  1. The other last resort is to pop the brass insert on the rear flat face of the carb and turn to screw 1/8 to 1/4 out
  2. Thing I done last week. 4 days. Had fun!
  3. Run his bar for a bit longer (like a full tank) on some thick wood with your saw. Just to double check
  4. They fit a 372 fuel hole as well
  5. Just take the spikes off and test it. Im pretty sure itll have nothing to do with them, but easy enough to test. A sharp chain and decent undamaged bar should cut without the use of the spikes. Either the bar grooves are worn unevenly forcing the chain to side, or they are burred, or bar is bent. or the chain is incorrect/not sharp/not sharpened evenly/rakers need filing.
  6. Dont use a a zigzag for srt, but it could be the shackle moving causing more sit back? My tether sits on the side of my hitchclimber on the same krab that fixes it to my bridge so there is no movement.
  7. I've never shaved a flywheel - guess that's up to you. but certainly worth getting the cat out. From memory once that's happened the outlet is plenty big enough
  8. I'd love that. Do shout if your serious - happy to try and make most budgets work!
  9. Thanks for the thorough reply! Did you consider drilling the cast type clip on muffler to fit bolts through? The cost of the non OEM cylinder and exhaust puts it only about 40/50 quid cheaper than getting a stihl cylinder- so but less tempting. Have the non OEM cylinders been ok?
  10. Yeah they tore a page or two out that sketch book just after that pic. Should learn to draw better I guess
  11. Havent been in the carving for a while, just done this. First carving I have done where I havent been on the sanding for hours which was nice. Had quite a bit help from the foals.
  12. Facing the same problem. I know this was a while back but how did you get on Bob?
  13. Pfanner pilatus are working well for me. Well comfy from the start. Bit hot. Seem to be lasting well
  14. I've found the makitas good, but heavier than the stihl and husky alternatives. Just if you want something lighter that ms241 I dont think the ea4300 will sort you out. Good saw tho
  15. I sit my behind the shank. Not as comfy as with no spikes but works fine
  16. Surely you dont mean replace? Run alongside? Well impressed that schiesling you have
  17. I was given a florabest one. Only used it on 25" plus metalled/stoned chains. Died before I got to replace the disc and wildly inaccurate. Probably ok for very occasional home owner use, if you dont care about getting the chain absolutely stinging sharp. Got one of these 230W Electric Chain Chainsaw Sharpener Grinder 3000rpm Bench Mounted Saw Blade WWW.EBAY.CO.UK This electric chainsaw sharpener grinder is made of sturdy and firm aluminum material, making it anti-rust and scratch-proof. The aluminum construction improves strength and performance. Firm & Sturdy Aluminum Chainsaw Chain Grinder. Knock off of the oregon pro one. Works well so far has it a year or so
  18. Nah dave, done almost nothing with it. Still on moving out the old yard and working too much. Will get a good go on it soon as I have my act together, just done some mushy bits of burr elm. Auto box much the same but its booked in for a load of jobs and that's on the list, as well as new doors, exhaust, and misc oil leaks. Look forward to seeing you doing some metre wide cuts!
  19. Looks the business dave. Look forward to some pics of it in action
  20. 084 not revving up, limiter is coming in at 10.5k. Unacceptable. Is it new coil o'clock or worth trying something else? Heard 660 coils can be modded and fitted. 084 coils are a pain to get though there are a few ont'ebay
