Sorry my 02 is you are wasting your time. My 30 plus year 041 probably has 85 LBS and runs great. About 10 years ago I thought this thing pulls pretty easy so should put a new set of rings in it. I am not sure if it has one or two. So I ordered some parts then misplaced them. Anyway replaced the saw with three Husky 460 so have not had much need to mess with it. It had not been touched in five years. One day last summer thought maybe should take the 041 just in case wonder if it Stihl runs. Filled up the tank tugged about ten times and started right up. Just to make sure cut a few limbs laying around. Made three cuts in a 10'' limb and it went through about the same as the 460's. The standard fix is the carburetor. If you turn your L or H out the motor should chug chug and quit. I have gone through Fleabay and looked at the pictures until I found a kit that looks right. Most of the time they work fine. Often $5 with shipping. Since I have many saws I figure it is not a waste. My 056 Stihl has the original carburetor too. Unless they are for sure torn I keep using them. However you need to double check your passage ways to make certain they flow. Put it back together and adjust as needed. If you can turn the screws out three times and it still seems OK then there is your problem. Make some good chips for us. ThanksI pressure tested the carb and fuel system, holds a steady 9.
Also was able to do a compression test as well, did 3 tests. -135-147-145 Thought not obtaining to bunnies?
Of course I need a women. For forty years I have said maybe I should find a women, but now I can not remember why I was looking. I think I would have if they were not so expensive. How else could I afford to drive more than 250,000 miles racing dirt bikes. ThanksYou need a woman, Ted.
First was compressed air, then the old gas/oil mix I pulled from the tank before starting to clean up the body. After That I stuck my borescope camera in there and it looked clean enough to meWell that's unfortunate. If some sawdust got in the throat there I'd rinse it out with some gas.
