Cracked oil tank MS311
« on: January 14, 2018, 09:04:48 AM »
Cutting firewood the other week , -30C the chain grabbed a snipe and threw it against oil tank now oil tank seems to have a leak right where it seems that the composites are molded  together . Found a new one on EBay looks like a challenge to change . Anyone else had this issue I guess this is what I get for not coughing up the extra 300 for professional saw .

It will be very time consuming to change chassis/crankcase. Every part has to come off and re-installed on new chassis. And the expense of a new chassis.
I'd look for a plastic repair method...plastic weld, plastic epoxy, heat, whatever. Search web for chainsaw plastic repair.

I think I would just let it leak. Store it bar up or whatever.

I dont know of after market source and new housing is about 125 bucks plus its an extensive job as doug said. Can be plastic welded but you have find a person with plastic welder. JB weld makes a two part plastic menter in a syringe type applicator that work half way good if its clean ans scuffed up.
