Dang stihls 🤣

I know right, the fact it still ran & idled, just wouldn't rev up, speaks volumes.

Huskyvarnie would of shat parts out the bottom of the case, and seized tight, rending it nothing but scrap metal.

Dis' ole German will live to fight another day, with a few parts.

Wow! Not was I was expecting to see when this thread started. I was thinking throttle plate wasn’t moving for some reason lol. I’m shocked it didn’t wipe out the cylinder.
When I took the exhaust off and saw that mess I instantly thought it'd of smashed the flange and killed the cylinder .
I've done one before that needed a new case half because of that stupid flange ...
Does anybody know why they don't make them like the 461s and 661s ? Those ones u can replace without buying a new case

So was the filter filthy or what you reckon caused the problem, initially??

Yup very dark . I suspect lack of maintenance . piston was probably worn , abit of abuse and poor oil at a guess
Good deal, being damage in intact I assumed it was….didnt know if that model had any distinct problems…

There's a post on here somewhere that says the models after 2020 ? Are design slightly different to counter this .

Amazing that the bottom end and cylinder had no real damage but that ding in the exhaust port. My fear is all that bashed up aluminum from the piston being in the bearings. I'm betting/hoping you flushed out the case at a minimum.

I was thinking the same thing as I was reading through this thread 🤔
