I may be done with that dealer. I am buying the sharpenin guid today and touching up the blade. I am also going to order the clutch tool today as well, for the craftsman. The oil resovoir does not go down at all. I am not sure if my dad ever really learned to sharpen a chain as the chain looks to be filed straight and not at an angle either. Going to watch a few videos and re-read my manual on sharpening the chain on the stihl. It cut really well yesterday. I added a bit of the fuel addative as well. WIll be looking into trying to get some non-ethanol gas as well. I think that the place i purchased my gas before has more than 10% ethanol. The stihl sounds a different at idle now. It has the burbling sound as talked about. There is a tiny lag on the throttle but it picks up fast. It took a few more pulls to get it started on the first round, but after cooling down for a few hours it only took one pull to get it going again. This saw has the easy to start mechanism on it as well. I was wondering if buying the carbide chain is worth the extra money. I am looking to see if an 18" bar will work for this saw as well. I think the 16 is perfect and gets the optimum power from the saw but think it may work well on the saw. I looked at the muffler and it has 3 vents on it with a screen behind it. Is this a factory port or just the standard muffler design. I may take it to the other dealer that prof suggested to look over it again, and be sure that the carb and everything is tuned correctly. Will be cutting today, tomorow, sunday, and monday morning THe tech said that on orders onder 150.00 or so the frieght charge would have been 10.00. I would have gladly spent the ten dollars to get an extra 10 days and possibly 1-2 chords done instead of being that far behind and maybe having to spend 150.00 per chord to make up for it. I still may wait until mid winter, or spring to install the burner. I want to be sure that the wood is seasoned at least a year, even the standing dead stuff, before I look at burning anything. I think this may be the best idea. It will allow me to cut for next year, this year, and start cutting for 2015-2016 burning season in the spring and get ahead of the game.
