    Hello to all from Bulgaria. I'm new here. I am a mechanic by trade and have "retired" to Bulgaria 3 years ago at age 36 where I live off grid and do my own thing. If there is anything I can advise on, feel free to ask. Over that time I had accumulated a few saws. I have a 028 avs wood boss...

    Stihl 028 w/SEM coil

    Sorry if this has been covered already. I have a 028 with the SEM coil and I believe the coil is bad. I ordered the 000-400-1300 which should work from what I've read on here. Do I need to turn the flywheel to the Bosch keyway or leave it on SEM?

    Mystery Screw Stihl Wood Boss 028 AV

    I've been searching the forum all morning and found a huge amount of really useful information, but so far no answer to the question I came here looking for. Maybe someone can end my agony, haha. I was recently gifted a Stihl Wood Boss 028 AV that was leaking bar oil. So I tore it down and...

    028 AV Woodboss: Runs terrible, blows gas into the air filter???

    A while back, a guy I go to church with gave me an 028 AV Woodboss EQ. He thought it was blown up for whatever reason. It was free and came with a STIHL hard case, so I didn't care. Turns out the plate under the carb diaphragm was completely full of sawdust. It came out like a biscuit. The...

    STIHL 028 Wood Boss AV EQ.....sitting for years, what do I do first???

    The other day I saw my neighbor at church and long story, short....he dropped off a STIHL 028 Wood Boss AV with the "electronic quickstop" He claimed that his dad had it for years and then passed it on to him, he ran the guts out of it until it started "loosing power once it got hot." He also...

    Want to Sell Stihl 028

    Bought it in a lot of junk Old school one (all metal) runs, but has trouble idling (see video) I don't own a compression tester and haven't cut any wood with it, but it feels like it has compression when pull starting (pretty difficult). Just a regular 028 (non-super or wood-boss). It oils but...

    Stihl 028 Sealant, gasket, or both

    Hello to all chainsaw fixers. I am working on a Stihl 028av with 44mm piston When I disassembled it I found gaskets in there. So for that reason, I ordered some OEM replacements. I have read some threads in here about not using gaskets for reassembly, but instead just using the Dirko HT or...

    STIHL 028 cylinder interchangeability...038???

    I've got a STIHL 028 AV SUPER Wood Boss with electronic quick stop, that has a bad piston and cylinder. Apparently the 028 is one of the few STIHL models that haven't been duplicated by the Chinese, so a replacement P&C would run me upwards of about $90. I was about to trade it off or part it...

    Want to buy Stihl 028 WB or similar parts saw

    I recently acquired an 028WB in a box. The saw is in overall decent shape, but it is completely apart and there are no screws, no buffers or buffer plugs, no wrap handle, and no carburetor. I am looking for the rattiest 028 parts saw you have. The one with little to no usable parts or with the...

    Hey Everyone. I just recently snagged a NOS case/crank/bearings for a Stihl 028 Super and was lucky to also find a NOS clutch cover too. I was wondering if anyone has any extra parts for this thing. New Old Stock is preferred (especially for the pull-start assembly and orange shrouds), but...
