    for free hopefully. I was given a 023 that looks to be in good condition and has spark and good compression. when I got it the carb was stated as new but all in parts in a ziploc bag. I put it back together as intuitively as I could and while I work on very high end race cars daily never a chainsaw and not familiar with the carb in any way.

    It is very hard to start but will run for a few seconds and it sounds like a fuel problem to be honest. Before i start buying a bunch of parts I would like to verify I put the carb together properly. My thoughts are if the carb correctly assembled I would buy a new fuel filter air filer and fuel line from tank to carb as they are fairly cheap.

    The service manuals are not published online. They are reasonably acquired through a dealer however, or ebay (prolly about $20 on ebay :confused:), or there is a "Beg for manuals" thread over on ArboristSite.com

    I found a link on the Stihl site to get manuals and they sent me one for my 026 in a week free of charge. It is the same manual that I got from the beg thread mentioned above.

    I also got the shop/parts manual from that beg thread.

    somehow I've got an 026 manual I downloaded last year to my PC. Keep looking

    ( I've got the original but it's so much bar oil and saw dust gluing the pages together it's useless)
