Hey y’all, it’s been awhile since posting anything here due to moving states and having the shop packed up for about 6 months. The shop is still mostly packed, but I’m finally starting to get WSM headquarters back up and running! So no, this is not a post that some would consider to have much to do with woodworking, but since I’m mainly a turner, my chainsaw is very much part of my process. Hopefully there’s something here that some of y’all will find helpful!

So, without further delay, I’m sure you can guess what’s next. Here’s a run down of the things I replaced in my rebuild.

Piston & rings
Cylinder gasket
Manifold spacer (between carb and cylinder)
Muffler, manifold, & carb gaskets
Ignition module
Spark plug boot
Spark plug
Fuel line & filter

If this blog post was not so crazy long and in-depth I’d just repost the article here. But, that would take inordinate amounts of time and that’s hard to come by (especially with a baby!).

If the items above sound like the kind of awesomeness you’ve just gotta read about then here's the link!

If however you are offended that I’ve not rewritten the entire post here… We’ll that’s just too bad I guess :) Hope you guys and gals enjoy!

Good blog, mike. I took a Remington apart one time and could not get it back together. The gas tank housing was the biggest problem for me. Never could get tit to fit right again after separating it

Do you like Husqvarna or Stihl better?

Hey Jim,

I am partial to husqvarna. Actually that’s an understatement, I much prefer husqvarna. From my experience husqvarna’s are easier to rebuilt as well. Just my opinion though.

Glad you liked the blog!

Regards,

Mike

Yes I did like the blog. Unfortunately my hands are getting so bad that I can’t do all the repair work I used to like doing so I have buy new or hire the work done. The new stuff is crap compared to the old products..too much plastic that I usually replace with brass when I worked on it.

cheers, Jim
