Sthil MS250 guide bar

Recommended Posts

If anyone can help me out here, I’ve ordered an 18inch guide bar and chain for my ms250.  Would this guide bar and chain be too much strain on the engine when cutting? The saw has a very used 16” bar on at the moment and is in need of changing plus it needs a new chain as well. Thanks

If you only cut 15" logs it won't be a problem.
I run 18" on my 261.
If it starts to bog regularly, try changing the depth gauges to 0.5mm.
It will cut slightly slower, but won't put as much stress on the components.
Keep your chains sharp at all times.
That will be the biggest difference.

These are photos of my new guide bar and chain, on trying to fit these items I’m finding they will not fit. The guide bar will fit with the adjustment screwed back as far has it will go but when trying to fit the chain things aren’t fitting like they should.

 

these are supposed to be the right bar and chain for the MS250 but with these items not being Stihl’s bar and chain would this make a difference.

Your right Conner one phone call and they are sorting it out, longer chain needed 69 links and not the 67 links that was sent with the bar. 

 

Alls well that ends well 👍

One call to Northern Arb Supplies and they sent me out a new chain with 69 links instead of 67 and it fits perfectly. I need to sort out a 24inch bar and chain for the 044 when I get the flywheel key fixed.
