Sounds to me like this gent has ran the dog chit out of them .A big old saw like that would not be subjected to stresses like that if it were used in the business of large removals or stumping .

I mean stumping is bad enough but it isn't 10 hours a day under heavy load .

I've seen saws that split the rim and walked the drum a tad but never blew the clutch drum .Then again they didn't have the power of this big Stihl nor under stress for extended periods of time .

:Dalways check the ground connections :D
if it's a chevy, just put it in the ground ;D
i know what you mean about truck light wiring. i actually pay somebody else to do those jobs ;)

Day 4 after resplicing old connections in wiring. Still couldnt get it right.
So started tracing wiring from fuse box to taillights. Low and behold a dang 6" ground wire I had never noticed before on the frame going into the driver side taillight. 
Went to remove the 5/8 bolt holding wire to frame and she pushed right through my old rusty 89 K truck frame.   ;D 

I had a ground already set up from a ground I made up years back for license plate lights one time. So I just spliced it over and

Only thing after tracing the wiring all the way back and looking at my fuel lines etc too while doing so. This ole plow truck is a time bomb for repairs in the future.  Had to love 1 of the trans line blowing last year while driving on the worst night of the year.
Went ahead and replaced the other line this summer when I noticed a leak starting.

Thanks guys
