If they broke of but still have the bolt sticking out just use a stud remover or get two nuts and screw the first nut on and screw the 2nd nut tight to the first one then use the first nut to loosen, or Rockymountainatv.com sells kit for that.

Janome Juno 3434d wont make a chain


If it was hitting before you stopped, it's likely that the looper either got bent or was knocked out of time. I would take it in for repair.

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.

Okay. Thanks to Guru, the handlebars were easy to fix. Maybe shouldn't try to ride this thing daily on the road, because now the chain came off. I put it back on, but need to see if there is an easy way...


hi, it sounds to me like the bike has been ridden hard and needs the chain replacing due to it strecthing. on the swing arm at the back is their two bolts sticking out the end of each swing arm their should be one in one side of the swing arm and one in the other side of the swing arm, this is right at the very back of the swing arm.
if you find these then these are the adjusters for the back wheel you then need to loosen the back wheel bolt but dont take it out then adjust these adjusters by the same amount do it in half a turn a time you need to do both the same else the back wheel wont be level keep tightening them in and this will then pull the wheel back and this will tighten the chain if its all ready adjusted fully then the chain is scrap and needs replacing, if you dont have adjusters then the chain needs replacing, it will keep coming off if its slack

you can cause damage to the bike if the chain comes off whilst riding at speed so it may be best to get the chain before you use the bike

Chain broke and the new one wont quite fit how do i adjust the back wheel to make it fit, do I have to loosen the big lug b4 adjusting the screws


The large axle bolt holds the wheel in place. The adjusters are only used for setting the position of the wheel , mainly for chain and sprocket alignment. First remove the cotter pin and loosen the large nut on the axle bolt. Now you can loosen the adjuster bolts and slide the wheel forward. If you have the correct length chain for the sprockets every thing should fit perfectly. When you unhook the old master link do not remove the chain. Hook the new chain to the old chain using the old master link ( do not lock it on) just use it to pull the chain around the front sprocket. This will save you having to take off the front sprocket cover. I usually find it helpful to count the links on the old chain and lay the chains side by side to make sure the new chain does not get cut too short. If the chain is too short , you may have to get another master link and add some chain back in to get the correct length. Hope this helps.

I have a qualcast 35s petrol lawnmower and i cant stop the blades going round when i start it it on tick over, it allways seem to be driven


Hi, first of all I would check that the cutting cylinder is correctly adjusted, i,e, just kissing the bottom blade.dont forget to re-adjust the chain. next i would remove the four engine mounting bolts and slide the engine away from the clutch drum so that you can check if the clutch shoes are binding on the spindles, if the spindles are rusty centrifugal force will throw the shoes outward to engage the drum but the springs wont be able pull the shoes back.try wd40 on the pins while trying GENTLY to revolve the shoe round the pin, hope this helps

1982 Suzuki GS650G timing chain install


it is possible to unlink the timing chain. I dont really recommend it, but I have done it before with no problems. if you can get ahold of a small chain breaker you can use that to press one of the pins out of the chain. you may be able to find one at a hardware store. then, use the same breaker to press the pin back into the chain. you MUST be sure that it fits tightly though, so the pin doesnt try to back out later down the road. this is what I did...for a loose fitting pin, I used a hammer with a punch to "mushroom" the ends of the pin so it cant back out. I had a friend hold the metal end of a small sedge hammer against the chain, while I used the punch and hammer on the other end, then we switched sides. Im not too familiar with your engine, but in general, you dont have to remove the crank to replace the timing chain. usually, just removing the clutch basket gives you enough access to replace it. on certain models though, the cases may be in the way, and removing the crank may be necessary. but before you break the chain or pull the crank, check to see if its possible to install a chain by just removing the clutch basket, and if necessary, the gears on the end of the crank.

How do you adjust the tension on the timing chain for a honda Xl185S?


Hi blazinj
To adjust your cam chain.if you remove the small bolt in the top of the tensioner lock nut there is a 3mm thread in the adjuster rod.get your self a long 3mm screw or possibly a spoke (i use a tail lamp screw)thread it into the adjuster. Start the motor and with it idling undo the lock bolt(14mm head) and pull up on the screw just enough to get rid of the rattle. Dont overdo it. Then tighten down the locker. remove the screw, and refit the cover. Done. Dont forget to rate me for the advice. Cheers

The chain on my Remington electric saw keeps jumping the sprocket. Solution? Thanks.


Depending to what model you have, the Sprocket cover tab (located on the round part of the sprocket cover) isn’t inserted into the saw body tab slot. Or your cahin is not tensioned properly. According to the manufacturer... "The adjusting block on the adjusting screw isn’t inserted into the adjusting hole on the guide bar. Reinstall and align the sprocket cover by first removing the sprocket cover from the saw. Turn tensioning screw on the sprocket cover counter-clockwise until it stops. Pull guide bar away from saw body to remove slack from chain. Insert sprocket cover tab into saw body tab slot and lower sprocket cover into guide bar bolt. Finger tighten guide bar nut onto guide bar bolt. Slowly push guide bar toward saw body until adjusting block on the adjusting screw drops into round adjusting hole on the guide bar. Securely tighten guide bar nut after properly tensioning saw chain." If these tips do not work, you may need a new chain. You can order an new chain on-line at www.masterparts.net. I hope this helps you!

HELLO; Heres all you should have to do this,set your quad up on a atv jack or on a milk cartoon.Loosen the four bolts that hold the rear bearing carrior and back off your adjusters then push the carrier forward till it stops,relay your chain and adjust it leaveing a little slack, tighten your mounting bolts then, something I do, spin the rear tires to see if the slack is right if not loosen the bolts and proceed again with the proceedure turning out the adjusters a little more look at the chain as you dothis and you will see the slack in the chain on the top. GOOD LUCK.

49cc kids ATV trouble shooting


in order to tighten your chain you can take a link off which would involve using a grinder, if you dont have one than go to an atv store and ask them to do it. theres a clip on the chain which holds it togther, remove the clip without damaging it than just pop the link off. that will take the chain off. i dont know what type off atv you have so there are probably bolts that hold pull the back end to tighten the chain look for those and if you can find them than tighten them.

for your engine do an oil change and drain out the carborator. if you need more help let me know.
