The high output oiler makes a big difference on a 36” . Chain does not stretch or overheat half as much

Fair enough if you have tried it, I was just thinking that 36" is top of normal bar range for a 660.

I ran a 42 inch sugi hara bar on a 660 with an alaskan for a while, it could manage it, just. Had an auxiliary oiler on the alaskan but did use the same bar for cross cutting a few big butts. it oiled enough with the standard pump but was very much on its limit.

It's back on a 32 bar now since I got an 880 and I doubt I'll ever use the 42 on it again.

The weight of the solid sugi bar made it unbalanced too.

ive seen a video on this site of someone modifying the factory fitted oil pump to pump more oil. For the life of me i cant find it but a google search shows forums with pictures of what to do.

There's a stop pin that you punch in to let the adjuster turn a bit further on some big saws
