Question about McCulloch Garden

Broken bar retaining bolt

I brought the saw to a local (and reputable) chain saw repair shop and he told me he couldn't get specialty parts (like retaining bolts) and if he could, it would be an extensive job.
Do you know where I can find these bolts? I can do the replacing myself.
Even a parts number may help.

Thanks Much!

    I have a McCullough Eager ****** 2014 Chain Saw.

    I broke one the bar retaining bolts (there are two) .

    I need a part number (or an expanded schematic) for the bolt so I can find one.

    I can replace it myself.

This weekend I picked up a 14" McCulloch chain saw and have had a hell of a time getting it started. I am no novice at this as I already have a gas trimmer and blower. I am sure my fuel mixture is right and have done just about everything else by the book. In how many pulls do I consistently start a cold McCulloch chain saw. I should mention that I HAVE started it but can't believe it should be this hard."

I had the same problem with mine!
If yours is like mine , it has a throttle latch knob to use during starting. Mine never worked. After pulling myself silly trying to start it, I just decided to hold the throttle trigger open manually and it starts every time very easily.
You may want to give it a try if you haven't tried it already.

Thanks...

    The McCulloch download site is often buggy and does not work thats why
    it is better to call them to have it emailed to you direct. Again, it
    is free.

Change blade


all chain saws have a sprocket that the chain runs on this sprocket is what make the chain rotate on the bar. the bar is the long part that sticks out in front of the motor. you must remove the side cover of the saw to access the sprocket region of the saw. be sure the saw is unplugged and then remove side cover the bar is usually held in place by a couple of bolts. on gas saws these two bolts also hold the side cover in place and must be removed to replace the bar and chain. once you have removed the side cover look for bolts holding the bar in place. if you only want to change the chain then you may be able to only loosen the bolts or screws holding the bar in place.there should be a screw to adjust the bar forwards and backwards. this screw put tension on the chain so when you put a new chain on turning the screw will proberly tension the chain /do not overtighten the chain.
also be sure you put the new chain and blade on the same as the old one that comes off trying to cut with a chain that is on backward does not work. last note if you are replacing the blade because the old one is dull take the saw to a saw shop they can sharpen the exsisting chain and save you money.

Saw chain bar retention bolt is broken


Remington(Power) is no longer in production. Some replacement parts cannot be found outside eBay.

You provide no model number, I tried an M30016 and found a "Guide Bar Retainer" available. Find your IPB here:
Remington.com
http://shoppingcart.msservicecompany.com/Default.aspx
Type "YourModelNumber" into the "Search for your unit by Model:" window, then click search.
Click the “YourModelNumber” - Remington Electric Chain Saw "View Model" link.
Click “View Owners Manual” or "View Illustrated Parts Diagram" link.
Type "YourPartNumber" into the “Search for your parts by Part #:” window, then click search.

If "NLA" or "Back Ordered" try here:

Broken chain adjusting assembly


Are you aware Remington is no longer in production? Often eBay is the sole source for replacement parts. A local Husqvarna or Stihl dealer may have a suitable substitute. Take your cover, they are most helpful weekdays before 1500.

You do not give us the model number of your saw to verify this will fit.

• Type "YourModelNumber" into the "Search for your unit by Model:" window, then click search.
• Click the "YourModelNumber" - Remington Electric Chain Saw "View Model" link.

I have had my chain saw in the shop for repairs for 5 weeks. I this normal time for a repair. I am pretty frustrated. It was brought in because it would not stay running. I was told that they were still...


If purchased from a big box store and repaired locally that is normal.
It should have had a 2 year warranty. when did you purchase it? The repair shop can have a great deal of influence over whether it is a warranty repair or not, even if beyond the warranty period. Be nice to them. HTH

Cannot find replacement chain for Remington Electric Chain Saw M30016AW


This is an Oregon number if your bar is 16" pn 91VG058G, but kbsmiles is correct, Try a local saw seller first. Just take your existing chain for them to use as a pattern. HTH

Not getting oil to chain....oiler working could bar be bad?


Remove the bar and verify the oil-hole in the bar is clear using air gun and/or spray-lube.

Verify that the bar's oil hole mates to the saw's oil port. (Is the original bar installed?)

If these things checkout OK and you still have problems, have a reputable shop delve deeper into it. ASK the shop if they will check it and call you BEFORE doing a repair.
My shop will give a diagnosis and estimate for $10.00 on hand-held products.
Hope this helps.

Husqvarna chain saw oiler


My Husky 36 did this. The oil pump drive gear was stripped and had to be replace. It's located under the flywheel/sprocket so you have to pull that. I couldn't find info on how to do that so had a local shop repair it for $70! Parts are cheap, labor is not.
