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!

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

The last step, for the time being, is to set up the plastic shell back and feed the fuel line through the proper gap in the shell with the goal that the carburetor can get fuel. This shot is simply to demonstrate how the hose attaches to the carb. I haven’t really snared the hose back up in rebuild. assignment writing services UK

when i saw chainsaw i remembered my neighbours who have a chainsaw and his is working with chainsaw most of the time to cutting woods and other different things and it is a good tool to have before this i think old people now also modern people used the axe and with axe you have to do lots of hard work on the other hand chainsaw not taken too much time and also hard work cutting wood and everything needs perfection on that work like if writer writes an Assignment Writing Help UK you saw the quality and if you write this to others it would be a difference between both of them.
