    Out on top. I "think" tail is narrower on Oregon. Have to measure stud key way on both to check. Don't keep me in suspense Papa Smurf, what are you thinking it is?

    I don't have a clue Dahmer (isn't that obvious by now?). Just throwing out things to take a closer look at tomorrow, and hopefully it will become obvious what is causing the problem.

    A twisted or curved bar can bind all of a sudden once deep enough in a cut. I'd lay it on a flat surface to check the straightness.

    If the bar is thicker than the working stihl b/c, try a new chain... Is it a 1 or 3 rivet replaceable tip? The tip rivet mite be out a bit and binding in the kerf...if the machining hole plug is missing the open hole can bind too. I think the correct tail pattern # for Oregon is xxxxDO25 & Stihl brand bar# is 3003

    Same chain used on both bars and it's a new chain.

    Now you know why the seller got rid of it, did you dress the bar once you received it? My guess is it is bent or rails are not true

    IMG_0535.JPG I'm stumped. Check with a straight edge, no bends. Checked with square, rails same height and perpendicular to bar length. Bar number is correct and nose shows no sign of having been replaced. Checked with finger and cotton ball, no burrs. No matter what chain I use, same problem, saw stops right now when full width of bar is buried and chips loading under chain on bottom rail and. Use same chains on original Stihl bar and zero problem. For all the more I ran this bar I'm seeing wear on top of bar. That wear wasn't there when I unpacked bar. The wear is only on that side. No I didn't flip it to see if it made a difference, by now I really don't care. Bite the bullet and buy a new Stihl bar. No more used bars for me.

    The good thing about Stihls is, they are not picky about the brand of plugs you put in them.
