    Does anyone know of a drum that is 3/8 that will fit my 420? I have a .325 clutch drum on it atm and can’t find a 3/8 drum or part number that will fit it anywhere. Btw I am in the uk.

    Cheers

    Want to fit this bar to the saw as I love the way a 3/8lp works on a ms241.

    You need the sprocket from the Ps-350 as they can be supplied in 3/8 lp . Same saw as the ps-420/421 but 35 cc top end.
    @ajschainsaws ...Andrew may be able to help you.

    Convert to PS-5101 drum to utilize rim sprockets!
    If memory serves You need a PS-5101 drum and a 0.2mm washer.

    Andrew @ajschainsaws should be able to get You sorted.

    There is still a issue with the 3/8 lp rim to fit on the sprocket drive over here Wilhelm. Stihl Pico 3/8 is the only rim (at the moment but may be changing !!) and will not fit as standard so the least line of resistance is to go with Dolmars own 3/8 lp sprocket for now or do as you suggest and upgrade to the Ps-5105 rim and sprocket drive sticking with .325.

    I agree with you Wilhelm, going to rim and sprocket is a good thing. The ease of supply is just the pain for the 3/8 Lp rim making it NA until we can sort out a proper supply in the UK.
    I have returned my own saw back to .325 from 3/8 lp and am using the Rim and Sprocket from the Ps-5105 . In reality I find .325 narrow kerf performs really well on the upgrade so no regrets not using 3/8 lp. Shame about Sugi Hara bar and chains being redundant ...for the time being.

    Am I right in thinking that this p/n is the correct one for the ps430 with 3/8”??

    Been trying the rim sprocket route but no progress , GB realise 3/8 lo pro is different from 3/8 In standard drive by making a purpose built 3/8 lo pro sprocket for bigger saws

    But aren’t interested in a small drive purpose built 3/8 lo pro rim
