You talkin' about an Oregon replacement drum/sprocket setup for the 028? Or just any Oregon box? (There'd hafta be two different ones for the 028 since there were two plunger and worm types along with the oil pump covers themselves). And what's so bad about the oil pump? Pretty straightforward for the most part with the later version seeming to be a reliable pump. The 028 Super wasn't a bad saw at 51cc's.
But what box are we talkin' about here?
This inside of the Oregon PowerMate box

Gotcha. I thought they only illustrated the different applications for the type that was in the box until I just now pulled this outta the trash for a 106593X I recently got on the bay for a 372. Last one I got was for a 61 and only had the variations for that. Wonder if they have this somewhere with the part# series that goes with the lettering scheme? Ah hell, nevermind. That's too much thinkin'. Back to chewin' aluminum foil....

I’m wondering if it’s a 044 mag?
That mag decal adds like 10hp doesn’t it?

The letter you need is the big one on the outside of the box.
Start at the top. Why they didn't go left to right instead of up to down is for the high priced suits to tell us both.

I like em, but I'm pretty weird. Strong saw that's a pretty heavy by today's top handle standards. I like the swept back top handle for a coupe reasons, especially for access to the oil and fuel caps. (Echo pretty much copies it with their latest top handle saws). Workin' on em can be a challenge unless you've been into one before..., particularly the throttle arrangement.
