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.

Does the saw have a lot of hours on it ? What is the fuel mix you are using, Stihl recommend 40:1
You may need a CARB KIT.

I need a fuel hose diagram for a stihl model 028 wb chain saw.


Stihl IPLs (exploded parts list) are propriatary, You can request one here: The IPL (exploded parts list) for your saw is the only detail for fuel line routing and it is sketchy at best; components are listed but on multiple illustrations.

  • The hose in the tank with the filter on the free end connects directly to the carburetor input connection.
  • If the saw is equipped with a primer bulb, an output line from the carburetor connects to the suction side of the primer (once the bulb is collapsed it draws fuel from the tank through the carburetor to refill as it inflates).
  • The pressure side of the primer returns displaced fuel to the tank as it is depressed.
Take lots of notes and a few digital photographs to help with reassembly. HTH
