Chainsaw chain dull in no time

It wasn’t rude but I didn’t want to say anything & to see if you spotted it first.

No need was meant to mean that a photo wouldn’t be of use as I think I’ve found the issue.
In the bar are two holes.
The top hole is where the oil feed is supplied for the bar & the lower hole is the position for the adjustment screw to locate into.
Is it defiantly the right bar for the saw?
The oil hole is normally a small hole , one each side for when you flip the bar

I had originally fitted a 52 link chain as at the time i was unable to locate a 53 link chain.
This then made the bar come back slightly.
Now ive managed to locate the 53 link chain i fitted it up & took the photo.
Also did the same with the 52 link chain.

The hole in the bar is blocked when the 52 chain is fitted but aligns correctly when the 53 chain is fitted.

This is the reason why no or next to no oil was on the bar.
My mistake from the start for using the 52 link chain even though it fitted.

Many thanks for the comments & advice
Just a follow up in this post.
I’ve been using this 53 link chain for quite a while & still working great.

Today spent at least 2 hours cutting 5 / 6 inch stumps & no signs of it be blunt.
