    Jeff,
    Just one metal plate on the Stihl's. Usually two nylon sliders on the inside of the clutch cover take care of the outside. Good idea to remove the flat head screw on the inside metal guard and blow that area out with an air compressor. Over time, lots of gunk builds up behind it from the saw dust and oiler and it can slow or all together stop the oiler from working properly. Just be careful you don't blow the gunk back into the oiler and plug it up. GLWS

    Guys,
    Jeff is about as conscious and as strait shooting as they come- buy with confidence! ;)

    Thank you for the vote of confidance S Tebo. I should not even try to sell anything i am a nervous wreck ha ha ha. I worry abut making sure the potential buyer knows all the truth about the saw. One time i sold a Mini Mac and a Homelite to a guy here a dealer / sponcer. I told him i would just send him the saws and if he wanted them after he ran them awhile then he could send me the money later.... Good thing for me he pointed out the folly in that plan ha ha. He insisted to pay first then send the saws and i did. That may have stopped me from getting myself into a bad situation later on.

    Incase people are watching this post i have decided that the saw is missing a few small parts. So just ordered them from a stihl dealer nearby. The parts i orders are, one large retaining ring clutch side 31 mm x 1.2mm, one Needle Sleeve ( needle bearing) and 3 spline screws 4 mm x 12mm to hold on plastic cover behind the oil plate. The saw was missing 2-3 of them. The price for the parts will be added to the cost of the saw when they are installed. Looks like about $ 15-20 dollars all told.
    EDIT I have also decided to up grade to a rim sprocket drive instead of a spur that is there now and all worn out. I have this part now but I am still waiting for the Bearing and the screws . I will show you the rim drive that I just received. Thanks Jeff
