    The old timer who owns the lot where I cut all my wood dropped his Stihl 025 and broke the rear handle. I'd like to help him get it repaired, as he was helping me at the time it happened. I'm looking for the following:

    1. Illustrated parts list, showing how this thing comes apart / goes together.
    2. Anyone got a rear handle assembly for an 021 / 023 / 025 they'd like to sell?

    Thanks!

    The big aution site is a great resource for used Stihl parts and Arborist is a great site for all things saw, saw repair, and saw mods. Although I spend way more time here and like this site best the Arborist site has great people and I find it nearly as user friendly as Hearth. I go there for second opinions on saw info and there is a lot of crossover from both sites.

    Yep... already found a compatable plastic body from an 023 in England, which may be an option, if I can't find something on this continent. ArboristSite is great, but folks don't know me there... figured I'd get better help here!

    Then again, maybe I'd be better off where no one knows me. ;lol

    That handle comes off and apart in like 10 minutes. No IPL needed, just grab the t 27 and dig in....and photo your way back out. Post pics and we can help .

    Cool... thanks, guys. The owner is an antique car mechanic, so he'll probably want to do the repair himself, but I'll pass all this info on. I already sent him the shop manual that Bret Hart was kind enough to send me, and offered to buy him one of the handles off ebay. His mistake for dropping it (he set it down on the hood of his running tractor, and it vibrated off), but since he was out helping me, I want to help him get it fixed.

    This is a great forum!
