you can still find the odd 461 heated here but there getting hard to find , dealers only have them , They never made the 661 with heated which is a shame

On the 1118 part number I called Stihl USA they say NLA. Glad I got the couple I found. It is a shame that they don't make there newer saws with heated handles. Guess the market is just not there or the market is there the price is just to much.

Have heard Stihl is no longer going to make Arctic saws.

As I mentioned before some of the stuff is already NLA I have some more to add.
1122 400 1202 flywheel
1128 404 3501 generator 1-wire.
1122 440 3009/3002 wiring harness the two harness fit a saw with carb and handle heat with either single
                                Or 2 wire generator.

I have the 1122 400 1218 flywheel witch has a narrow magnet width of 6mm witch is to work with the 1128 404 3501 1 wire generator. The 1202 flywheel has a 10.5 magnet width to use the 2 wire generator. I have both generators coming 1 used and a new 2 wire coming from Stihl. I will try them both and see how they work. I guess if you have or run heated saws now is the time to get some part stored up. I have looked and there is not a lot of used stuff out there. Should have the generators and 1 back ordered grommet next week some time.

I can't believe they don't sell enough of those to keep making them. Husky seems to have them in all of the popular pro saws.

That was my thought exactly. But Stihl all ready has a higher price point than husky at least in my area. Add a couple hundred more for heated and it is cheaper to buy a husky.

Finally got all the parts. Started with knocking out the cut outs for the 2 black grommets. Then drilled the hole for the on/off switch. Need to clean the whole saw. I will post some pics along the way. The service manual has some pretty good pics to help, but it would be nice to see one in person.
