Hello mingster. Just inside of bar is a screw for adjusting the tension of the chain. The screw hole maybe full of dust & oil. Rotate the screw while holding the chain next to the tip of the bar to determine clockwise or counterclockwise. When adjusting the chain tension don't over tighten.

How do I get the chain back on


Remove the two nuts on the side of saw. Then remove cover and slide the bar backwards to create slack in chain. make sure the tension adjustment nut (usually square head) is in groove of bar. When chain is back on bar slide the bar forward taking up the slack. Put the cover back on, put the nuts back on and with a slotted screw driver turn the bar adjustment to take up the slack. The chain should lift off the bar slightly but not so much that it is loose.

How do I put the chain back on a chainsaw?


you need to loosen the nut on the side of the chainsaw and then take the cover off. Remove the bar and take the chain off. Then put the chain back on the bar being careful about the direction of the chain. Place the chain back over the sprocket and lower the bar back onto the plate making sure the hole lines up with the adjusting mechanism on the cover. After you line up them up put the nuts back on and loosely tighten them. Adjust the chain where it is almost tight and then tighten up the nuts.

How do you fix the chain


Remove cover on the chain side of the saw. Loosen the two hex nuts that hold the bar onto the saw. You will need to loosen the tightener screw also. Place chain back onto the bar making sure the chain is positioned properly in the sprocket at the rear of the bar and just reverse the directions. Tighten the tightener screw until the chain is tightened leaving a little slack, then tighten the two hex nut. Replace the side cover. When you pull the chain down away from the bar, it should have just a bit of slack not tight. This allows the chain to turn without a lot of friction. I hope this helps.

Chainm has popped . How do I put back on?


On the right side of the saw, where the chain disappears into the housing, there should be one or two nuts. These are what hold the Bar and Chain retainer plate on. Remove these two nuts, and the plate, the Bar, and the Chain will come off.

Now, just to put the chain Back on to the Bar, all you have to do is to LOOSEN these two nuts, and either right between them, or NEAR them is a FLAT-HEADED SCREW. Turn this screw to either LOOSEN, (retract) the Bar, or EXTEND the Bar. So, retact the bar, which loosens the chain, put the chain back on the bar, slowly extend the bar, by turning the screw, so that the chain gets tighter, then tighten back up the two nuts.

The chain should have a small amount of slack in it when you are finished. If you tighten it up too much, then it won't freely move, and will prematurely wear out your bar.

Good Luck.

How do you rePlace the chain on the 455 rancher?


You take the chain cover off of the bar. It is two nuts. Take them off and the cover will come off. Slide the bar toward you and the chain will become slack. You can then slide off the chain from the sprocket. To put a new one on. You will need to turn the chain adjustment back all the way to the left. Then put the chain back over the sprocket, then onto the bar. Put the chain cover back on and tighten the chain back up. Then tighten the two nuts back to tight.

Chain tension adjustor will not tighten. Is it striped?


It might be, but the chain has probably stretched past the limit. If you buy a new chain and match it up to this one, you won't believe the difference. If that is not the problem, take the chain off, take the bar off, clean out the adj screw, make sure it moves, set it back as far as you can, put the bar and chain back on, make sure you are in the drive sprocket, put the nuts on, adj the bar, tighten up the nuts, you should be set. My adj screw gave out long ago, I just pull the bar tight and go. Hope this helps.

Chain fell off poll, trying to figure out how to put it back on.


On the side of the saw where the bar (what the chain goes around/rides on) where it connects to the saw there are a couple nuts. Loosen them up, push the bar back towards the saw to put slack in the chain, wrap the chair around the bar making sure the bottom of the chain is in the groove on the bar and tip of the bar, then push the bar forwards away from the saw to take out the slack in the chain. Hold it tight and tighten up the two nuts. Depending on your model of pole saw, you may have only one nut and a plastic guide that keeps it straight. Same concept though. Loosen the nut, push bar in, put chain on, pull bar out, tighten nut.
If you've ever done it on a bicycle, it's the same concept. Loosen nuts on back wheel, push tire forwards and chain gets loose. Pull it backwards and chain gets tight.

Chain came off ,need to know how to put it back on!!!


On the chain saw there should be a panel held on by two screws or nuts where the bar and chain is attached. Remove the two screws or nuts and the panel and you will expose the chain and sprocket. Loop the chain around the sprocket and bar. Put the bar with the chain around the sprocket back on the saw, reinstall the cover with the two screws/nuts, but do not tighten too tight.(You will want to be able to move the bar with the chain.) Then pull the bar away from the saw to tighten the chain, once the chain it tight, then you will retighten the screws or nuts to lock the bar and chain in place. Be sure you lube the chain and bar with "Bar Oil" before starting to put the saw into service. Good Luck...I hope this helped Please rate me, Thanks

Re-install chain

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.
