Make sure chainbrake is OFF. The brake band needs to be in the opened position to fit back over the clutch drum.

SOURCE: Husqvarna chain brake

You'll have to release the brake with the cover off the saw. You just need to find a way to brace it well enough.
If you really can't do this, then it suggests your chainbrake is faulty, of ath the very least not adjusted right.

SOURCE: i took the sprocket cover off to remove the bar

It must be reset before you can reinstall it.
This answer stolen from Dolfoff;

Clamp the cover in a vise being careful to stay on flat surfaces of the cover (use wooden blocks if needed) and pull the brake lever back to the "OFF" position. It's a strong spring so pull hard in the direction that would be towards the rear of the saw if the cover were installed.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: cant get the cover back on chainsaw

The chain brake should have been released before removing the cover. You will have to release it with a large flat-blade screwdriver in the connector that runs the brake from the control handle. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: I am trying to replace the chain on my saw. When

Your chain brake mechanism is in the "locked" position...you will need to release it. Some husky's have the handle on the cover. If this is the case simply pull the handle towards what would be the rear of the saw and install the cover.
Other saws have the handle on the saw and some little cogs mesh with cogs in the side cover. In order to unlock this one I use two 1/4" x 2 1/2 inch or so bolts in a vise. They get clamped with the bolts protruding vertically above the vise jaws and are spaced so the the tips of the bolt will fit in between the cogs. Study the assembly and determine the direction of rotation required to release the brake. Place the side cover face down over the bolts with the bolt tips in between the cogs and rotate until the brake cams over and releases. be sure you know which direction to rotate the cover as a bit of force is required to get things moving.
Once the brake is released you should be good to go.
Take care.

SOURCE: I can not get the cover to fit back over the chain

The chain brake is activated, if the hand guard is connected to the brake cover, carefully clamp the brake in a vice ( be careful not to damage the cover ) now pull the hand guard fully back until the brake clicks off, if the hand guard is on the saw itself, remove the two screws and remove the hand guard, use this as a tool to fit into the brake and load it.

How to put the chain back on a 16" Poulan electric chain saw


its probably like the gas model. so you remove the 2 nuts holding on the side cover of the blade side, remove the cover and the blade and chain. To fit back, slacken the adjuster screw a little bit, or if fitting a new chain then a fair amount, as you have to be careful that the pin on the adjuster fits into the proper hole on the saw bar, as you fit back on the bar, of which you have already cleaned out the grooves. supporting the bar in the slackest position, fit on the chain, making sure that the cutting edge at the bottom is coming towards the motor. Then slide the bar and chain away from the motor to take up the slack, then fit back the metal guide in the original position, fit cover with the adjuster pin in its hole on the bar, and replace the 2 nuts almost tight but slack enough to use the adjuster to set the chain to cutting position..slightly sagging on the sprocket nose type, or snug on the solid nose type..then tighten the cover 2 nuts firmly but not excessively as that will damage the machine..NB the bar & chain depends on the adjuster, not on the nuts tightness to maintain tension

Install side cover on 455 rancher with chain break


Problem is you removed side cover with chain brake closed. You must open the chain brake to re-install the cover. You can do it with the handle. Put the side cover into position, put the handle into the fitting on the side cover. push the handle forward until you feel the "3" point connector engage. apply pressure to the handle and pull back until the side chain brake "Pops" open. Your Husqvarna dealer has a tool to open the chain brake if you are unable to get it open. Takes about 5 mins.

Make sure the chainbrake ( if if fitted ) is off by pulling the hand guard fully back to the top handle, remove the securing nuts and remove the side cover, wind the chain adjuster back if it is in the crankcase, pull the bar fully back, now loop the loose chain off the tip of the bar and over the sprocket, re fit the new chain over the sprocket, and lay it around the guide bar, place the bar adjuster hole onto the adjuster pawl ( if it is in the crankcase ) refit the side cover, if the adjuster pawl is in the side cover make sure it fits into the hole in the bar, put the securing nuts back on finger tight, adjust the chain so as it fits snuggley around the bar, with a gloved hand pull the chain around the bar to make sure it is seated correctly, re adjust if required, lift the bar nose up and fully tighten the securing nuts, after the first ten minutes of use re check the chain tention as there will be an initial stretch.

I have a 358351610 chain saw and need to find out how to remove the chain


Set the chain brake to off, then remove the fasteners on the right side cover where the chain drives from. This will release the bar which will slide back toward the engine and allow the chain to be removed. Note the direction of the cutting edge of the teeth. Clean everything including the two small oil passages that run from the large holes in the bar out to the chain groove on each edge of the bar. When refitting a new chain, back off on the chain adjustment screw (CCW) a few turns to allow the cover to fit to the bar properly. Fit the chain over the clutch sprocket, then insert the bar to the engine. Work the chain over the bar, then pull the bar outward to tighten the chain. Install the cover and the fasteners finger tight. Make sure the cover fits the bar properly. Tighten the chain adjuster CW so that the chain pulls up to the lower bar edge, but not so tight that you can't turn the chain by hand. Tighten the cover fasteners, then recheck the chain tension. The lower run of chain should be cutting as the chain moves toward the engine. Check the chain oiling by running the saw at speed with the bar tip near some cardboard--it should throw off a thin line of oil after several moments. Hope this helps!

Need to replace chain on farm boss with 20 inch bar how do i get to sprocket to get old chain off


Release the chain brake. Remove the nuts/bolts that hold the right hand cover over the drive end of the bar. With the cover off, the bar will slide back toward the engine and allow the chain to be removed. Note the direction of the cutting teeth! Clean the side of the engine where the bar fits to, and the small oil passages in the bar drive end that run from the large holes out to the chain groove on each edge. Also clean the entire chain groove. Fit the new chain to the sprocket, then insert the bar and work the chain onto it. Pull out on the bar until the chain fits fairly tight, then fit the cleaned cover over the drive. You may have to change the position of the chain adjustment screw a few turns to allow the adjustment 'tang' to drop into one of the large holes in the bar. Make sure the cover is fully seated, then run the fasteners down finger tight. Turn the chain adjuster screw CW until the chain pulls up to the bottom edge of the bar, but not so tight that you can't turn the chain by hand. Tighten the fasteners fully and recheck chain tension. Start the engine and run the tip of the bar near some cardboard at speed for a moment or two--proper oiling is indicated by a thin line of oil thrown onto the cardboard. Be sure to keep the chain teeth sharp and properly adjust chain tension--don't allow it to droop when cutting. Hope this helps!

Chain oil flowing out afterr replacing chain adjustment screw and bolt


Remove the bar and chain completely. Clean the entire case side where the bar fits as well as the bar drive end oil passages--especially the small channels the send oil out to the chain groove on each side. Back off on the chain adjustment by several turns, then fit the cleaned cover onto the saw after installing the bar and chain. Make sure the adjustment 'tang' fits into one of the large holes in the bar end. Fasten the cover screws/nuts down finger tight, then adjust the bar out until the chain pulls up to the lower run of the bar, but not so tight that you can't move the chain by hand. Tighten the cover fasteners firmly, then recheck chain tension. If ok, do a test cut on a log. Good luck!

Chain jammed on plant won't run after pulling most of plant from inner part of chain. Makes humming noise


The humming is the motor trying to turn. Remove the drive end cover from the bar and chain--back off the chain adjustment CCW several turns. If the saw has a chain brake, release it. When the cover is loose, remove the bar and chain, inspect the entire mechanism for any damage--particularly the chain itself. Run the motor without the bar and chain, and check for oil oozing out of the side port in the motor case where the bar fits. To reassemble, fit the bar in place after cleaning the small oil passages in the drive end, then fit chain over the sprocket. Pull the bar outwards to tighten the chain, then fit the cover and fasteners finger tight. Adjust the lower run of chain up to the bar (the lower run of teeth cut toward you), but not so tight that you can turn the chain by hand. Tighten the fasteners and recheck chain tension. Chain saws don't seem to like cutting hedges and other small branch, but tough bushes and the like. Make sure the chain teeth are properly sharpened. Hope this helps!

How to put chain on remington electric chainsaw


Remove the side cover over the chain drive area. Remove the bar and clean the entire mounting area. Run the saw for a few moments to assure that oil is oozing out of the side port where the bar mounts. Lay the chain out on a bench or table and inspect it for sideways bending, damaged or missing links/teeth, and deformed drive teeth. Inspect the drive sprocket for damage as well. Clean the oil passages in the bar end including the two channels that go out to the chain groove. If all looks well, place the bar back into position and push it back. Fit the chain over the sprocket, then work it over the bar and pull the bar out to tighten the chain. Fit the cleaned cover over the case and make sure the adjustment tang drops into one of the large holes in the bar end--you may have to back off the adjustment screw several turns first. Fit the cover and tighten the mounting hardware finger tight. Make sure the chain cuts toward you on the bottom run. Tighten the adjustment screw until the chain pulls up to the lower bar edge, but still allows the chain to be moved by hand. Tighten the cover hardware and recheck the chain tension. Run the tip of the bar near some cardboard for a few moments--it should throw off a thin line of oil on the cardboard. Make sure the chain is properly sharpened. Hope this helps!

Oil is not coating the chain?


Remove the bar and chain after releasing the chain brake. Clean the cover and the area where the bar fits to the engine. Start the engine and watch for oil oozing out of the side port where the bar fits. If ok, clean the bar end oil passages including the two small channels that go from the large holes out to the chain groove on each side. Clean the entire groove and check the tip sprocket if equipped. If no oil came out of the port, then you need to inspect the oil pump, lines, and tank filter for plugging or damage. When oil comes out as specified, insert the bar, push back, and fit the chain over the sprocket then work it over the bar. Make sure the teeth cut toward you on the bottom run. Pull the bar out to tighten the chain, then back off the chain adjustment screw several turns. Fit the cover, making sure the adjustment tang fits into one of the large holes in the bar, the run the fasteners down finger tight. Adjust the screw till the chain pulls up to the bar, but allows the chain to be moved by hand. Tighten the mountings and recheck the tension. Run the saw tip near a piece of cardboard at speed for a few moments--it should throw off a thin line of oil onto the cardboard. Make sure the chain is properly sharpened. Hope this helps!
