General rule is to tighten it by hand, then turn it with a ratchet another 1/8 to 1/4 turn.

What brands chain can i use on an 025


well im sure stihl wants you to use there's , but Oregon makes nice ones too

its allways a good idea to have two chains and 1 spare spark plug for your saw , these are a sort of "must haves!!" for saws , oh and a wrench that fits the spark plug and the chain bar too , Oregon makes one of those combo wrenches 4 that too

NEED NEW CHAIN DRIVE UNIT INCLUDING PLASTIC


The model 028 Stihl Chainsaw was in production for many years and the clutch drum sprocket (or chain drive) came in three (3) versions over the years of production.
For several reasons, it is best to take the saw to an authorized Stihl Dealership (Locate your nearest dealership HERE) for production identification, evaluation of cost-effectivness and availability of parts.

Reason 1) The first-generation 028 saw is approaching 30 years old.

Reason 2) Extreme heat caused by a locked chain-brake can damage the engine case and render the saw unfixable (part support is going away due to age).

Reason 3) The shear cost of parts and amount of time it would take for a DIY repair.

Reason 4) The plastic gears you mentioned are the drive system that make the chain's oil pump work. If the plastic is melted, the oil pump is likely to be damaged as well. In most cases the oil pump cover gets damaged ... the list goes on and on.

Genuine Stihl parts are not sold online and aftermarket parts would be a gamble. It's up to you to decide if the cost, time and effort are worth it.
Hope this helps.
