I'd find you....... you cannot hide.
Toms half brother from another mother?
I mean y’all are on a tiny island...can’t be that many branches in the family tree...
Tiny Island???? They don't all live on Tasmania ya know!
Copy an outline of Aussie and paste it on a map of the States- covers a fair chunk of it eh?
The mapmakers just make it look bigger,
to make you guys feel better......
Doesn't make me feel any better- it just means our West Island is populated by a heap of bloody Aussies!
They use a fish eye lens. Don’t believe what the government puts out
Speaking of which....
Have you shut off travel from China yet?
The earth is flat and the moon landing was faked!
Are we allowed to? They own half the country..... can you keep an equal shareholder out?
Anyway, I would love to post some photo's of my Stihl 08S.
I would love to know the age of this saw ? It runs perfectly.
Nice old stihl, someone will be able to help with the info you are after. May i suggest finding a 026, 036, 044, 046, 064, 066 to feed your addiction.
Being a 7 digit serial number, makes it pretty old.
The style of starter would give some clues, and maybe the ignition.
There is a bulletin with a serial number break, that likely went with a change from the Fairbanks Morse style starter, dated 1981, and a date on the ipl of 1988 on the plastic pawl style starter. The serial number break on the 1981 version is #8 959 330.
Points ignition changed @ 1985 and serial break of 13 927 613
Of course, this may only apply to US models, I am not sure how that worked. As the Brazil only models are different, so your area might have some differences as well.
Looks like they went to 8 digit in 1981,
according to this bulletin.
So to get a more accurate year of manufacture I would need to remove the side cover and check the points ?
Is there any other way I can get a better idea of the year it was manufactured ?
I have a 045AV that I will start playing around with shortly.
