    Does anyone know of an online source for stihl replacement parts (filters, spark plugs, etc.) I tried getting part numbers off of stihlusa.com but couldn't find actual part numbers. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    All the chainsaws and everything not listed below use a Bosch WSR6F (1110 400 7005) or NGK BPMR7A

    BR500 thru BR600, FS130, HT130~HT131 use NGK CMR6H (0000 400 7011)

    FS90~FS110, FC90~FC110, HL90~HL100, HT100~HT101, KM90~KM110, HS81~HS86, use Bosch USR7AC (0000 400 7009)

    All gapped at .020

    As for air filters, you'll have to check with the aftermarket suppliers, or check with some of the vendors that are on this site.

    Check a seller named cheapchainsawparts? on Ebay. He has lots of Stihl parts.

    If you need carb parts, you can get those online, or through a channel other than Stihl. Zama carbs are not a Stihl part per se, so those parts do not have to pass through a dealer. If you need a carb , or a rebuild kit, find the number and get it through third party channels if you wish.

    Other items that at unique to Stihl are not sold online, as lawboy dan stated. Yep, a real problem.... (another story for another thread).

    Actually I have run into a carb on a Stihl that was not available anywhere else. I forget if it was Zama or Walbro but it actually had Stihl molded into it and that specific carb was only available through Stihl. It was still made by the carb company but they wouldnt sell it to anyone else.

    Thanks for the correction. I should have added, "In my experience ...." My machines have only had Zama.

    Just to be clear, while Zama makes all the carbs for Stihl, they are made to Stihl specs, and are not the same as other Zama carbs, and the carbs and parts Zama makes for Stihl, are only sold to Stihl.
    They may interchange with other carbs on some parts, but it seems that Stihl has Zama make the carbs for them different enough that you need to go to Stihl to buy a whole carb.
