I'm sure you're right Joe. I don't seem to be able to figure out why myself though, but I'll hopefully know a little more soon. Thanks for your help.

Well I finally got an answer to my problems today! The thing has been in the shop for 6 weeks now and I've been a little pithed to not hear anything despite a couple calls. I do trust this shop and I'm glad I did now. Turns out there was a bad crank bearing. This would explain it dying at WOT, as well as why nothing else worked. Even better, they submitted it to Stihl and they are covering it despite the machine being two years old and long out of warranty. Not happy to wait so long but happy with the outcome. I almost questioned Stihl over this but they definitely made up for it. ;D

Well that would make sense because a sloppy crank bearing would wipe out the seal .Which BTW is the cause of many Stihl Ms 200T's dying on the vine .

What doesn't make sense is a failure for no older than what it is .

I agree, it makes no sense to me either. I didn't get close to tearing it down that far, wouldn't have even considered a seal or bearing. Thing can't have 20 hrs on it. Either way I am happy that Stihl is making it right. I'll be keeping that in mind on my 200t too, wasn't any slop when it was tore down couple months ago. BTW Al, you were right about them 200s, sweet little saws. Easy to see why they're so popular. Thanks all that helped me along with this undertaking.

I suppose one slips through cracks now and again .Stihl does make a quality product though .I'm sure it shocked them about as much as you to see a premature bearing failure .

So I left my blower in the shop over the winter, don't have much use for it through the winter months, plus I actually sort of forgot about it with busy weeks. Anyway, I talked to the shop couple days ago, turns out not only were the crank bearings shot buy so is the crank. She was spinning in a nice oblong pattern. That would explain the impeller side bolt coming off when cranking. They sort of forgot about it too it sounds like, but I didn't pry either so I guess no big deal. Sounds like I may get either a new unit or (preferably) credit to trade up for another model.
