Dolmar 5105 chainsaw case
« on: March 29, 2015, 07:22:58 pm »
May be not a huge consideration for most, but am looking for a case for my Dolmar 5105 chainsaw. Finding the typical sources ie Northern Tool Baileys, etc do not have a compatible case. Let me know, thank you in advance.

I've got a case on order from my Dolmar dealer. About $39 Canadian, plus tax.

Not bad on the price. That family of saws and in particular the 5100 are sensitive to the bearing spinning on the clutch side.

The PTO bearing is supposed to be seated in an adhesive.

There's a Dolmar case pictured on USA Ebay, open and closed, saw included.  I have no interest in this sale, wrong country.

Thanks for the tip on the crank bearing. There's still 20 months left on the 5105's warranty, but I'll keep an eye on it.

I picked up the case today, although the dealer had it in last week. $38 Canadian before sales tax and GST (Gouge and Screw Tax). It's well enough made for the price, about the same quality as a Stihl case, and has lot of room for a 5150 and 18" bar.

I consider that some of the PTO side bearing failures where the outer race spins in the crankcase can be attributed to running the chain very tight?

There's also thoughts that 50:1 oil ratios are a EPA push and that it is better for the bearings to use 32:1 or at least 40:1 oil ratios.

Most of the 6400-7900 saws I've worked on had a very loose interference  fit on the case to main bearing O.D.  wouldn't surprise if the 50cc saws were the same.   I believe the latest saws use a retaining compound on the main bearings from the factory now.

I measured the case and there's room for a 5150 with a 20" bar. It's not even a tight fit.
