Oregon Bar & Chain Selector
Select "Husqvarna; 455; 24"; All; All; All" and make your choice. A couple of things to consider, it only returns 3/8 pitch chain, 0.325 is also available. I ordered a 24" bar for my 359, a Carlton that only takes 81 drive links (82 is normal). I saved $20 by ordering that bar, I just have to be careful when ordering chain. I prefer Stihl chain to Oregon. My Husky is maintained by Stihl mechanics and gets Stihl 2-cycle oil; please do not tell her, she may never run for me again. LOL

What Stihl chain should actually go with this bar?

Almost all of the Stihl bars that use 3/8" pitch chain on the 3003 mount bars use .050 gauge.
Where the bar says 3/8, it should also list the gauge and number of drive links. Sometimes these are worn off though. The 25" bar should take 84 drive links. (same as most 24" bars in other brands)

How to replace chain on chain saw?

you have to loosen your bar nuts. then there is a chain tentioner screw either on the front of the saw or on the side between the bar nuts. turn this screw until the chain is drooping fron bottom of bar. remove the bar nuts, cover, then the bar and chain. make sure the the cutters on the new chain face forward when installed. tighten tensioner screw until chain is snug against bar then replace cover and bar nuts. readjust chain if it is loose. lift unit from handle forcing tip of bar up. this takes away any chance of play in the bar.tighten bar nuts when satisfied that chain is tight. when properly installed you should be able to pull chain upward fron bar and the drive links should not come over the rail guide.

I have a Poulan 295. I needed to replace the chain. It is a 20" chain. There is bar oil in the resevoir. The chain will not stay on the bar (it seems loose even when fully tightened). I replaced...

If you replaced the bar AND the chain, you'll need to make sure the chain is the correct chain for the particular bar you've used. If you're only replacing the chain, you need to make sure the chain has the same # of drive links as your old chain (maybe one or two more, if you've had some removed because of chain stretch).

On that particular model, for a 20" chain, you could have a 78 OR 80 drive link chain (drive links being the part of the chain that rides in the groove of the bar). The correct drive link count is determined by the bar you've installed and should have been made clear by whoever you purchased the bar from. Some brands use an 80 drive link chain, but MOST use the 78 drive link chain.

If the bar you purchased uses the 78 drive link chain, but you have an 80 drive link chain, then no matter how far out you adjust the bar, you may not get the chain tight enough. PartsBuggy shows a listing of which bars use the 78 drive link chains here.

What is the longest bar i can go on my 455 rancher saw ?

Available power and the amount of oil may both be a limiting factors. Your oiler has a 3 position adjustment (as do most intermediate level Huskies) with 20" being the longest recommended. My 359 is virtually the same and I run a 24" Carlton bar on mine with no problem. If you opt for a longer bar let the saw determine cutting speed. Come on over, my bar and chain will fit your saw, try it before you buy it. If you have an acquaintance with a 24" small mount Husky bar that is probably a good idea. I would likely not recommend a 24" bar if regularly cutting Oak or a hard wood, I do a lot of Fir.
