I have an stihl 029 super chain saw that the spark plug won't stay in it. What parts do I need to fix it?

If the threads are crossed, stripped or loose, you need to take it to an engineering place and have a 'helicoil insert' fitted, this is a new steel insert that is tapped and threaded into the head after the hole has been enlarged a little.

I can't tighten the chain on my stihl ms 251 chain saw

Pull the side cover and check for a broken or misaligned chain tensioner. I assume that you have loosened the bar nut on the side cover before attempting to adjust the chain tension. The methiod varies depending on whether your model has the side chain tensioner or the quick chain tensioner.

Oil not goingg to the bgar

Have you cleaned the oiling hole in the guide bar.? Scrape out the full length of the guide bar using a cleaning tool. There is an oiling hole at the back of the bar on either side which the oil flows into.

Is oil being pumped out the saw.? Remove side casing and guide bar, run the saw and check the flow.

Saw will start and run but chain wont turn

Chain brake may still be applied.

The chain brake is the front hand guard, pull it towards you to release the safety brake. Check chain tension, the chain may be too tight.

Replacing the fuel vent hose on a Stihl chain saw

If it's the clear vent hose that connects to the tank on the left side, that's it. There is a brass plug inside the hose that meters outside air in the tank to regulate the pressure. The hose connects to the tank nipple, done.
