  1. Sun's shining here and it's snowing a blizzard at the same time right now.

    Chain oil

    I don't bath in it and it doesn't vaporise. I use it because I don't use my saw all the time and have seen the results of leaving veg oil standing. Half a drum in a garage soon turned into a lump of jelly that wouldn't pour out. That was Stihl bio oil.

    Chain oil

    Peanut oil's good for stir fries as well🤭
  4. The bar oiling system is pumped not driven by crank case pressure. When you say the oil isn't really flowing how much oil is coming out of the bar feed hole ? It does only creep out of there not come out in a jet. Try some thinner oil.
  5. Be sure to put some paper and kindling under them for the authentic look 👍
  6. There's a stop pin that you punch in to let the adjuster turn a bit further on some big saws
  7. Husqvarna T540i XP is our most powerful battery-powered top-handle chainsaw, ... X-Precision Laminated bar .325” mini PIXEL 1.1mm Small bar mount. If it fits the criteria any manufacturer's bar should work, is it the correct pitch ? Contact chainsawbars and ask what you should have.
  8. I don't like them. 😉 I've tried a few and they come loose.
  9. Do all the battery Makita rear handle saws have the idiot's chain tensioner ? If they do I don't want one.
  10. I use them for firewood cutting on my Husqvarna 135. They are cheap enough so I have half a dozen, plenty of standbys for when you hit a nail or a stone and they last well. I use them till I have 3 or 4 to sharpen then do them with the Lidl sharpener.
  11. Did you keep the rings on the locating pin on the piston, did the cylinder go back easily ?
  12. Some of them have new plugs in already, three should tide me over
  13. Oil pump worm drive pinion ?
  14. I bought 3 BPMR7A plugs the other day just for such occasions, under £5 for all three well worth keeping a few spares in.

    Go lo Pro?

    That he doesn't want you as a customer ? That would be my take if he'd done it to me.
