oem vs after market seal
« on: January 22, 2020, 03:01:52 pm »
Just ordered crank seals for the 044 I'm trying to resurrect.  HOLY CRAP  $$   I figured oem would be the best approach for these seals since I don't want to be tearing this saw apart again.  Some of the aftermarket seals I found were just too cheap to believe that they would hold up.  Any thoughts on after market seals or, for that matter, any after market parts.

Hope all is well and have a great one.

I've tried some afm in the 026 034 036 saws.  Still in them today for locals.

Some in the china made 66 right now too.

Seems to depend on who you get them from.  But yes OEM is best but sometimes costly. 

Have had good luck with these folks.  https://www.sawagain.com/

Prices there are really hard to believe.  Next time I'll go that route and see what happens.  Thanks for the info.

Later and hope all is well.
