It takes the same seals as the 181 and 281 also .Relatively inexpensive nothing like those high priced Stihl OEM seals .On the flywheel side you'll need to "shoe spoon" the seal in because it sets in a retainer and the crank has a sharp shoulder with very little chamfer .I have a picture of it someplace if it will help .

Well I fired up the 2100 today I could not resist.   Wow talking about pulling that rope for everything your worth.   The saw sounded great and did not have to touch the carb and it idled down nice and steady.

  I have the seals and gasket set on order Aaron so I still plan on putting in the seals.  Thanks.

If you can find a picture that would be helpful.

I was looking at the serial number and found the date to be 1984 that it was made.

A 1984 tag would be interesting to see a picture of!

I don't know if this will help or not ,it's the clutch side .Note the step in the crank shaft .I use a thin plastic tube well greased up between the seal and the shaft to assure it gets over the step in the crank .On a deal like this it's very easy to roll the seal .I had pictures of the proceedure on a 281 but I can't find them .

OK.



Thanks - I wanted to see if it said 1984 or if the number just started with a four!  I'm trying to find out exactly when they started putting the numbers that is decodable to the week on the saws.  ;)

For the step in the crank I just use a piece of aluminum from a soda can.  Is that what you mean by shoe spoon.

Is that the seal located in the oil pump?

Bring it up against compression and give it a good pull. That sumbee will make your fingers hurt if it kicks back. I would grab one in a heart beat if it was that nice.

This is the nicest 2100 to ever come in my shop. It has had very little use,with an almost new 36" bar.
I bought it from the guy with the intension of putting it on a mill but it is too nice to beat up. I did have to tig the starter cover. I think we will play with it at the gtg this weekend then find it a new home

That one is close to mint  ;D - what is the serial number?
