    Regarding running the same size ripping chains on the 075 that I run on the 660 (36 inch .050 gauge) I've been told this bar will fit on the 075 but run the .050.
    Bar # 3003-000-8853, the local Stihl dealer is checking it out for me.

    If thats the case and its not a large mount go at-least 41 then it will max out a 36 inch mill.

    Maybe not "busted", but probably just a tweak off of its intended purpose. Hey, don't fix it if its working for you. It sounds like maybe its just a bit light on the amount of pressure it needs to reset it.

    I modified my small mount 36" bar to work on my 051 and 075. I had to slot the oiler holes and open up the bar mount slot with a carbide bit and a dremel to accept the large mount studs. I know the 660 and the 075 have different size studs (12mm and 14mm diameter, if I'm not mistaken).

    I talked with our local Stihl dealer who has the saw, he thinks he has that sprocket in stock. I was told by Stihl via email that bar number 3003-000-8853 will fit on the bigger studs and run the .050 3/8 chain that I run on the 660 but the Stihl dealer wants to confirm this first.

    Thanks

    A carb kit was the only thing he did to it, looks very clean. I'll drain the old plow fluid then put some new stuff in this weekend just to make sure it works.

    Just called the shop, he has about 20 customers he is waiting on so he can't talk. I'll stop by in the morning to seal the deal, looks like the 090 will be added to the stable.

    Looked like I would not have time to stop in the morning so I stopped after work to tell him the old green truck with the plow was his, looks like I'll be the owner of the 090 Stihl.

    I decided that the 075 av would stay original so some new ripping chain along with a bar and we will be milling with that.

    You know what stinks? Now you have to go and buy at LEAST a 54 to 60" bar for that 090, so when you put it on display in the garage or pull it out to scare the hell out of some unruly kids in the area, it will at least look right! I can't wait to see some pics Zappy. I'm jealous....:mad::(

    More coin. I never did ask what bar if any came with it but it's not a big deal.

    Well I would have to imagine he has a bar or two for that saw. Make sure you say "Hey, the bars and chains were part of the deal, right?". I'm guessing he already figured they are part of the deal, but make sure you ask for anything he has in relation to that saw.
