If you haven't got your problem addressed yet, I'd like to help. I'm unclear on exactly what you're having problems with. Can't you get the bolts tightened? Can't you get the bolts loosened? Do you keep turning the bolts, but they don't tighten down? Also, you indicate your problem is with the owner's manual; is that because the manual doesn't address your problem? Try to be as specific as you can about the actual problem. Thanks.

SOURCE: what part number oregon chain do i need for a

Hello Sam;
I cannot find anything by Deere (probably an efco 152) about your saw. Oregon does list some particulars here:
Oregon Bar & Chain Selector
I input:
John Deere; CS52; *see below; All (0.325"); All (0.050"); All (yours is likely green - low kickback).
*16" - 66 drive links (the part that fits in the bar).
*18" - 72 drive links.

If your saw does not use either 66 or 72 drive links I suspect the bar, drive sprocket, or drive sprocket and bar nose in use are not what the the saw was originally supplied with. Any local chainsaw seller/mechanic given your chain as a pattern can fabricate one in about 5 minutes. Often a local chain is less expensive (no shipping).

If you have more questions or need additional help please reply below and I will get back to you. HTH & Good Luck.
Thank You for using FixYa.

How do i adjust the steering box on a john deere jd1950

Pretty much every steering sector has a way to remove excessive play (backlash) in the worm gear. Look on the sector for a locknut encompassing a large threaded bolt with no head, usually a wide slot for a "flat bit" used in a 3/8 or 1/2" ratchet. Some DO have a square headed end on the adjustment screw. Back off the lock nut 3/4 turn and tighten the adjustment, turn the steering wheel back and forth, tighten the adjustment screw again, tighten the lock nut and go for a spin. Hopefully adjustment improved it a bit. If not, try it again. Do not tighten it ridiculously tight though.

Chain came off

You probably got a tool with your chainsaw that looks like a double headed socket wrench with a flat head screwdriver on the other end. Use this to remove the chain gear housing and simply reattach the chain. Note the slot in the bar near the back of the engine? Stick a screwdriver in there and push against the engine body to create tension while you bolt the housing back in place. Once done, look straight down the bar to the should see a screw to one side. This screw is a tensioning screw that you use to tighten she chain in small increments. if you notice your chain getting loose, stop, shut down and tighten. Good luck!

How do you tighen a chainsaw chain?

Depends on the chainsaw. On most Stihl saws there is a screw between the two bar locking bolts that you turn clockwise to tighten the chain. On other saws the screw is in front of the housing that the bar and chain come out of and face into the housing, parallel to the bar. Clockwise still tightens the chain.

In both cases you have to loosen the nuts on the guide bar studs and then adjust the tension adjustment screw.

For more info go to the manufacturer's web site and download the owners manual.

There should be adjustments on the tie rod ends connecting to the front axles. Loosen set bolt, make the adjustment and re-tighten set bold.

The chain has come off my bosch ake 40-19e chainsaw, how do I get this back on?

first loosen the bolts that hold the bar in place. then find then loosen the adjustment screw. Once it is loose, the chain will go back on the bar. Then tighten the chain so there is only about 1/8" movement. (You will want to tighten the bolt so they are snug, when you are tighting the chain) Once that is complete re-tighten the bolts completely.
