    Well I learned something after I put the bow on my 361. They take some power to run, so if your wanting to put a bow on a 028 you better make it a smaller model.

    How did the 361 pull it? Did it have any trouble?

    The Poulan is 60cc and a good runner, the bow seemed to pull a little harder then the regular 20" bar.

    Man that 028 looks good. Where did you get the bow bar and what size is it? Also what chain are you running on it .325, 3/8 or what?

    Thanks Mac

    I got this one from Ebay. It measures 18" from the clutch cover
    to the end of the bar. Chain is 3/8
