    Nope. I knew the washer had an inside and outside, and was thinking that maybe he had it backwards and was causing the failure. I couldn't remember which way it went until a pic was posted.

    So you got this saw from someone as a non runner? Could it be someone has been in there and replaced parts in the powerhead before you got it? You keep ordering worm gears and you keep melting them.
    Could it be that something else in the equation, something you did not replace when you built the saw up- is either not OEM or not 044 and you are trying to mate up a part that is not compatible?

    Do as lone wolf says, get a good oiling 044 and compare all the parts to this worm gear frying setup- something is not right.

    With a digital vernier and a pair of reading glasses! Check everything that can affect the thickness or end play in there.
