Stihl 025 250
« on: May 07, 2011, 04:43:50 pm »
I bought this non running 025 today. Its got good compression at 150 PSI. Its in excellent shape. The fuel line is rotted out and i have a new one on the way. Has anybody ran one of these saws? I was just wondering if they are good little saws or are they junk? I already see i dont like the carb, for it has a non adjustable H setting.  >:(

My brother bought one new (before I got into saws and could have hooked him up) in either MS250 or 025 not sure and loves it for his homeowner trimming duties.  I think they are 45cc, clamshell design.

I have no personal experiance with them . A lot of people rave about them though .

On that though I seldom work on any Stihl consumer saws .They will not hold up to tree service work because I have a box full of clam shell parts from 029 and 039's that just couldn't cut the mustard .Trimmers are rough on saws . On the other hand they weren't designed for that kind of service .

An adjustable Walbro WT215 for this saw is about 30$
They are good for what they are, and if you do a muffler mod it's a nice little saw.

Thanks for the adjustable carb info. I will definitely buy one of those.

I got the fuel line installed in my 025 yesterday. I think it runs pretty good for only 45cc. I cant embed youtube anymore for some reason. >:(  http://youtu.be/YRMyDIo9wNQ

Had a stihl 025 dropped off.  Guy said no hurry he just got a new stihl 261 over winter, Christmas present from son I think he said.

Complaints were,  black oily residue getting all over crankcase front and under muffler area.  Black oily residue on the outside clutch cover area.

He couldnt tell me if it was burned mix or bar oil. 

Saw is clean as a pin now so I need to test and see whats going on.

I have a 025 and a MS250 I use for limbing situations.

I tend to like the 025 a little better.

They are .325 X .063.

The 025 has RS chain and the MS 250 has RM chain.

They both have twin needle carbs and muffler mods.

Never seen this before. Almost like the plastic crankcase is worm out.  First I noticed the drum had alot of movement.  That would move the whole motor, not like a worn drum or clutch bearing.
So I checked the 4 crankcase clamshell bolts and made sure they were tight.  Then check AV's and made sure they were good. Then went under recoil and noticed the flywheel did same thing and was making contact with coil at times.
I was thinking crank bearings till I paid close attention. The whole motor is moving up and down not the crankshaft crankbearings. I could watch the tight clam shell bolts moving up down alot with the whole motor in the plastic crankcase.

To me it looks like it needs another crankcase to fix this?
