I do...well, kind of. I have a 123 (very clean) and a 143 P/C. I have to make some time to do the swap. It still won't have the larger FW side bearing, but for the amount of use it will see, I'm sure it will hold together just fine.

That sounds like a fun conversion. You'll have to let us know how it turns out.  8)

Very nice. I dont know too much about them other than they are a beast.

I would like to get my hands on one of them big older ones (133,143,153,166) but the opportunity hasnt presented itself yet. They dont come up for sale that often, and when they do, they usually bring premium dollar.

Do you mind if I ask how much it set you back?? Cause I got a lead on one now, but the guy doesnt want to part with it....yet.

I'm not sure what it is about those old Dolmar's but they run like cut cats.

My little 117 is a ball tearer for it's capacity, and the 119 is supposed to be an even better saw.

I had a 119. it was a strong saw. Same cc as my stihl 036 pro but much heavier.
