    No kidding. One loops is 72 dl and the other is 81. I wouldn't be very happy with that guy anymore.

    Kinda depends here....Was the OP carrying his saw in or just asking for a 3/8 chain for a 20" bar? Here I prefer for the customer to bring in their saws so I can verify their setups especially if they are new to me as I keep records of the saws and setups. I have numerous times found miss-matched components.

    Fair comment. Not clear if the OP mentioned the problem, or if the dealer noted him coming in frequently for the same part; might be different people at the counter.

    You sound like a dealer that might ask.

    Sorry men. I have bought the saw there and I use to give my name and get a new chain and be gone. Now new people but i didn't think and check. My thinking is still 3/8 = .325 , but I just counted DL and wouldn't 81 DL on a 74 DL 20 inch bar tell me something? But Hey I'm not the sharpest barble.

    You can also look at the bar and match up the DL for the chain.
    Just mentioning it.
