011 AV
« on: December 03, 2012, 04:43:45 pm »
Got an old 011 AV that my Dad had but couldn't keep running.  After some fiddling with mixtures I can keep it running do about 20 minutes of cutting.  Then when I squeeze the throttle it tries to die.  Been reading some other stuff that suggests leaving gas in it all winter is not a good idea, although I keep mine treated with Stabil.  Anyway, others have suggested that the gas line might be **** and/or the carb might need to be rebuilt or replaced.  It's a handy little saw to have around.  Any ideas?

Just do it all in one clip.Clean and rebuild the carb (kits are cheap on ebay),fuel line and fuel filter. The impulse travels through the intake block, you'll see a very small hole. Make sure you line the gasket up correct.
Any troubles just post back here for help.
Their good little saws.I have 2 I won't part with.  Scoot

Pulled the carb this afternoon and both fuel(?) lines broke off.  One of the lines has some sort of brass plug in it.  What's that all about?  I'll go to my local chainsaw shop in town and get some new fuel line.  Gotta make sure I get that metal plug back in correctly (I presume it's supposed to be there).  Are there some sort of written directions for this stuff that I can download and print?  Thanks for the suggestions.

You are probabley better off to use the OEM style line in the tank  .I presume the line with the plug is the tank vent line .That brass contraption acts kind of like a check valves so all the gas doesn't gush out all over the place .

That model lists two carbs .WT 29 Walbro or C1 S S1 Zama .Tutorials on rebuilding can be found on each respective web site of the manufacture .

I have one 011 in the shed I've never used .Got it running ,made a few cuts and there it sits .

There probabley isn't anything wrong with it other than the fact I've got better saws for the intended type of work these things were made for .

Only one I have ever had stihl 011AV and it was found in the landfill in case by a friend that worked there. Went through it and sent it to live in TX.

There must be two versions of those things .I repaired one a few years ago that was orange and had a cable throttle linkage .I could not believe one of the local Stihl dealers had one in stock . I think it's an 011 I have in the shed but it's white .

Yep it's an 011 just like I thought .Evidently the white one is designated 011 AVEQ .It has a fuctioning chain brake and if I'm not mistaken that orange one I wrenched on did not , just  a guard .

Ya know that thing weighs just about as much as the 024 in the picture ,has about the same displacement but  isn't half the saw the 024 is .

I have no idea what the intended market was for these things

I seen alot of white 011 but only few of orange ones. I got 2 white ones but one is in pieces. One has old style choke lever that goes up and down and the other has the newer style choke lever thats goes left to right.
