Stihl 044 Top end question

Recommended Posts

Mine is a 12mm little end bearing with no decomp, don't know the year of manufacture. I've seen quite a few and a lot in pictures with decomp valves but it's no problem starting it and it's a good saw.

Are you selling your 044?

If they are fetching good money it can go.

It is possible the key on the flywheel has sheared but more likely that opening up the gap from coil to flywheel may sort it out. Basically your ignition timing has changed slightly and the saw is trying to fire a little earlier causing the kickback. The flywheel key, coil gap, coil malfunction and sometimes a plug gap being lower than spec will effect ignition timing.

I took the saw in today and the service chap is taking the nut off the flywheel, he’s going to check what’s needed and then I’ll buy the parts and repair it myself. He said it maybe the coil and not the key.
