Ouch- that's not common on the 084. Were any of the base screws loose?

Wow.

Jacob J. asked what I would have asked. A loose base bolt and/or a bad casting could have surely been the cause. Some times paper gaskets will pack down from lots of compression.

@Gypo Logger posted a picture of his beloved 346 that met the same end. I believe he had 8+ years on that saw.

Did it wipe your piston out?

Nope. It was running and running well. All screws were tight. Piston is unmarked.


Sent from my iStihl.

Back in the day I had a Stihl 050AV do that, we milled alot with that saw though, it was VERY well used.
I got a cylinder from JJ, and all set. Piston was not hurt.

Send it to Shaun and he will fix it proper for you. Re-weld and mill the bottom. Guaranteed to look and work great. Srcarr52 on AS. Not sure if he's here yet. Or PM me and I'll send back his cell number.

thanks for the offer but i can welderup too.
here is another 084 that had the top corner broken off.


end result.
