  • The fuel mixture is poured into the tank;
  • Chain oil is poured into the tank;
  • The reliability of the fastener tension is checked;
  • According to the instructions, the saw is started;
  • The carburetor is adjusted at idle with the corresponding screw (the chain does not have to move)

Hello, and when you turned out the candle, did you try it? Is there a spark? It happens that there is a spark and everything seems to be in order, but the saw still Does not start. I really had almost the same situation on another brand. It turned out to compress comments. I changed the oil seals and it seems to be still working (for the second year already). There is also a problem. Filters. Have you changed them? In general, a bunch, each time different answers, so that you DO NOT bother for a long time, try the service, if it is too expensive, then.

Leakage violation

But if you notice that oil is flowing into the circuit, the cause of the malfunction may be a leak in the connections between the oil tank hose and the oil pump. Disassemble the tool to fix the problem. If the hose is damaged, it is recommended to replace it. Sometimes it is sealed with a special compound. First, the surface must be degreased and rinsed. Sometimes the oil filter breaks, in some cases it gets clogged. In this case, oil may also leak. In this case, the filter is checked, cleaned or replaced with a new one.

Removing the flywheel

The flywheel of the Stihl 180 chainsaw is twisted with great effort, therefore, to remove it, you will need a head with a metal knob. The nut holding the flywheel is unscrewed by the head by 13.

To block the crankshaft from turning, you need to Unscrew the spark plug and install the piston stopper through the spark plug hole, if it is not there, you can use the old starter cord, with knots imposed on it and immersed in the cylinder through the spark plug hole.

It is strictly forbidden to keep the flywheel from turning by installing a power screwdriver and other tools between its ribs and the body of a power screwdriver, with this method of blocking from turning, the flywheel blades are NOT able to withstand the load and break off.

After the piston is locked in the cylinder, you can unscrew the flywheel nut. The thread in the nuts is common, so you need to turn to the left. I loosened the nut, it is not necessary to remove it to the end, it is enough to Unscrew it until its upper edge is equal to the tip of the shaft, after which a soft metal drift is installed on the nut and a sharp blow is made on it. Thus, the flywheel from a sharp impact jumps off the shaft and can be easily removed without the help of additional tools.

Carburetor, muffler and ignition coil

To remove the carburetor, it is necessary to have a head 8 and an extension, with which it is convenient to unscrew the nuts securing the carburetor and air filter. Before dismantling the carburetor, it is necessary to disconnect the ignition wire and the choke rod from the engine control lever and remove the lever, only then the air filter and carburetor are removed.

The Stihl 180 muffler is fastened with two nuts, by unscrewing which you need to pull it towards you, it can be easily removed.

The coil is mounted on two screws, to remove you just need to unscrew them.
