Hello chaps, Newbie to the forum here. First saw was a 028 Wood Boss bought at auction twenty something years ago. Now i have more saws than i know what do with - all second-hand and broken when purchased. Fixing them usually involves improving on the std spec by increased compression, exhaust mods etc. Anyway, latest broken saw is an MS211 in cosmetically nice condition, low hours, 140 psi cylinder pressure but.....exhaust off and piston is part seized. Probably old fuel. To the point - I was going to fit a Meteor piston to the saw but can't find one. So does anyone have any experience with the MS211 pistons that are available eg from dandrikop or tesgol. Or any others that have proved reliable? Thanks for your help.
misterh posted a topic in ChainsawsHi All This is coming from a very happy amateur, I've had my MS211 (with a 16" bar) for 4 years now and am very pleased with the machine, albeit a bit under-powered I find when cutting some heavier stuff. I wonder if someone can assist me with which parts/what needs to be done to give the machine a complete overhaul. I've listed a few things myself below (including some repairs), any assistance would be great: - Will change the oil hose (small black hose underneath as oil is seeping out from there when sitting on the shelf, seems to be a common fault with this model) - Is there an oil filter to be replaced here or just cleaned? - New spark plug - Fuel filter? Again, just a clean or replace? - Sprocket? Gone through a total of 3 chains since new (2 wore down and one I broke). There are some grooves on the sprocket. - Clean the airfilter. Anything else? Many thanks!
