SOURCE: Were can I get a free Parts manual for a TS400

The Stihl website has the manuals available for free. You can copy the link I've provided for you and download or print out a copy for your use.

I recommend creating a computer file folder to put all the electronic copies of user manuals, etc. in, to make it easier to find, should you need another copy in the future. I've done this with all my home appliances, tools, and lawn equipment. It comes in handy as these items get old since the manuals might not always be available online in the future.

If you need further assistance with getting replacement/repair parts for your Stihl cut off saw, just fill out their customer service form and they'll be back in touch pretty quickly!

SOURCE: removing flywheel and clutch assembly ms 250 stihl

You need a piston stop, watch part of this to explain use:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cdqkIuVNUQc
Make one with starter cord or rope:
I suggest a length of starter cord or nylon rope be used instead of the piston stop (retain 6" ± so you can remove it). Make sure the piston is near the top of the cylinder before feeding the cord or it can fall through the exhaust port and damage the piston as it rises. HTH

Testimonial: "Thanks for your help, I got the clutch assembly off with the rope as a cylinder stop. But the flywheel is going to require a puller i think."

SOURCE: how do I wind a stihl ts400 pull cord

1) remove the recoil housing
**NOTE: normally you DO NOT need to remove the rotor pulley or spring to replace the rope. This is the area that causes so many guys a lot of extra trouble

2) locate the string that is left and the hole it is threaded thru

3) determine how much string has broken off of the rope that came out

Note: if more than 1 inch is left, then the rope needs to be replaced

4) after rope is obtained, make sure both ends are melted to a point for easier threading thru handle and rope rotor

5) install the rope (with the handle installed on one end) thru the recoil housing and towards the rope rotor.

6) with the rotor free of tension, route the rope from the groove toward center and up thru the hole. Tie a knot in the end of the rope, leaving a 3/8" tail free.

7) wind the rotor in the direction of what the rope would pull (this will tighten the spring) until the spring is completely wound. remove 1/2 to 1 revolution, and then allow rope to wind onto the rotor until all rope is wound.

8) Pull the rope several times to position rope properly into rotor.
*note : there should be NO droop in the handle after released
If droop is evident, wind the rotor and rope 1 revolution tighter so there is no droop of handle when released

9) when unit is functioning proplerly, re-install housing onto unit

Hi, my Stihl ts 400 blade runs at idle.I have tried adjusting the idle down as far as I can but it still turns.


seems that ur clutch is sticking.take recoil caseing of and check by turning blade by hand,if you feel the engine turning over,then your clutch drum is sticking,be sure to remove ur spark plug cap! it will be the bearing at the rear of the clutch drum,maybe a little oil and a few turns will help it free itself.hope this helps.

Hi, My Stihl TS400 with 14"


Racing on a 2 cycle engine is usually a sign of a lean condition. It could be caused by a few different things including a bad crank seal or a torn intake manifold as some are made out of rubber. I would remove the cutter arm then pull the muffler to inspect the cylinder and piston. If they are scored it will be a costly repair.

Wiring diagram for a stihl saw ST400


There is no diagram. it is a simple system the coil for the plug has a kill wire that runs up to the thumb switch.
page 31 of the service manual shows the connectors.
Make sure the wires are not rubbed through.

Need to know belt size fo the stihl ts400 concrete cutoff saw


You should go to a Stihl dealer and ask for the belt for a TS 400 Cut Off Saw. The belt is ribbed, you should only put on a Stihl part to replace the belt and make sure the belt is under the correct tension. When you go to the Stihl dealer you can ask them to show you how to make sure the belt is under the correct amount of tension.

Does the TS400 need engine oil apart from 2 stroke mixture


Hello. No, the oil mix is designed to do all that is necessary. Stihl 50:1 two stroke engine oil or equivalent is recommended for proper operation, cheap oil does not have the additives needed too keep rings free and inhibit carbon build-up. Also do not use BIA or TCW rated oils, or any others with duel purpose ratings.

Thank you
