Question about Standard Oregon Chainsaw Chain For Stihl Chainsaw 24" Bar Length 84 Drive Links 3/8 0.05 Gauge Chiesel Chain
NEED THE BEST SITE TO BUY A NEW CHAIN DRIVE UNIT INCLUDING PLASTIC SPROCKETS FOR A 028 WB STIHL. THE SAFETY BAND OF THE SAFETY STOP KICKED IN CREATING SO MUCH HEAT THAT BOTH PLASTIC PLASTIC SPROCKETS MELTED.
ALSO IS THE UNIT JUST PULLED OFF THE SHAFT AFTER THE HOLDING SPRINGS ARE REMOVED?
The model 028 Stihl Chainsaw was in production for many years and the clutch drum sprocket (or chain drive) came in three (3) versions over the years of production.
For several reasons, it is best to take the saw to an authorized Stihl Dealership (Locate your nearest dealership HERE) for production identification, evaluation of cost-effectivness and availability of parts.
Reason 1) The first-generation 028 saw is approaching 30 years old.
Reason 2) Extreme heat caused by a locked chain-brake can damage the engine case and render the saw unfixable (part support is going away due to age).
Reason 3) The shear cost of parts and amount of time it would take for a DIY repair.
Reason 4) The plastic gears you mentioned are the drive system that make the chain's oil pump work. If the plastic is melted, the oil pump is likely to be damaged as well. In most cases the oil pump cover gets damaged ... the list goes on and on.
Genuine Stihl parts are not sold online and aftermarket parts would be a gamble. It's up to you to decide if the cost, time and effort are worth it.
Hope this helps.
