    Stihl 441 oil leak... is this an issue?

    I’ve been storing my saws as photographed. Been doing it for several months no problem. Just noticed this morning the 441 is leaking oil. Appears to be coming out of the spilt in the case.

    Any reason not to drill my own oil hole in new bar

    Mounts totally fine. I can use the old (bent) bar as a jig to make sure it’s all lined up. It’s an Oregon bar I bought off eBay said fits “echo, Poulan, craftsmen, Shindaiwa and listed all the models” I thought I saw 490 but in review I don’t see it. My fault. Everything seems fine except no...

    Any reason not to drill my own oil hole in new bar

    Looks like I ordered the wrong replacement bar for my Echo 490. The one I got doesn’t have oil holes. I don’t want to be bothered with sending it back etc. any reason not to drill my own holes? Seems very straight forward and probably faster than repacking it to ship back.

    SOLD!!!! Stihl MS260/MS361

    So what's the story with the saws? Mexico still has new 260's and 361's? I realize both are good saws but wouldn't Stihl want their latest products in every market? Do they send old excess inventory to countries without EPA regulations? How can you be sure they aren't knock offs? I'm curious...

    Timber Fallers Saw?

    I’m dropping big firs and cutting oak for selling firewood with a 441. I pick it up over my 660 9 times out of 10 because of the weight advantage. If I need a bar bigger than 28 it’s the 660

    MS180 Adjustable Carb

    Successfully did the swap to the WT-215. I would love to see some photos of others muffler mods. Or ideas on what you did. All the old photos don’t show up any longer on this thread. Tuning seemed optimal at 2600 rpms at idle and a steady 14200 max. Also went to a 7t rim sprocket.
