Same principle as Facebook. If you like the vid, it shows up on your page and other people will see it.

Can I go all ebert on your ass and give it two thumbs up? :D

As an honest question.......... how is it worthwhile to go this deep to save a 290 (or any similar saw) ? I would assume you need to get something for shop time, plus cover parts.

Granted I'm speculating, but this has to be a couple / three hundred dollar repair around here all day long.

Informative as always though.

Most shops wouldn't consider it worth while. In this case, the saw itself was free and I had already been paid $15 to diagnose the issue. If there would have been anything else wrong it would have gone into the parts bucket.

Bearing $8 retail
Seals $28 retail
1.5 hour labor $90
Says Stihl on the side, sold in two days for $200

I can totally rebuild one of these easily inside 1.5 hours. Clean with just a Bailey's long block 40 minutes.
