Tip & How-To about Garden
Remove the bar & chain. Affix a piece of tape to or mark one of the upper chain links. Wear gloves, hold the bar parallel with the ground, the nose right, the tail left and the chain in the upper bar groove. Try to slowly rotate the chain CCW one complete revolution. If you cannot, it occasionally rides up and out of the bar groove or it catches there are likely burrs on the drive links.
I find it easiest to remove them by positioning the chain as displayed immediately below, so a file may be used on the exterior of the loop.
Chain Installation & Adjustment
The chainsaw chain links, on the upper part of the bar, must be installed as illustrated immediately above.
