Yes, you can use the 16” bar on the 14” chain saw, and visa-versa. Helpful?
Your Echo chainsaw is a two-stroke engine that takes a mixture of unleaded gasoline and two-stroke motor oil at a ration of 50 to 1.
Most chainsaws can operate up to three different bar sizes. Guide bars are measured in length, from the tip of the bar to the heel, and range in size from 14 to over 40 inches. Check the specifications in your model`s operator`s manual to see what size bars you can run on your saw.
Convenience at the touch of a button

A manual fuel pump makes it easier to start STIHL chain saws and power tools and reduces the number of pulls required. Simply press the primer bulb several times before starting.

The fuel and oil mixture should always be 2% (50:1).
For a 50:1 ratio of gas to oil, use 2.6 fluid ounces of oil per gallon of gas.
Typically a chainsaw with a shorter bar around 14” and smaller is enough for property maintenance, trimming, pruning, and cutting down broken tree limbs. On the other hand, cutting down small trees, thick branches, and cleaning up storm damage will need a longer bar around 16”-20” to make the job easier and safer.
Not every bar or chain is right for every saw. For example, larger chainsaw bars work best with more powerful saws because it takes more energy to drive a chain around a long bar. That`s why electric saws use bars 18″ and shorter. Similarly, chainsaw chains are measured to fit certain bars.

Echo chainsaw how do you remove the clutch from an ehco cs400evl?
ANSWER : OK I looked at Echousa.com and see that there shoule be a hex nut on the side where the clutch is. It doesn’t specify whether it is left or right hand thread. but what I used to do is we have a plastic plug to put in the cylinder to stop piston from moving and then putting a ratchet on the hex nut. without the plug you can try an impact wrench to BUMP the nut in forward and reverse to remove it. Make sure the switch is off before attempting either action. You can look at the manual or parts explosion at the site I listed
