    Got my new bar and chain combo from Bailey's today...UPS sure took their time on this one......

    So far I am very impressed with the bar...Heavy duty steel and the fit from bar to tip is the best I have ever seen....Replaceable tip has oil holes on both sides and there is no play in the rivet..I have a ES bar that is loose and every Oregon bar I have encountered has been loose as well...


    Anyone wanting a great bar cheap get em before they run out!!!!

    I did however come up with a problem with the 064....White smoke after is has sat for a few days I fired it off tonight and all I got was white smoke out the carb...Bad thing it did not stop as long as I ran the saw it smoked...

    So my best guess the case gasket has failed and the bar oil is leaking into the case.....

    O and another thing the saw is no nose heavy.... Had a big day of firewood gathering on sat and I will hate if I can't show off my new saws to the in-laws!!!! Even my 038 av is acting up needs the carb reset... Don't like to idle after it gets hot..It is acting like my MS290 did after I broke it in..I little tune on the carb and it still runs sweet.....

    Funny after getting these three saw and wheeling and dealing a few others the 290 is still my go to saw...It just never lets me down...........

    From the other forum...

    The top of the piston has what looks like dirty oil on it..Except where the plug sits it is clean. Made a little triangle there... I tried to get a sample off the piston with a q-tip but found the stuff was hard and not coming off...


    Looks like the gasket let go on me.......

    Know where I can get some bearings cheap???

    I got to try out the 28" bar today in some 30" oak

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I think I may try a 7 tooth rim I did seem to bog it a time or two... I hit something in the second tree barb wire..The Carlton chain took it alright but was a pain to touch up...I think it is harder then Stihl chain..I used a stihl file but it seemed to slide over the tooth.. Any way ready to go back tomorrow...

    Now went to the dealer and priced some parts .. PTO bearing $43 the other $26 seals $15 and $12 lastly the gasket is $6..

    So with some help from JJ on another forum I found the one bearing I am going to change for $1.75.. Mark up is a bi**h.............I should be up and running for $25 or so...Gonna make the jig to split the case as soon as I get all the wood off the lot that just came up...Free red oak gonna get all I can..............

    I did not even notice they were there till I used them to drop those trees today.. They don't seem to get in my way..

    Besides how are you supposed to force your dull chain threw that muddy log if you can't stick the dawgs???

    Started with a 18" a few years back..Quickly went to the 20" since my inlaws think you an't a man if you don't have a 20" bar....

    I wonder what they think now I have the 28"??????

    I ran my FIL 361 yesterday for one cut bucking a log and he grinds off the rakers way to much.. When I touched the log it bout pulled out of my hands lol......

    it sure does...

    Kinda hard on a saw as well...

    He is use to the 41 he run for 20 years..The low end on one of them is insane. He would grind the rakers clean off...............
