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.

How do I remove the gudgeon pin from my kawasaki kx 125 1983?


There are 2 circlips (1 on either side that need to be removed first. Then you can either use the special tool available in most tool shops or a bolt and 2 washers and piece of pipe, one washer must be smaller than the outside diameter of the gudgeon pin and the other must be bigger than the pipe. The pipe must have an inside diameter that allows the gudgoen to be pulled through it. You slide the bolt through the large washer then the pipe and then the gudgeon pin hole, then the small washer and then put a nut on the bolt that is slightly smaller thann the washer so it doesn't score the piston as you wind it and the gudgeon pin through the piston and into the pipe.

HI, I have a Suzuki LT80, it starts ok but it smokes like hell and there dosnt seem to be much compression what could this be? thanks.


It seems you have worn rings and/or barrel and piston. You will have to get the barrel off the engine to ispect. Unbolt the carb and exhaust from the engine. Unbolt the 4 nuts on top of the head. Remove the head and barrel from the engine. Inspect the piston for scoring and wear. Remove the piston by removing the circlip next to the gudgeon pin. Do not drop the clip into the engine.(stuff some clean rags in the engine under the piston. The gudgeon pin can now be pushed out of the piston and the piston removed.Have the barrel and piston measured for wear.
If you're on a tight budget you can replace rings only but this is a penny wise pound foolish solution. You'll have the same problem in 2 months time.
It is best to rebore the barrel and fit an oversize piston and new rings. The barrel can also be resleeved but this is a more costly option and should only be exersized if you cannot obtain an oversize piston.
