I just bought a couple older Stihl‘s a 044 and a 038AV for $80. Can anyone tell me what year they are and if the 044 is the 10mm or 12mm wrist pin ? The 044 start with 131 in the pictures. Thanks for any help
Mine doesn’t say anything on the right side of the carb other than H and L. Mine has the metal badge riveted on top. I don’t have any red switch levers but it does have the switch for heated handle bar which was disconnected.
Thanks HarleyT I’ll have to read that info. I did a compression test on the 044 and it’s at 145. The handle bar, throttle handle and carb are all heated so that should help narrow down the year. I didn’t pull the cylinder off yet but it looks in great shape through the carb and exhaust ports. I don’t know that much about gasket delete with Stihl‘s or even if you can do it to the 044. Thanks for all the help.
