We had a bunch of storm damage and today really was the first chance I had to run this little thing .Whoever ground that chain should find another line of work .The dummys ground it like it was 3/8" low .After I hit it with a 3/16 " file that little rascal really impressed me .That thing has a lot more  azz than I thought it would have . I think I got a keeper . ;D

Hope you don't mind me jumping in on your thread. I have an 024 and am trying to remove the plastic cover over the cylinder/spark plug. There is a single through-threaded screw with slots for a screwdriver  at the top with a rubber grommet. I can't get the screw loose. I've had the saw for 15 years, 2 bars and 4 chains and never removed the shroud before. It it just a matter of manning up and getting tough with it or is there some technique you can share?

And is there a manual on line?

Spray some PB blaster on the thread area from the top.  http://www.toolsource.com/blaster-penetrating-catalyst-pi-91999.html

Let set for awhile and get a big screwdriver that takes up most of the slot.

What manuals you looking for IPL, Owners, Service?

Yeah it just unscrews ---or should .

I'll give anybody a word of advice though which I just learned .These little rascals have such a tiny air filter you have to pay attention to them .It certainly isn't like the 038 Mag you can run all day without  shaking the dust out .

Ran just dandy then took a fit on me .What is this ,fiddled with the carb,no go .Finally shook the dust out then back in business .A learning curve I guess .

I suppose anything is possible. However the 028 is "old school " design. It's the little brother to the 048-042- 038 series . So I doubt the cylinder would be a direct bolt on thing .

You know it probably is about the same as a few that bolted 038 Mag cylinders on an 038 Av .You have to do some machine work for it to work .You'd just as well start off with the Mag to begin with rather than hill billy engineer one .

On the other hand if you have a pile of parts sitting around it might not be a bad project just to see if it would work .

As far as the 028 somebody had a screamer over in Pa. a few years back so they will run with some attention .On that I have one in the shed I'll do exactly that once I feel the ambition which has been rather lax here of late .

maybe the 034 cyl on the 026 would be a better build  :-\

The 034 cylinder is 2 MM over bore of the 026 and it's highly unlikely to be a direct bolt on deal .Even if with some machining work the problem would be if a person were trying to keep the displacement within 3 cu inchs it would run you over slightly .

If I read it correctly the 026 uses a 2 mm shorter stroke than the 034 so there you'd run into problems with the rod length as well  regarding piston /port timing issues .Depending also on the amount of skirt below the pin you might catch it with the crankshaft throws . Then too once if you do get it to work would the shrouding fit ? A lot to think about here .

I had some time today in between moving logs and waiting for the rain to pass so I played with this thing .

Cut what I could from the baffle cage and removed the front baffle from the muffler front and retuned .The front opening was already large enough with the front baffle removed .No need for a second .

My my it certainly awakened a tiny little sleeping giant I must say .I was a tad sceptical  about this thing which for all intents is the smallest displacement next to the 020/200T of the so called professional Stihl saws I do believe .My sceptisism was unfounded because this little mouse has the heart of a lion now .

Took that little rascal non stop though 20 inch oak for 15 minute and it never hiccuped  ,farted or protested .Got me a keeper I do believe . ;D
