c5rulz's Stihl 028 Super

I just got done building a Stihl 028 Super for c5rulz. He bought the saw new 20+ years ago and we freshened it up with new A/V mounts, crank seals, impulse line, fuel line, fuel filter, carb rebuild, starter rope, fuel & oil caps, piston & rings and topped it off with a woods port. For those that don't know what that means, that means I ported the cylinder.

We did several tests videos with it before and after. Without going into to much detail about the different tests, this video shows how c5rulz would be use to cutting with a brand new out of the box Stihl RMC .325 chain:

As you can see it was a good running saw..

This is how it cuts now after the above mentioned work:

And another of it being worked:

The saw will be in the mail tomorrow and you will have it later in the week. I hope you enjoy it and most of all STAY SAFE!

Who else out there runs stihl 028's? Thinking about hopping up a 028AV. We know how the 028 super goes, like to hear from those with stock 028"s.

I run an old 028 WB. I bought it used in 97 and have used it a bunch. I upgraded to electronic ignition a few years ago and ran the sprocket down to the nub. I've probably put more $$ into it then I should, but my kids think it is cool because it says "Made in West Germany" on the side. It has been a good firewood/cleanup saw.


It is in there somewhere along with my brother's MS361.

You guys in Md got a lot of weather in the past few years, I'm sure that saw has got a workout. You know you're missing the clip and washer on your clutch drum? You prolly took it off for the picture.

I bet that saw could use a rebuild. Are you planning on going through it?
I was taking it apart. Got a NOS to replace it. No plans to rebuild, I just keep the chain sharp, oil filled, mix in the tank and run it. When cold it starts on one pull every time, just never know if it is going to be the third or fourth one! :)

c5rulz, that happened last February. Thunderstorm came through two large pines snapped about 15 ft up and took down a smaller pine between them. It could have been worse, but my parts jeep , a 1980 v8 CJ7 with my good hard top on it for storage, helped hold up the trees. :(

Wow, $ucks to be a jeep.:dunno: Talk about wrong place wrong time.:banghead3
It could have been worse, I usually park my silver F150 in the spot next to the CJ.
