    Stihl MS251 clutch drum stuck

    Hi! My Stihl MS251 won't pump chain oil anymore. I started to take the saw apart to check the oil pump, however, I don't manage to get the clutch drum off. I can lift it about 5 mm, but then it stops. I can turn the needle bearing with a thin screwdriver, and the drum spins freely when the...

    MS460 mods

    Just bought a MS 460. I'm going to have a 28" bar on it. I occasionally cut some oak for my smoker and lots of folks around here seem to be scared of tackling a larger tree (even when it is on the ground). I was tired of doing it with my MS 290 so I got a slightly more big boy saw. What sort of...

    Stumped (pun intended) stihl ms361

    I figure one of you "AS" geniuses have to know this one. Because I'm stumped. I am trying to figure out if the ms361 shared any parts with the 036 or if I have some sort of Frankensaw situation going on. A few months back, I had finished rebuilding my trusty old ms361 that was the first new saw...

    Damage to saw by starting up and not using

    Hi My company does regular weekly checks on a Stihl saw by basically starting it up and running it at high revs for 20 seconds and then shutting down. It rarely gets used for cutting. Can someone tell me if this is bad for the saw and how it is bad, and also if so if there is any evidence or...
