Thanks for he info guys.  Thinking we'll send his carb to Poleman.

For older saws:
Tune the H side so that it 4-strokes (burbles) at WOT unloaded and just cleans up when under load.
When you lift cutting load, the saw should immediately revert to 4-stroking.  Fine tune the transition point for the wood you're cutting.

Just got off the phone with Rottman sales. They should be signing up tomorrow.  Said they have some NOS Solo Partner and another brand I cant remember .

Also said they are getting parts in for these solo saws from the new company that bought out solo. Thread here somewhere on that.

Down to about 19 665 now too.

So who got the NIB NOS solo 675 last night for $560 shipped.  Great deal IMO.

That is the 2nd 675 and 1 665 so far looking back at their history. The 665 was under $500 before shipping of $30.

Not me I had to make myself not bid on it.  Things are only a good deal if you're in "need" not want.  Saw the Poulan 8500 dang it man.  Maybe one day.  Need to trim the herd a bunch.

Info Dan posted when the solo first came out. He was a dolmar and solo dealer.

Old post of mine that was shared with me from Dan. Solo Dolmar deal.

Here is some info that was passed on by a solo,dolmar,redmax dealer when the 681 first arrived.
I have found in my own experience that it is difficult to find a local dealer for solo and that the online parts ordering doesn't seem to work for the 681. This was when the 681 was first released.

(((((The new Solo 681 is now here, 81cc (80.7) same basic weight as the 7900 but with some major improvements.
The 681 has a larger air filter then the 7900, that is why the air filter cover is shaped a little different.
681 also has the good Walbo carburetor not the typical cheap Zama from China like the Dolmar.
681 has the side chain tensioner in the case like a Stihl not in the side cover like Dolmar.
681 also has a large top AV spring. The Dolmar had problems with them breaking.
681 also has a better bracket set up on the AV mount to the top handle. 681 bracket is bolted to the top cover. The Dolmar has a strap that wraps around the handle and it is always turning and putting stress on the top av spring.
681 has a two year YES TWO YEAR commercial warranty.
Parts for the Dolmar are a problem, you have to find a dealer.
Parts for a Solo can be ordered online from Solo at the same price they cost from the dealer.
At first you will think that it is built by Dolmar. That is not the case. This saw is built by Solo. Solo does sell the large Dolmar 9010, they call it the 694 but the 681 and its smaller sisters 675, 665 are Solo built.
From what I understand is that Dolmar did not design all of the 7900. Solo designed a lot of the parts for that saw. They were to be sold together in joint venture like the large Dolmar 9010.
Dolmar took all of the credit for the 7900 and Solo got the shaft.
Solo took it one step farther and made the same basic saw with a larger engine and a few improvements.
OK I have had a lot of questions about installing the 681 parts on the 7900 to make it 81cc.
Both of the above saws have the same bore size of 52mm. The 681 jug will bolt right on the 7900 case the muffler and carb boot will line right up but the jug is taller to accommodate the longer stroke so you will loose compression with the 7900 crank. I am sure that you can put the 681 crank in the 7900 case. That is a lot of work and with the cost of the crank and labor its not economically feasible.
