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.
Thanks guys for the info, I might have the chance to purchase one in very good shape, However it needs a coil. Thanks again.
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.
Only if you know how to start them.......I see plenty people flood them till they know how the injector works .....
AWESOME saws.........116si and 120si are hard to beat ........
I know where you can get a coil!!!!!!! there is a guy wanting to part one out
on here check the thread by mightyhammer.
flood them ...heck i know how to over flow them! .. but now 1 -3 pulls max,sweet saws.
i've cornered one of these i might "buy cheap" need a few parts--the recoil starter assembly for one.
will let yall know how it turns out.
and if'n you gotta parts saw...
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.
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
