My 461 blew up, bearings gone, cylinder and piston gone. From running it half throttle too much. Now looking as a massive bill from the Stihl shop with OEM parts. I would try and rebuild it myself, but having trouble locating a meteor rebuild kit in the EU or UK. Every positive hit sends me to ebay USA, where they are plentiful and cheap. They will ship to Ireland, but I'm just a bit wary of buying from ebay and the US - although I hear good reports. I'd rather buy from an EU seller, but there seems to be no rebuild kits my meteor for my saw around, even though they're made in Italy. Can anyone tell me why this is? I'm just curious, is it some kind of Stihl patent thing in the EU or what? Meteor kits for older Stihl saws are available in the UK.
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.
