MS261 bearing shortage?
« on: December 04, 2011, 07:24:01 pm »
Any parts supply issues in the US with the 261? Sold a new saw the last week of August. Clutch side crank bearing began to fail 1 week later.
Saw came to the shop before any damaged was caused. Ordered the bearings as usual. Order one day, have them the next. Not with 261 bearings. Have been 3 months waiting for the last bearing to come in. Is there a bearing issue with the 261 causing a bearing shortage?

Gave the owner a new saw.

Due to the fact it's a Stihl my guess is you're kind of screwed finding a clutch side bearing in any thing but OEM . Probabley the seal as well .
