    I was in Germany a couple weeks after they emptied factory and gave a lot of it to collectors. I got a tiny chunk of the cake, others near and more dedicated got a lot. I have seen some of it.

    2008 I got notification of the start of Makita Sweden. Makita had then completed deal since a couple years and I bought Dolmars from Tanaka Sweden that sold Sachs-Dolmar up to purchase of this. A funny (not funny as in HA HA, funny as in odd, wizard) fotnote: Makita Sweden was sub division to Makita Filand that was sub division of Makita Estonia, that was under Makita Germany, that was Makitas Dolmar section. That meant when all was said and done, the saws I got was a lot pricier (dealer price) than if I bought it as paying customer in Germany.

    Sachs-Dolmar never made saws. It was a company selling Dolmar saws made in and by DOLMAR Maschinen-Fabrik GmbH & Co. to other countrys as Dolmar just sold in Germany at one point. Dolmar up to recently, WAS not infatuated by Makita. Now they are and we soon get to see if that is a good thing or not. Reason for purchase was that Dolmar did not want saws sold in box stores. Just dealer networks.. That was the same with Jonsered, Stihl and Husqvarna too but it is old thinking, now obselete.

    I think it was 2006 Makita bought majorety of stock. They were not interfering in development and so first ten years. 2014 development moved to Makita from Dolmar. Not sure if there is anything left in factory now. It was not changed until pretty recently.

    A good routine to have when using saws a bit harder, like bucking short length is to rev saw a bit after a couple cuts. That is the tuffest job you can do with a saw. Stand still with bar pointing down, no crazy "wot" running, just flip throttle so rpm go up and down from idle to top and down again. Help cool engine as airflow increase without load, lubes bar/chain. Takes a bit stress of that easily build as well. Setting them on idle if they over heat is worse than shutting of as piston keep expanding. Good to do regardless of saw, but especially good to do when running hobby, farmer/semipro saws like this a bit harder. Here they have 14" bars, max 16". All 3/8Hobby chains

    Using part of old line like grommet work sometimes. Other times you need to get creative. In extreme cases I clued original hole shut and made a new one. There is always a way... To prevent hose collapsing in bends, springs is a great thing. Inside line is best, but can work outside as well. I use ball point pen springs a lot.

    I some times use the bolts that tread hole them self as a quick fix. If you get right with length and metal (so it takes the temps) it will sit just as well, if not better.

    Magnus replied to a thread Chainsaw Rebuilder? in Chainsaws!
    In any tinkering with saws first thing I do is put in a new corrected and tested spark plug. Helps get some parameters out of head. One system at the time, if its not OK, go thru all of it part by part. Start in one end and go thru all of system. If its fuel system you start in tank with pickup/filter, then fuel line, carb, intake, impulsline etc.. Coffey help you a bit.. Education ladder is set pretty steep at first. Being a cranky, stubborn old bastard that never give a inch also help in this work. I have saws with 40hrs+ in them until I got them good. But there is not much that beat the satisfaction you get when its running right, better than new even. Keep in there and don't let a little inanimate thing as a saw get under your skin.

    Magnus replied to a thread Chainsaw Rebuilder? in Chainsaws!
    What carb is in it? Is it Walbro WJ? Always start from scratch when setting carbs. Set it to factory settings and fine tune from that. Make sure carb is tight, no leak in main inlet valve (and set right) or gaskets/membrane. No crap in filter under pump membrane. Set it One full turn out from LIGHTLY seated. This it should start and run on. After you got it running you sett L so there is no hesitation on acceleration. Strong idle. H is top rpm but also affect L so don't tinker with it if not needed. In Full throttle it should just slightly four stroke, then clear up as it gets in under load. When I set saws I set them under load after performance. When they run as best that is good enough for me.

    Magnus replied to a thread Chainsaw Rebuilder? in Chainsaws!
    Kits are not the same all the time. Older materials had higher standards and take the fuels we have today. Ethanol is not a big problem for membranes. Its all the other crap.. These plastic pump membranes are very different from the ones made from normal material. You feel and hear difference in the saw using these. When I started out plastic pump membranes was not used much and you got both in the kit. So testing was a must.... If I find a old saw that has not had fuel after '75 I don't need to change membranes. They are just fine 9 times out of 10. Kits are always available from mfg and the parts distributes. The cheap stuff I can't say I had good luck with. Wrong pin lever heights, not correct sizes and holes. Stretch fast.. Not the performance I need and they don't last very long. I try to get from mfg. Its no bulletproof stuff either, but chances are higher they are ok...

    If this was me, that bar and saw would be back at the dealer and they can sort it out.

    Drill a hole in correct position should work. One drivelink more could also work. Do you know who made the bar? What bar it is? HVA USA doesn't have same bars as we have here except Techlite. Thats the only bar they made them self so far I think. Chain production is started now, but most chain out in stores is still Oregon chain.

    No it should not pump at idle, but with bar and chain off sometimes clutch drum turn anyway ans it oils a bit. Let me guess you have .050 guage bar? Tiny oiler hole? Perhaps a bit dry wood?

    Classic! One more bonus when filing vertical. You tend to pay attention to this better. The danger of getting hurt is more obvious I think.

    I can't use gloves. I try, but it just don't feel right. I wish I could.. Twice I rubbed file dust in to my eyes. I cut myself many times straitening out chains delivered in bundles or digging thru the boxes looking for chain.. Running saw I can do, but thats about it. I tried as hard as I possibly can.
