MS 660 arctic
« on: November 24, 2015, 10:53:30 pm »
I am thinking on doing an arctic setup on one of my 660. Going to check on pricing tomorrow. Wanted to see if they work well and how well they hold up. I love cutting trees but I hate cold hands.

Never used a stihl heated handle.   C heated handle,  W  heated carb.

Have had it on a husky and worked fine.

I like the old school heated handles on my jonsered 490 and partner 5000 the best.  No carb heat on them, but used exhaust to rear handle and front handle and was adjustable. I have pics of this set up.

I am not going to do the heated carb option just the handles. The parts are pretty expensive. Would be better to buy one that has the stuff on it already.

Ordered the parts today. Most of the stuff is back ordered. The parts guy and I where both saying around a month to get all the pieces but I guess we will see. Think this is going to make winter cutting a whole lot more fun.

Found that some of the parts are all ready NLA. No surprise really heated handles saws are not that popular at least where I live. I will post the part numbers here in a bit. I found one of the parts that was NLA in my parts bin brand new. I was thankful for that. The other I found a guy in ct that had 2 of them, I bought them. Took about 2 hours to find them on the bay.

Stihl is to of quit making the arctic saws , If you find a new one buy it , The stihl heated works better than the husky heated to me , but the 562 heated works not bad, the 372 heated not as good

1110 432 9200 grommet  fits on the back of the on/off switch on most Arctic saws and regular saws           like 031
                                      076/090 on regular ignition kill switch.
1118 432 2200 nut   Mainly for Arctic saws. This nut attaches the switch to The carb box. It has a       long
                               Shoulder so that the end of the switch is covered and protected.

Also could not get the 2 wire generator or the flywheel that goes with it. But I would not say for sure that they are NLA. As the Stihl distributer I have has never sold some of the parts and my not be in there system in witch they say non order able part. But my dealer called them and some of the parts they added to there system.
