I am wanting to run a 16'' 3/8 .050 K041 bar on my 330 and have had no luck finding one...can anybody have a good one to let go or can anyone provide a link on this wonderful internet where to get one. I have had no luck.

This here is a 16" K041 mount bar for Poulans.   The number on the bar is 530044556.   You can google this number and it should get help you get into something.  I forgot to add it is .050 and 3/8.

John just recently there were a few new 3/8-.050G K041 bars on feebay.  Gotta be careful that you don't buy a 3/8LP bar however.   Many 16-20" K041/A041 bars intended for WildThing type saws are LP.

You can also use a K095 ('small Husky') bar if you modify it a bit.  Just have to oblong the adjuster holes a tad (towards the bar rail) and slot a passage from the groove to the adjuster holes (as K041 saws oil through the adjuster holes).  Did that with a Husqvarna branded .325-.058G Oregon Power Match bar for my PP330.  Used a dremel with a reinforced cutoff wheel to slot down from the groove into the adjuster holes.

Oils fine.  Had to file the stud slot just a hair as well as it was TIGHT on the studs.  Also have to 'aim' the tensioner peg so that it goes into the adjuster hole as the peg 'sags' down a bit when there isn't a bar on the saw.  A little prod with the screwdriver was all it took.



 This is what I did with my 2800,3000,3300 and my 3.3 in .325 but I cannot find a 16'' in 3/8 for my 330 with the husky lable.

A few months ago there was a guy selling a bunch of 'shelf worn' NOS laminated Husky labeled ProLite 3/8-.050 16" and 18" bars on feebay.

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.

Pretty dang good day.  Sold a couple bars and file guides.  Turned the $ around into a 1998 poulan 3450 with green tank.

Yes I drove 5mins for this saw.  :D :D :D

Nice looking saw Kevin.   Sounds like you did alright even if you did have to drive 5 minutes for it.

The funny thing I was just showing member squarefile the 60cc 3450 project on the shelf.  Told him it would be cheaper to buy a whole parts saw then the individual parts I was needing ( all covers etc). 
Come in the house and start looking on puter and bam a runner FS.  I called, he said starts. All I needed to hear and headed over.  Cool part is seller hits auctions all the time to flip. I made sure he ran certain saws by me before listing. 

Pics above as seller listed pics.

Wow very nice under the grime. Just a 5min wipe down and a 30min check over. Only thing I might replace is the rim. Just because it shows a little wear but not wore out.

Pics loading.  From open as is to putting back together to test run.   I dont know what gas the guy put in it but boy she smoked. I pour it out for a look see in pic. Put mine in and ran it till the smoking died off.   :D
