Stihl hs86 set blade gap

You shouldn't have to set a gap.. the gap between the blades is 'pre-determined' by a spacer between the blades that each 'blade bolt' passes through. You should be able to tighten up the blade bolts and the blades should still move. If they dont, then the spacers are worn and need to be replaced.

Motor runs but blade stops 1" into the wood

Seems like it could be a clutch/drum issue. I have known clutches to break through the threads in the crank shaft so they appear tight but are actually broken. I'd look at the drum assembly to see why the drive to the chain is slipping.
