I'm going to try and explain this as clear and slowwww as I can so anyone with  any amount of  ;D in their system can understand this, I hope.

I would like to test a 5020 with 325 and 3/8. Then I will be able to show future buyers local a set up in 325 7 and 3/8 7 to test with. Because they will probably want 20" bars being how people are.

I had 2 330 set up one time with 325 7 20" and another with 3/8 7 20". The firewood cutter wanted set up with 325 7 because of the extra torque 325 7 rim gave and forgiveness in the cuts when pushing.

Another wanting limbing saw and light weight bucking homeowner saw. 30cc to 42cc range. I set about 6-7 saws up with 3/8LP and .325 so they could run each to see what they liked.

Hopefully this gets the WHY across. I want to be able to set a 5020 up in 325 and 3/8.

Dont go slow for me, just come on out and say it up front otherwise someone might not understand what your wanting.

First you say you want to try .325 pitch on it, then you say that you would leave it 3/8's! WTF.

Excuse me for understanding what you said and not what you were meaning to say.

Now go and show us how to convert a 5020 to .325 pitch. I dare ya. LOL

MARK! . . .

Cut4fun is out in the shop and he wants to know - did you want him to run the 5020 with .325 X 7 or 8? He doesn't have his lap top with him and he wanted me to ask you? He was talking to me on the speaker phone.

He says he's gonna run the 7 pin rim first if he doesn't hear from you?
We should share what we know... someone may learn...
That knowledge can live after us... and that "Pays It Forward".
Be all that you can be . . .

BB I think a poulan 3000 etc clutch drum would work IF we could find a bearing with 10mm I.D. and fit the O.D. 3000 etc clutch drum.

The guy getting me the 295 4620 clutch drum and bearing measurements dont worry about it. Unless you still want to for informational purposes. I found where Mark tried one and he said it dont work.

Guess we just need to look out of the box sometimes  ;). 3rd saw I grabbed  was a match and worked.  ;D :D

Well I have had enough fun with this challenge. LOL

Sometimes you need to think out of the box and why a team concept trouble shooting works. Just because 1 single person cant find something dont mean its not out there. Throw a few brains together and ask for help and you could be amazed what a team can come up with.
