Yeow, Kevin what a PITA to work on, almost as bad as a 192T.

3 bolts hold motor in at AV locations.    Carb and bolts removal too. Then have to remove flywheel and coil to slide through and out.   Not bad been in way worse.  But still all of this for a boot.   :o :'(

Got the boot etc in today.   8)

What a freaking PITA to get back in the carb area once boot is installed on cylinder  :o.  Needed some elf fingers handy.   :P

Adjusted the fulcrum back to where it belongs and tested  today with a loop of new stihl 45dl  chain.   ;)

Also got to test the checkspark tool out.  Couldnt get 338 to fire at first.  Clipped check spark on showed  red.  Went old way with wire with light between plug and wire, notta.  Hmmmmmmmmm

Got to looking and the ground wire turned while tightening coil bolt and was up against the other wire on coil. Reset wires and coil gap and checked again. Green. Sweeeet.

So, your first experience with check spark was good?

Yep I even used my old way to make sure I didnt have spark.   Checkspark was much easier, I just didnt trust it yet being it was 1st time using.

Talk about timing. Owner was calling as I was replying to your post earlier. Saw already picked up.

I only charged the owner $20 labor to remove and install the boot, set carb and test tune. Mainly because I was gaining experience of doing this work on the 338xpt.

I do the same thing when I am working on a saw that I don't have experience on. The ones you have never worked on are the most fun anyway!

If the 338 is much liked the 335 it is indeed a giant pain the buttocks to wrench on .You nearly have to field strip the little rascal to do anything to it .

Fact I've got three of the later in the shed .Two with bad oilers and one that cooked itself .Kind of low on the priority list at the moment .
