There should be an Alignment Adjustment setting. Check the guide, band alignment, slot adjustments. The base plate alignment must be horizontal. Lay a small LEVEL on the base tray to see if it is tilted somewhat?

Hit pothole and now tire makes clicking noise and tire slants inward

If you feel that you've hit the hole that hard, you should have the wheel and suspension checked by a professional. The strut or control arm may be bent and in need of replacement, but that's only if you've really hammered it.

I have purchased Poulon pro 42cc 18 inch chainsaw. I am extremely satisfied with my chainsaw until now. I have only owned it for about two months. I only used it maybe 10 times for easy tasks. my chainsaw...

The chain needs sharpened or replaced. You can purchase the tools from any hardware store, and sharpen the chain yourself in about 15 minutes. Don't worry, your saw is just fine!

05 deuce, front end shakes, think its neck bearings? I put lots of grease in fitting, it took quite a bit, think it might have been dry. How do I change neck bearings?

There's a lot of things that I'd check before I started tearing into the steering head of the bike. Have you had your front wheel balanced and the bearings checked in it? Is the tire seated properly on the wheel? There's more to a front suspension system than merely changing the bearings out. Unless you've been using a pressure washer on the bike, odds are nothing is wrong with the bearings. I've restored many bikes built in the 60's and never found a bad set of steering head bearings and they didn't have grease fittings on them. The tension of the steering head bearings have a particular setting on them. Called the "Fall-Away" setting, it is how far the front end will turn before it "falls" all the way to the fork stops. At least the earlier bikes had this. Since I've never had to mess with the steering head of a bike as new as yours I can't tell you how to change the bearings. But, you can got to and look up the suspension system on your bike to get an exploded view.

Good Luck

My saw is not moving up and down smoothly(jamming)tight

First off, blow out the saw completely with compressed air to remove any debris that may be lodged in the mechanism. While doing so, pivot the table back and forth to be sure you reach into all crevices. Then try spraying the hinge area with silicone lubricant or WD40 and working the saw up and down to work the lube into the mechanism. Even though the bearings are sealed this can alleviate friction, and periodic maintenance with silicone spray will make it more of a joy to use.
If that doesn't seem to help, here is a link to a parts breakdown to guide you in examining the possible source of the problem. Check to ensure that the main pivot points are securely fixed with locking screws in place, make sure the compression spring is not being interfered with, etc.
If you're not mechanically handy, I'd recommend taking it in for service if there's nothing obvious you can determine that is preventing the smooth operation. But if you go through it piece by piece and lube the appropriate friction points, you'll probably be able to free things up considerably.
Let me know how it goes,

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Abs light and brake light on goes off once in awhile but keeps comin on

Just had that of your wheel bearings is going bad..The ABS Sensor is a magnetic device sensing teeth going by inside the "wheel bearing assembly" . If there's side to side play or top to bottom play ..the sensor will pick it up and ABS light will flicker on and off or stay on. So, jack up your front wheels and check for play also, listen for bearing noise. The Fix: Replace the bad wheel bearing assemble (it comes with new sensor ) You may want to swing by your local garage and have them pre-loosen your 35mm Hub nut before you start the repair. YouTube has a good video to help with repair.
One last note: Sometimes sensors go bad , interal wiring pulling calipers off and rotar will expose sensor...take it off with an allen wrench and bench ck it for continuity.. ( I've had a new one go bad on my new bearing assembly ..broken internal wire ..I just cut both ends off and re-wired it...)
