Well I tore it down and found a crack at the screw boss that's between the fuel and oil tanks. I repaired the crack
put on a new gasket and it still leaked but not at the screw boss. The case halves did not mate together true so one side is somehow warped slightly. I had another saw for parts and I used the case from it went ahead and installed the
crank and rod and assembled the case halves together filled it with fuel and let it set for about 4 hours or so and no leaks. Ordered new crank seals and a genuine stihl top end kit with two groove piston. Got the seals today and still
waiting on the top end kit. I'll let you guys know how it runs when I get it complete. Thanks again for all the help
so far on my little 009 soon to be a 009L

Received the top end kit today and was wondering what to lube the piston and cylinder with for assembly?
I was thinking just use a quality 2 stroke oil what do you guys do

Well guys thanks for the help with the saw she's running like a new one. 8) Here's what all I did to it
I replaced the crank seals,all gaskets,new piston and rings,new cylinder,rebuilt oil pump,rebuilt carb
New bar and yellow chain because I hate safety chains. The carb may still need some fine tuning because
while idling sometimes it will die but starts right back up. I will post a pic of it in a little bit
