My first new saw was a 266xp in ‘85. I worked on a firewood crew…6days/6hrs a day. Rotated it with an 031 Stihl until early 90s… got the 066.Unfortunately I'm not that well equipped. All I've got are my eyeballs and a headlamp.
The saw has been dead reliable for all these years, and in spite of whatever these things are it still runs just like it always has. I think I will just keep running it and see what happens. I'd imagine if those bits came from the motor and didn't cause an issue then, then running it shouldn't make it worse. If it was going to blow up then it should've done it already, surely.
the husky cut hundreds of cord wood for many yrs. I re-ringed it and sold it to a friend who put another 10yrs of hard use on it. I finally gave up around 2015. Not bad . Imo the that model was/is the best all around firewood saw out there.
one of these days I’ll find another for a project.
