[Return to Topics]

Hi, I need some help with this chain saw a Stihl 070 unit. It is pretty old but is unused and is like brand new. It starts easily when cold after hard use or high speed for three to four minutes the machine refuses to start. The piston rings on the unit are new.
Please help. The Stihl buffons are incompetent and cannot help. I am in India and do not have the required service mannuals.
Somebody pls help.

Do you honestly need help with a Chain saw

Or are you here just gathering email adresses to sale to spammers. I mean after all the IP that you posted from is linked to one of the worst spam assed companies that ever existed.

Chain saw problem, Sure beats the tatic of the "Work at home for $2.50 an hour" scam.

No this is not for spam mail, what ever that means. I have replaced the plug, cleaned the air filter,adjusted the carburetor,cleaned the bottom filter on the tillotson carburetor. I am an auto technician by proffesion so all related issues like a blown seal have also been checked. This has really got me stumped. Only have never worked on a carburetor which is on the saw. Worry is if I open the carb I would need a new seal and diaphram kit which is not available here. Does anyone out there have a service mannual from Stihl?? Would probably help.
Thanks to all who have tried to help. And yes there are a lot of trees in India.

I thought that in the good old U.S.A. a person was presumed innocent until proven guilty.

Try the fuel filter, located inside the gas tank. Remove and try to blow air through it should freely take air, if not replace it, only a couple bucks. Good luck.

Rick, let us know if your Spam count goes up within the next couple of months. Les may have a point here, especially now that the whole world has your address.

Very good advice about the fuel filter. I also have a very old chain saw of the same make. It is a Farm Boss model. It had the same indications as yours and a new fuel filter fixed it right up. You may want to clean the air filter also. If it just came from the dealer's shop, I would suspect any thing they could have done to be the cause of the problem too.

Didn't know they had trees in India.
