Molten piston on ms241-c
« on: July 05, 2016, 03:28:55 pm »
My MS241-C finally died in my hands while notching logs. 3 firewood shelters, 1 summer cottage, 3 lean-tos, 1 log sauna and about 6 repairs of log buildings. I have already ordered new ms241, but id like to resurrect my old one as secondary notching saw. New one cost about 600. Original Stihl spares, for my old one  costs 300 in lisenced Stihl dealership. I ordered aftermarket piston (27) for my saw and cleaned the aluminum residue from cylinder with 320 grit sandpaper. I`m hoping to get 2 fully operating saws for my log hobbies. Old one got too hot because cool air intake sucked my shirt against the grid.

I was wondering has anyone sanded down the cylinder after this kind of malfunction?

I've done a bunch. Just make sure there's no plating missing on the edge of a port.

Piston left some **** on the exhaust port side of the cylinder, but there was no flaking of plating near the aluminum residue. I guess i manage to fix this mess up. Well at least if i recall all the little parts placements.
