    I recommend you contact Stihl here:

    Explain your problem and ask for an IPL (exploded parts list. Stihl calls their IPLs proprietary, they are not available on line. HTH


    I'm a little perplexed. I asked for clarification of your problem and got flamed. The answer that doesn't even address your problem gets rewarded? Your rating is the only payment we get for helping you.

Hello bigherm,first remove the top cover,remove air filter and 2 nuts holding filter cover depending on where link came off ,make sure you connect it to carb first.then grab it with a pair of needle nose pliers and install the rear or "u" shaped part into trigger making sure fuel lines aren't in the way

i work on chainsaws for a living and hope this helps.

Check your carburetor. You probably have a bad one and will need to replace it.
