Thanks everyone for your input! Lots of good thoughts on this, i love this forum already.Does the saw run??? If it does great but if it doesn't I'd make sure it did before going out and spending money on a bar and chain . I went down that road a one to many times working on those old saws that turned out to be duds but they had a nice bar and chain.
In our area a .404 / .058 bar and chain combo would be non existent. It would be better to switch to a .404 pitch .063 gauge chain like has been previously mentioned.
Damn 7/16, that's even bigger stuff huh?
The above is an 82cc Remington with 18” roller nose and 7/16” chain.
Slide the bar/chain/rim on as an assembly. Replace the washer and nut.
Yes and thank you!Fantastic. And .404 .058 -- the rare duckling has been found.
I run skip on all my saws and prefer it. Some here complain about it not cutting smoothly, but maybe they are making furniture, so who knows.
