Go buy a can of PB Blaster and soak the bolt overnight. If that doesn't loosen it then heat the thread area (carefully) with a small propane torch. To prevent this from happening again you should as part of your regular maintenance, take the adjuster bolts out and coat them with anti-seize to prevent electrolysis between the steel bolt and the aluminum swingarm,,,

How to install a new blade for my 10 inch electric chainsaw - model 358-34010


Loosen the chain adjuster and remove the bar bolts. Remove the side cover. Remove the existing chain. Thread the new chain over the sprocket making sure the drive cogs are engaging the sprocket correctly, then thread it over the end of the bar ensuring the drive cogs are inserted correctly in the bar groove. Install the bar/chain onto the bolts aligned with the chain adjustment pin and install the cover. Snug the bolts and tighten the chain with the guide bar tip elevated. Once you are satisfied with the chain tension, tighten the bar bolts and....... VOILA.... you are done. Head for that pesky neighbors tree that drops leaves in your yard.....

Of course, make sure the chain orientation is correct !!!! I have seen them installed backwards on the shelf in the big box stores....

Husqvarna 50 chain keeps coming off


Are you adjusting the chain tension correctly?? Make sure the bar in installed correctly with the tension adjustment pin in the appropriate hole. Elevate the tip of the guide bar while adjusting the chain adjustment screw until the chain is snug but not tight. Then tighten the bar bolts without lowering the tip of the bar. Also ensure the drive links are engaging the sprocket correctly.

If the chain is adjusted correctly and the problem still exists, remove the sprocket side cover, bar and chain and inspect the sprocket for extreme wear. Once the sprocket is worn excessively it won't want to engage the drive links of the chain correctly which could be the source of the problem. If so, replace both the sprocket and the chain because the excess wear of the sprocket could have damaged the drive links of the chain and putting an old worn chain back on with a new sprocket will cause the new sprocket to begin wearing prematurely.

How to bypass ignitino on gsx650f


Instructions
    • 1 Measure the chain's tension with a ruler. Move the center point of the bottom half of the drive chain with your hand. Take a measurement of the chain's movement as you push the chain up and down as far as it will go. The chain should have a free range of movement between 0.8 to 1.2 inches. If the chain's free range is greater than 1.2 inches, you need to tighten the chain. Alternatively, loosen the chain if it has less than 0.8 inches of free movement.
    • 2 Loosen the large nut on the left side of the rear axle with a 32 mm socket and a socket wrench. If more leverage is needed to loosen the nut, use a long-handled breaker bar.
    • 3 Loosen the chain adjuster blocks on both side of the rear swing arm with a pair of 10 mm wrenches. Hold the blocks' adjustment bolt's head steady with one wrench and loosen the bolt's lock nut with the other wrench.
    • 4 Turn both adjustment bolts an equal number of turns with a 10 mm wrench to adjust the chain's tension. Turn the adjustment bolts clockwise to loosen the chain, or counterclockwise to tighten the chain. Check that the edge of both chain adjuster blocks are evenly aligned with the adjustment marks imprinted on the swing arm.
    • 5 Check the chain's range of free movement again. Make adjustments as needed until the chain has a free range of movement between 0.8 and 1.2 inches.
    • 6 Hold the adjustment bolts steady with a 10 mm wrench and tighten their lock nuts against the chain adjuster blocks with a second 10 mm wrench. Tighten the axle nut to 72.5 foot-pounds with a 32 mm socket and a torque wrench. Check the chain's tension again.

How do I assemble the bar and chain on my 1.5hp chain saw MS1415?


Start by removing the bar nut/nuts, and remove the side cover, if the chainbrake is in the cover make sure this is off by pulling the hand guard fully back to the top handle, before removing the side cover, wind the chain adjuster screw fulley in toward the rear of the saw ( it may be in the crankcse, or in the side cover ) now assemble the guide bar onto the bar bolt/bolts, loop the cutter chain over the sprocket,and into around the tip of the guide bar, and into the bar rails, make sure the sharp end of the cutters on the top of the guide bar are facing away from the saw ( the chain rotates clockwise as you look at it ) now align the adjuster hole in the bar with the adjuster pawl on the machine, now re fit the side cover, if the adjuster pawl is in the cover make sure this lines up with the adjuster hole in the bar, assemble the bar nut/nuts finger tight, adjust the chain so as it touches all the way around the guide bar ( not sagging on the bottom of the bar ) with a gloved hand pull the chain around the bar to make sure it is free and sitting in the sprocket correctly, re adjust the chain if required, now lift the nose of the bar and fully tighten the bar nut/nuts

How do i put a chain back on a chainsaw?


Locate the bolts on the bar, down close to the engine. Loosen them. locate the chain tensioning adjustment, again, close to the engine, but on the other side. Loosen it also. Place your chain on the bar and on the sprocket. Tighten the bolts enough to take the slack out of the bar, but not so much that you cannot use the adjustment tensioning screw. Tighten up on the tension adjustment until the tension on the chain is right, and then tighten the bolts.

Make sure the chain brake is released. Remove the two cover bolts completely and back off the chain adjustment screw several turns. All of this should release the cover. Make sure the chain teeth cut toward you on the bottom run. When adjusting the chain, leave the cover screws finger tight, and turn the adjusting screw CW to bring the chain up to the lower bar run, but not so tight that the chain cannot be moved by hand. Tighten the cover screws and recheck chain tension. When running, hold the bar tip near some cardboard while running at speed--it should throw off a thin line of oil onto the board. Hope this helps!

Adjust primary chain on a harley davidson motorcycle


after safely supporting rear wheel off ground, remove small inspection cover from primary cover. rotate rear wheel until primary chain is at tightest point. cold engine- chain free play should be 5/8" - 7/8", hot engine should be 3/8" - 5/8". to adjust, loosen primary chain adjuster shoe nut (bolt head is similar to a carriage bolt-square head), sometimes you will need to tap bolt end to free up adjuster, as it sits in grooces to hold at desired level. adjust to desired tension and tighten bolt to 22-29 ft/lbs. then recheck chain freeplay after rotating rear wheel at least one full revolution. If OK, reinstall cover.

My chaindsaw runs but the chain will not turn it came off put it back on but it is acting like it is siezed


By runs I am assuming that when the chain is the clutch spins with the engine; if that is the case...
1. When properly adjusted you can pull the chain up off of the bar to see 1 full and two partial tooth guides.
If the chain is adjusted properly
2.Check the bar tip roller to make sure it rolls.,
If that is ok
3. Take the bar and chain off and use one tooth guide to go all the way around the bar to make sure the slot is not crimped shut somewhere.
If 2 or 3 are at fault replace the bar.
Did you know most chainsaw pro's recommend you replace the clutch outer (the sproket part) AND the bar after the 3rd chain replacement or anytime the bar or clutch are replaced for any reason. I live by it and never have trouble with the bar, chain or clutch.

GZ250 noise problem. Hi I hace a GZ250 marauder 2000 and when i ride up a hill or when i push the bike for more power it makes a clunking metal noise like a cog is slipping.could you help me please.


You might find that is your problem. If you look at the chain cogs and see that the teeth are pointed at the end you need to buy new cogs and a new chain. If the tips still heve straight edges, your chain could be very loose. Either way you need to sort out the problem as a broken chain at high speed is no fun. To adjust the chain, loosen the rear wheel and turn the adjusters to tighten the chain until you have about 3/4 inch freeplay. Make sure that the indicators on the side are against the same marks to ensure that the wheel is straight.

To replace the cogs and chain remove the back wheel and tap down the tabs that are used to lock the bolts in place and undo the bolts. To remove the front cog to will need to take off the cover. If your chain does not have a master link, the easiest way to remove it is to cut it off. Unless you knoe how many teeth your gos have, take them and the chain into a bike shop to get the right parts.

How do I thighten the chain on a 99 Kawasaki ZRX1100


Near the back of the rear sprocket assy you will see a bolt facing forward. This bolt, when tightened, tightens the chain and visa-versa. To adjust the bolt, loosen the locking nut a just a little bit then adjust the bolt itself. It is best to make this adjustment while the rear wheel is off the ground, so you can spin the wheel and feel for chain tension. Once you have adjusted the chain tension to where you can just barely wiggle it 1/4" tighten the locking nut back against the frame. It is important to get this nut tight, as if it loosens, so will your chain.

Don't overtighten the chain as you will wear it out more quickly and wear down the sprocket teeth (expensive repair). Too loose and you risk a chain skip at high torque.
