    Stihl 500I Aftermarket parts question ( s )

    Stock suspension works good if you only want to run 20 and 24 inch bars. Or for the occasional longer bar. The 661 front spring and buffer is a cheap upgrade and works well if you do want to stiffen it up. The stock muffler isn’t what I would call restrictive. Adding the weight of the...

    455 Rancher Ring Catch

    Husqvarna 555 autotune no spark.

    Set the coil gap to .010” and pull the starter over harder/faster and see if you have spark. The autotune/mtronic saws need a little bit tighter gap and need to be pulled over faster

    Lathe pics and tricks.

    It works OK with the holes in the fins being larger. These are 10 MM apart with a 5MM offset. If I were to do it again, I would go 9 and 4.5 to give more options. I was worried about strength but it’s a non-issue

    Sad deal how some builders end up doing this. Folks sure believe a lot of shît they see on YT. They need to ask around first before sending $ or saws

    Best case halves sealant

    You should still use a gasket if it originally had one. If they aren’t available you can make one from a sheet of gasket material available at auto parts stores

    Used the wrong 2 stroke oil in ECHO CS-490
