today was 025 / MS 250 day for me. Had a MS 250 that wouldn't hit a lick on July 3 rd. I found the fuel line off the carburetor. Put it back together and it fired right up.

I had accumulated some MS 250 parts the last couple years and I have a nice clean 025 with the bigger bore MS 250 engine in it. I decided to swap a MS 250 Handle/cover, starter assembly, and tank onto it and make it all MS 250. Running a Walbro WT-215 carb, it works out easier to use a 025 tank vent setup rather than the EPA contraption fitted to a MS 250.

I got reminded of the sequence of assembly/disassembly of one of these. On assembly, the coil goes in first and the top handle goes on last! Also when fitting the handle assembly, how difficult it is to get the impulse line on the airbox bulkhead and to fit the top front buffer in place. I remembered how the coil ground wires went and though it took some time, it all eventually was together as a MS 250.

I like these for light limbing and pruning duty in spite of them being more difficult to work on than a Husky 372.

Super nice homeowner use 025 came in while I was out having lunch. I was left a message not running right.
I went to pull it over and could tell right away wasnt right.
Missing clutch bearing for one. Couldnt even find a piece of it. Clutch coming apart. 2 retainers missing and found parts of one mostly. Some pieces bedded into the plastic case. I like how the worm gear wire piece is up under a retainer that was left. Hoping the oil pump isnt hurt, can see some rash there too.

 I see it here. There was no big washer on this one behind clutch on the 025. 250 shows the washer here.

Folks in the chainsaw repair group said the oiler isnt going to work since the case had been chewed up in that area.

 I can see what your talking about now comparing pics. The bottom of oiler has been exposed where the case was chewed up by drum and retainers etc.

 Saved a pic of the 250 in video for ref.

Redneck fix by Jeff Yeo =  You can take out the oil pump and stick a rubber fuel line up inside there and then JB Weld or use some epoxy where itís exposing the oil pump let it dry and pull out fuel line Ive done this to several ms250

They nailed it.   
Well had to run out and check closer. 😥 Thanks guys for the great info on how it sealed the pump in the housing. After cleaning more can even see a hole where parts of retainer dug in. Now to tell owner about this and going to try the redneck fix first.

Going to try what a member of CRG has done in past.  Otherwise I dont think they will put the money in it for a case swap.

 has the 4mm bolt for elbow connector.

rednecked fix hoping it works for them.

 Looks good. Going to have to grind where the connector goes flush with o-ring on the plastic case.
The case was cut through and had to JB both sides. Still waiting on a couple parts that didnt come in yet anyways.

 update = Looks good going through where pump goes. Trying to grind the area where the connector goes as I had to build that back up too. Where a piece of metal came through.

Thanks for heads up Jim. 
Going to see if this redneck idea the guy gave me works or not.
