The 7900 is normally limited in using a bar longer than 28" unless you are cutting clean green wood.
We should share what we know... someone may learn...
That knowledge can live after us... and that "Pays It Forward".

Even without a milling machine the rotor adjustment looks do-able with any number of tools.  The screw is another matter. 

Great info. 

Interesting that these saws are light on oil.  Every old Dolmar I ever worked on shot oil like a fountain. 

You may be able to modify the OEM screw by removing the nub and then drilling a hole in its place. Then epoxy in a section of tig rod as a new taller nub.

If you use a screw it needs to be about the same dia as the nub or you may loose flow.
