    That will come in handy from time to time. You are in control. They even have the seal puller.

    Guess they know with their saws we will need them lol lol. That's so funny. I am bad.

    Seriously having the right tool you can proceed confidently. Much less cussing. I have the Stihl tools and spent a bundle on them. Those are priced Right.

    Be sure you are turning the adapter the right way or you will screw the tip up, my son turned it wrong and uh oh. I had to replace the screw. Every Stihl guy needs a set if they don't have some. You just hope you never need them but if you do the job is made easy and the result is great compared to removing seals with screws lol

    The older C clamp style case splitter doesn't fit an MS660(clone). The crank's too fat.

    I thought they made one that size, I thought they came in two sizes, good to know. They have the correct multi saw splitter. That's great to care for the saws we own. Lower cost makes it easier to have one before you need it

    The 660 is a fatty, lol

    I am new to the forum, joined to learn more about building a clone MS660 and to mill some lumber. My kit came in today, hurrah! Unfortunately there is a crack in the crankcase on the PTO side. I attached a picture, looks like a pin that holds a spring for the brake. Any advice? I plan to contact them in the morning, my question is should I build it anyway or is this going to fail from the crack. Thanks in advance for any help you all can provide.

    Welcome,

    Return it. Brake pin. Will be under pressure.

    They will ask for pictures and then tell you to use it. Magnesium is what the case is made out of. Great until it cracks.

    To be happy don't. There was another guy recently same problem, same response.

    Tell them to replace it or your credit card company will charge them back. Play hardball if needed.

    You have a chance to make it great. I hope you enjoy the journey. I have. Here if you need help.

    Yes to what Bedford said. They jerk you around hoping you will give up. Don't give up.

    thanks for the advice...There is not a way to email from what I can tell from their website, I have to create an account and either chat or call them.

    The best way is to use the email that shows in the transaction in PayPal. It maybe the one you were given. Don't take anything for granted.

    The website has a message system. It might require an email.

    Provide photo
    Provide a written statement of issue and replacement request.
    Make a PayPal case, wait a few days for it to be registered
    Make the chargeback request with cc.

    You do that so they have a mark on their PayPal which effects their costs with PayPal. PayPal is their lifeline. That helps everyone behind you and will long term help correct this problem they have.

    Should I request both crankcase halves? It appears that the surface where the cylinder seals to the crankcase is machined on both halves at the same time. otherwise with their loose tolerances, there could be a leak. Thanks for all the advice so far, I sent an email describing the problem earlier today, will update everyone of the progress.
    Thanks!

    I know what you mean. In a world where money did not matter. I would order another off eBay from them you are guaranteed the correct undamaged item and make them pick both of your kit ones up and give them your eBay order number so they know. They may not care and still not want to help. They are weird.

    Chances are high if you got one half from them it would fit if there is no big lag in time.

    Their cases are great when not damaged. The case is the heart of the saw. So your concern is warranted and it's nice to see another builder interested in a perfect outcome. Cause you can make it happen and produce a hell of a saw.

    It'll take you a long time to get it from Hutzel just have your credit card charge it back and order it from HL Supply it'll come in quicker and I've been getting better parts from them
    Hutzel just stopped replying to me about my cases being warped and not made properly

    Hi everyone. I'm new to the site and new to kit building. Just ordered a 660 kit and a few other parts. Haven't decided between Hyway or Meteor C\P yet. Have heard both are good.

    Welcome, Meteor is the only aftermarket that is close to oem. Hyway is good.

    Hi Bedford. Thanks for the Vacuum pump link. I was looking at one on eBay for $27 but the one from HD might be better quality.
