056 timing mod
« on: January 01, 2019, 02:54:04 pm »
At the end of 056 Super production and before 056 Mag2 production ,Stihl was sending us dealers kits to convert Supers into "056 Magnums". The kit consisted of a high flow air filter and carb cover,a 056 Magnum badge,and instructions to alter(advance) the Super's ignition timing. The timing advance really made the saws run a lot stronger,even to the point they started blowing the wrist pin bearings apart for the first time on odd occasions,to which Stihl started making the bronze-coated bearings you see today,which cured the problem.
To perform the mod remove the flywheel,then loosen the stator plate screws. Now rotate the stator plate clockwise,until the washers under the stator screws just line up with the end of the stator slots,then tighten them down. It's just that easy and the saws run much harder,and had no failures.
Experience builds real horsepower...
