I get my Dolmar parts from Pats Small engines  http://www.psep2.biz/pages/OemParts#/Dolmar/PS-7900_Chain_Saws_-_Gasoline/Hood%2c_air_filter%2c_muffler/2S01080025/2S01080002G  There may be cheaper places to buy Dolmar parts but I haven't found it yet.  Black cyl cover $17.44.  Price a Husky cyl. cover.

Thanks for that Shep. The HD air filter kit is about $30 cheaper than Baileys! :o

Almost done. I'm still missing some brake parts. I think i will need to clean the carb. It idles and runs at WOT. But in between it bogs. L adjustments wont work. I had to buy a Total 24'' bar. Love them things. :)

You need to add the upper right hand AV spring limiter cap yet  038 310 070

They are $10 at Bailey's and around $6.50 at the dealer
We should share what we know... someone may learn...
That knowledge can live after us... and that "Pays It Forward".

Also the rubber tail is missing from the chip guide inside your clutch cover.  Without it, the right front corner of your tank will get eaten away.

038 213 190    @ $7.50  at the dealer

The older 6400,7300, & 7900 tended to leak oil pretty bad when setting around.

The problem is rooted around the old tubes from the oil tank to the pump and from the pump to the bar.

They don't cost much but takes a little effort to install them.

The saw is still functional even if they leak.

One style is green and the other is black?

From pump to bar 038 245 061

From tank to pump suction line  038 245 020
