Just finished putting my 1991 066Mag Arctic  back together with new OEM part overhaul.
Putting her back to work tomorrow. First time in about 10 years.
Stuck a 25" ES on it and have spare 28" and 36" ES bars if wood gets bigger.
Interesting she ran good with half of the PTO bearing's balls missing :D as the pic shows.
Interesting the new OEM bearing only has 7 ball bearings. Old one had about 16.
Put the original P/C back on as they were still in near perfect condition.

Think the old pto bearing is just missing the retainer and used 8.   Pulled down saws that the bearing was like that too.

I wonder if the old 16 ball bearing style was more durable then the later 8 ball bearing?The retainer was still intact on the crank journal side.
If you look at the seal next to it you'll see a big wad of sludge like the balls dissolved or something.
No damage to the piston or cylinder what so ever.

Ok now I got it Kevin. In my excitement getting the 066 together I got totally clued out on that.
Yes plastic retainer is gone and a blob stuck to the seal. Haha goes to show how many bottom ends I changed out . I did a lot in the 1970's early '80s on the old Jonsereds but my memory doesn't work so good after 40 years ago.

So after last winter wrenching and sharpening other people's junk for the first time I'd sooner be outdoors making money cutting wood like I'm doing right now.
Here's some pics of a couple of jobs I did today.
Feels great to have the 066 back in my hands .Sure don't miss those clumsy high top Huskies.  About vibration? My 066 is smooth, must got a balanced to zero deflection crank in it, I don't  know but she's smooth.
Also put the 63PS 16" back on my new MS261CM. Been a while since using .325 23RS for the last year and the 63PS was a pleasant surprise with the bigger diameter 7 pin Picco rim over the tiny 7 pin .325 rim.

Just waiting to fill my 261 066 herd with a 462 with a 20" Stihl Light bar to take the main go to saw chores.
