I guess the first thing to look at is chain free to move ?, do this with saw off ! and not running , if its not free to move give a good look at the chain brake , if chain moves free with a gentle push , then your clutch is in need of replacement good thing as stihl makes parts for there old saws still too , now if your saw was 20 yrs old your clutch is rebuildable

First remove the cover,air filter and the carburator.Then remove the gas tank cap and the fuel filter from inside of gas tank,at the end of fuel line.Take off the fuel line from the hole of the gas tank(at the top),replace the fuel line,put all back together and start the engine.

SOURCE: chainsaw gas/oil mix ratio

I have two Stihls that are well over 20 years old. I use the factory recommended mixture, 1 part 2 cycle Stihl oil to regular gas. (1:50)

That is still what the factory recommends. Don't use a cheap 2 cycle oil, go to a Stihl store and buy their 2 cycle oil in the orange plastic bottle.

SOURCE: ryobi gas chainsaw- chainsaw brake is stuck on. How do I release

You just have to pull the lever back, like it was on the saw, until it clicks/unlocks. It may be hard to do, but thats what has to be done.

SOURCE: i have a stihl 024 av chainsaw. the case hinges

Are you asking about the PVC carrying case? Isn't it possible to mount a couple of small hinges using countersunk screws from inside the case to lock washers and nuts outside the case. Use a file to remove any threads extending beyond the nuts so your leg can't get snagged. It might even be worth adding a couple of countersunk flat washers to the inside of the case. HTH

Stihl saw 026 runs 5-10 min won't stay running and backfires


5 to 10 minutes is a long time and the 026 is a fairly old saw. If it is running 5 to 10 minutes and not 5 to 10 seconds, you probably just have a worn engine. Clean the saw inside very thououghlr and try Amoco white gas. You should be able to reduct the heating and get more run time. A carb rebuild might also help some but in hot weather it is not unusual for chain saws to vapor lock.
