I have a picture here of a 1986 064AV crankcase I have that had heated handles.
You can see the 1 wire coming out from under the flywheel's generator.

Last pic is another newer 066 I have with a decomp and poly flywheel that only needs a chain brake lever and some new rubber parts. The fuel line is just a puddle of black tar in the fuel tank :D

They both heat up at the same time. I would like to have the resistance numbers just to have them in case if I have a problem. I have ran it with a single wire generator for a couple of years and it works good. Just got a little nervous when I read the post thinking I was going to mess up a $60 rear heating element or a $100 and some dollar handlebar.

@jmester  he said you can go that way but not the other.

you can if you put the older handle bar with a newer two wire generator as they are not backwards compatible

if you want I'll forward the entire bulletin with numbers what your email? 

I have him emailing me the info

So I can run the ribbed handle on the single wire generator. But not the 2 wire generator. Right?

TS = here's all the relevant info for Arctic  version saws in the 044,046,660 ranges

I know he has a 660 but it uses the same single wire generator and components  as the 044 046s just a different flywheel but the magnet diameter changes in 1999 are the same across the ranges going to a two wire setup.  It can be quite confusing after you get to reading. Best of luck !

OK I am downloading and saving to HD the stihl 650 660 044 046 artic

Stihl 650 660 is the service manual and to big to link here. But can email.
