On the side of the saw is a cover usually with one hex nut, take that off and remove the cover. clean out any foreign material you find BUT be careful that the chain might be sharp and make sure the saw is unplugged. then what you want to do is loosen up the adjusting screw located on the front of the saw in the area of the cover a little, roll the chain back onto the bar and sprocket, replace cover and hold up on the tip of the bar with a rag to avoid getting cut snug bar adjustment while lifting the center of chain on top until you can just start to see bottom of teeth, then tighten cover nut, roll chain by hand should roll freely

I can't get the chain to tighten and I lost my manual (someone borrowed it and apparently took it with her to Nebraska!) I have a UT43100/14

Here is a link to the Operator's Manual for that saw, and here is a link to the Replacement Parts List, just in case you need some new parts or pieces for it...

I have had a P4018WT for about 5 years. I recently replaced the chain wand now I need to re tighten after 8-10 cuts. My son said that he had to do the same thing when he borrowed it. I do not think I was...

It is always a good idea to always check your chain tension on a regular basis and adjust it as required before any cutting session. That said, I would not consider that retightning your chain every 8-10 cuts (not sessions) is normal under 'domestric' usage: I would check the condition of the chain bar and more specifically the bar locking nuts (if ensure, just replace the nuts with the appropriate special bar locking nuts).

I have borrowed a chainsaw PWR1750CSA from a friend i need to know what oil goes in the tank, i presume it is to lubricate the chain.

The fuel tank takes a 25-1 fuel oil mix, the oil tank takes a non fling chain oil to lubricate the chain, if you you a light oil it will spray off the end of the bar and not lubricate the under side of the bar where most cutting is done, if you cannot get non fling oil use as thick an oil as you can get hold of.

I borrowed a friend's POULAN 14" ELECTRIC

Remove the side cover nuts and the cover, wind the bar adjuster screw fully back, it may be in the cover, or on the front of the saw, push the guide bar fully back toward the sprocket, loop the chain ocer the sprocket and lay it around the the guide bar, make sure the cutters on the top of the bar rail are facing away from the saw, this will make sure it is the correct way round make sure the bar adjuster pawl is engaged into the hole in the bar, if the adjuster pawl is in the cover, replace the cover making sure the pawl engages into the hole in the bar, refit the cover nur finger tight, adjust the adjuster screw so as the chain fits snug fully around the bar, loft the nose of the bar and fully tighten the cover nut, with a gloved hand pull the chain manualy around the bar to make sure it is fitting in the rails and the sprocket correctly.

I have borrowed a 10"

Look for a small peg near the back of the saw blade by the hinge mechanism. It usually just pulls out. Probably no wider than 1/4 inch and might require you to gently push down on the saw when releasing it because it is spring loaded to remain up at all times when not in use.

No problem; using a borrowed Husqvarna 44-don't know fuel mixtures (if any). The chamber for "oil"-is that engine oil (if so, what do you recommend) or chain saw oil (if not, is there another...

The mix fuel mix is 40:1. Use Husqvarna 2 stroke oil not the cheap stuff on sale at car service stations. The chamber for oil is for chain oil which can be bought at most places that sell or hire machinery like chainsaws, lawnmowers etc.

I have a MAC 3516 and need a replacement bar and chain. The original Chain and bar are not available. the saw runs good but need the primer bulb and chain bar and chain. Any ideas would be great.

Hello Eric, You can get an Oregon brand bar and chain that will work perfectly on your Mac 3516. I have this same chainsaw and keep a spare bar and chain, so I can quickly swap them out, should they get damaged, etc.

The Oregon bar and chain part numbers are as follows:

#100457 (Bar & chain combo pack)

You can also find these sold at most Home Depot, Lowe's and other hardware stores that carry chainsaws, as Oregon makes their replacement bar and chains to fit all the major brands available.

Unless your existing bar and chain are completely galled up, scored or bent/busted beyond repair, I would find a small engine repair shop or local hardware store that sharpens chainsaw cutting chains, (True Value and Ace do it in our area) and see if they can sharpen and true up the bar. The price for this is typically about 1/3 to 1/2 the price of a new chain and bar set, and worth having a spare around.

I also like having that extra aleady to use (sharp) chain, so when a neighbor borrows my saw and invariably lets the chainsaw go into the dirt (that'll dull the chain so fast!). I will always be able to use my saw, when I need to, without having to run out and get a replacement, or spend 15 minutes having to sharpen it by hand, etc.

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Oil leak

jdawg's right; the manual states that you must empty the oil after using it. Even after you do so, expect a few more drops to leak out over the next day or so - that's what mine does. I use some of the oil-absorbing pads that you can pick up in marine stores or auto parts stores, just let it sit on one of those for a while till the resevoir is completely empty.
