Hopefully they would reimburse him or send him a UPS label.
good to hear JD is willing to work with you James. My 462 has about 10 tanks (so about 10 hrs.?) thru it and it has been running fine. i only took it easy the first tank. After that no holds barred. good luck with the parent health issues and the saw.
At this point i'm ready to buy him a new used saw with the help of some others here! Anyone got a beat up good runner 60-70 cc?
He said he has an 034
I ordered an MS 362 C-M yesterday. Partly because of this thread! I will perform a compression test as soon as I get it! But it sounds like I might need another compression gauge if it has a smaller spark plug.
40 hours to break in? I'm in the woods only 15 days or so per year and I have several saws. It'll take me years just to break it in...
It will be interesting to compare the new 362 to my older 361. The 361 does not have many hours on it so it is still in great shape. Should be good for a decent comparison.
Please do not do any modifications before you test it out!
What about this spark plug "adapter"
Nope, I will try it bone stock. It may get a muffler mod later on.
Snap On has the adapter that is a hose with fittings it works for my stuff great. Order the correct thread length measuer a small plug thread depth and compare to the specs on what you buy.. Or I could measure my adapter if you need let me know!
IDK fo sho but I heard the 362 has better low end torque and the 361 revs better? Not positive of this but wait and see.
Thanks, we have lots of brands here in Sweden but not Snap On unfortunately. But I'll find something that'll work.
Make sure thew Scrader valve is in the very end.
No... I believe Cascade ran the 4 tests... I know Austin there seems pretty straight honest kid...really what can he say thou. I watched Corvallis do their test and they have the same setup as me. So...your probably correct, I need to check my equipment against a good running machine as suggested. I looked the other day for a 10mm Schrader tester but doesn't look like I can confirm what's out there is correct and has the Schrader in the adapter. I'll probably have to make my own which won't be to bad on collet lathe as long as I can get a tap to match the Schrader threads. I might have to pull valve stem off inter-tube, press fit with some JB weld.
Stihl would pick up the shipping I would have to package it.
Some good advice here about adapters already available.
I forgot what forum I was on but a couple of weeks ago I had read where a guy had three or four MS462's and the first one he said took 25 tanks for the saw to fully break in which sounded a long time for any motor. The others broke in much quicker, in the end they all ended up running the same. So maybe your saw does need a little more time on it?? I have a new 462 and have only run a couple of tanks thru it, so to early to tell if it gets any better, one thing for sure is these newer saws operate much better at a higher rpm than the old saws..
Ok. So scratch all this. I placed the order yesterday at a very, very good price point. Just now I received word that their stock was sold out and that I would get a refund. Bummer.
good deal then make sure you pack it good so they dont break it1
