    Picked up this 066 flat top the other day

    Looks to be the wrong switch lever/shaft on it. It wouldn't hold the choke closed on the carb on its own, had to be held down to keep it closed. Looks like someone filed it down so it fit in the slot.

    What would be the correct one for this saw? Part number? Or does anyone have one kicking around?
    Also need a flat top air filter cover.

    The carb box PN is 1122 121 0102.

    Just had a quick look at my 066 red eye.
    It has the same red lever as yours.
    Cheers,Chris.

    Do you have a part number or a picture showing under the air box?

    I have 3 or 4 066s sitting around. Take a pic of what you need. I'll see if I have it.

    Part of the kill switch locks red plastic shaft in place to hold choke shut .[​IMG]

    Which filter base does your tank use- the black plastic one or the orange metal one? If your tank uses the black plastic one, then you need the newer style switch shaft.

    Ok, you need the newer style switch shaft, like the one in the e-bay auction I posted the link to.
