Post chainsaw will not cut straight

I have a 268 Husqvarna that cuts to the left.I repaced the bar chain spocket and the new chain is worse.Tight or loose chain still the same.

Welcome to the forums!

Did you replace the bar also?

With a new chain and bar, you either have hit something on one side of the chain, dulling the chisels on that side only or otherwise damaged the chain/bar, or you have a defective chain/bar. I don't see any other way it could be anything else.

I agree w/ Cheese. If you look closely at the chain cutters I think you'll find the right side(looking from the engine) cutters are dull/ damaged.
