Anyone rebuild old stihl chainsaws????
I have acquired an old Stihl 045 power head that I know needs a rebuild to work. I'd like to have it rebuilt to use as an extra saw and to remind the family of what our father's and grandfathers had for power equipment.
I'm located in Searcy but am willing to travel to have it rebuilt. I have the whole power head intact as far as that goes only a few C clips ( one on the throttle ) and bolts ( on the pull start cover )are missing that I can see. I've cleaned most of the dirt and oil off the outside

Try Kirkendoll Equipment, 501-745-06167. Terry Kirkendoll is the owner/mechanic and is a Stihl dealer. He's a chainsaw and small engine guy, just like his father before him was, in the same shop. He's about 1/2 way between Shirley and Clinton on HWY 9. He's a good friend of mine and a great small engine mechanic.

You could do it yourself. Everyone has a plumbus in their home. First you take the dingle bop and you smooth it out with a bunch of schleem. The schleem is then...repurposed for later batches.
You take the dingle bop and you push it through the grumbo, where the fleeb is rubbed against it. It's important that the fleeb is rubbed, becasue the fleeb has all the fleeb juice.
Then, a schlami shows up, and he rubs it...and spits on it.
You cut the fleeb. There's several hizzards in the way.
The blamfs rub against the chumbles, and the...plubis, and grumbo are shaved away.
That leaves you with...a regular old plumbus. Good luck with that. Your set and ready to go. It will saw as good as new.

A good small engine and chainsaw guy is a treasure rarely found these days.

Yes they are. I buy all my chainsaw, weed eater and Stihl stuff from him, not just because he's a friend of mine, but because I want him to stay in business. I use him for Stihl stuff and I use the local John Deere dealership for tractor and lawn mower stuff because they are 2 1/2 miles from my farm. I will not buy this kind of equipment from big box stores. I want it serviced where I buy it.

:hesaid: I believe in shopping stuff like that local. Even though the small engine folks around here are not real good IMO I stick with them for new stuff because when you need them a big box store just leaves you holding an empty sack.
