    I just thought I don't see a lot of this on this site so I would post some pic's of the old 064 a friend gave me....

    [​IMG]

    I know pretty right???

    I got lots of offers for it on other sites so I thought it may be worth fixing up...Then the tear down and clean up began...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Dig the gaskets..O and did I forget to mention that this was a runner????

    Ok no the wife was not happy...

    [​IMG]

    But it did clean up nice..

    [​IMG]

    I sent out the muffler to be modded...Man did great work and did not charge me a dime....

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I have to go check the fire I will try to post more later....

    Thanks for looking!!!

    Got lucky and won a 066 OEM P&C on ebay...So I went ahead and ordered a set of Caber F-Cast rings...

    Ok so the 066 has a hole for a decomp valve and I want to use it but the top cover has no hole..After finding out that the 066 top cover is wider and wont fit right I decided to make a shroud for it myself...

    [​IMG]

    Not my best but it works just fine..

    Put it together and tried to set the carb and found out there was a hole in the manifold boot..got a new one today and now she runs sweet..Still need to dial in the carb but it is real close...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I'm still not done but that's where I'm at today...

    Looking for a 066 factory type wrap bar..Also want to get a 9 pin rim...After that I'll see what else I get into...


    So for this free running 064 I'm now real close to $400 LOL!

    Thanks for looking!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Thanks folks!!!!

    Yeah a vid on the tube would be sweet but I have no way of making one...

    The muffler mod surprised me with a high pitch tone rather then a low deep tone.... My left ear rang for awhile last night....

    Lots of trouble today..Should have never got started...

    I went and installed a new unused Stihl E bar 20"..Every time I snugged up the bar nuts the chain would stop turning...The new after market sprocket cover seems to be just a touch taller where it contacts the bar and it pinches the rails closed...NICE!!!!! So I threw on a old beat up Stihl ES bar and it spins freely...

    Ok so now I'm ready to set the carb..Couple of pulls she's up and running..The chain is spinning out of control so I go for the idle screw..I can hear the saw idle changing as I adjust the screw but the chain never stops....About this time I notice fuel allover the place..It's leaking out the tank vent???
    Loosen the fuel cap and it stops tighten it back down it is starts.....

    The only pick I took today...

    [​IMG]

    Going to the dealer for new clutch springs in the am. That should stop the chain and I can get to tuning the carb..I just hope the have a answer for the tank vent leaking......

    When my friend got this saw it had a bad piston in it...He gave it to me with a box of parts for the saw...

    [​IMG]

    He said that they honed the cylinder and threw in a new piston and ring set....

    Then only ran the saw a few times after that....The piston I took out looks like it had been run more then a few times.....

    Loggers around here are real hard on there stuff...My FIL is the worst!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Run it till it stops then patch it anyway you can then run it till it stops....No one ever cleans there gear.Been at the stihl shop so much lately seeing what folks bring in is almost scary... You know if you clean it once and awhile it will last for 30 years or so right?????

    What are you running for a second saw I see in your pics?

    My BIL has a ported MS660.......I like to borrow it now and then.
    My buddy down the street runs a MS460 and a Husky 2130.

    So I set the carb to the factory settings this morning and headed to the stihl dealer to have them try and set it...H and L 1.5 turns out and the idle all the way in....Well it took all of two min and he had it set...

    Well it rained all day so no cutting....I want to wait now till the 9 pin rim shows up.As soon as it does I will need to get a chain made up to fit.I'm betting on a 74 dl........

    Anyway just as I was about to give up it seems to be working out for me now.....

    Yes but I'm sick so I haven't messed with it much today...

    74DL Oregon chain da##it !!! What stihl dealer doesn't carry stihl chain on a roll???

    Anyway with the 9 pin the chain if fast..He reset the carb today with me holding the saw.He gave me a nod and told me to open it up he went to tuning wow is all I can say..The chain is really moving on this thing now..

    I applied a decal today..I am still hoping to get a USA bar from Madsen's.......

    Anyone ever have the dealer tell you to stop messing with a saw and put it in some wood??????

    You guys are FAR too nice to equipment.

    I've got a craftsman chainsaw here I mentioned buying a blade for cost me $10 on ebay. It was listed as "not running". I put a metric ton of seafoam in there, dumped it out after letting it sit for a day and found out it needed an o-ring. I went into the junk box, found one which was "close enough", tossed it in there and it runs fine although it does blow oil.

    Then again it's a chainsaw, so who cares? :)
