How to adjust a poulon pro chain saw 46cc 20" chain tighting


First, I'd read the manual if in doubt. No matter the type of adjuster, tool-less or not, you loosen the bar nuts, tighten the adjuster until the chain just touches the bar on the bottom (while holding the bar nose up) then tighten the bar nuts. Chain should move easily.
Re Poulan chain tightening. Be sure it's oiled and sharp, of course.

How to tighten chain on 4620avx poulan pro


First, RTFM- read the manual. Lost it? No problem, download it from Poulan PRO website page for PP4620avx. Pick a version you like, save and read it. Google is your friend.
Chain Adjustment Part cut and pasted as follows:
Adjusting the tension:
Chain tension is very important. Chain stretches during use. This is especially true during the first few times you use your saw. Always check chain tension each time you use and refuel your saw.
1. Lift lever on bar knob and turn counter-clockwise 1.5-2 turns to loosen clutch cover.
2. Turn adjusting wheel (downward direction) to tension chain until chain solidly contacts bottom of guide bar rail. Lift tip of guide bar while adjusting tension. Tighten chain Adjusting Wheel
3. Use a screwdriver to move chain around guide bar to ensure all links are in bar groove.
4. While lifting tip of guide bar, tighten bar knob securely (clockwise).
Hand tighten only.

Be careful not to destroy the adjustment mechanism. When it breaks, go for a clutch cover with the simple adjuster that needs a "scrench". Longer term, learn how to search this info. Saves time. Now you can work on sharpening chains- very important.

Chain keeps poppin off


These are the instructions for adjusting the chain. They are taken directly from the manual available at http://ep.yimg.com/ty/cdn/razorama/e100e200e300manual.pdf

To adjust the chain:
1. Loosen the axle
2. Loosen the brake anchor (this is attached with the small bolt in the long slot on the left side of the rear fork)
3. Tighten the tension adjusters on the axle 1/8 to 1/4 turn to tension the chain. Tighten both adjusters the exact same amount to maintain the wheel alignment.
Note: this system of adjusters is common to motorcycles and BMX
bicycles so I your are not familiar with it, if you know anyone who is,
they would not have a problem adjusting it for you.
Chain tension: The chain should be "just not-quite snug" in other
words, not taut or sloppy loose. BE CAREFUL NOT TO ADJUST TOO TIGHT. The tensioning system can easily impart too much tension and snap the chain or bend the motor output shaft. Turn the adjusters 1/8 to 1/4 turn at a time and recheck the tension each time.
4. Once the tension is good, tighten the axle and brake anchor bolt. Test run the scooter. Readjust as needed.

Instructions
    • 1 Measure the chain's tension with a ruler. Move the center point of the bottom half of the drive chain with your hand. Take a measurement of the chain's movement as you push the chain up and down as far as it will go. The chain should have a free range of movement between 0.8 to 1.2 inches. If the chain's free range is greater than 1.2 inches, you need to tighten the chain. Alternatively, loosen the chain if it has less than 0.8 inches of free movement.
    • 2 Loosen the large nut on the left side of the rear axle with a 32 mm socket and a socket wrench. If more leverage is needed to loosen the nut, use a long-handled breaker bar.
    • 3 Loosen the chain adjuster blocks on both side of the rear swing arm with a pair of 10 mm wrenches. Hold the blocks' adjustment bolt's head steady with one wrench and loosen the bolt's lock nut with the other wrench.
    • 4 Turn both adjustment bolts an equal number of turns with a 10 mm wrench to adjust the chain's tension. Turn the adjustment bolts clockwise to loosen the chain, or counterclockwise to tighten the chain. Check that the edge of both chain adjuster blocks are evenly aligned with the adjustment marks imprinted on the swing arm.
    • 5 Check the chain's range of free movement again. Make adjustments as needed until the chain has a free range of movement between 0.8 and 1.2 inches.
    • 6 Hold the adjustment bolts steady with a 10 mm wrench and tighten their lock nuts against the chain adjuster blocks with a second 10 mm wrench. Tighten the axle nut to 72.5 foot-pounds with a 32 mm socket and a torque wrench. Check the chain's tension again.

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!

Cannot move the chain by hand after the bar has been tightened.


First be sure the chain is on going in the right direction. When looking at the bottom of the bar the sharp tooth should be going towards the motor. When you put chain back on are the chain teeth properly engaged in the sprocket on the motor. Remove the cover again, check that teeth are in sprocket. Make sure pin from adjuster screw is engaged in the hole in the bar. Before you tighten the cover bolts, make sure chain will turn by hand. If not adjust the adjusting screw. Once adjusted, tighten cover bolts. Check again after tightening bar.

Loose chain


Loosen the axle nut and the lock nuts for the chain adjusters on each side of the swingarm. Turn the adjuster to move the rear wheel to the rear to tighten the chain.

You want to adjust the chain so that you have 1 inch up and down play in the chain. By this I mean 1/2" above center and 1/2" below center of the chain as it sits on the bike, 1" up and down inclusive. Adjustment should be made at the point where the chain is the tightest. Roll the rear wheel while checking the chain tension. Find the tightest point to make your adjustment.

Move both chain adjusters the same amount to keep wheel straight within the swingarm. Once adjusted, roll the wheel a couple of turns and check the adjustment of the chain again. Once finished, tighten adjuster lock nuts and retorque the axle nut to 50 foot pounds of torque.

Good Luck, Steve

How to tighten a loose chain


To tighten a loose chain you need to pull the cotter key pin from the rear axle then loosen but do not remove the nut. It just has to be loose enough to slide in the swingarm. At this point there are tension adjusters on the ends of the swing arm you tighten them to take the slack out of the chain. NOT TO TIGHT! You should have 1 inch of play in the chain this is up down play not front to back. I push the chain up the highest it can go and measure how far it falls. NOTE: TURN THE TENSION ADJUSTERS THE SAME AMOUNT THE SAME DIRECTION IF THE AXLE IS TWISTED YOU WILL THROW THE CHAIN. This can make for a bad six months!

Cannot tighten the chain bar


Make sure the bar is positioned on the bar adjusting pin before you tighten cover. Adjust tension with bar adjusting screw, then tighten bar bolts.
