I need an engine rebuild kit for a SX66 Baumr ag chainsaw is there such a kit? Corrie


if you can't find one , be aware that the piston and ring will be generic fit for that cc engine so go to a mower shop with the bits and see if you can get alternate parts
for example I have homelite piston and ring in a husqvarna trimmer for the last 5 years and still starts and runs ok
as long as the bore size is the same and the wrist pin fits in the piston

Poulan chainsaw will kick back when trying to start it. It has a new cylinder and piston kit just put in it.


Sounds like the timing is too far advanced.
I'd be pulling the flywheel and retard the spark about 2 degrees.

Where can I get a free service manual for an MS180C Stihl chainsaw?


Service manual available at this link https://www.manualowl.com/p/Stihl/MS-180-C-BE/Manual/191878

To replace the cylinder and piston is fairly straight forward. Take off the bar and machine top cover and starter pull cover. Remove the handle by removing the black plugs and undoing the anti-vibe springs. Remove the choke and throttle linkages and carb. Remove the exhaust and ignition module. Remove the 'E' clip, washer, clutch drum and roller bearing. The whole cylinder unit will now come out of the unit with a bit of fiddling to get the inlet manifold out. Remove the plastic ring and inlet manifold. Then undo the base of the cylinder unit and carefully pull out the crank and piston. Clean the top of the piston to understand which way round the piston has been fitted, There should be a little arrow showing the direction on top of the piston. The new one will have to go in the same way. With long nose pliers take out one of the spring clips holding the gudgeon pin in place and remove the pin to release the piston.
Refitting is a case of putting everything back in the reverse order. Be careful when refitting the inlet manifold to the cylinder as the small breather piece on the cylinder side must fit into the small hole in the cylinder block below the inlet manifold. If the manifold is more than a couple of years old it will probably be stiff and will need to be replaced!
I strongly suggest that as you take the thing apart you make careful not of what went where so you can refit it to the same location. Also when fitting the new piston into the cylinder lubricate it with oil to make it easier.
