Jonsered chainsaw help


CigarGuy

Question

CigarGuy

I just tore down a CS2250s chainsaw and when I was putting it back together I found a part on my bench that I don't know if it belongs to the saw or not. Does anyone know if this is a part that belongs on the saw? I looked over a parts diagram and didn't see it, but I don't want to try running it if it's an important part. It's a little bigger in diameter and thickness than a quarter. Thanks

I've never owned a Jonsered so I have no experience with them but about the only thing that comes to my mind is possibly some kind of washer or spacer behind the drive sprocket??

Thanks, I never took that off. I had a box left over from a light bar I put on my side by side next to the area I was working. When it warms up, I'll go out and see if that part matches anything on the light bar. The part looks new, like it was never installed on anything. Thanks again!

I sent the pictures to a chainsaw repair shop and the guy said not a part from a chainsaw. Case closed! Now to see if my carb rebuild was a success.

I was going to say that it doesn't look dirty enough to come off of a chainsaw! It looks like you may have stumbled onto an ancient Aztec lock washer. 😁

Didn't you have a drawing of the light bar assembly to look back at or look it up on-line if you throw it already?

Hey Leech how ya doing? I'll have to look. Tried starting it today, still doesn't run good. Now, I have to buy a carb kit. I should have done that anyway😀. I'm not too mechanical, so this is kind of a big deal to me. If I had a dollar for every youtube video I watched, I could pay cash for the new saw!! My wife did give me permission to buy a new Stihl👍

Still banging around.  👍

Chainsaws seem to be some of the most finicky motors around. A few years ago I picked up one at a garage sale up by Crosslake, Mn that the guy said I could have for free. (he had a few bucks)  He said that he couldn't get it running so he bought a new one. I brought it back to my camper shed and tore the carb off and cleaned it up. I keep a set of welding tip cleaner wires around for this and found the jet hole clogged solid with saw dust bits. The next weekend I was clearing dead falls off my deer trail with it! 😋

I only run 91 or higher ethanol free gas in mine. Has run like a champ for 27 years (Stihl). Changed the plug maybe 3 times.

I have never used ethanol free gas. Always used 87 octane regular fuel. Bought my Stihl in 1983 after my Husky was stolen and used it professionally for about 4 years working for a logger on the iron range. Still use it today only occasionally to do some cleanup around the place. I mix gas for it whenever I run low and store it in the same old plastic antifreeze container I used when I was logging. There have been times my fuel was multiple years old. Never have a problem with the gas or carb. In fact, I don't recall ever disassembling the carb. Speaking of plugs, it might be worth taking a look at it. I know it has been at least 30 years since I replaced it the last time.

I use ethanol free because the saw may sit for 6 months and ethanol gas has phase separation which causes problems. If the saw got used regular than 87 ethanol is fine.

As I mentioned, I only use mine occasionally. I think I might have used it one day or maybe on two days this past year to do some cleanup. I don't think I even ran a tank full of gas through it.

 

Not trying to degrade those that choose to use nonethanol fuel. It's probably a good idea. Just sharing my experience. I use regular 87 octane in everything including my ATV, boat, ice auger, lawn mowers, garden tiller, chainsaw, and vehicles and have not had any issues.

 

Check that, I did one time. About 10 years ago I pulled my ice auger out in the fall to start it up and run it a little in preparation for the ice fishing season. I couldn't get it started so I poured the old gasoline out of the tank and into a container. There was about 1/2 cup and It smelled like diesel fuel. I mixed up fresh fuel and put it in the auger and it fired up. Was good to go the rest of the winter. 

 

I have been using fuel stabilizer for the past 8 years or so when I winterize my boat and when I put my auger into storage but those are the only ones I use it for. Maybe I've been really lucky but if that's the case then I've been lucky for a few decades.

      I went out to Medicine lake yesterday and there were dead panfish discarded all over the place. I don't know who or why but it was such a waste, plus one little sunny was obviously cut up as bait... And then I found a huge PILE of about 20 fish behind a building. There are signs posted and reminders everywhere, only 5 panfish/crappies per person. This looked deliberate, like a middle finger to authority.
      I was furious and now I'm just sad. I took pictures and I want to do something about it but I have no idea what. 😩

      For those of you planning on a trip to the egg taking station on the Pine River forget it till next year.   Due to the covid regs.  there will be no visitors allowed this year. Hope they are having a good run.  Rayguy

      Hey all! Tomorrow (Apr 3rd) I'm taking some friends out to do some fishing. We usually target rivers, and live around the metro, but I'm willing to drive a ways to find good spots. No boat, so this would be shore fishing.
      We aren't after anything specific but would be nice to get something to fry up later! Which of course means targeting legal fish like carp, suckers, cats, panfish, etc.

      I heard a few lakes are starting to have ice moving and piling up in this two day wind storm.  Folks could end up with some shore line damage?  😬

      Looking to set up my new Alumacraft Trophy boat.  Anyone have experience with Alumatrac?  Stuff available from Alumacraft is plastic and looks weak and the options are quite limited.  Stuff from other makers I have seen (Brocraft, Traxstech, Depth Raider, Colliflower) is metal and a number of reviews say they don't fit or scratch badly.  Seems the tolerance on this track may not be very tight.  Colliflower states they have a top adjustment to account for the poor tolerance but their options are limited.  Looking at all options including rod holders, downrigger holders, and other gadgets.  Trying to decide whether to buy for the track or just mount directly to the gunwale.  Any help is appreciated.

      Is the special 40 inch min pike reg for this lake gone? I only see a 10 per day sunfish limit listed. Thanks

      I figured I would just shoot this out, since I drive by it every day to work.  
       
      The access in Cold Spring was basically open to use this morning.  Yesterday there still was ice at the ramp, and this morning it was all gone.  I'm sure some guys are itching to get their boats out, and looks like a nice weekend to maybe do so. 
       
      I might try and get out Saturday if it stays dry.  I never got a chance to do some data logging with my big motor last fall.  It seems to be running a bit rich, and I want to play with the fuel tables/injectors a bit.  Looks like a great day for that.

      Now that the season is over for eyes, was going to get reels ready for next year, while waiting for summer.  I have been using 6lb test but currently only have 4. I use the Berkley fireline crystal micro ice. Try breaking it, cut into hands. Think it would be strong enough. What does everyone else use, and any problems landing bigger fish?
      Thanks
