Please excuse my english.There are two locknuts on the cover of the chain sproket(release them a little)Now you have to find the screw to adjust chain tightening.It is in front or on the right side of the chain cover.For tightening move the screw clockwise andthen tighten the locknuts.

Rancher 460 Chain loose


If you have run out of adjustment there are a number of reasons, wrong drive link count of the chain ( too long ). The chain has stretched due to the machine not oiling correctly, or the tentioner has stripped the thread and is not moving forwaed.

Chain fell off and I can't get it back on.


Turn the saw off. Look for several nuts on the right side of the saw that hold the cover on and the blade to the saw. Loosen these nuts, and before taking the cover off, loosen the chain adjuster by turning it (usually a screw head on the same side, or on the front of the saw as you look down the blade towards the saw.) Loosening the chain adjuster moves a pin that goes into the bar (the part the chain rides around when operating) to push it away from the saw to tighten the chain when you are tightening it. Take the cover off, and put the chain around the sprocket at the back like a bicycle chain, and then while holding the bar (sometimes a partner helps) parallel to the saw and outward away from the front of the saw, align the bottom parts of the chain inside the bar guide slot all around the bar, holding just enough tension that it doesn't fall off the sprocket or get misaligned in the bar guide. Try moving the chain a little bit to make sure it is not binding on anything. If it doesn't move at all, make sure the chain brake is not on. Once it is moving smoothly, put the cover back on, and begin to hand tighten the nuts. Just before they begin to get tight, eyeball where the chain tensioner pin is in relation to the hole it is supposed to go in. Adjust the chain tensioner screw to move the pin towards the hole. When it pops in the hole, continue tightening the nuts by hand until tight. Now you and your partner can let go of the bar. Adjust the chain tensioner for the proper tension in the chain, not too loose, not to tight, refere to your manual. Finish tightening the cover nuts using the universal wrench to the specifications given in the owners manual.

Not a problem, Just info needed, lost manuel, how would I tighten the chain? Also, what type/weight of oil should be used?


on the side of your saw there are 2 nuts next to each other, back them off one&half to two turns,and then look to the front of the saw were the bar that the chain ride on and you will find a screw head with a flat head screw driver turn clockwise to tighten not to much.you should be able to still turn the chain with your hand fairly easy snug up the two nuts end thats it.as for oil you need chainsaw chain oil you can buy it at your local hardware store.

I have an older McCulloch chain saw- Pro Mac 610. When using the saw the chain will get very tight. If I adjust the chain to the proper tension, make a couple of cuts the chain loosens and must be...


The main reason for a chain to tighten is because it is not getting enough oil to the bar, or too thin an oil is being used, you should see a good spray of oil off the end of the bar when held against a tree stump, if not try adjusting the flow if it has an adjuster.

Chain saw chain is loose


Loosen the side cover nuts, then turn the adjuster CW to bring the chain up to the lower edge of the bar, then check to see if the chain will move fairly easily by hand. Tighten the clamp nuts and recheck tension. If chain seems to get loose quickly again, it may not be sharpened correctly causing heat to build in the chain. You should see no reflection of light from the cutting edges if filed correctly and the saw should require very little pressure for it to cut rapidly. Hope this helps!

Chain Adjustment
  1. Make sure the chain brake is off (gloves will protest your fingers).
  2. If necessary, loosen the bar nuts that are clamping the clutch cover in place (or whatever holds the clutch cover and bar on). They do not need these really loose - finger tight will do.
  3. Ease the tension adjustment until the chain is obviously loose.
  4. Using one hand, hold the nose of the bar up.
  5. While holding the nose up, adjust the tensioner so that the center of the chain just touches the underside of the bar, add a touch more.
  6. Continue holding the nose of the bar up & tighten up the bar nuts / bolts / quick-release system. HTH

Look carefully at the picture and your chain, it can be mounted backward; they do not cut when backward.

Chain becomes very loose with little use


the problem with torqueing the nuts is that it's not enough tighting.i tell my customers that you need to tighten them as tight as you can get them.the nuts will not vibrate loose then.don't worry about breaking the studs they are very hard.
