Makita HTB7600 not starting

Recommended Posts

Yup, dealers won't use this method but have had saws fixed like this last years of professional abuse so there you go.

Try to avoid rubbing up and down the bore in one small area as you can produce a slight cavity in the bore that will lose you compression if above the exhaust port. Going around the bore is better as it will allow the piston to bed in on the slightly rough bore surface.

Thanks again gents, just need to try and source a piston now, they appear to be a bit scarce.

Hey Roys, ring L&S Engineers, i know they say out of stock on the internet site/pages, but quite often i have still put things to basket and proceeded to checkout/payment or simply just rung them and they do actually have stock, not always but majority of time. Worth a call

L&S list some parts as out of stock but they will order it in from their supplier when you order it so it may take 1-3 days longer but they do chase and follow it up - been a good supplier to my business!
