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.

      Anyone getting any over the air TV station with a small antenna? I am not asking about any specific area but curious in an area from Vermilion, Ely, Isabella and the Shore areas.

      We're having daily heat adversey,  20+ days of 90 deg. Hang in there. NOAA and Federal forecast just announced the Midwest has a 95% chance of a January through March La Nina which means a cold winter and above average snow fall. Early ice may be a challange with forecasted colder and wetter October through December.

      The mouth of the creek is quite a ways downstream from the landing, and you’ll have to cross several peoples’ docks. Entire stream is surrounded by private property. Sure, you can technically legally access the stream, but why would you want to bother with the headache of dealing with landowners that DON’T want you there? Stream is small enough to step across in most places, it’s very weedy, and lot’s of overhanging brush. Not to mention, below average at best numbers of small trout!   You want easy access? Buy a Wisconsin license! Right across the river in Pierce County alone, there’s hundreds of miles of public easements on trout streams that are ten times better than anything Minnesota has to offer!

      Pike suckers are about 3½ inches long.  Walleyes really like them in the fall and early winter.  Caught my fish in 13-15 FOW drifting slowly.  Good solid bites.

      Got up Thursday evening to rain and pretty heavy wind Friday morning had us holding off on putting the boat in the water. Fished briefly Friday evening at sunset and picked up an 18" and a couple smalls. Fishing was decent Saturday morning but no real size, everything was 12-15". I had one that looked to be 17"ish flop off as I was trying to flip it into the boat. All the fish we caught were in 17-22'. We were fishing around about a 6' top but never caught anything on top. They appeared to be relating to the structure but not actually on it. Tried again Saturday evening for a couple hours and continued to pick up small walleye just like the morning. Sunday was windy again but we decided to slug it out for awhile and caught one decent perch and one small walleye. We fished similar depths and spots as Saturday but they weren't there. Marked them out in 35'+ but didn't feel like fighting the wind out in the big water so we called it quits around noon and never went back out(the wind never really did lay down or we may have tried again). Jig/minnow way outfished bottom bouncers/crawlers. Wish bottom bouncers would have worked better because it was tough to keep a jig down as fast as we were drifting and we never found a school to spot lock on.

      that last pic is great!!   Hazel is saying oppps!!!  
    • MikeG3Boat
      I am heading up there tomorrow.  Where do you guys get minnows up in the area?  Tower or Cook or down in Virginia?  I have never heard of pike suckers?  How large are they?  Are you guys fishing the East or West side of the lake?  Let me know.  I am thinking of fishing the East side tomorrow and then headed to the west side from Thursday thru Sunday.  Any help would be appreciated?  I am a newby to the area.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks!
