      Yes, the seal presses into the case. It doesn’t have the grooved bearing.
      I was hoping you’d say you’ve come across a few undersized seals so I could happily order Stihl seals!
      Thank you,
      Greg

      Hello Mastermind,
      I’ve read, in a few posts, that you’ve used Farmertec crank seals.
      I’m working on a 038 and the larger Farmertec seal is not tight/sealing to the cases.
      I don’t have the original seal to measure.

      Have you come across Farmertec seals that are slightly undersized?

      Or, would you know the bore diameter on the cases, where the seal presses in, on a 038?

      Thank you,
      Greg

        I don't know if I've use the Farmertec seals. I've used aftermarket seals and haven't had any issues with them. Hyway branded stuff mostly I believe.

        On the 038....the seal doesn't fit into the bearing rather than the case?

      On a 201 tcm will removing that mini hoop in line with the main jet from plastic carb devider screw things up? Also have you tried squaring the intake v on the piston for a sharper fuel hit? Its super snappy but I feel it could have a little more torque .03 off base and band 105 125 83 begin v to 75 fuel. Sorry to bother you but Posted a build thread but got no feedback.

      Hello sir, just getting into my second 201t and I was wondering if the c domed piston would work on an flathead 201 with some angulated chamber cutting? Seems like a potential for a lot more compression?

        Should be able to do that.

      Do you have a modified carburetor for a 3120. I don't want the epa one. I heard you might have one.

      I have a 3120 with a 272 coil, and Two 3/4" exhaust outlets. when its 80+ degrees out, after running it acts like its leaning out, turned the idle screw in and the low side out. Doesnt seem make any difference. I am thinking due to the increased exhaust flow ( no more sniffle snorkle) there is more induction, and needs more fuel. I would appreciate your thoughts on the subject.

        A year later, and the same issue, I have to nurse the throttle to keep it going. I have spare jets and went up and down a few sizes, make no difference. It seems as if it starves for fuel at idle and dies out. Tuning the low side has little effect. I dont have a lathe etc. Would it be possible to send you my carb for that modification, and what would you charge for it? This changing jets is getting old.

        If you have to nurse the throttle to keep it going, there are other problems besides jet sizes.

        I was observing that perspective as well.. tweaking the low jet doesnt seem to help.. its only starving for fuel when not WOT. If the saw is WOT its happy. New coil, new plug. new PTO seal. And impulse channel is clear.

      Mr R, what's procedure to reset computer on a ms 261m. Starts fine, runs fine but mine all sudden started very high idle after starting hitting throttle. I started on choke for 90/100 seconds but its still running away. Its very dangerous to operate as is
      1. Mastermind
        Mastermind
        The sounds more like a sticking fast idle. A reset won't help that. Take the cover and filter off and look it over.

      Hey Randy. My name is Ryan Ratkowski. I might be purchasing a saw from Will who is a friend of yours.
      I'm looking at picking up his ms462c. I was hoping you would be willing to port the saw for me as Will thought you might be willing to port it knowing that it is a well taken care of.
      Please let me know if this would work for you and thank you for your time it is much appreciated.
