  3. I was gonna reply to this topic of making 1 out of 2 chains.. some people are still in the throw it away or sell it on sort of mind where you just end up losing money, to the people in between (eBay & PayPal) Yes you can earn more money. , but I used to do the a Simular thing ( drink to much beer and not go to work the next day). one of the first few things I brought was an NG7 second hand off eBay. It’s defo saved me money on fixing loops. but everyone has a different view. And I respect this 👍
  4. Hey @johnsond,,, We got ourselves a convoy!!! 👍👍🤣🤣🤣
  5. Yes you can swap the cover from the old to the new, I’ve done it for another stihl saw, I think it was a 026/260 iirc. Ie I brought one with out the snorkel (non compensating) and put the snorkel on from the old carb edit I think you will find they used the same carb on some of the old 024's & 026's

    Sweet.. flooding is common problem, And you have to know how warm the saw is to know the best way to start it. ive a 026. when It’s warm and I still have to give it choke, it berps then hot start. my mate flooded it, but I didn’t know it. I went throu my start process. It didn’t burp. Or start on hot start. Or normal . I then did what Dan said .. pull over with throttle wide open, it then bumbled. So I tried again, same then it bumbled and slowly bumbled into life. that’s why I said is it flooded.. but had to ask the fuel and oil as well...

    Silly questions, the fuel you used, did it have 2stroke oil added ? are you sure you didn’t flood it. I 2strokes can be a pain if your not used to starting them, most have little unique characteristics, also you got an mtronic, which I,m not used to, so I can’t really help anymore. but hopefully while your reading the manual, someone else will come along and help 😉 @spudulike
  8. Yes it did, @75mph on some of the way 🤫 and thanks for helping me load it .👍 sean..
  9. Ahh, those woke peeps will say you can’t use that word..😂. and for the woke record, our local nhs say we give babies human milk and chest feed them . so I had chest of chicken tonight 🤣 and the list will get longer and longer. Btw I don’t take offence to someone quoting history. 😉👍 or some just saying. But everyone draws a different line somewhere. That’s why I avoid polaticks and the rona debate. ps we had a good chat in al's yard 👍😉 after I pickup up that 881
