    Merry Xmas

    Everyone have the best Christmas you can in these times. All the best[emoji106][emoji106]
  3. Total length of bolt for CSK. Length of thread for headed bolts.
  4. Have a 044 and Makita ep5000 50cc oh and a ms181 always reach for the Makita as better antivibe and enough power. Had it burried full bar 18” in hawthorn and pulled fine as a fire wood saw would not look past it.
  5. Short update 044 was still a pain to start. Decided to run Makita on motomix as sometimes left for a few weeks. Filled 044 with it and starts fine now. Suspect old or poor petrol flooding and causing hydraulic on cold start . Loose coil affecting hot starts. Fresh juice would probably be the answer. Running all saws on motomix now as local supplier.
  6. Dewalt quote as chain speed is below 8m/s no tickets are needed to buy it as it’s a top handle arborists saw. Can’t see an arborists using it though too slow with plastic dogs. Ok for general use though.
  7. Finally got round to having a closer look. Plug gap ok at 0.020” coil gap slightly close at 0.008”. Started to set up and found coil moving. Screws were loctited in so wouldn’t move but not right down . Cleaned down and set up now no hurty fingers it snapped string. But Santa came early new Makita ea5000p. Thanks for the advice guys much appreciated.
  8. This one will start ok when cold and seams to get worse when warm. Pulling with passion has lead to a snapped new starter cord. I’m am now thinking the coil may be on the way out and the timing drifting. Will have to investigate further on Thursday
  9. Yes tried pulling just over TDC nice hard yank and handle straight out of hand swear at it next try easier than my 181. Will pull flywheel tomorrow after making a puller and set coil gap. Main prob is snapped cords so job held up
  10. I have a 044. Beast of a saw cutting really well. On starting occationally it appears to lock and pull the starting handle out of my fingers. This will happen a few times then the compression seams to drop and it pulls over and starts ok. Mixture looks ok, filters clean flywheel key ok. A bit lost on this one. And sore fingers. No decompression fitted 1996 saw. Any advice gratefully received.
  11. Any wood is good wood if it's free. Love hawthorn and Ash but poplar, lime, sycamore, beach, pine, anything really as long as seasoned Is great, free heat[emoji16]
  12. I had problems with a bar and chain set Fron Northern Arb. Rototec Ordered the matching set but wrong chain supplied a phone call sorted it out eventually!
  13. Looks like new belts are required. Those are shot. Suspect the heat is from the belts slipping. I would change belts and tension so belts can be rotated to 90 deg. Then try it.
