    Hello folks,
    its picture time again. Today for one of the less common Dolmars out there: PS-344

    ersteindruck.jpg

    1st impression on arrival: Quite a promising sight

    kurbelgehaeuse_offen.jpg

    some work needed since the crank had small but noticeable radial clearance, so I replaced main bearings and seals

    other than that the little sweety was in real good shape

    Replaced the stock oil-pump with an adjustable one to minimize the notorious oil-spill of these saws

    And this is what makes the 344 (and 342) different: Tillotson injector carb plus primer.
    Part throttle position is now switched with the choke-switch visible beneath the primer bulb,
    no more lock-button in the rear handle.
    The chock switch has 2 positions (other than off): 1 - cold start, 2 - part throttle

    Starting instructions depicted on the hood.


    And now, that's her:

    The sprocket cover decal is NLA and I haven't got a color laser printer (yet) to produce a new sticker

    It's nice to be able to see one of these disassembled.
    Thanks for the pics!

    Hey Mark, I still have that David Bradley Sears Roebuck electric chainsaw for whenever you have room for it, no rush.

    It's a Dolmar 309 power cut. The model was based on the Sachs Dolmar 123 chainsaw 70cc

    Thanks Scott - I will start searching for a 123 cylinder & piston.

    Make sure you check the position of the spark plug angle. Your saw is the newer angled type. The chainsaw version had the plug straight out the rear.

    As far as I know, the spark angle was always the same with the 123 Sachs-Dolmar saws,
    that is straight pointing back to the rear. Maybe I'm wrong, but looking for a cylinder
    with slanted spark plug angle like in your pics will be a tough job. Good luck!

    These days I managed to close a wide yawning gap in my tiny collection:
    Sachs-Dolmar 105 'Black & White' in remarkable good shape for a remarkable
    good price:

    sd_105_bw_lh.jpg

    sd_105_bw_rh.jpg

    In case you don't know - There were 4 models produced as 'Black & White' special edition saws late 1985 for about 4 months:
    Sachs-Dolmar 105
    Sachs-Dolmar 108
    Sachs-Dolmar 110 - the only Sachs-Dolmar saw with white plastic parts
    Sachs-Dolmar 112.

    The latter three I already had on my shelves, the 105 missing until now.
