Stihl 180 c be

Stihl 180   can the regular clutch cover be used to replace the tool less covers?


Took a like new stihl 180c with case and extra chain on trade.   Didnt really need or want but helping out a younger guy from work. Know how it is.
Plus I was thinking of my dad with the easy start deal. Even though I dont like that tool less tensioner deal.

IMO best easy start system out there is on stihl. I had one here on a 250. Me and Jim checked it out and they are just plain slick for older or people with shoulder and or  hand injures or problems.

You can pull rope 1" at a time till it winds it up then it takes off on its own if need be.

If dad dont end up with it. 180 or 3900 will get sold.  Heck might use for myself as I get older.  ;D

As it came in.  The guy said they had 200 trees to work on and the 180 wasnt getting it done.  :D  His buddy was using a PP330 I had sold him yeas ago.

Pretty sure I will be cleaning this up and giving to dad for Christmas. 

Just in case he didnt want the case I wanted to know what else it fits. As I know he feels about cases the way I do. Heck the poulan 2000 original case is still here for that saw I gave him to use as he dont do cases.

Stihl Woodsman Chainsaw Carrying Case   Fits MS 170 to MS 460 with 20” bar. (Excludes MS 441 and wrap-handle saws.) Replacement parts available.  This was good to know and found on stihl website.

Now this part is just stupid. Distributor Suggested Retail Price DSRP:  $49.95 Really. Free maybe with saw.   https://shearerequipmentmansfield.stihldealer.net/products/chain-saws/accessories/cases-and-bar-scabbards/cscarry/?_ga=1.260414667.793714064.1420052069


So still need clutch cover swap info if it will work or not. Tensioner deal may be deal breaker too.

Will the 170 180 saws have enough balls to pull the PS PS3 chains?

The 180 and 180C have different crankcase part #'s

However, this could be because the studs are different?

You will need two bar studs for a 180

The complete tensioner assembly which is the same as the 250?

And the chain cover which is also the same as a 250?

Two bar nuts

PS3 is in the catalog for a 180 with a 12, 14, & 16 .050 bar, but the bar that came on some 180's was only .043 gauge.

That would be neat to have a 180 with a 14" Bar and a 50DL PS chain.
