I think from memory you can use either a .060 or .063 on the 460 rancher. Do you have a Manual?
Can't help with the leak as I think mine leaks as it was designed to do.

lots of chain saws leak bar oil from the outlet to the bar.

Both my stihl saws leak bar oil if they are left with oil in the tank..the smaller more than the larger.

The bar oil pumps in these machines are fairly simple affairs with no tap or check valve to stop oil comming out when not in opperation.

same saws are worse than others because of the way the parts of the saws are arranged in relation to the tank.

I am resolved that I must store my machines on some sort of tray or box with some absorbent material in the bottom


as for the bars and chains.......unless you are doing high performance stuff or milling....the general consensus is that chain saws work best with the bar and chain they came with.

running a longer bar or a wider chain my simply provide more load than the motor is designed for......cutting efficiency suffers.

I have several mates with saws modified for milling.....that is a whole other game.
