    Stihl 038 7 digit serial number

    Just picked up an old 38 Av. Was trying to see what my dealer could come up with by checking s/n but it’s only 7 digits. The only thing I’ve found searching is that it’s pre 1980. I’m hoping there are some folks here that have run into one of these 038’s and have some specs on this saw. There...

    Hi gents, Found a good .325 bar in dad's shed.Was going to try it on my 038 or 044 as I have never used a 325 chain before. But i can only get a 9 pin standard (7/8"ID) locally. Is this 9 pin an over kill for the job or will it drive ok? Thanks in advance,Chris.

    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...
