Chain has to match the bar. And the bar is shown as a 16 inch bar. What is the length of the bar, from the tip. to the other end. Bar can be 12 , 14, 16, 0r 18 inch. Looks like the standard is a 16 inch bar.

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I am not sure about the bar. When the chain broke I measured the length of the chain and it is 24" so I am guessing about 8" for the bar. It is the chain that I need. I though I should get a second chain in case another chain might break. If you can send me two chains send them to ... P.O. Box 605, Scott City, KS 67871.
Thank you.

The bar would be at least a12-inch bar. You want the correct one, so the bar needs to be measured, then the correct chain can be ordered. Or you could get a matching bar and chain.
