Question about Garden
Your saw is made by Poulan. It is model number PP4218Something. None of Poulans 42 series offer a bar longer than 18".
Oregon offers no bar beyond 18".
I did not see an adjustadle oiler, it is very possible the oiler will not provide enough oil to a longer bar. A longer bar might also be nose heavy and difficult to control.
You can find all poulan PP4218s here:
Poulan.com 14 different models by my count
The dash number of your serial number (true of Poulan, no promises with Craftsman) is the type.

Many time the big chain stores (like Sears, Wal Mart, etc.) will have products made to their own specs (re:cheaper), which makes getting replacement parts difficult at best and impossible at worst. Another reason they do this is so that you won't be able to find the exact same model elsewhere at a better price and force them to match or beat it. It's entirely possible that if you can't find the longer bar & chain at Sears, you won't find it anywhere.
