    I went ahead and picked up that 1 owner Partner S65 today. Guy bought it new Nov 1, 1985 for $399.99. Have receipt, warranty cards and all the books with the big IPL page. I didnt want or need the saw but figure I will check it out and pass it onto someone that will want it. Just sharing for those folks that used to run Partner before elux bought and ruined them. Plus a old ad and 1983 price guide dealer cost and retail

    Dolmar is no more. Makita has owned them for 20 years or so and now has their name on them in the dolmar colors. Makita reps are getting the parts to the dealer way better then the dolmar reps did. Per the dealer I deal with. I am in Ohio. Just got to know the right dealers. My local one suked.

    Shared by a stihl dealer on my chainsaw repair group. Just wanted to tell all the Stihl MS200T guys/gals here that Stihl has lowered their MSRP on the cylinder and piston kit to $159. Why would you ever buy aftermarket with that price on OEM now?!

    Done and just finished test cuts in some ash yesterday. Only thing I did was leave the baffle out of the muffler on this one. Just badazz saws for 65cc IMHO. Quad ports. Left it 65cc due to being like brand new still. Plus having 71cc and 83cc running already. So still have 1 used and 1 nos 77cc topends if I decide later.

    Doing what appears to be a low hour 1991 65cc. Bought from owner that dealer couldnt get parts for. Dealer got hold of me and said his dad sold the saw new. No problem for me getting parts. ;) Heck I even sent the dealer a part he needed for another saw. Also updating tank and air filter set up to the better later ones. Trying to decide if I want to leave it 65cc or take it to 71cc or 77cc

    Rebuilt from a box and painted lime green for fun back in 2013. Just cleaned up and put another top p+c and new impulse line etc. Sold the other topend to a guy in B.C. needing one and sold him the crank out of my 475 I had tore down for bearings. Found a pic of 505 before I went through it 2013

    Did this on a MS390 not long ago. Reason being the aftermarket line pinched and shut off fuel flow. No oem line on hand. Guy needed his saw and it was a Sunday. I ran this idea by him and he was on his way cutting again. ;)

If I dont buy saws in first hour posted I like, the vultures get them. None on my CR website though right now. Use it now to save info from the FB group so not to get lost so quickly. So many good deals on Craigslist. Guy just bought a like new 460 and 360 for $900 for both. Your missing out if your not searching CL IMO. Slim picking here.

    Cut4fun replied to a thread Poulan 245a seals in Chainsaws!
    Info from hotshot. Found both the aftermarket PTO side seals manufactured by Dichtomatik. BTW, neither of the OEM Poulan 306/245 PTO side seals are a garter spring type pressure seal, both are the V seal designs but have worked well for thirty years or more & the new ones passed pressure/vacuum testing fine. Both of my saws have new seals & oiler plunger quad rings now all through, and they run great. The OEM outer seal for the oiler cover is 5/8" x 7/8" by an 1/8" in width, Poulan 530019035. The inner PTO side seal is Poulan 5300001936, both are metal OD, V type lips. Here's their website, https://catalog.dichtomatik.us/ Go to the Product Information tab & download the catalog, it's rather large but quite worth reading through. Seals are on page 71 & 74. The inner seal is a #068091VM. There's only one design choice available, V seal & Metal OD. The outer seal I used was a #060809VC . It's also a V seal with a rubber coated OD and thinner at 0.094" width. I don't think a pressure type garter is necessary, as the oiler cover flanges fits loosely. If they made a metal OD VM type, I would have preferred that. There are three other outer PTO seals available in the correct dimensions, one is a #0608709VC & shows to be only 0.001" wider, WTF is up with that?? The other two seals are true garter spring designs, the 06081SM & 060871TZ-H. The SM is a single lip metal OD type, and the TZ-H is a dual lip metal OD type with a factory sealant coating on the OD. Both of the garter types are an 1/8" wide. Don't forget to put sealant on the two larger oiler cover bolts when you put the cover back on, as that's a direct shot into the crankcase! In other words, you can't pressure/vac test unless you plug those holes. Well, my thought was right on the two catalog sizes listed for this little seal. Just got around last week to call the Dichtomatik sales office in Houston to check. The Dichtomatik catalog is wrong & has two part numbers duplicated on page 71. The correct number for the P306 outside pump cover grease seal is 0608709VC, which is 7/8" OD. The part number 060809VC is a 0.813" OD & would be too small. Also found out that Fastenal can get this seal brand shipped to their locations in just a few days, usually from a central warehouse in Shakopee, Minnesota. Well crap, I (tried) using another 0608709VC rubber coated oil pump cover seal, and it won't stay put. With all the grease that you packing into the gear housing, then have to install the cam end up into the seal before you install the gear set, the greasy seal pops just back out of the cover housing. There is no backstop/ledge for this seal application, as the 7/8" hole in the cover is bored straight through. The first one I used did fine, but I installed it after degreasing and used some Dirko HT on the outside edge. I don't suggest using this slippery type 0608709VC rubber OD seal. Ues the DICHTOMATIC #06081SM seal, which has a STEEL CASE OD & uses a garter spring to back the NBR nitrile lip. FIXED Picked up a half dozen of the DICHTOMATIC #06081SM seals at Fastenal today, and they are the correct ones for oil pump gear cover on the P245/306 series saws. The only difference is that these are garter spring backed, and not the simple V lipped grease seal that was factory installed by Poulan. If you want pics, and I can some post later on. Unless MM needs help on the Speigel 223 seal, this thread is wrapped up like fishing line on your lawn mower shaft!

    Cut4fun replied to a thread Power Brooms in Gear Forum
    WTH didnt I buy one of these sooner. :O Today after firing the grill up I was dying to know. I took the new toy down the gravel drive on the grass areas. About 300' worth. I was like holy chit man. I am kicking myself in the azz for not buying one of these years back. It was pulling old buried gravel out of the dirt and tossing them back on the driveway. I found if you go straight on it would throw them 8'-10' across the drive. So found going at a angle way better. Highly impressed with the way this ope pulls the gravel out of the grass and embedded in dirt. I mixed up 3gal of echo red armor mix and I didnt even go through a tank yet and 1/4 of it done. 8)
