Question about McCulloch Garden
Chain slipped off and I can not figure how to put it back on. This is a electric chain saw.
Pull side cover at rear of bar--clean everything including cover with compressed air including air vent holes around the motor case. Pay attention to two small holes in bar (one on each side) which deliver oil from motor frame to the chain slot in the bar. Only one hole is used at a time depending which side up is used when installing the bar. Lay the loose bar on a flat surface to see if it has been bent sideways (it will rock back and forth). Do the same with the chain (remove any cross-over loops). Replace one or both if apparently bent. Check original chain for any lengthwise looseness and check sprocket which drives the chain for excessive wear on teeth. Run the saw without bar and chain for short time to see if oiler pumps oil out of port. If everything looks ok, thread the chain onto the sprocket with teeth cutting-edges pointing toward the case on the bottom edge of the bar. Fit bar into extended chain and work under-side of chain into the bar slot all the way around (except rear of bar), then extend bar to pull chain fairly tight. Next, fit cover to case ensuring that adjuster tang is in the proper hole at the rear of the bar (may have to turn adjuster screw CCW several turns) and fits flat to case. Install bar holding nut(s) hand tight, and then adjust chain adjuster CW until chain holds tight to under side of bar, but still free to turn chain by hand. Tighten nuts firmly and recheck chain. Put some oil into small holes near tip sprocket (if any) to lube sprocket. Finally, run saw with chain tip near paper or cardboard surface to check for slight oil line appearing off of the running chain. Check and resharpen chain teeth if required.

Remove side cover of chain, loosen bar nut, there is a screw on the front of the saw under the sawdust and oil. Turning it one way tightens the bar. The other way loosens it. Loosen it til you get the chain back on, then tighten it til there is about 1/2" slack in the bottom of the chain between it and the bar. By the By, semi tighten the nut before any major adjustments, then adjust the chain to above and tighten bar nut. You should be set to go. BE CAREFUL! Dont forget personal safety!!!

Remove the side cover nuts and the cover, wind the bar adjuster screw fully back, it may be in the cover, or on the front of the saw, push the guide bar fully back toward the sprocket, loop the chain ocer the sprocket and lay it around the the guide bar, make sure the cutters on the top of the bar rail are facing away from the saw, this will make sure it is the correct way round make sure the bar adjuster pawl is engaged into the hole in the bar, if the adjuster pawl is in the cover, replace the cover making sure the pawl engages into the hole in the bar, refit the cover nur finger tight, adjust the adjuster screw so as the chain fits snug fully around the bar, loft the nose of the bar and fully tighten the cover nut, with a gloved hand pull the chain manualy around the bar to make sure it is fitting in the rails and the sprocket correctly.
