Thanks Pete.
I got a lot of husky bars
Always short on Stihls,, not sure why.
Last two saws came sans bars.
I have a new 16 for the 036
Will see what I can come up with.
Saw was cheep so maybe spring fer new.
Cut the bar stud threads down horizontal to run husky bar's

Can I borrow a saw? Why use your own wnen you can use someone else's
I don't care at all to loan them out
People are to caught up babying saws
I loan to people I know can run them.
They need run they set for Months
i loan out the 372 chusky's often at best a used clone is worth 100.00
The trustworthy get stock 2 series builder's i put together.
Everyone has returned them better than when they left here clean with fresh mix
Many times with new chains
Nobody gets my ported saws though.

I know I'm going to get flamed, rightfully so, I was told to use this saw.

What's the secret to starting this POS? Swear to Christ it takes 38 pulls of the rope to start the mfer. Makes greendohn look like he's moving fast.

And if the saw sits for more than 3 minutes, it's another 23 rope pulls to bring it out of autotune hell. Yesterday I let it run for 4 hours and refueled it running.
It does have some power but nothing to get excited about.

The secret is around the 56 second mark, but I think you should watch the entire video.
