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

On your 044, what does it say on the right side for carb adjustment? Are they all 3/4 and 1/4, or are the earlier ones different?

1128 is the whole 044-MS461 series of sawsOnly other number I can find is 1128 is stamped on the top of the cylinder. I think I read in another post the 1128 is just to verify it’s a 044 or 046 model ?

Thought that I would just start a clean thread, so this stuff can be easily found... Here is a bar/chain manual.....

www.arboristsite.com

044 waa made from 1988 to 2001

In 1980/1981 Stihl changed from 7 to 9 digits SN...so that 038AV should be 1980/1981
