From what I've seen on that model the relatively early ones before the EPA stuck it's nose into the mix were the hot runners .

My buddy Tom the tree man had an early 066 rebuilt that would run neck and neck with that big Homelite in my avatar and that's saying something .His  MS 660 is a mere shadow to the saw it replaced .

Here is a picture of my Flat Back that I had at the recent Ohio GTG

That 066 has the early cylinder with no compression release.

With the rescue handle, you can get a full grip and the lack of a compression release is not too noticeable.

Where could I purchase a handle like that?

My saw must be a later version of the early model.  I have a curved top, compression release and an aluminum flywheel.

The handle is from a Stihl 460 Rescue Saw

They should be available from the Stihl dealer?

Snow machine and snow blower starter handles are made like thyis

I just wanted to thank everyone again for their help. 

I finally found the correct outer dog ear and the saw is complete!

Just need to order one of those "D" handles now.

Help!

Just used the saw on my first wood procurement and the handle that disengages the chain brake snapped. 

Does anyone here have one off a parts saw?

PayPal?

Can barter for some aluminum welding if needed.
