    390xp hd air filter and cover?

    Ransom spares, l&s engineering. You may not notice much difference, but you might. The saw will look better of course.

    Something missing !!

    I;m not familiar with the machine but there is an inner bearing race still on the shaft and part of the cast housing in the square. so it seems you are missing the balls the outer race and some housing. Take the bits off go to a bearing suppliers and from what you have they should be able to identify the size you need

    Carburetor limiting screws

    I don't think there are any air leaks the saw ran well before. I decided to run it on aspen like all my others so put all new rubber on it, manifold, impulse line, fuel line and a carb kit. The limiters look as if they are an after thought to an old style carb to meet emission regs. I' ll take them off and retune again.

    Carburetor limiting screws

    I'm having trouble setting up the carb on a 372xp pre x torque and am blaming the adjustment limiters. They are a bit mashed up (second hand saw) and locating a screwdriver in the running saw is a pain. If i remove them what is left, a screwdriver slot? At the moment i have 2800 rpm at idle and 12250 rpm flat out. Thanks Nick

    Steel wedges?

    My hi lift is aluminium not steel.

    What is this

    Scale insects, sap sucking bugs, quite hard to treat as they have the limpet like shell. When the white fluff is showing they are easier to control. Maybe not worth trying to do anything.

    Stihl Combi Cans!!

    Yes the holders are interchangeable, I went the other direction and have two tool holders.

    polyethylene glycol peg

    I read a paper on this, found by a general search. The gist being the water in the wood is replaced by PEG ,done by submerging the wood in PEG and warming gently for a long (long) time. The PEG doesn't evaporate like water so the wood is less likely to crack.

    Chainsaws and warm/hot sheds??

    Saws have tank vents I wouldn't worry
