026 Repair issues
« on: November 03, 2013, 12:09:09 pm »
Hey everyone, new to the forum and first post.

I work in the OPE industry and rebuild blown up Stihl saws as a hobby on the side for extra cash.  I have a decent amount of experience and I have done most repairs from the 170s up to concrete saws.

Recently I acquired an 026.  I replaced the cylinder, used a spark tester to make sure the plug was firing but couldn't get the saw to turn over.  I use no-ethanol gas.  Even if the carb is bad I can usually get the saw to fire even if for a couple seconds.  It doesn't appear that any fuel is getting into the cylinder at all.  The impulse hose is ran correctly but the old gas has ruined the tank line and it stretches out like a rubber band.  Thankfully, Stihl has slashed many of their carb prices so I decided to replace the fuel lines and carb completely.  I have a feeling that the old gas completely put the carb out of commission.

I'm happy to have found this forum and look forward to browsing all the topics.  Thanks.

Your thread cornfuses me.
What exactly have you replaced and what exactly is happening / not happening with the saw?

Have you checked to make sure the flywheel key isn't sheared?

I've worked on several 026's. The AV mounts wear out and puts extra strain on the intake boot. Most of the ones I've seen have had torn intake boots.

Check your wires around the top av mount on the tank. Have seen some wires get nicked there from the metal piece around the screw. I would also look at you intake boot like Adirondack said have seen many of boot **** and torn from sloppy mounts.

Also did you figure out why the saw cooked the top end to begin with.
