Remove this screw and pop the cover off of the carb. There is a small screen that sometimes gets plugged with gunk from the fuel. I cleaned mine on my 036 and it ran like new on the factory carb settings


Thanks, that's good info.

Remove the small screen in the muffler. It is a spark arrestor and will get clogged.

You cannot beat a Stihl . I have owned a Stihl for 20 years now , after I put my Deere 66sv on the shelf went to a lighter more powerful 026 pro from Stihl. That 026 pro is a brute!!!!!!!

While I'm on the subject, would 1500W oil be good for chain oil? It was meant for aircraft. I realize I could buy some chain oil, it's just that my father-in-law has this oil and wanted to know if I wanted it.

Buy the chain oil..  It is designed for use with the saw and I'd use that IMHO..

1500 might be a little thick :smilewink:

Growing up, we used oil, good old fashioned heavy weight oil. Probably 80-90w
Saying that, it may be different materials in the chain and bar, or it might be the oil, but we have never run anything but Bar and Chain lube in the Stihl's... And the chains and Bars last longer.

yupper I would also stick with the bar and chain oil, heard once from and older guy that they put bees wax or something similar in the bar oil so it sticks to the bar instead of flying off the bar. dunno ifs its true but it sounded legite.
