Does the same apply to just a saw with heated handles. I am running a single wire generator. But my handlebar is ribbed and not smooth as in the pictures above. Never dawned on me about different resistance or Output of the generator.

Jason I dont know this stuff. Trevor was giving me info and saved here. Ribbed handle would be the older right handle right?

The one in pic here he said had a newer wrong handle smooth.

I'll copy and paste your question to him.

Maybe the difference is mine is a half wrap verses a full wrap as to smooth or ribbed.

Holy crap Just re read the 1st post.$649USD for this 066. That's $801 Cad what I was planning on selling my low hour 395XP-36 for.
Looks alot like my 066 Arctic Mag like my old pics Kevin posted earlier.
Still got mine and just in the process of rebuilding it and selling it.
Had a dickhead carver last year who was to buy it , a 10mm 044 and a Stihl BT45 gas drill all for a bargain price of $1000 CDN.
I trusted him as he carved at a few of my competitions over the years so I let him take all 3 home and try them out. A week later he brings them back except the drill and says he'll buy them in a month when he gets his tax refund in.
A month later I call him and he says he owes the government money so he can't  buy the saws and drill.
I dig the saws out of storage and find the 066 doesn't start, no spark.
Pulled the plug and electrode gap is completely bridged with carbon. Find out the pto main bearing is gone and that's what carboned up the spark plug.
I call him and asked him "why didn't you tell me the 066 quit running?" He says "ran good for me". Then I was real pissed and told him to bring my drill back. His wife brought it to me.
A week later on Facebook  him and his wife are posting pics of themselves sitting on the beach in the Caribbean . I didn't push it any further as the bearing may have been already going. Maybe the carbon bridged as a sludge that dried after he shut her down.
Never had the saw apart and bought it new in 1992.Still ran strong.
Enough of that rant. Here's 3 pics of my 066 Arctic Mag red Light.
Notice the heating elements on the carb. 2nd pic shows no switch so no heated handles.
Last pic shows a new top handle and new dual outlet muffler cover.

I just took these pictures this afternoon of the old 066. No the new front handle and muffler cover are "new" from about 8 years ago when I last used the saw.
Just new for a well worn 25 year old saw.
Besides the bum pto bearing she still runs good . I can't remember ever changing the diaphragms in the carb. Factory original. Maybe the heated carb helped kept them limber all those years.

What I was sent = the older ribbed style will work with the single wire generator ... I'll have resistance values in the morning ...he should be just fine ... if anything is mismatched when he turns it on one element (handlebar or rear handle) will heat faster than the other before it shorts from over heating ... if he sees that,  act quick and turn it off ...let me know how it goes I can get resistance values if he needs them they are buried in my literature Binder for Arctics
