That looks like my Frankenbar which was originally for a G450 Redmax ??? for it said "Redmax" all over it and didn't have any Oregon #'s.

I bought it from Ebay as being a160RNDKO95 bar but it was a 160RNBK095 . I talked to the seller over the phone about it being a bad number but rated the transaction OK for bad Karma can go both ways even if you are correct about a bad transaction. I never bought anything else from that NJ guy. He took the rest of the bars off Ebay.

I scratched the "Redmax" logo stencil away with a 3M pad. Now it is a black bar with a gray tip.

I changed the bar on the Dolmar 111i/115i to a Power Match 160RNDKO95 bar. I didn't think I had another RSC chain and was going to use a LGX that was ground square.

When I went to the chain nail on the wall, I found a nice loop of RSC. So with the new Stihl RSC 60DL loop on the Dolmar, it cut as I liked.

That was last week.

Today I went to use my Husqvarna 545 and after using it, I discovered that it had the LGX chain that was ground square. Apparently I had swapped chains a month ago? My memory is not like it used to be?

Too many saws and too many chains.   I have to write everything down myself.

My grandson used the Dolmar 111i/115i saw to limb a 50' black ash that we dropped Saturday. The chainsaw worked flawless.

I must say that it was a pleasure to be cutting green wood for a change after cutting dry wood for so long. The last green wood I had cut was a year and a half ago and it was three 18" DBH yellow pines and two 12" arborvitaes which I went on to noodle all the larger pieces of the pine with the 111i. I had to then clean the sap from the saw.

I have a 540,
would I get a performance boost by putting a smaller cp jug on there? 
that cp jug looks like some of Jonsereds last jugs they made like the 2055 and 2077.
any one port the 115 jug?

maybe i should just sell it off and find a different project.

Thanks for your help

David

There's not much port widening that can be done to the 115 jug.

Due to the exhaust bolt spacing and the piston skirt width, it just doesn't leave any room.

With a stock piston you can drop the jug a little to get the squish approaching .5mm or .020"

They run pretty good stock. You will like them and will pull a 8 pin rim on .325 or they will run 3/8" chain with pride. 18" is the practical maximum bar length.

I have not looked at a 54cc jug so I know nothing about their timing or even port type. But I understand the 540 to be a mild runner?

Thank you,
the 540 is a mild runner.  open port jug, I don't know the port timing,  every saw is mild and disappointing once you run a ported saw. 

I will say i have been very impressed with the new 421 dolmar 8)

you have to run one!

The 421 is a nice chainsaw as it is the larges member of that family.
