Chain came off


Take off your chain guard, should be 2 bolts holding the chain bar in place. Then make sure there isnt another bolt or screw you missed, pop off cover put chain on, replace chain guard and tighten chain. It should be that simple

Chain dowsn't stay tight


Between the chain bar and the body there is an adjusting screw, if the adjusting screw is stripped it will not pull on the chain bar to tighten the chain.
procedure for tightening chain. loosen the chain guard nuts, tighten the bar adjusting screw by turning to the right or clockwise, the chain has to roll freely around the bar but not bind. check with gloves or rag, don't use bare hands to avoid accidents. once chain is adjusted, tighten the chain guard nuts. good luck!

Trying to put chain and saw together


If the saw has a chainbrake make sure it is de activated by pulling the hand guard fully to the top handle, you should hear an audible clip when it locks, remove the the bar nut/nuts and remove the side cover, if the chain adjuster is in the cover screw it right back, if the adjuster is in the crankcase screw it right back, place the guide bar onto the bar bolts, loop the chain over the sprocket and lay it around the guide bar with the cutters on the top of the bar facing away from the saw, if the adjuster pawl is in the crankcase locate it into the adjuster hole in the guide bar, now re fit the side cover, if the adjuster pawl is in the cover make sure it locates into the adjuster hole in the guide bar, re fit the bar nut/nuts finger tight, screw the adjuster up until the chain sits snuggley around the whole guide bar, pull the chain around the bar manually with a gloved hand, this will make sure it turns freely and is correctly located in the sprocket, hold the end of the guide bar up and tighten the nut/nuts

How do i replace my chain on my Partner brake assisted chain saw ?


Make sure the brake is de activated by pulling the hand guard fully back to the top handle, you shpuld hear an audible click when it locks, remove the nuts and side cover, the chain adjuster will either be in the crankcase or the side cover, screw the adjuster right back, remove the old chain, now loop the new chain over the sprocket and lay it into the guide bar with the cutters on the top of the bar facing away from the saw, re fit the side cover making sure the adjuster pawl locates into the adjuster hole in the bar, re fit the bar nuts finger tight, screw the adjuster up so as the chain sits snuggley all around the guide bar, pull the chain around manually with a gloved hand, this will make sure it is properly located in the sprocket and is free in the bar, lift the bar nose and fully tighten the bar nuts

How do I refit chain


Start by removing the side cover held with one or two nuts ( make sure the chainbrake if fitted is de activated by pulling the hand guard fully back toward the rear of the saw until there is an audible click ) if the chain has de railed you need to check for damage to the drive links, file away any burs, or fit a new chain, screw the chain adjuster fully back, assemble the guide bar onto the bar bolts and push fully back toward the rear of the saw, loop the chain over the sprocket and into the guide bar rails with the cutter teeth on top of the bar facing away from the saw if the bar adjuster pawl is in the crankcase make sure it fits into the hole in the guide bar, assemble the side cover, if the adjuster pawl is in the cover make sure this lines up with the hole in the guide bar ( adjust the pawl screw if required ), assemble the bars nuts finger tight, now adjust the pawl screw so as the chain sits snuggley around the guide bar, pull the chain around the bar with a gloved hand to make sure it is sitting into the bar and sprocket correctly, lift the nose of the guide bar and tighten the bar nuts.

How do I change the chain on my Poulan 46cc 20"


Look at the side of your saw where the chain and bar are; you'll see 2 nuts. These nuts will need to be loosened but don't remove just yet. Now look on that same side in front of where those nuts are and you should see a small screw head for a flat blade screwdriver.If it's not there then look on the inside of the bar on the saw body.Loosen that screw 3 turns or so then remove those nuts the rest of the way. Take of the side cover and push the bar towards the saw body - this should make the chain hang off the bar. Remove the chain and pay attention to the direction of the cutting tooth in relation to the lug in front of the tooth. This lug is the anti - kickback lug and on the new chain the lug MUST be in front of the cutting tooth of the chain. Re - install the chain, putting the back of the chain over the drum on the saw first then the front, making sure it is not hung up on the little metal bar on the bottom of the saw. Look on the bar - you'll see a hole in the bar that the peg attached to the screw goes in. Make sure that peg goes into the hole - adjust the peg by turning the screw so the peg lines up properly.Now replace the side cover, holding it flat against the saw body as you re - install those nuts on the saw. Tighten the nuts until they push the side cover flush to the saw. Now lift up on the tip of the bar and turn that screw to tighten the chain and adjust until the chain is flush all along the bar.Don't overtighten the chain as you may fry the bearings.The chain is tight enough when you lift on the chain and you can lift the link you're holding out of the track on the bar, with the bottom of the chain just barely coming out of that track.Tighten the nuts the rest of the way, being careful not to tighten them more than they were in the first place. Now start your saw per standard procedure, warm it up and make 2 cuts. Shut it off and check the chain tension to above specs - and you should be good.

Chain came off a 14 mcculloch how to put back on


Hi, you need to remove the plastic guard on the side, held in place by a nut and a screw. Replace the chain around wheel and chain guard, loosen tightening screw, replace plastic conver, and tighten tightening screw. Make sure you have the chain the right way round, there is usually a small diagram showing this. Hope this helps

How do I reattach chain after it slipped off


Normal 0 This will be the basic instruction for most common saws. Check that the chain brake is in disengaged position by moving the front hand guard towards the front handle if the saw is equipped with a chain brake on the handle. Loosen the bar nuts on the clutch cover. Loosen tension screw or other adjuster (thumbscrew) to allow the bar to be moved toward the engine. Some saws have this tension adjustment built into the bar. This will provide enough slack in the chain to able to reinstall it. It may be necessary to remove the side cover to gain access to the clutch/gear assembly on the side of the engine if the chain also jumped the gear here. Remove the cover, inspect for any debris or other obstructions in this area. If none, replace the chain back over the drive gear and in the bar groove all the way around the bar. It may be necessary to turn the bar adjuster screw more to provide enough slack in the chain to do this. Once the chain is in place reinstall the cover and bar lock nuts. Snug up the nuts but do not tighten these. Turn the bar/chain adjuster screw to tighten the chain on the bar (take up slack). I usually tighten to a point where there is no slack between the chain and the bottom of the bar and I can still turn the chain easily around the bar by hand. With experience you will get the feel for this chain tension. Once the chain is properly tensioned, tighten the bar lock bolts/ nuts on the side cover. I hope this helps you out.

Some Poulan Pros have an adjuster screw on the front of the engine case right beside the bar, some have a tool less adjuster on the clutch cover, and some have a slot in the bar for adjusting the chain tension.


I hope this helps you out.

How do I tighten chain on Model Poulan 2050. Can't seem to get tight enough.


Hold the nose up!
c581361.gif Chain Adjustment
  1. Make sure the chain brake is off (gloves will protest your fingers).
  2. If necessary, loosen the bar nuts that are clamping the clutch cover in place (or whatever holds the clutch cover and bar on). They don't need these really loose - finger tight will do.
  3. Ease the tension adjustment until the chain is obviously loose.
  4. Using one hand, hold the nose of the bar up.
  5. While holding the nose up, adjust the tensioner so that the center of the chain just touches the underside of the bar, add a touch more.
  6. Continue holding the nose of the bar up & tighten up the bar nuts / bolts / quick-release system. HTH
