The first thing I'd suggest is to check the vent on the fuel tank. It should be either a molded plastic slip-on device that attaches to a stub on the top of the tank or it will be a small hose that does the same thing. Inserted in the end of the small hose, if so equipped, should be a tiny, tiny, tiny set screw which serves as a 'restrictor' to allow the tank to vent but not the gas. Either the tube has fallen off, cracked or the restrictor is missing.

Keep burning up piston on exhaust side of 066 stihl on second jug and piston i know oil mix is right running three other stihl saws on mix


It sounds like you are running lean. Not a lean oil/gas mix but a lean Air/fuel ratio. This engine runs hot as a high performance engine. any air leaks such as crank seals, manifold gaskets or muffler gaskets can give you too much air for the fuel coming in.

Secondly from the fuel side:
Ethanol (curse it) combines with oils that have no nondispersants making a white chalky poweder in the fuel system causing less fuel to mix with air. any blockage or pin hole leak can cause less fuel to be brought into the engine thus less cooling and lubricating.

Your carburetor and fuel filter need to be serviced and adjusted correctly or they will affect the mix.

When done the engine should run no faster than 13,000 rpm top no load speed.
This engine should idle smoothly at 2,500 with no more than 150 rpm change

if the speed is not as listed above when the rebuild is done you need to go back into the machine.

Call up a shop like www.arcolawn.comto get a EDT8 tach. it is well worth the money.

good luck

Petrol leaking when turned up side down,Ryobi Chainsaw


Upside down is not a usual sawing position--only upright, or turned to the left or right side is recommended. If you need to undercut something, keep the saw upright and cut with top side of the chain/bar.This can lead to kick-back if the tip comes free of the log/branch, so you need to control the saw carefully. That's also why there is a chain brake on all newer saws. The leaking may be occurring where the fuel lines pass through the wall of the fuel tank. Hope this helps!
