    Actually Mike, I think more about the friends that helped me than whatever I did when I mess around with this saw.

    Still doing good?
    The 371 has been great he uses it almost daily. 20180928_181721.jpg
    Comp is 155 and hasn't dropped
    Since i built it.
    This is a caber that several have told me can't be run in a ft/huztl cylinder lol
    He only has this saw and a 290 i put a 046 carb on.
    The 290 was loaned out to his friend because it hasn't been started since
    I built the 371 the first time lol

    Ed Zachery, with everything on hand it doesn't take long to get the saw back out in the field cutting again and not a lot of money tied up either. For a firewood saw, this is pretty good medicine. If it were for a logger or a tree guy that's going to run it every day and depend on it to earn their living, I wouldn't recommend. But a firewood guy with a bunch of other saws at his disposal to use, you bet this makes a lot of sense now.

    The saw not only ran good but pulled good too(torque) for its size, starts and idles well and just runs good in general all around.
    The premise for the build was a saw for Nick to hand down to his grandson's. So quality was forefront and it started with quality parts. This didn't mean to throw money at it until something stuck, the best bang for the buck was sought out. Started with a not so good cylinder, so a good used one was procured, thanks Al @drf256 this combined with a Meteor piston helped keep the budget down, as pretty much everything else was new OEM, thanks Dave @Definitive Dave and Dallas @dall .
    The side covers and muffler was sent to Mike @Glock37 for powder coating for durability. Have to say in all honesty here that I was totally impressed with what came back, everything literally looked better than new... no guff.
    I do have to admit here that while machining the last bit off the squish band that the boring bar bit chattered. Seemed it was too square to the band being cut. I could have cleaned this up with another cut, but being as I was right on target I decided to leave it, as it just looks a little odd and not going to hurt performance, rather than cut too far and have bigger problems. #rememberjms Changes were made to the boring bar so as not to occur again, was the first time using it, so was the learning curve I guess.
    The intake had a very deep entrance to the cylinder and was filled with epoxy not only to bring it up, but also to make a more gradual sweep to the opening. This brought the duration back for better "drivability".
    The exhaust was widened to 65% of the bore and the floor stepped. The muffler was opened up but still leaving through a stock screen as it will be heading to a dryer climate than here.
    I'm fairly well pleased with how everything turned out and should make for a great work saw for many, many years to come.

    Looks good Steve, they are nice runners. I'm sure Nick will be happy with this one.


    Dallas's little mofo 036 is impressive. It's one Stihl that I wouldn't mind owning.

    Had a completely stock and original 036 survivor here and just for fun ran it against the modified 036. Nothing scientific here just a rough idea between the two of them.
    Please, don't read too much into it.
