Throttle mechanism will not move.

Try 'break free' or any kind of penetrating spray around the throttle. Give it 15 min to soak in and try it again. Make sure you are pushing/tapping on the moving part and not the stationary piece. Should be another linage from there to the actual carb. Check that it is free and moving easily. Cable problems usually are inside the cabel,rust etc that binds the cable but you should be able to move the actuator w/a pliers with the cable unattached. Good luck

Hot bar loose chain

Remove the bar and chain from the engine. Clean the side of the engine where the bar fits, start the engine and run fast for several moments. Oil should ooze out of a port and run down the engine side. If nothing, then the oil lines, valves, tank filter, and the oil pump (behind the clutch assembly) should be checked for plugging, breakage, or other problems. If oil comes out, then clean the oil holes in the bar drive end including the two small holes that lead from the larger holes out to the chain groove on each side. Clean the entire chain groove. Oil and check the end sprocket for smooth, relatively free turning. Compressed air is very useful for cleaning these parts. Reassemble bar and chain making sure the adjustment tang drops into one of the large holes--you may have to back off the adjustment several turns to make this work. Make sure the chain cuts toward you on the bottom run and install the clamp nuts/bolts finger tight. Adjust the chain until it pulls up to the bar and you can turn the chain by hand. Run a line of oil around the chain to pre-lube it. Tighten the clamp nuts and retest the tension again. If ok, start the engine and run for several minutes, then place the tip near some cardboard and run at speed for several moments--it should throw off a thin line of oil. Make sure the chain is fully sharpened then try a few cuts. It should cut smoothly without any undue pressure from you. Hope this helps!

I have a Poulan 18" chainsaw. Dispite my best efforts to tighten the chain, it keeps slipping off of the bar. I can use it for about 30 seconds, then the chain slips off.

Make sure the chain brake is off (pull it toward you), then remove the bar mounting nut(s)/bolt(s) and the remove the side cover, bar, and chain. Clean the oil passages in the rear of the bar including two small passages that run from the larger holes out to the chain groove on each side. Clean the entire chain groove and make sure the end sprocket turns freely and is well oiled. Clean the engine face where the bar fits, then start the engine. Oil should ooze out of a small port in the engine case. If ok, then lay out the chain so that it can be inspected for bent links, dry/sticking joints, or missing/badly worn drive teeth. Inspect the sprocket on the clutch outer drum component for wear or damaged teeth. Make sure the pitch of the chain teeth match those of the drive sprocket (is this a new chain?). Check the hub bearing of the clutch drum for obvious wear. If all looks good, fit the chain around the clutch sprocket, then slip the bar into the the engine mounting space and work the chain over the entire bar. When setting the outer cover, make sure the adjuster tang fits into the related bar hole, then attach the clamp nut(s)/bolt(s), run up finger tight. Use the adjuster to set the chain tension--it should just pull the lower part of the chain up to the bar plus a little more. Check that you can move the chain by hand without any binding, then tighten the clamp bolts/nuts firmly. Recheck that the chain is properly tensioned. If not, re-loosen the clamp fasteners and re-tension the chain. When the clamp fasteners are tight, the tension must be rechecked. Hope this long-winded response helps!

Im trying to replace the swingarm

Is it a through bolt? Does it spin on one end while turning the other? Put the nut back on and tap it with a lead hammer, see if it is just a big bolt, then drive it out the rest of the way with a dowel. Hope this helps.

What is the easiest way to remove the cylinder head exhaust nut. it wont budge and i dont wanna mess up the whole thing

You probably already tried this stuff already... but id like to offer my 2 cents worth ...

Can you try a penetrating oil product such as Liquid Wrench? Spray it on ... tap (tap with a GOOD rap) the bolt a couple times ... use a long punch and a ball peen hammer. let it set for a while.

Can you get a nut breaker in to that space?

Sometimes, heat will loosen these stubborn nuts but id try the oil first.

Treat with the oil a couple times and let it sit for a while.

Let me know how you make out

Removing chevy venture caliper

Yes it's the right direction but because of so much heating and cooling those bolts get really tight.Spray alot of penetrating oil (WD-40) on and around the bolts.You may even want to tap the wrench on the bolts in the opposite direction slightly (tighten) to help loosen their adherence,then try the right way to losen them.Dont use a torch! It'll melt the "O" ring on the caliper piston.Take your time
