The 070 arrived yesterday and the 07S today both from E bay and as described, 07S even came with a 20" bar & chain plus spare new Stihl .404 chain which the guy gave me ! We all read stories of rip offs and misrepresented saws on E bay so at least they are not all bad !
When I stripped the 070 I decided to replace the air filter and had been told that the starter mech needed work, clutch was worn and the chain side cover was damaged. So rang my local dealer not expecting any joy but to my and his suprise the Stihl distributors for Ireland had all the parts on the self ! side cover, clutch, air filter and starter ring. We suspect it was like a scene from Indiana Jones when they go looking in an old dusty warehouse ! The side cover had been in stock for almost ten years and was the only one left same with starter ring and clutch.
The 070 has electronic ign. anyone know if it is common to any other models, it is a Bosch unit 1217 280 006 ? saw is running fine but would be good to know. Thanks
