    I get it. Everybody makes mistakes. It takes a certain level of maturity to own up to it.

    After over a dozen tanks this thing is still impressing me. A banshe she is. Let’s see how long she last. I did manage to break one of the cover screws already. Dumb ass quarter turn things. Don’t really know what I did wrong but it popped right quick. Unless it becomes a problem I’ll call it a learning curve. As of right now Stihl made it right. My cost was a bit over a grand but I get treated well by the dealer. They might have sold it at cost for all I know. My reviews go a long way for them. Doesn’t hurt that the company I work for spends a hell of a lot of money there.

    Yup. A family friend, who was a cat engine engineer (but wrenches on everything for fun) explained to me that the engines themselves haven't changed since the heavier mixes, they just rely on the better oil to do its job better. Run oil heavy, and then tune accordingly, because heavy oil actually leans it out because there is less gas there. I don't run them like you fellows do tho, but I've had the same trimmer for close to 2 decades now, and ran the piss out of it when i had a mowing business. Usually just clean plugs, takes a couple seconds with carb cleaner and a wire wheel.

    I ran 32:1 and 40:1. Never any plug fouling if you tune your saws to your mix. Never any smoke either. Synthetic here.

    I run synthetic mix oil and there's no buildup. Saws run forever, even modified saws. No need for spark plug changes.

    From the get-go they gave me 3 different types - the doc said most people just get 1 or 2. Interesting times are coming, I 'spect!

    Apart from air filters and some basic maintenance, if it ain’t broke I don’t fix it.

    Raj replied to a thread How long do your saws last? in Chainsaws!
    I run a bit more oil, fouls up the plugs a bit faster. I do just clean some plugs but at less than $2 I can even afford it. In my mind I'd rather have a well lubed saw and replace the plug than the cylinder and piston. Just my 5 cents.

    I would have thought they would have been nuking it form the beginning with a higher strength. Bummer Boss, well maybe the stronger dose will do the trick.

    A second full rebuild? I’ve only had the top ends done. By the time the bottom needs rebuilt the saw is way past its prime and the cost is to close to new. I’m gonna experiment on doing a top end. I’ve got half a dozen blown up 461’s to play with. Might as well give it a shot. Meteor piston sound right? I’ll have to do some home work but if this weather wants to keep being assholish I’ll need to find a hobby
