How’s this one look I can’t seem to find a Oregon VXL or similar 18”. With the .50 - 3/8Your existing bar is probably fine.
That chain with the bumper tie straps is one of the least desirable chains out there and to top it off, it’s dull and has significant leading edge damage. I’d recommend a new loop of Oregon VXL or similar.
Return that .043 bar and chain or you’ll be stuck buying special order (expensive) chain.
That’s standard 3/8.How’s this one look I can’t seem to find a Oregon VXL or similar 18”. With the .50 - 3/8
sorry to sound stupid I just have no fn clue about numbers!
but I did read somewhere that my oem 18” bar and chain will bog my small 142e down vs changing to a 16” bar and chain
Here’s some full chisel. I haven’t used this but hear people like it.
I reassemble with a little bit of oil.
It wouldn’t hurt to use a little bit of sealant on the outside of the crank seals. Make sure everything is clean and it’s a good sealant for engine assembly, not just RTV.
