What Grandpa said!

I didn’t think about someone not turning the bar over. That was ingrained in my when I was young.

Also, get a good flat file and keep the edge of the bar cleaned up smooth. If you can feel a bur with you finger nail, file it down. That’s where the edge of the chain rides and where a lot of wear comes from.

Make sure you grease the front sprocket and keep it greased. That little bearing takes a lot of stress. If you know how to hammer rivets, you can replace a bad OEM sprocket with a really good roller sprocket which will take moe abuse, but still needs to be greased.
