    I didnt realize that this thread was even stickied any longer, also its obviously no longer about rebuilding a 125c, yall have seen to that.

    At any rate, everything is torn down and cleaned and repainted, only thing left to do is get off my butt and send out the motor for new rings and seals and then i can put it back together.

    I got busy with work and life and have been putting it off but i will get it sent out in the next couple of days...

    Question

    Hey I just was reading your post and am in the same boat. Just popped off the flywheel and ordered a condenser. Have new points wondering how you go about removing replacing and setting up the points correctly?

    SP 125 C oil tank leak fix?

    I've got a SP125C that has a bad oil leak as mentioned in the first page of this thread. The oil comes out both bolt holes when the front mount was removed. The oil will also leak out when the mount is bolted tight. Any suggestions to seal these so I can fill the tank with oil and still remove them when needed?

    How about installing two studs with sealant and use nuts to secure the front mount?

    SP125C Oil Tank leak fix

    That's actually a good idea. Didn't think of it. Was wondering if this is a typical problem with these saws. I've done some searching through a lot of threads and haven't found anything yet that mentions this problem. My saw is not a beauty queen so making a change like this really won't hurt the looks any. Thanks!

    I would recommend a new oil tank.
    What size bolts are in there. Sounds
    like maybe larger or longer than 10-24.
    The bolt bosses inside the tank are broken
    and thats why it leaks.

    Thanks Lee for your input. I was wondering about that too in regards to the bolts being too long and busting through the inside of the tank. I'll measure the bolts and see if my parts list shows any difference for length. Then I'll decide which way I want to go with repairs or replacement of the tank.
    Will
