Title: 12" picco stihl 026
Post by: Cut4fun . on December 18, 2015, 12:48:15 pm
Any ideas on a 12" 44dl 45dl bar for a 026?  No such animal as I can find.  Thinking of using a old bar and make my own.

Found a 12" picco bar that will work on a 026 mount when modified. Just need to open the slot, elongate bar tensioner hole and oiler hole.  8)

Kev, I did the same for an 026. Take care not to delaminate the bar when grinding the heel and slot.   Those plastic inserts at the oil hole tends to melt with grinding heat.

Thanks for the heads up. 

I have tossed some good laminated bars in past trying to do stuff with them in past.  Had a few that worked out great too.

Cut I have a 12" Picco bar you can use if you mess up the one you have, when you modify it to fit the 026. That seems to be a good bit of work to make it fit just looked at the 026 I have with that bar. Oil hole, tensioner hole and stud slot. Would you like me to try and mod mine. I got the bars from a dealer for like $10 bucks a piece. They just wanted them gone.

You have a 12" picco 050 44dl extra to do this to?    If so yes.  I may need to drill one extra bar tensioner hole to use the 45dl chain too.

Let me know and Thanks.

I have to do all my stuff by hand mostly, you?  Using File, drill, grinder, dremel etc.

Yes on the bar and yes on the by hand. I will have some time over the next couple of days to do it. It is a wet sloppy mess here.

Cut if it looks good to you. I will get it shipped out tomorrow.

Is that where a 44dl fits, shown?  Also oiler holes line up?   Do you have a 45dl to test fit?

That looks sweet and way better then my hack redneck job I would have done.

I can add a link and make sure but it should work just fine for a 45dl chain. The bar is almost all the back touching on the front bar stud. so there is alot of forward movement to go. I drilled new oil feed holes. I will put a chain on and run it tomorrow just to make sure they line up. Yes that is a 44DL chain on in the picture.

Sweet Thank You for doing this and saving me all the work.

I wore my ole azz out today doing these chains today.  Like 25 on off chains,  was on 3rd tank and 2 or so bar oil.   

Was fun though.  Just got in a rhythm.

Just leave as is. It might work out like the 44dl 45dl did on my echo today. Was able to run both on the 1 tensioner hole.

The tensioner hole in the tail closest to the sprocket is for the small mount. The two forward holes are for the large mount it should work no problem. I will send it out tomorrow. once you have it if you need to mod it more no worries. It sure does look funny to have that small of a bar on a 026. I will pay shipping to you no worries. Thanks for putting this chain build off together. I am interested to see the results from today but it maybe a whole different story with 50cc driving the chain.

Wow nice job there jmester.

Thank you. The hardest part is trying to keep the slot straight up the bar. I made a template on the 3003 bar tail. Line up the template with end of the bar and marked out the width and length of the slot. Also marked the tensioner holes. I had to measure out for the oil holes. Used a grinder with a cut off wheel for the rough in. Then did the rest with a flat file. Fun little project.

I hope so. just not sure when. I waited to late in the year to try and sell my equipment. Think it will sell better in the spring. Also we my not be going all the way to the left coast. We are planning on home schooling our kids. Looks like there are some better states south and west of you.
