What's on your bench today?

Been lurking for a while, finally signed up today. Just finished reading this thread, all very interesting....learnt a lot from it.
 
I've just put a new p+c on my ms261, she runs well. I'm now thinking before I use it too much that i should find the original cause of the damage.
 
Any advice on where to start would be greatly appreciated.
 
Cheers

Major air leak usually detectable to the discerning user. What spud says, and listen out for erratic idle or it real screaming

Old fuel oil mix, straight petrol, incorrect adjusted carb, air leak, carb issue etc... That's about it. Just tach it so it is 500 -1000rpm below maximum and all should be fine.

Cheers Spud!

 

Forgot to mention.....its mtronic ?

 

It's a second hand saw, so I'm hoping it's just had a bad mix in it at some point. Swapping it over to aspen now, so hopefully she'll be okay now?

Ok thanks ?

 

I did an mtronic reset, and seems to be idling and revving out well now.

 

Hopefully it stays that way.

Fit the new type fuel filter, has a higher micron rating and obviously stops more crud getting to the carb/solenoid. Think it has the orange body. From what I’ve read.

Ok, thanks for that. 

 

Do you know the part number, only one I can see at the minute is the standard black and white one.
