    got a 026 that you guys have been helping with since i was a newbie(still am) after trying all the things you guys have mentioned I'm pretty sure the crank seals are bad. Regardless the saw is in rough shape, I got a brand new husky last year and thought I'd tear down the saw completely, mod it a little, repaint it etc. Didn't know if there was generic step by step to follow or if each saw was too specific.

    You can of course book-mark it on your computer, but you can also subscribe to it (click on "thread tools", and go from there).

    Great sticky thread, gents! I planned on doing a bunch of reading and then getting to work, but I think I may have to just sit and look at Chris's avatar for a while.....:dizzy:

    How 'bout a list of abbreviations? Some of this stuff I don't understand. I sawed with the same ole Stihl for 20 years & didn't keep up on saws.

    Examples: MS 441 C-Q STIHL Magnum® Chain Saw

    MS?
    C-Q.......C? Q?

    I see other things like AV, etc. Perhaps a list of what these mean would be nice, surely it would help me.

    You know if this thread was on the front page it would dead stop quite a few monotonous threads.

    For those who are wondering about sealant products for 2 cycle engines here is a good thread on the topic. It's seems that Permatex Motoseal #29132 is the forum consensus as the best aftermarket product for sealing cylinder jugs and crankcases.
