Well, I have a used metal handle here now. There is one saw ahead of the 028 so I should be getting into in on Monday. Then we will se if my gamble pays off. Any other quirks with this or are all of them quirks? It would appear so from all the above comments!

Perhaps I will be the recipient of good fortune ::)!

Don't think you will have any thing to worry about. I do believe that the metal and plastic tanks are interchangeable. The metal tanks are on the early versions of the 028. And the plastic ones came on the more recent saws. Have a couple here one with a metal tank and 2 with plastic tanks.

Well, I know that the saw in for repair has a metal tank, that is why I gambled on another metal tank.

I think the reason they changed to high impact plastic is because they are less prone to catastrophic breakage .Some times though people who change them to plastic forget it takes different screws which are like a blunted wood screw thread . Those normally threaded bolts won't hold well in plastic .

Thanks Al, that makes me feel a lot better! Perhaps I did not make a mistake on getting another metal tank. We will see.

Well, the gamble on the metal tank turned out to my advantage! The tanks are the same part #, so we are good there. I discovered that I need a ground wire, the one that goes to the switch and has the little brass bullet on the end. If any one has the part number send it along.

These saws IMHO, are a huge PITA to work on!

Thanks for all your help!

I think they are like everything else it just takes getting used to the way Stihl built their saws.
