I know other folks have had this happen as I just sent my last 2 outer bar plates out.

Friend loaned his 500 out to a 21 year old know it all (by friends description) that ran the saw so long the chain had got real loose and came off.  The guy took apart to try and put chain on. Somewhere in all of this the outer bar plate got lost in the field cutting area.

Guy brought in a Partner 500 today that has lost the outer bar plate between clutch cover and bar. Now when he tightens the cover down it somehow is stopping chain from moving.  I never seen this on all the partner 500 5000 jonsered 490 590 poulan 325 I have owned. Personally I used to ditch the outer bar plates myself.

Will dig in later.

I guess it could happen if regular .325 .050 chain is used on a narrow kerf bar. That is known to happen on many saw models.
