    That’s the TSB-Huztl660-001 update lol. That was a long time ago. I thought they fixed that? Are they running old cast molds?

    I built mine a few years back...just put up with a marginal adjuster until it finally failed completely...I now have a good sized Oak to drop soon, so I was getting the 660 back to fighting form again.

    I built mine a couple months ago and it seems ok.... But I have not got to fire it up yet. I put a bar on it and it adjust well... I wonder when it gets polished in, if it gets more play in it.

    Yours maybe ok if your careful with it. Their metal is soft. The ones with to much play were obvious from the beginning.

    That’s good to know I hoped they fixed that. My last orange one ran fine even after about 10 gallons I ran through it. I gave it to a guy a couple months back and it’s still going.
    The prebuilt blue one I had finally failed when it snagged a ring.

    I ordered mine in early December 2019 and assembled over the holidays.

    The saw works beautifully and based on my experience so far nothing wrong with the adjuster as long as the bar holding nuts are loosened properly like they should!

    I did use OEM wrist pin needle bearing and ended up using Husqvarna decompression valve after trying a Stihl OEM one which failed to work to my liking.


    The crankshaft installing tool & crankshaft centering etc. information on this site is much appreciated!

    He’s a vid of me noodling with my 660 clone day or two after building it.
    Yes I have a 16” bar on it. Now it has either a 24 or 36 depending on what I’m doing

    I had a few minutes to look at this yesterday...there was a ton of slop in the slot that holds the back end of the screw/gear...I was able to make a tiny shim to put under the back of the screw/gear (about 0.30" thick) and that now holds the 2 gears together well meshed...
