Stihl MS270 Crankshaft Repair?
« on: January 25, 2017, 06:28:03 PM »


Bought this MS 270 on the cheap. Previous owner said he over torqued and sheared the crankshaft on the pull assembly side.
Said it could possibly be tapped out and metal piece could be welded or just replace the whole crankshaft.
As usual I'm out of my skill set/experience on this, hence this thread and cry 4 help!
I do have a best bud who runs a Stihl Shop...and gives me excellent deals.
Just wondering if I could do this myself, besides I see good OEM parts pretty cheap for it.
What do you guys think?
Easy fix...what method?!

I would replace the crank, having the flywheel come off at 9,000 rpm would ruin your day. An option would be look for another dead saw and make one good one, a new crank will be spendey.

Replace it. It's a clamshell design so once you get it torn down the crank is actually very easy to replace.
