stihl model ??
« on: April 04, 2012, 08:53:59 PM »
Hi i'm trying to get some info on a saw i'v had about eighteen years and it wasnt new then. I spent hours trying to get the model from varrious websites but could only narrow it to four models they are 041av,050av,075av,076av. the serial number is 9318613 and a number on the underside of the air filter cover is 911111410502. the bed is apx. 30 in.
I hav'nt used this saw for ten years as i now have a 023 but am looking to get some history on this beast.
 any help would be great.

Welcome to the forum
How about a picture of the "beast" ?

Looks like you guys were right smiley_thumbsup(new i was in the right place)
anyway after looking back through lots of posts there was a link to a site with details and some pics. I'm now sure its a 075AV the engine has decompressor valve and the air filter is nylon.It also has a slide lever on one side which if my memory serves me well  is for chain oil +/-.
 I hav'nt tried to run the beast yet as i need to drain fuel , replace plug and fit new filter ect ect but will let you know how i get on.

Hav'nt managed to get the beast going yet. plenty of compresion plenty of fuel reaching plug. Spark could be stronger i think.
Is there a way of telling if spark is good enough. i'm not to bad with spanners but electrics are not my thing.
 Thanks for the help so far.

Sounds like you have it flooded, pull the plug out, get a match or lighter, pull the starter rope real slow, holding a match in or right by the spark plug hole. It will go woofff, do this until its cleaned out, put the plug back in, should fire the first pull.

Pulled the plug out and cleared cylinder a few times and got nowhere, it gives the odd splutter but thats all.
 got the carb of stripped down and covered in cleaner for the night,lookes like a carb kit is next if i can find one to fit.Its a walbro with numbers WS1 on one side 1-76 on the other and 63379  48 on another, can anyone tell which numbers to use when looking for the carb kit.

Given the saws age, I would give the carb a good cleaning and a fresh rebuild kit to start with. Next I would change the fuel line and filter. The older black rubber (buna) is not very ethanol friendly and will turn gooey and are prone to collapse.
If youre struggling with weak spark, check plug gap and/or replace plug. You may need to also file/sand the points. Good luck.

 All the rubber lines and intake boot should be looked at, they just get old and crack and they cant suck fuel when they leak air. That saw looks exactly like my old 076. Bout the only thing I've ever replaced on those carbs is the diapram, you can tell by looking at it if it's all stretched out

Fuel lines and filter all good, just put a full kit on the carb as diaphrams did'nt look to good also new plug - - - still no joy.
 lots of fuel getting to plug.
 Just took of the coil? to check the gap beetween it an flywheel and noticed it has a tie wrap round the HT lead which was done before i had it and that's18 years so maybe the fault is electrical after all.
 Could anyone tell me where the two thin cables that go from coil into the main caseing go to and if there is something in there that need checking.

 As i said in a previous post i still think the spark is week.

I don.nt realy know what i'm talking about whith regard to  models but some guy on the net said the only differance between the 075 & and 076 is the75 has the oil filler on the top and 076 it's on the side

I can't remember the wires you're speaking of could they be for the kill switch maybe? I'm pretty sure my 076 had a top oil filler. That saw was a brute for power It was a great saw for cuttin old growth white oak. But as I recall I was always working on it so I traded it off. I know you said you had good compression but if you're not sure pull off the muffler and look at the piston wall for scoring, that's a killer. Fun ain't it? Markd

Kill switch wire runs from top of coil under the handle to the switch.
 It's at least ten years when this was last used but never missed a beat.
 I stopped useing the "beast"when i was offered a clean 023 which as you know is a lot smaller and the "beast" has been under the bench all these years.
 It's a great project and i'm looking forward to one day soon awakening "The Beast" (with help from you guys of coarse). 8)

I've got an 075 I picked up recently, an old Weyco company saw.  Mine needs a carb kit and a spark plug lead. If your spark is weak, you may need a lead as well, you can unscrew the lead from the coil and put a new one on. The 075 can pull up to a 50" bar.

Thanks for that Mad Murdock, I will get a new plug lead.It looks like i will have to take the flywheel off to see where the two wires that come from the coil and go behind the flywheel end up.  If theres a part that they connect to it may be at fault. what will i find behind there?.
 Regarding the carb kit i fitted the old diaphram had a groove in the steel centre part but the new one's steel centre was shorter and did not have a groove, all other bits were the same is this ok?? ???

I haven't got to kitting my carb yet, so not having seen it, I can't offer any useful info on that question. I have had my tank/side cover off, and it is easy to access all the electrical with that off.

A special puller was available to screw into the flywheel to pop it loose. Pretty hard to do without it.
