Kevin post a picture of that T- post puller.   I might be in need of one and could maybe duplicate what you have.

It's perfect let me tell ya. Guy was a metal worker type too. Between you and me somewhere from the old racesaws days.

Will go get some now.

I'm declaring this 1991 Stihl 025 project done . . . It runs like a champ.

It was a great experience setting under the old sugar maple on pretty days working on this chainsaw while it was on the tailgate of my truck.

Naturally, the shop cat had to help me but after a few rubies, he would fall asleep across my feet. Unfortunately, the saw has cat hair stuck in the oily parts. 

It was a pleasure to get this old 1991 saw going. Only thing is there is not much of it that dates back to 1991 any more except the cylinder and maybe the crankshaft?

Stihl MS250 parts interchange onto the 025 for the most part and you can get the MS250 parts from Stihl. However, some of my parts came from Ebay.

The saw looks real good.   

I just met a guy who had a truck full of firewood and got to talking with him and found out he has a 026 that quit running for him a couple of years ago.   So  I offered to take a look for him.
A carb rebuild and it is back up and running.   I checked it in some wood and not a bad running little saw.

;D

Good running 026 or 026 PRO saws are real sweet hearts.

It would be unusual for one to win a cookie cutting contest against a 346XP but they have a excellent feel about them out in the woods.

I really like my 026 PRO. I think it came to Cut4fun's shop with a galled piston? It sure runs good now after he fixed it up. I think he put another cylinder on it too?

I took the 20" X .325 bar off and put a new 3/8" x 16" Stihl Rollomatic E bar and RS chain. I shortened the like new 20" X .325 Stihl RS chain to 62 DL and put it on the 025.

I believe this one is a 026 pro.  I was kind of checking it out to see what kind of modifications could be done to it, if the opportunity happen to come up.

A regular one runs as good as a PRO but the PRO has a clutch bell driven oil pump and the oiler is adjustable. The PRO also has a compression release.

Something I observed disassembling the engine of these 025's & MS250's is that this 1991 Stihl 025, the big bearing on the rod has full compliment rollers with no cage like is on the MS250. I don't know if that is good or bad?

Also one needs to be aware that there was a 42mm piston, then they made it a 42.5mm

Fish,

I bet you have had a lot of this family of Stihls apart and could tell us a few things about them?

This particular 42mm bore engine really runs good. Of course my other two 42.5 engines run good too. It is that this engine is no slouch just because it is the older version. Maybe it is because it has the WT-215 Walbro carburetor?
