you'll notice that on the 'swivel' (black metal part) there is a small threaded hole for a bolt. they would tell you to add the bolt if you were running a bar longer than 28". they figured the kickback hazard was slim to none and every time you would hit the tip the extra weight of the bar would prematurely
engauge the brake :)
when I grow up, i wanna be an adult.

Checked the psi today out of curiosity. Even with the D handle it was a bear to get the psi up to where it would stop climbing.

I think BB runs a 36" on a 8000. I am trying to decide on which 36" 3/8 116DL chain to start with on this saw. Full Skip or Full Comp. I'm sort of thinking full skip.

I'd go full skip.  Chip clearance gets to be a problem with full comp over 28" or so.  Worse with some woods (like Doug Fir) than others however.  Also.........................full skip means a lot less cutters to file.8)
-Aaron

For older saws:
Tune the H side so that it 4-strokes (burbles) at WOT unloaded and just cleans up when under load.
When you lift cutting load, the saw should immediately revert to 4-stroking.  Fine tune the transition point for the wood you're cutting.

That was my thinking too. I know my 32" full skip square was out cutting my full comp square on my ported 066. IMO it shouldnt have but it was.

Looks like Oregon 72 JGX will be the choice. http://www.oregonproducts.com/pdfs/72LGX_A107022-AH_low-res.pdf

Wonder if Carlton has a full skip 3/8 050 chain.     @Nathaniel Vansickle

Time to do some more searching.
