Did this video help you?

John Murphy: ms290 model

John Murphy: great video. basically if the chainsaw has never had any work done to it, but has been maintained properly. if the top end goes,chances are you're better off just rebuilding the whole thing? for what I searched online for about $100 you can purchase. the top end kit. clutch assembly and bearings. And even the hoses. on mine the carburetor works perfect I just cleaned it out. if I'm missing something that you would suggest doing while I have mine ripped apart waiting for some parts I appreciate the advice. thanks again

Frapo Chino: Thanks so much! I have a ms310 that's giving me some problems. Will try to take it apart and see what's wrong.

Jon L: Do you put the gasket silicone where the seals seat as well? or just on the flat mating surfaces?

Skip Roberts: Thanks Dave for the info I like the old 034 it's made well just needs more power respectfully yours

David Thorne: Excellent video! Thanks for the SKF part number info. Is there a list of conversions like that somewhere? I'd really run the SKF's I do believe.... I get in trouble for having chainsaws torn down on the kitchen table with my oiled up parts on the ice cube trays! Some people... Like a little two stroke oil is gonna hurt you! I say if it makes your Coke taste funny and a hunk of lemon and four shots whiskey ... That'll fix it! Thanks again !!!

Skip Roberts: can you change a 034 stihl into a larger cc saw Changing the power head and piston ?

N DC: Lots of MS290 & the non-pro MS series saws fail early due to those plastic bearings.. If you don't catch it in time (most don't, unless they get lucky & notice the plastic debris while replacing something else), it'll destroy the entire engine. That's why these new non-pro saws will never last like the old ones did. The conscientious, planned self-destruction of their non-pro saws in a few short years of use is obvious in these new homeowner oriented saws, since quality bearings wouldn't have cost much more to install, and would have provided much longer service life..

Fireman Fritz: I am disappointed by the absence of needed information at times like when you re-installed the piston without a ring compressor, then the video jumped to the crank completely installed and you spent almost 2 minutes showing how to apply gasket seal to the block body and head assembly ! Felt like you were teaching a ninth grade shop class. I mean, damn... the only people watching this stuff are going to be mechanics already and if you know how to take off a bolt... you know how to apply gasket sealer.

Thank you for adding the tip to use "fuel resistant" sealer. That was important for me.

I am grateful for the posting though, as it identified the bearing failure, which is what I felt was the problem, but I have never taken one of these apart before. So the step by step has been very helpful. Especially the "long bolt" double nut trick even though it seemed near the end of the extraction the bolt stopped and only the nuts were turning... then the video "jumped" again to the finished task. I would not have thought of that idea myself right away, so thank you. Now I can fix my neighbors chainsaw for him.

I truly appreciate this world wide web stuff. I am 69 years old, grew up on a ranch in Wyoming and remember going to the general store to use the telephone that was just a small oak box with a crank and mouthpiece on it and ear cup hanging off the side. That thing was "high tech" for us.

Now I have this laptop that can connect me with any information the human community has anywhere on earth. And a device that makes telephone calls that fits in a pocket !

We are living in great times !
For me... the 1964 New York world's fair is "coming to pass" and that is very kool.

Mark Me: do you know if the ms 391 has the bearings with plastic race also?

Fredrick Metcalf: You make excellent videos.....very clear, well organized and explained......please make more......and thanks for going to the trouble.....Merry Christmas! ! ! ! ! !

matthew lee: how about a big bore kit for a ms310? is it worth it?

Pierpa_76 Pierpaolo: Wow too 'I have to disassemble my McCulloch up to that point. But I would not know how to unscrew the clutch !! Now it is disassembled and not now know how to block the 'tree so as to force the clutch to unscrew it. I built a key with two pins and 'wheelbase is all in all good. I await advice because I would replace both bearings. Greetings.

Klayton Warner: i am working on rebuilding one of these right now bought it for 30$ and the four bolts  that hold the cylinder in are seized and i mean seized broke 2 #27 torx bits any suggestions?

Walleye Willy: Stihl quality sure has gone down the crapper in the last decade. Plastic inside the crank bearings WTH? Probably made in the same factory in China that build their junk zama's.

Zacarias Hernandez : Have a ms 250 sthil saw, working on the piston, can anyone teach me how to take off bearings? Thanks

Steven Rudd: Ok why did my races cost $8'75' apiece.hmm expensive plastic!

JON Gergeceff: Thank you for taking the time to make this video!
