There is a thread on the oregon 76 chain in the bar chain area here. I had a lot of NOS 76 chain and stihl chain in same type stuff.  I tried the 76 on a new 550 with 20".   Still wasnt happy. Just to long of bar for 50cc.

IIRC there was also McCulloch branded Oregon 76 for a time as well.  Do you still have that NOS 76 chain Kevin?

Nope it was all sold for the chassis for race chains.  72 cutters used on 76 chassis.

You can still get the SL if you search real close.  I passed on a roll of LG last year year before. Dont know if they still got it or not.

I don't want SL, as I'm not breaking down chains to make race chain....................and I don't want to bother with grinding off a buncha shark fins.  Will do so if/when I can't find any more 76LG (or the Stihl version).  Wish the racers would just gobble up the SL and leave the 76LG alone.....:D

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.

Interesting, I just picked up a nice 2300AV with the "banana tip" 16" bar, but it's running an Oregon #91  3/8 .050 56DL chain.

Few 3/8LP I had.   10" to 16" I think
