    Was the Sach Dolmar 116 any good? What's the difference between the 116 and the 116si?

    There was a 116 and the 116si, both great saws. The 116si later called ps6000 was one if not the strongest 60cc saw built.

    The Sachs Dolmar 116 was a 56 cc saw with a 45 mm bore and 35 mm stroke made in 1985-86.
    The 116si was a 60 cc saw with a 46 mm bore and 36 mm stroke made from 1987 til 96.
    I own and run both models in multiples and can vouch for their toughness and reliability.

    IMO these are very good saws. Made in Germany, high quality and reliable.

    The 116 Si has a fitting on the carb to inject a shot of gas for starting. Made the saw much easier to start. I wish it was still used. I had a 116 Si and a 120 Si with the injector. Easiest to start saws that I have ever used.

    I put a 116Si together this week (new piston), and it ran top for a while, but now it seems to flood at start. I forgot what position that injector handle needs to be (all markings on the cover are gone). i suspect the carb diaphragm being sticky, but can anyone tell me the right starting procedure, just to be sure.
    thanks

    injector handle should be down when running the saw,for cold start handle up for 1 pull then flip it down should work. warm dont use the injector, these saws are very easy to flood
