    Visual difference between Farmertec and Stihl trigger parts. I saw a post asking about the quality of the latest kits. Well, I bought a clone MS-660 from someone on E-Bay. Towards the end of the two year square deal warranty it started to get very hard to start and run, so much so, I could only start it by holding the trigger down with a bungie cord to start it. Always popped off choke. The seller was no longer on E-Bay so I could not contact him.

    I ended up replacing these trigger parts, going by the board recommendations and from looking at the schematic, and seeing what looked low quality to me.

    OEM STIHL parts:
    1122-182-0902 switch shaft (flexes less then the aftermarket from Farmertec)
    1122-182-1502 throttle rod
    1117-182-4500 torsion spring
    1117-182-0805 trigger interlock

    Since a picture speaks a 1,000 words, here are some pictures I created for a short video:

    Farmertec has never sent me my $12 credit for the mis-drilled Husky 385 piton I posted about here, which was so sad it was comical, so, naturally I have not ordered any more parts from them.

    Two positive notes: All my orders from

    https://www.hlsproparts.com/

    have been awesome so I even order my fuel lines and filters from them instead of e-bay, amazon, lowes, and such. I ordered a just in case full rubber kit for the 660 in case I need something stupid.

    Other positive note, it was a beautiful day at the county dump when I was getting my free compost. :-D

    Big difference there, I can see that having problems. On mine, the OEM was much stiffer. I think over time the repro parts suffer from cheap plastic that just gives up.
