The Quadra 50 and bigger had a double sided counter weight on the crank.

Finally got the carb rebuild kit for the Walbro WT29, fuel line and tank vent line.  I was gonna do it this past weekend, but Dad's neighbor brought down a 34" Black Oak and asked if I wanted the wood.  Dumb question, but I graciously accepted.  So, now the rebuild is put off another week.  Question - I tried pulling the fuel tank filter and it is either stuck or attached.  Do I have to separate the two halves to replace the fuel and vent lines?  How big of a pain is removing the jug, piston, etc?  Never been this deep in a repair before.  Should be fun!

Wow! I'm way behind on this rebuild!  :o  Also got tied up rebuilding my Husky 55 (am I allowed to mention Husky's in a Stihl forum?)  Anyway, I did separate the case so now I need to get a gasket kit and I also discovered the piston has a hairline crack so gotta get one of those as well.  Parts everywhere!  I'll get busy on this, but just wanted to post to get this thread back to the top so I don't have to go hunting when I have questions!   ;D

I got a couple of these too with problems. Let us know what happens. 

You do not have to separate the case for a fuel line. A pair of tweezers or needle nose will pull the hose out enough that you can cut off the filter and sacrifice a few millimeters .. and then just pull out the rest through the carb side. The hose is just generic 1/4" or something like that and it's a bad design as you probably realized by now. you'd think there would be a grommet or something but the hose just pushes through a hole with no protection.

The hose should fit the hole snug though

Too late, the case was split.  No biggie.  I did get new fuel line and as long as everything is apart I'm gonna replace the vent hose as well.  Already have the vent plug back in the hose.  Pushed it in, didn't screw it in so I should be good there.  A piston for this little bugger isn't cheap ($75), but you have to be careful as it looks like some of the 011 models used single ring pistons.  Mine is of the double ring variety which, it seems to me, makes the piston more stable in the cylinder and also gives better compression. 

Yeah, it looks like the hoses should have been passed through a grommet rather than a metal case.  I think part of my initial problem with the saw was a **** fuel line.  When I pulled the carb the fuel line broke right at the spot where it went through the case.  Probably pretty common.  The real reason I split the case was because the fuel filter wouldn't budge.  I was worried it was attached and didn't want to bugger something up so I decided to split the case and see what was going on.  As I was pulling the case apart the fuel filter fell out.  Don't know what was jamming it up, but something was.

If I can get a second saw back up and running I'm likely to break my arm patting myself on the back!   ::)

I had the 009 out today. Cut fine on a few branches and then it didn't want to start the second time, could be because it was sitting in -5C for 2 hours. I got it started for a bit but it sounded like crap.  seems to work better in warmer temperatures.

More than half-way there!  Had a rough time getting the cylinder on and keep in the bearings on the crank.  Had 'em greased to be sure, but couldn't figure out how to get the piston in the cylinder without losing one or two bearings.  Finally figured it out on the fourth try:  put the piston in the cylinder just past the second ring, put the gaskets in place, slide connecting rod over bearings and push case halves together, then bolt down cylinder.  Presto!  The hard part is finished.  I'll get the rest of it finished tomorrow and hopefully it'll start!   ;)

sounds like four hands are needed?

I'd have to use some of the old style waxy stringy heavy wheel bearing grease?

I'm just waiting on a few parts myself.  It turns out the fuel hose I was using is .005 mm too thin. I filled it up the other day and put on its side and today it was half empty.
