I finished putting together my restored 460 last night. As some might remember, I originally traded old ammo for this saw when it was advertised on CL as a 440 (without an ID plate). I have a "new" 440, so I figured it would make a good beater/future parts saw for mine. It was in very sad shape on the outside, with a crack in the handle, but it ran like a champ so I traded for it. When checking parts # for an item or two, that's when I suspected it might be a 460 instead, and a serial # check via the dealer confirmed it. I was going to just slap a fiberglass patch on the handle and leave it as is, a good cheap beater 460. New handle/tank assemblies on ebay were running $120-160. I figured that I would keep my eye out for a nice used one. Then one day I spy brand new ones for $88 buy it now........ sold! As the remainder of the saw was all scratched up with much of the paint gone, it just was not going to look right sitting in that brand new handle.......... so I bought a can of Stihl OEM paint. I completely tore it down inspecting the piston and cylinder too. They looked fantastic. I picked up a very nice used top cover, a new ID tag, and an HD2 air filter and "like new cover". I cleaned everything up, painted the metal on the case, and put it all back together........... thank goodness there were no parts left over when I was done! I only wish I had taken a complete "before photo" to compare it with. I did still have the beat cracked handle so I photographed the saw with the old handle next to it......... quite a change. I figure to only use this saw the rest of this year cleaning up after my "big" 120 tree timber job last May, then sell/trade it. All of my really big trees are down now to where my 440 and 360 can easily handle anything left. I'll just use the 460 with my 28" bar to take down a number of big stumps that are higher than I want, and cut up several big double trunk butt pieces that are left. About all I'm going to do more with it is a new duel port muffler. With the help of alot of you folks, I've come a long way since never working on a saw before last October. Thanks!
