Stihl 029 Super
« on: July 22, 2014, 12:56:32 pm »
Stihl 029 super that looks new still with years of barns dust covering it and  9 chains to sharpen.  :P

Guy bought it for $50 PHO not  running on word it ran when put up years ago.  Hopefully this dont get to interesting.

Looks like it could look like new with a wipe down. I can see the bar code sticker on the front of crankcase.


Anything different on the 029 super compared to the 290, know the same cc? Maybe tank vent etc updated?

I know about the  029 being smaller bore and super being same as 290 bore.  New owner didnt.

 :D   quick look see fill up and  fire up.  :o   Missing tank vent ask me how I know.  :D  Took off fast idle throttle plate or something stuck open.  Idle screw not even touching.
Off switch wasnt working and lucky had air filter off to close the choke to shut off. The plastic switch seems out of kilter or things are misaligned.
Pulling carb next for a look.

Missing prefilter too.


Anyone got good pics of the plastic switch at brass clip and trigger areas.  IPL not helping me much looking at it.

The first pic is and 290 handle and  the last two are from a 390 handle should be pretty close as to your 029

Have had those brass clip give me some fits from time to time with 026. Make sure there is good contact with the clip on the kill wire. Some times they just need a little tweak with needle nose to get them back right.

Thinking the clip in back is under the the switch part on this one.  Will check another day.

Thanks for posting up pics.

You are right could be behind it or up above the the switch shaft and over the kill wire

To cool thats all it was even with the half throttle staying open. Never seen one stay half throttle due to the assembly switch being out of kilter.

The clip was under the assembly switch as shown in pic.  This caused half throttle at start, choke not working properly and stop switch not work all due to that clip.   :o The on/off I understand, but the half throttle I still dont see how it should effect that but it did.

Otherwise the saw checks out and is a great deal for the guy for $50. 

9 chains done too.  :-X :-\ :P
