    Finally got time to cut up the monster oak tree that Hurricane Irene pushed over in 2012. Need to get it done before the ticks and chiggers come out. Love my Stihl tools and MF tractor!

    This video is my philosophy on problem solving and then a dry run of my tooling for pulling a crank through bearings at room temp. So far so good!

    The next video will be me actually putting case halves together with the tool.

    Moral of the story, get the m10x1.0 actual tap and don't overbore the hole when you are preparing for the tap. m12x1.0 LEFT HAND for the pto side. otherwise this works great!

    Husqvarna 394xp 395xp Clutch cover rebuild

    Please wear appropriate protective equipment when working with springs! Safety glasses is a must!


    Up today we have a broken Husqvarna 394xp clutch cover. The replacement cover is for the 394xp and is made by Hyway.

    If anyone has better information than me about these covers please make a comment below.

    I think there IS a different clutch cover for the 395xp ...oem part #503720801. Only the spring cover is slightly different. I do not think the two are compatible. BUT, if you buy a whole clutch cover either will work for either saw.

    Here is the link to the whole clutch / brake

    Huztl / Stihl MS660 066 Seals install - trick with a coke can

    Here is the coke can trick and how to install crank seals for a stihl ms660 or the like.

    It works for other saws as well that have a "lip" on the pto side of the crank that is touchy for the seal to get over without help. No need on the flywheel side because of the taper... that alone is enough to ease the seal on without risking inverting the rubber.

    Because I can do this, I really don't like assembling a case with the seals pre-installed. I prefer to pop out whatever seals that came with the saw and then re-install them myself.

    Here is a link to the HL Supply ms660 gasket kit:
