    ms261c-m mtronic issue

    ok, here we go; I’ve searched thru and read a bunch about the ignition coil, mtronic carb reset, etc. here’s what I did... 1) New wiring harness from coil to carb servo connection- old one had two yellow & red wires cut. New Wires look good. 2) gapped flywheel with a business card...made sure...

    Stihl 020AV Super Idle question and manual request

    So my old 020AV Super that I havent used in a few years wont idle.. Starts great. Cuts great at high RPM, no issues with that at all. But dies instantly if I let go of the throttle. Low and high adjustments about 1 1/2 out. Finicky adjustments. Idle screw doesnt seem to do anything really...

    Stihl 031 AV Idle Racing

    I'm hoping for some second opinions on a saw diagnosis that I've done. I got a Stihl 031AV that has recently had the carb rebuilt and was running successfully but now the saw races at idle even with the idle screw backed all the way out. I am suspecting an air leak but I have no tools to test...

    Factory Idle Speeds

I know tuning to ear is a better practice, but I need a quantifiable range to use as a baseline for the ones...

    Stihl 038 Magnum 2 chain spins at idle. Ordered new tension springs but ...

    First time post for long time lurker. I've learned a lot from the site. I have a craigslist find Stihl 038 AV Magnum 2 that chain spins at idle. Although the clutch springs look fine, I'm going to replace them as based on other threads I'm convinced that's the problem. Clutch shoes are in...

    warranty service expectations?

    I've got a 4 month old MS250. I've had like 6 tanks of fuel thru it. Lately its stalling when I let it go back to idle. I suspect that all that needs to happen is a small adjustment of the idle speed or mixture. Is this kind of thing covered in the warranty? It still runs great at higher...
