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.
hi guys another newbe here. hope am in the right place, ave got a stihl 08s, when pulling the cord to start it, it just comes out and returns, it doesnt want to turn the engine,ive replaced the nylon inner ring but that didnt help. *help*
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.
