    I thought this bar should fit (Husqvarna 20-Inch FT280-72 Chain Saw Bar, 3/8-Inch by .050-Inch ) should it ? or is it just plane wrong bar for this saw ?? Also adjuster hole doesn't line up. Should I just file where I need to and make it fit ???
    Bought a new chain also 20" Oregon 72LGX-72

    dang, you must have missed that part of my post in your other thread.

    yes, that is the one.....scroll down on the amazon page, I think it lists the 61 as a saw it fits.

    Thanks dave
    When I found out I had the wrong bar I was going to call Atherton Rd Sales tomorrow , and I was just there two days ago :rolleyes: ,I didn't even know I needed a new bar at the time, Martins Hardware is just down the read from there, I have been there long ago when I lived 1/4 mi away
    So this is a large mount bar ?? Oregon 20" Pro-Lite Chainsaw Bar (200SLHD009) 72 Drive Links, U should know :)
    I'll take the dang saw with me

    Thanks for the info dave
    I checked around locally ,they want $65 for the bar alone so , I ordered this combo , (200slhd009 Oregon ProLite - 20" Chainsaw Bar and 72LGX072g Chain ) for $50 shipped,tax included, cuz it's in the same state, from , http://customcare.co/ ,should be here in 2 days
    I think That's a good price ,I paid $18 for for that same chain
