The pull cord shouldn't have anything to do with your problem.

Check the fuel lines for cracks/breaks. If they are o.k., then:

Youwill need to disassemble the carburetor and spraywith carb.cleaner. Make sure the small screen is free of debris.(Should be able to see daylight through it.) Use a Den Tek Brush, (http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp?pid=165357&catid=1152),to clean the small portals in carb. These portals canbecome blocked. Reassemble and start.

If the carb. parts are more than 4 years old, you may have to replace them.

If you need further assistance, just let me know.

SOURCE: i need a chain but cant find one in my area listed

Count the drive links (the part that fits in the bar) if 72 drive links on a 3/8s chain that is 0.050" your Oregon part number is "72V072G" for low kick back chain. You can purchase a more aggressive chain at a local chainsaw seller/mechanic. I prefer Stihl chain over Oregon. Replace Makita (parent company) with Dolmar (actual manufacturer) here:

If not the origainal bar there may more or less drive links. HTH

You can see how to repair this saw in the Makita DCS540 Manual. It is around page 28 I think.

Oregon lists nothing beyond 18". I would not go beyond that.

If you need a 20" Home Depot rents 6401 Makitas (blue Dolmars). Biggest danger here is you will never be happy with the Wild Thing again. You can often purchase a used Makita at Home Depot for a very good price. The 6401 can be modified to a 7900, a lot of saw. HTH

I have a Makita 520i, it won't start and the local repair shop willnot work on it as they say parts are not available. Where can I get it fixed? I live in Colorado


Makita (blue) is the parent company and made by Dolmar (red). Your Makita 520i is a Dolmar 111i. That may open a few avenues for parts.

This is a collection of chainsaw enthusiasts, dealers, nuts, etc. I did a search for your saw and got many hits (guess where I learned your saw is a Dolmar 111i, cutinscott I think was born a Dolmar dealer.). It is free to join and they are a pretty good bunch. HTH
