Re: Saw project
« on: October 05, 2012, 10:46:34 am »
Hi,

I was wondering if anyone has a suggestion for a chainsaw rebuild project?  I would rather rebuild a saw with my son who turns 14 on Friday than just buying a new saw.  I think he would enjoy learning how a gas engine works.  I would prefer a saw that parts are easy to come by and there is good online community support.  It might be fun to trick it out a bit.

Any advise would be helpful.

A well designed saw easy to work on and mod would be a Stihl 034,036,038,044,064. I did alot of demos for dealer techs and endusers back in the day when these saws were new on the market. I could disassemble the complete unit [not including flywheel and crankshaft] and reassemble it in a half hour or less, explaining all the features in the process. Only needed a torx wrench , scrench and carb screwdriver to do it.

For a few trick's or mods, their cylinders are easy to mill for more compression with their flat bases. .020" or 1/2mm would be safe.
