    Mean while back at the Ranch. David works on his new found Stihl 08 S $12 scrap yard special with great piston-cylinder and pulls good compression. I better not check the compression because that might lead to ...................................................Well you know!!!!!!! :drinkingcoffee: I really hope Stihl makes it right!!

    You said the shop "tuned" it and you added other parts? If it was modified out of specs in the beginning then you voided any warranty. Wow. I read all the time how guys want to modify their new saws and then when it fails blame the manufacturer.

    Stihl is aware of the mods and seemingly unconcerned about them.

    In any case the mods don’t affect the issue the OP is experiencing.

    Skipping all the posts and asking a member to fill you in because you don’t want to read them is not unlike modding a saw and expecting a warranty to be honored.

    Unless of course Lone wolf is a personal friend or family. I mean no disrespect if this is the case.
