I just checked a loop of that chain I have and the pin is supposed to be peened on both sides, I'm guessing yours wasn't peened enough and the rust/chafing caused it to come free. Just re-peen it and you should be good to go.Newbie to the chainsaw restoration world here. After getting the chain for my mall 6 freed up, the pin that completes the loop fell out of the chain. What’s the proper way to get this pin to hold in place? It appears to be worn where the side plates ride.
Also, would I be correct in identifying this cutter profile as side planer?http://www.acresinternet.com/cscc.n...2e4b903f364e5e1688256e17005719d1?OpenDocument
What about grinding off the next pin & removing the link,then get a 9/16 preset & put it back together.
9/16" Pitch. There were several variations of chain, make sure your old links look exactly like the ones in the photo.www.ebay.com
