Just wondering what the percentage chance of the Pai Gow dealer winning 5,6 or 7 hands in a row, disregarding ties,pushes, since no money changes hands.

I'm glad you rounded that off:-)

the dealer wins a little over 50% of the time, depending on the exact set of hand-setting rules that the player and dealer are using. so .5ish^n is the formula to use to find the probability of the dealer winning n hands in a row. taking 1/result will give the to-1 version of the answer (like Buzz's 1:127 above)

I actually got 1 in 109.75 using 28.61% as Player and 29.91% as Dealer figuring 7 straight Dealer wins no push. This from WoO site.
Nonetheless, rather common. For 7 straight hands dealt the odds are about 1 in 4670 that the Dealer will win all 7.

Well, if RaleighCraps is at the table the odds of the dealer winning 100 in a row is about 1:1.
