    Stihl Specs Discrepancy for Ign Module to Flywheel

    I've got an 86, not an 85, but if I'm following you correctly, you must be thinking they've got to be pretty close. However, the plug specification for the 85 and 86 are different as well as base idle, in addition to the gap that brought me here...

    Stihl Specs Discrepancy for Ign Module to Flywheel

    It's confusing for sure. I think I'm going to go with .20 to .25mm and call it a day. I was able to slightly bend some old brass feeler gauges to sort of mimic the curve of the flywheel and avoid the magnetism to get a good feel for the .25mm setting. The blower ran great upon starting, but...

    Stihl Specs Discrepancy for Ign Module to Flywheel

    Hey everyone! I've got a Stihl BG 86 blower that I just purchased and runs like crap. Going through all the things it could be, I've settled on the ignition module and flywheel, but my problem is with the CORRECT SPECIFICATION for the gap. The Stihl software that you folks were kind enough to...

    FOUND: Stihl 028AV Chain Break Lever Part #: 11181625005/1118-162-5005

    Actually, mine was bent (likely from the saw being dropped at some point). I took it off, put it in the vise, and tried to gently straighten it. The lever just snapped in half, like it was made of some sort of cast metal, not steel. It was very strange to me that it snapped like that...

    FOUND!!!: Stihl 028AV Super Chain Break Lever, Stihl Part #: 11181625005 / 1118-162-5005

    UPDATE: I did find the part and it arrived yesterday. The part is installed and works as it should, even though it's ever so slightly different than the original (update/upgrade before production ceased is my guess). Here are photos of the old, broken part shown below the new part that just...

    FOUND!!!: Stihl 028AV Super Chain Break Lever, Stihl Part #: 11181625005 / 1118-162-5005

    I think I found the part (NEW) for $7.25 in Pennsylvania. The order is supposed to process and ship Monday, so I'll wait 'til I get a confirmation of shipment before updating my threads here. Fingers crossed!

    Thanks Mark! I've seen those - pretty pricey for the one little part I need. What do you think...

    Thanks Mark! I've seen those - pretty pricey for the one little part I need. What do you think my chances are of being able to successfully MIG weld the one of mine that snapped in half? S

    028 Workshop Manual

    That did it StarTech! Thank you much! I'm cleaning up my 028 and wasn't sure what sort of lube to use on the drive gears for the oil pump. There was an old, hard residue on the gears, but I wasn't sure if that was old bar oil that had gotten in there, or if it was general purpose grease to...
