Hello all,

I bought a cheap china 036 (48mm) cilinder (without decrompression valve), piston and gasget and put it on my Stihl 034 from 2000.
Today I got a chance to test it, and to my suprise I got it running.
After heating it up slowly with a bit more oil added to the fuel I tuned the original carb and it starts and runs fine.

Does anybody knows if the Stihl 036 has a different muffler compared to the 034?
Would I get more performance when changing the muffler?
