Stihl MS390 - HT lead info required.
« on: May 12, 2013, 01:52:55 am »
Hi,
I have just joined this forum - I am looking for some assistance with my MS390.

I managed to pull the cover and connector off the HT lead whilst doing routine servicing, I have replaced it  >:(, but cannot get the m/c to start, I suspect the hole in the side/end of the lead is now too great for a good connection.
The lead is the 5mm type with a weird pin that pushes through into the HT lead and then the rubber cover is slid over!!.

I have purchased a length of new 5mm HT lead from a Stihl agent in France.

Is it possible that you could PM me a diagram from the SM that will show me how to replace the HT lead.  (i.e where to connect the opposite end to plug connection)  I have user manual and IPL.


Kind regards

Getting the boot slid over the conductor can be a challange . The spring connecter just pierces the wire which is about a standard method .It might help to warm the boot a little bit and grease the conducor with silicon grease . WD-40 might work .

Hi Al,

You are right, it is very difficult to get that cap back on, so much so, I am in the middle of replacing the HT lead as I think I made a mess of the old one - trying to get a good connect, however, I did not envisage having to take the whole m/c apart  >:(  - Just taking the carb off at the mo to get at the HT lead source (hopefully)  Still, the m/c is getting a real good clean.
thanks for the comment

regards

Hi Again AL,

For info, I have replaced the HT lead, gave the m/c 100% clean and service, it worked first pull, so am very pleased.

Thanks also to cut4fun for the info on replacing the HT lead.

cheers  ;D
