Question about Poulan Pro 42CC 2 Cycle Chainsaw, 18"
I have 42 cc 18 inch poulan chainsaw which runs well but the chain started falling off after about a half an hour use. I know I have a crack in the bar, just where the chain tension adustment screw is.( the shaft that moves back and forth is split down the middle) I used the saw for weeks with this crack. If it was the tension screw that is giving way on load then you would think that you would be able to put the chain back on without having to back it off but this is not the case. I have to take the clutch cover off everytime and re-adjust the screw for the chain to fit. Do I need to replace the the bar or do I have a clutch problem? Can I replace the tension screw and not the whole bar? Thank-you. Denny
New bar and chain should do the trick. ONCE IT GETS A LITTLE DULL T BUILDS UP HEAT AND STRETCHES. Use a good quality case hardened chain they last longer and are well worth the extra money.
