? At $19.99, this seems to be a little more in my budget. I've been using a old screwdriver with a notch, but I'd like to find something a little bit more consistent.

The older saws I've seen have double lip crank seals or two seals back to back - one lip in and one lip out. I figured this was to seal from both directions since you have pressure and vacuum at different points in the cycle. Is it conceivable that you could have a pressure leak that may not show up as a vac leak and vice-versa?

legislating the wealthy out of freedom.... When half of the people get the idea that
they do not have to work because the other half is going to
take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea
that it does no good to work because somebody else is going
to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the
end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."

I seen them vids on there and I always wondered how much of a job it was to change them out, I have a 046 that needs them bad and has been sitting because of it for about 6 years
