I'd post pics of my 1992 066Mag Artic red light if I could. The saw in the above pics looks exactly like mine except mine had a "Digital" decal on the top cover and a dual outlet muffler.
But also my Arctic had a heated carb not heated handles. Up here in chilly Canada where we had to log in down to -40 below it was more important to keep the carb from icing up then to worry about cold hands.
We central Canadians are already climatized.  Just a good pair of wool liners in leather mittens with a trigger finger on the right hand is all we need.... haha.

Some found so far.  I know there is more here in a thread.

Willard I am just guessing that 066 artic in original post has heated handles too. No clue really.   

Larry do you have any info on the ones sold here back then?

Willard's saw.

Thanks for finding those Kevin. I see the heated handle switch on your other 066 you earlier posted. But I think back in those early red light days Arctic meant one or the other...heated carb or handles.
I sold my 066 (pictured) last winter and gave the guy 1 month warranty but then took it back when he didn't come up with the money.
I'm going through it this winter with a total OEM rebuild, sandblast, powder coat and hopefully sell it down in the States.
I'm opening up my shop to the public in a few months as a saw sharpening and bar, chain retail business.

Does yours have the same switch?

Good deal on business side. It brings in extra $$$ on your own time on the side. ;)

No switch on my 066 Arctic. Its heated carb is controlled by a built in thermostat that keeps the carb at a constant 77F according to Stihl Canada.

Since moving up here to Thompson 3 years ago my tree service winter off season is now 2 extra months longer. 5 months off last winter so I definitely need a new business plan.
Just going to sharpening sawchain and sell bars, chains and sprockets. Maybe get into tuneup but no rebuilds or repairs.

TS shared some info with me on the saw.

That's the newer smooth style arctic handlebar with a different resistance value than what the generator is... they overheat and don't work you need to update the element in the rear handle and the generator... glad you walked away.

 I've learned that if you don't have copious parts to back up one crossed wire you shouldn't own Arctics....

Two Versions of Arctic Stihl' s
Single Generator Wire Version (looks like speaker cable) ...only contains a handlebar heater and rear handle heater ...

Double Wire Generator Version (Green and yellow wires)
Handle bar and handle heater plus a heater for the carb with thermostat switch that operates below 70F...

These two don't interchange and have vastly different resistance values
