It sounds like the coil is going out. Also there could be some water in the tank and when you are cutting the filter is trying to pick it up and it stalls the engine. If you know your chainsaw well enough you could do the repair yourself, but depending on the age of the unit. It could be under a warranty. Stihl has a 3 year extended warranty that covers the ignition coil. For parts you will need to find a Stihl dealer, you might also ask about them putting on the coil for you. You might see if your unit would be a candidate for a warranty. I've included a link to help you find your nearest Stihl dealer, when you are looking for a dealer I would try to find one that has a Gold Certified Technician. That way if you do not feel that you are able to put the coil on correctly, you will get the best service possible. I hope this helps you out. http://stihldealer.net/locator/

Hello I have a Stihl 066 chainsaw and I am replacing the cylinder what are the torque ratings for the screws?


When installing screws into used components, gently rotate the screw backwards until the threads on the bolt go past the threads already in the component, then start to gently turn the screw in the tightening direction. (the reason is: you do not want to cut new threads, as this will damage and remove the current thread material, and the hole will be too big as a result)
Put a small amount of lubricant (oil, thread oil, ect) and proceed to tighten the screw(bolt).
In this case 11 ft lb. torgue

Will a 56mm cylinder kit fit a 064


http://sawparts.ca/products/stihl-064-066-ms650-ms660-big-bore-cylinder-kit-nikasil-56mm

It seems that YES a 56mm aftermarket cylinder is available for the Stihl 064. Looking at the kit you need to just replace Cylinder, Piston and rings, bearing bush and clips. Worth also replacing the base gasket too.

Does a stihl 064 flywheel fit an old stihl red eye 066


What's a red eye? If the first four numbers from the old flywheel match up with the ones on the replacement, they should swap. I'd suggest just getting the correct one instead of trying to jerry-rig a chainsaw. eBay is a great resource for used parts and they're usually fairly cheap.
