    How can you spray the crank seals while the engine is running? I mean, you need the flywheel on to start the engine.

    Mtronic - which model, which reset procedure?

    Ah, going thru the Stihl technical manual now, it appears that the diaphragm in my carb was a bit too "stiff". My experience with other diaphragms (in older small engines, tecumseh, briggs) is they are very pliable. The one in this saw was very very thin and "snappy", not rubber-like at all...

    Rope bridge, finally. Now what knot?

    Finally turned my trusty old Cougar into a rope bridge saddle. 1/2" Samson Arbormaster in a pair of RE TriRig paws. I'm using double-overhands on either side now. What knots does everyone here like?

    double alpine butterfly name?

    Also a perfect 3-leg spider rig point without hardware. I like this, a lot. Are you sure it won't spill when pulled in any of the 6 directions? (main line up/down, left up/down, and right up/down)

    Mtronic - which model, which reset procedure?

    pretty much since I got it. I've tried to run it several times since I bought it and just get frustrated with how it runs. It won't start when it's hot, and will often die at idle.

    Mtronic - which model, which reset procedure?

    Had another Stihl shop take a look at it, they are saying cylinder is scored. I'm looking at aftermarket replacement options, preferably ones that come pre-tuned or ported. Any suggestions?

    Best tree inventory software?

    Google search found this: https://arborprousa.com Excel is my inventory go-to, but we're talking really small scale stuff, like keeping track of my saws, chains, bars, ropes etc.

    Mtronic - which model, which reset procedure?

    I called Stihl and they confirmed my 2016 362C is 90 second reset procedure. They based this on serial number. And they said that they didn't put the new coils in the 362 until 2017.

    Do we know the overall dimensions of these new biners? I'd be interested in the swivel eye.
