Dolmar 7900 basket case.
« on: January 28, 2012, 05:27:08 pm »
I finally got my ebay 7900 basket case. This is my first modern Dolmar. To me, It reminds me of a husky 372 series. Quad transfers, carb. The first thing i'm working on is the coil wire needs replaced. Apparently i have to pull the flywheel. ??? The wire is channeled behind the flywheel and seems to be attached somewhere. Does this sound right?

yes the wire runs under the flywheel and it sits in the crankcase on its way to the sparkplug

None of those IPL's are the latest one

Here is the 2009-10 one with the HD filter and the AV limiter from the Dolmar site

I would be interested in the feel of a 6400 too. I had one but converted it to a 7900 before ever running it.

My 6400 is a regular attendee at every GTG I attend, so yes it will be there.
I won't have a 365 of any kind unless it comes to me so cheap that I would be stupid not to buy it.
