So to add to my last post here are the 2 pics of my 272XP and 044AV and the "well equipped" Canadian beaver. :D

Do you guys think we need more pics allowed per post for those using the attachment space here?  If so how many? From 4 to 6 8 or what?  I'm open for suggestions. It's only $30 or so for more space.

I'm happy with 4, I just forgot about the 4 limit while I typed my post.

Just a click of a number change if need be.   ;)

HolmenTree, I have to confess ive never taken much notice before about which way the serial numbers where stamped on the stihls. I like the old stihls and have just rebuilt an 051 using pretty much all new original stihl internal components. (believe me its cost much more than its worth...) Its around 1974 having the roller bearnig crank etc, and the serial number is stamped the same way as yours. I then checked a slightly later 075 and also stamped the same way!
Therefore im starting to wander if stihl reversed the way they stamped there serial numbers around 1990, I don't know when my 10mm 044 was made as theres no real way of dating it and I didn't obtain it new.

wisecobandit, seeing my 1992 066 had the reversed to date serial # that would be safe to say that 1990-91 was correct.
The 044 was the state of the art at the time but we have to go back much earlier to 1984 when the 024AV and 034AV were introduced with the revolutionary side tension screw, new lightweight ergonomic  design, and quick access air filter, then in 1986 the 14.1 lb 85cc 064AV was born along with the "big boy" 084. The 70 cc 044 was not ready yet in 1986 so the upgraded 038 Magnum was introduced.
I really enjoyed working for Stihl, I fully believe Hans Peter as a second generation owner was still very intense as his father Andreas was . I hope the new 3 rd generation son is just as dedicated.
The pioneering 024, 034, 044, 064, 084  were definitely a generation of saws that still encompass design we enjoy today.

Holmen, I recently rebuilt an 034 with front tensioner. Any idea on the approximate age of the saw?

Thanks
Jeremy

Jeremy,
I have seen early 024 saws with front tension screws but not a 034. All the 034AV saws that were first introduced in Canada in 1984 had side tensioners, that was the major feature that loggers liked switching over from Huskies and 'sereds.
I presume you are in the states and you guys might have got some early 034s in 1983 which may have had the front screws.
Like I said I saw them on early 024s but not the 034.
Post a pic of this 034 if you can.

Since this is an 044 thread let me start by showing you one of my 10's.


Okay, here is the 034
