I tried a 60 DL chain on that Frankenbar but ran out of adjustment. The only thing that bothers me is that the throat of the bar was tapered down for a 7 pin .325 rim so it is a little small for a 7 pin 3/8" rim. The 111i has had a 8 pin X .325 rim on it all its life until a couple weeks ago. I had been running a John Deere bar on it for a couple years and it was small too. The .325 chain never jumped off the bar for me. So far the 3/8" chain has not jumped.

I happened to see, some time later, a short chain hanging on my 3/8 X 60 nail. It was 59 DL's and fit up pretty good but it had been rock'd. I have no clue where it came from? I think it was on a Homelite 150XL a guy gave me? The chain has straight raker posts, it is not made like the current Oregon 3/8" semi chisel chain.
We should share what we know... someone may learn...
