    What is the correct setting for the summer/winter setting on the 660, am I missing something.

    Should be closed so no air from around the jug can get into air intake. = summer setting.
    Open for winter setting.

    What? You didn't read the manual? I'm only gonna help you by offering to pay shipping of the 660 to my house. I'll fix the setting, then I'll use the saw for a few years to make sure it's working well, and then maybe send it back.

    You are not the right side, but you need to fully close it.

    Thanks XactLEE, and Danno I read the manual and it was closed when we checked it at the shop but if this is suppose to stay open in the winter it seems when you put the cover back on when it is open it actually closes back up.

    I guess tomorrow I'll give the shop a quick phone call or stop by and see why when I tighten the cover down it will push the black piece back in when in winter mode.

    We hit 91 today.

    Oh, I see your confusion. On the side you are on its supposed to be closed for summer. When it's winter you take that black piece and put it in the other slot opposite and it should be pushed all the way down, there, too.

    I stopped this morning and checked, I'm the dumbass... I was thinking it stayed in the same slot for the winter and you just pulled it out some, the winter slot is on the bottom. :red:

    In the second picture you can see the winter slot on the bottom.

    I cleaned all the saws last night and thought I would check the summer/winter setup on the 660, I'll take the file and sharpen it tonight then Saturday we have some nice ironwood that needs bucking.

    I looked at the 391 and noticed the chain was on backwards, glad it stayed in the back of the rhino, butter cutter.
