Well, i get the stupid award for today. My left side 009 that I bought off ebay arrived. So I figured I would install it rather than wait on the new triggers I ordered. LOL, I went to take it apart.... and i have an 011. I'm not sure where I got the idea that I had a 009. Now I have to find a trigger for it. Now that i've spent $60+

And for a side note of being stupid!
Was steaming the skid steer with my large diesel fired pressure / steamer. Had it on my forklift and needed just a few feet so i just backed the forklift up a few feet. Well, the water hose hooked to the shop was only so long! It snatched that running/burning/super hot steamer off the forks flipping it over on the concrete. Snapped the burner off (still running)! Not sure if you have ever messed with one but this 300 pound steam bomb is now ready to come apart building pressure with no water source to cool it. Bad day!
Them steam genny a bad sucker ...

I happened up to a dozer shop one day ... as I rounded the corner to the shop ... I saw an ambulance out front ... lights flashing.... turns out a guy was steaming a dozer and the genny exploded ... he spent the next three weeks in the hospital ... several surgeries to dig pieces of steel out of his back ...

lol hate that ! If i would have read this earlier ..... i went to the lawnmower junkyard today to get a wheel arm for a 3 wheel rider i bought. While i was there i picked up a 011 out of a pile of saws that had all plastic/trigger ect but locked up. He would have sold it to me for 20bucks i would guess. I normaly just buy stuff like that but today i just sat it back down and forgot to pick it up before i left. I might go back next week. The reason i set the saw down was i saw a orig 1952 6hp horzonal craftmans lawn tractor. Thing was tiny, looked good, orig paint, and i want it! He was holding for a guy until monday but said if he didn't buy it i could. I'm a sucker for cool old stuff.

Question for you guy's that have a stihl 011,

Under the air filter where the fuel tank vent is, is there a hose coming off the vent to the carb.? Mine does not have one but I have saw pics online that shows this. Mine is the white and orange saw, I assume that is a newer version of the solid orange saw.

Never mind, after checking further I have concluded that mine has been broken off, might explain some of the running issues I have had. Runs great on little stuff but when I really work it on bigger stuff it just wont run right. Bogs down after a while and wont run at all.

Guess I'll try to jb weld something onto it and see if that helps. Wish I had known this before putting a new drive sprocket & chain on it, not to mention the new carb. I ordered for it. That would have went a good ways on a new one.

I used it some this weekend, pulling the cable rather than a trigger. I have not used it often, over the years, so I did not recall that it was overheating? May be time to retire it

if a 2cycle is overheating, then it is either covered in dirt and trash, or the mixture is lean, or the fuel is not mixed correctly.

Check to make sure you have the fuel/oil mixed correctly. If you do, then you probably need to retune the carb so that enough fuel is flowing to lube and cool the engine correctly. Make sure all the baffles are on, clean and clear.

If you retire it I could always use a parts saw being it's a 011, just saying.

If the trigger is fairly simple it would be easy to hog one out of a piece of 1/2 thick alum plate. I made a trigger for a 1/2" air impact wrench for my neighbor. I did all the hogging on the milling machine and then rounded off the edges where needed with a file. Post a pic of the trigger.

Speaking of the carb, I noticed in the owners manual it say's to run the screws in all the way and back them out 1-1/2 turns. Now reading the repair manual it say's to run them in all the way and back them out 1 turn. Anyone know why there's a discrepancy and which is right? Again both manuals are for the 009,010,011 saws.
