    Big saws are nice! Nice log. Hand winch is a must. I'd rather be bored than tired.

    That's what I was thinking for my band saw mill.....since I have an electric motor repair shop. I have an electric motor on my log splitter.

    My negative about the 3120 was the front end chain tensioner.

    FFS, my f150 has a rattle. Sounds like a heat sheild or something. I thought I got it, one was loose on the driver's side exhaust manifold. Seems that was not it. :(

    I run 40:1 in my mix, I have a lot of used saws. In my mind it helps. When my 088 stopped on me it really sucked milling with the 066, at least in my mind. I'd still like to try double 066/660's.

    Nice! I'd like to find another 066/660 to put on a double end bar..... One that needs repair is fine by me. :D

    Raj replied to a thread Stihl 088 carb problem in Chainsaws!
    I have not epoxyed the crack yet. I hate to say I think my fuel filter was a big issue that I over looked. Carb did have some crud in it, and damaged carb kit didn't help, nor the long delivery time for parts. I hope I have it fixed. Milled a 9ft long white oak no problems today, RPMs matched the throttle. Going to look into a tach to mount on the saw when milling. I tend to stay away from cheap filters, any good sources for decent aftermarket fuel filters?

    I'll put a dap on, wrap some metal around it. New fuel filter just came in, hope it's all solved. Did a couple passes, one on some white oak and a spruce board for a custy.

    A Facebook page mentioned that cracks tend to develope in the plastic angle fuel inlet, sucking air. Seems it's not a separate part. Mine has a small crack. What can be done? Rubber extension?

    Dealer got a whole new kit for me, sold at cost because of the other new kit had the bent diaphragm. Edit: cylinder compression easily reached 150psi.

    Pressure test. Held 6psi for more than 5 minutes. Pressurized through impulse line. Metering diaphragm was bent up bad in the carb kit. It didn't push the meter arm down far enough? Edit. Saw held a vacuum no problem.

    No, just a smooth engine bog. Idles fine and throttles great no load. Thanks all. Going to make plates for pressure testing tomorrow. Dealer has some replacement parts for me. Hope I solve this. Damn milling is backlogged.

    No pressure test yet. I did discover the new diaphragm was bent up. Hope that's the issue. Dealer has a new kit coming tomorrow, otherwise I'll try to bend it back.

    Raj started a thread Stihl 088 carb problem in Chainsaws!
    My 088 was acting up. kicking back when cold. Then it would loose power and die in a cut. It would idle no problem. When reving no load it would sound great, no sputter or hesitation. Spark plug is a nice brown ashy colour with some light black oil around the threads, I do run 40:1 oil. I put in a carb kit but there was one small brass plug I didn't change and a screw in nozzle that I didn't touch. Ran good for a few heavy cuts. Now today it seems to over rev, the speed doesn't match the throttle and when you release the throttle it will drop RPMs to a higher idle, then within seconds rev down to idle. Saw will idle and rev no problem, no cutting. Whole carb is not available in my area. Any idea what I missed when i put the carb kit?
