So I am cutting wood w/ a friend the other day, and he says "take a look at my saw for me" after we get done w/ the work. He has a Husky 455 rancher (which I hate..) for his main saw. And he has an older lightweight Echo for a backup. So I know this is his way of saying "fix my saw and you can borrow it for a while..." So he drags out a good-looking but dirty Stihl 026. I know this is one of the 'good ones' so I say sure, with a grin Standard 18" bar, case not cracked, air filter filthy. When I get it home, I take it out of the truck and low and behold, the fuel filter/pickup is broken away from the fuel line inside the tank. Not good. He told me it would take a full tank of fuel for it to even run, and then it hasn't ran for a few years. First thing's first, the chain drive clutch was rusted, so I pulled it all apart, PB blaster, WD 40, and brake cleaner = like new. Left the chain and bar off while I work on the powerhead. I filled it up with fuel, cleaned the plug and put it all back together without the air filter. Pull x 12 = no start. Plug has fire. No fuel atomization.... SO i poured about a teaspoon of premix in it, pull x 1 on full choke = fired up for 2 secs. Do it again, same thing. Doit it 3 more times and it stays running with wide open throttle! I know now that the saw is in working condition. Put the bar on it, tighten the chain and proceed to go and test it out on some logs. At 10:30pm. My neighbors probably hate me. SO do any of you all have experience or knowledge of the 026? Seems to be a pretty lightweight powerhouse so far! Easy to adjust, but I gotta get that fuel pickup fixed asap.
