Got it back together last week and finally had a chance to put it to wood.
Started on 5-6th pull, reset the idle and carb jets and just pizz revved it a little not over doing the rpm. Played around running it for about 1/2 hour.
Put the bar on today and went a cutting. Nothing big and nothing long term under load.  Sweet saw, runs strong. I'd like to see the oilier put out more, but it's getting it done.
Went through about 3/4 tank of gas, let it cool down pulled the muffler to take a look. One faint line but otherwise piston looks good. I had nightmares about not getting all the transfer out and trashing the new piston & rings. Hopefully I've avoided that.
It seems to be leaking oil around the grommet in the tank. I'll have to take it to the dealer and see if they'll still honor the recall/fix that Stihl put out.
Have a great day
