The paint on this saw is simply stunning. Figure out why it has weak spark and it may take off like a rocket. This was a collector's chainsaw. He looked like he was going to cry real tears when he parted with it.
I've never seen a saw this old look this good ORIGINAL PAINT! Looks so good I almost don't want to part with it either.
For some reason the bar oil seems to seep when it sits. It actually had clean fuel in the tank when we received it.
This is the cleanest example of the Stihl 031av vintage chainsaw you are likely ever to find. The right saw for the job at hand has to provide the power and attachments that you need.The Stihl 031 AV chain saw is a medium-sized saw with an engine powerful enough to handle a variety of wood cutting tasks. The 031's power comes at the expense of added weight, but the AV version helps offset the fatigue of wielding the saw for long periods with hydraulic shock absorbers built into the handle.
Engine Output The 031 AV uses a single cylinder two-cycle engine that Stihl lists at 3.2 DIN horsepower at 8,500 revolutions per minute (rpm). One DIN horsepower is the equivalent to 0.986 horsepower under the metric system. The maximum power output of the 031 AV in horsepower is roughly 3.15. The maximum torque output of this saw is 3 nanometers at 6,000 rpm.
Engine Specs The stock configuration of the 031 AV uses a single cylinder with a displacement of 49 cubic centimeters, a stroke of 32 mm and a bore of 44 mm. Engine displacement measures the volume inside each of the engine's cylinders that its pistons displace when they move from the top of the cylinder to the bottom.
Bore measures the diameter of the cylinder, and stroke measures how far the cylinder travels when it makes one full revolution up and down inside the cylinder. These measurements are used to determine the compression and power output of the engine. Attachments And Carburetor The 031 AV delivers fuel to the engine through an all-position diaphragm carburetor with a built-in fuel pump. The carburetor limits the power output of the saw at high and low speeds.These settings are adjustable using the "H" and "L" screws on the carburetor, but increasing the power output at high rpm can seriously damage the saw. The 031 AV's engine drives a broad selection of guide bars including 13-, 15-, 16-, 18- and 20-inch models. The power output of the Stihl 031 AV makes it suitable for cutting firewood or limbing and felling small to large trees with an appropriately sized guide bar. Weight The 031 AV is a heavy saw compared to less powerful models. It weighs appropriately 14.6 pounds when equipped with a chain and 13-inch guide bar -- the smallest it can use.
Without a chain and guide bar equipped, the 031 AV weighs in at roughly 13.2 pounds. These weights are all measured without fuel or bar oil in the saw.
The 031 AV holds 0.6 pints of bar oil and 1.14 pints of fuel.
