It realy depends on what year and make of vehicle you are trying to figure this out on. some you can use a timing gun and the newer you can use a computer.

Timing chain noise


The chain, gear teeth or possibly a tensioner could be going bad (worn teeth or tensioner, stretched chain).. you need to replace whatever before the timing slips and valves are bent/broken.

After using anew chaini hit dirt. isharpenit withadifferntanglewillthat make a differencein cutting.


sure will , most saws have different angle cuts to teeth on blade this "angle" needs to be maintained as the "rake" teeth that are behind the cut teeth are set to provide a good way to wipe out cut debris (cut,rake,cut,etc.) this is how chain cuts thru wood , if one changes the cut angle on teeth the rake teeth might not do there job correct and saw bogs and "files" thru wood rather than chips thru wood ,takes longer ,more fuel, more effort , a look at saw cuttings tells the tale , more tiny file sawdust = dull chain --- large Chips and less dust = sharp chain

On my Honda 200x 1984 timing jumps one tooth after setting kicked first time ride jumped out.65.50 wisco big bore kit.12 tooth drive socket. Set tenchner til chain sound stops?,


2 questions come to mind has the new sprocket got the same pitch ( distance between teeth ) as the crank shaft sprocket as this will make the chain jump out after a few degrees of movement. A quick check is to wrap the chain around the sprocket and see if there are links that do not sit fully around the teeth. There are different pitches for teeth and chains ( BA-- AM and metric)

My timing chain sounds loose. can it be adjusted or should it be replaced? 2003 nissan altima 2.0


If it is running loose for a long time and is worn then should be replaced as soon as
But if the tensioner has come loose which it shouldn't have then an inspection of the links will further tell you if it should be replaced.There are ways to inspect the timing chain.This is a rough guide.

Timing Chain and Sprockets Cleaning and Inspection
  1. Clean the components with cleaning solvent.
    Caution Wear safety glasses in order to avoid eye damage.

  2. Dry the components with compressed air.

  3. Inspect the timing chain for binding or wear.

  4. Inspect the camshaft and crankshaft sprockets for:
    • Worn teeth (1)
    • Damaged teeth (2)
    • Chipped teeth (3)
    • Worn valleys between the sprocket teeth

  5. Inspect the crankshaft sprocket keyway for wear.
  6. Inspect the crankshaft sprocket oil pump drive splines for wear.

  7. Inspect the chain guide (232) for the following conditions:
    • Loose metal inserts (1)
    • Cracking (2) in the chain contact area
    • Excessive grooves (3) in the chain contact area Grooves 1 mm (0.040 in) or less in depth are to be considered normal wear.

Poor cutting and over heating. Have cleaned it and have enough oil and checked chain is on correctly.


It does not take much to take the cutting edge off a chain saw. A few accidental excursions into sand or dirty logs quickly dull the teeth. Check that your chain cutting teeth are sharp, blunt teeth will overload the motor and cause it to run hot. Chains can be sharpened several times before needing replacement and can be done DIY or taken to specialist sharpeners.

Can you change tranny gears to decrease rpm's on highway? Or maybe change sprockets.


You can add teeth to the front sprocket or take teeth off of the rear sprocket. In the case of your bike , I do not think there is a 17 tooth front available so your best option would be to shorten your chain and drop from the 44 tooth rear sprocket to 40 tooth or a 36 tooth rear sprocket. That would be like adding one or two teeth to the front sprocket. Your stock is 16/44 so decrease from there. Be sure to ID your chain, get a chain breaker, and a new master link.

I am having problems with the chain coming off the guide rail of a Husqvarna 345. A new rail and chain was put on the saw recently. When the chain came off last time I noticed a lot of wear on the teeth...


It is possible that the clutch sprocket teeth are badly worn causing extra wear on the drive teeth of the chain. Remove the bar and chain to check the sprocket--you can determine the wear by comparing the area where the chain runs to the edges of the sprocket that are relatively unworn. If the sprocket requires replacement, the chain should be replaced as well. The chain normally should be loose enough that the chain can be moved by hand, but it should not droop from the lower bar edge. Check the chain oiling by running the bar tip at speed near some cardboard--it should throw off a thin line of oil after a moment or two. There should be an oil volume adjustment screw located on the under side of the case near the chain return area--turn CCW to increase flow. Hope this helps!

I HAVE A POULAN PRO 260 42cc 18 inch THAT IS 5 yrs old REPLACED BAR AN CHAIN . WENT TO CUT SOME TREE LIMBS CAN NOT EVEN MAKE ONE FULL CUT AN CHAIN COMES OFF AFTER 4 TIMES WENT AN RENTED ONE.


Remove the new chain and compare it against the old one. Do the new drive teeth match the 'pitch' of the old chain? If incorrect, the chain cannot be adjusted properly and will 'climb' over the sprocket due to the chain teeth not matching the teeth on the drive sprocket. Getting the proper chain is the answer in this case. Hope this helps!

Chain saw cuts at an angle


I have seen this problem of a chain saw cutting at an angle brought up again and again on forums, and result in a variety of answers about sharpening the chain, or replacing the bar and/or chain. In a number of these requests for solutions, none of the advice has solved the problem. I have used chain saws for about 45 years now, and there is a condition that some chains develop with the pitch of the teeth or the guides...or both...that will cause them to cut to the left or right at an angle (usually left). While I have not figured out what causes this, I have solved the problem of correcting it. First, turn the nose of your bar and chain toward you on a bench, look down it like sighting a gun and take a look at each tooth and guide. If the saw is cutting left, the teeth or the guides (or both) on the left (while you are looking down the bar from its tip) will be pitched differently than the teeth and/or guides on the right. The pitch of those teeth or guides (those little ears that stick up about on-fourth inch in front of each tooth) will be: 1) too much in line with each other, or 2) the teeth or guides will be less pitched than the teeth or guides on the right side of the chain. Solution: take a large pair of lineman's pliers or similar pliers and pitch those teeth and guides to match those on the right side of the chain. Also, make sure the curved part of your chain teeth peek out around the outside edge of those guides. If the guides are directly in line with your teeth, they will hinder cutting by the teeth. You can do this with the chain on the saw if you don't have too much slack between the bar and the chain. Last, make sure that the chain guides are not as tall or taller than your teeth. If they are, you will need to file them down a little (with a flat file) until the teeth are slightly longer than the guides. Afterward, make sure the teeth on both sides are equally sharp, and go cut a straight cut! TennesseeBob
