    Another consideration, if you are producing powder you might want to switch to flock like the other photo. The mesh on the lighter filter can pass some powder.

    I'm considering the kit Hutzl offers 038/380/381. Did the clone the farmertec distributor provided you come from Hutzl. If Farmertec didn't supply it who did? How's it running now? Does the displacement correspond to the 381?
    It's supposedly got a little bit more displacement than the 440 series. Is it 72cc as far as you know
    Thank you.

    I doubt it. You can put the bigger jug on the 440 kit and come out with 72cc if that is what you wanted.

    Should you consider that. Ask them before you order and make sure the engine is not assembled in the kit.

    This kit was a bust for me. I kept finding things wrong. I kept being defeated. I kept coming back to it. The last big reveal was when I discovered the flash in the impulse channel while putting on the 6th carb, an oem that time. I thought I had hit pay dirt. Troubleshooting and not getting where I needed to be especially after that discover was devastating. A subscriber to my youtube channel brought it up and I took another look. This time I blame the kit and I have figured out the, what, when and why. Its been over a year and the preciseness of the work I did is comprehensive. The cylinder was so out of whack it caused the main problem and then that opens the door to the other. Its very interesting. I have hope that I can overcome the secondary problem(s). I will discuss those in the last video of the series. Its a very sturdy saw. Much heftier than the 440 or the 660, those are runners. I am unsure if huztl still has their storage trailer still packed to the ceiling with unsold kits ready to ship and packed like mine or if they unpacked the kits and replaced and fixed the problems. My gut tells me they did not lift a finger. As it unfolds if someone sees a solution, when that time comes, a long term solution, speak up please.

    got the notice that the thread was active a thread I've been watching so I just atch the video for the first time and of course you sound very knowledgeable and very competent you mentioned a flash in the impulse I don't know what that phrase means does that mean there was a impediment a blockage in the impulse line and then you didn't mention that you fixed it did you remit out or knock a little peace out and how did you make out I don't see any additional videos with the new cylinder posted yet sounds like you really had your hands full and you did try everything what is a flash in the impulse line and how did you fix it

    The videos will rollout starting tonight and appear about every two to three days on a schedule about 9pm. It starts with the chainsaw disassembly and will roll on through to the final fixes.

    The impulse is a little heart beat that is produced in combustion and it drives the diaphragm in the carb to pump fuel. It was an unseen untouched channel connected differently from model to model. So the aftermarket handle had some left over material in this channel that when it got damp with fuel would obstruct the flow of pressure. You normally can't see it. I caught a glimpse. I think I explained the rest.

    Walt, I think your full of it. Sometimes you struggle sometimes it goes smooth. If you find it painful to watch or you are expecting some Stormy type action don't watch. I really don't know what to say. So far it looks like your bored.

    I have tools, many special tools by Stihl. I have hammers and saws and grinders and welder. Nails screws tape lots and lots of tools. I use them when it's appropriate. That may be what is worrying you. You perceive I should be using something. I have no idea what you are referring too.I lacked no tools while I worked on this saw. I have arthritis and I see evidence of that when I edit the videos but that only slows.me down not stop me

    Edit, did you listen to the video, I explained the saw had problems and it's history and where I was going with it.

    Do you know this guy? He is a total fan. I think he is pulling my leg. He worries about folks that don't have tools. I am crippled, I got tools. Hands are two important tools. Lol

    I would like to work this saw out so we can have a 72cc runner. Early on the 660 was this much trouble.
