You will be MUCH better off buying a new 3/8 drive sprocket (about $6) than you are searching for new .354 chain.Well after being so sure it was 3/8th chain, the dealer was wrong it is definitely McCulloch .354. Luckily I can get my money back on the other chain, now does anyone have a clue where to source .354 chain anymore?
As long as you get the correct drum for the saw with a 3/8 rim there’s nothing else to worry about.I've found unlimited clutch housings out there with interchangeable sprockets for 3/8ths .050 chain.
Sorry if these are entry level questions,
But do I need to worry about spacing the new housing on the shaft?
Can I reuse the original clutch in the new housing?
And will I need a new bar that is good for 3/8 chain?
You only need the drum that is the same size as your current one, you can use your existing clutchAll of the mcculloch drums/clutches I can find are spin on style where mine has a woodruff key and a right hand thread bolt.
Does anyone have any knowledge of someone out there with .354 chain? Thinking that will just be the easiest approach at this point
