Turn the chain inside out as much as possible, use a flat file to remove the burrs. Once all drive links are deburred it can be use again.
Is it tight? Gently pulled in the center bottom of the bar it give about 1/8 inch. There should be almost no space between the bar and chain when not pulled.

Do you have to pull the engine to replace 1999 Sable 3.0 DOHC timing chain?

You can pretty much look at the front of the motor & ask yourself,
can all the necessary parts come off with no clearance to work

I would say dropping the motor out the bottom complete with transaxle
& subframe, as a complete unit would be necessary

The question is --why the timing chain,never changed oil very often since the car was new & ruined the engine?

The cam actuators & cams are clogged with sludge,that should never
been allowed to happen

Need more than just the chains replaced

Saw chains, stretch?

rule of thumb, NEVER put a chain back on a chainsaw that has been thrown off.its very dangerous and destructive. It ruines the drive teeth and put back on will ruin the drive sprocket and bar. The chain is the cheapest part and is first to go and can do the most damage. Spend the money, it will save you a bunch

  1. Remove Your Timing Chain
    • 1 Check your owner's manual for the recommended mileage for replacing your timing chain. Replacement for a Nissan Altima is 60,000 miles.
    • 2 Locate the timing chain. Replace it if the automatic chain adjuster (also known as the tensioner) is damaged or worn.
    • 3 Drain the cooling system and disengage the negative battery cable. Undo the spark plug wires and set the No. 1 piston at "Top Dead Center" (TDC) of the compression stroke.
    • 4 Disconnect the engine undercover, vacuum and fuel hoses, harness and connectors, drive belts, power steering reservoir, alternator and bracket, upper radiator hose, air duct, front exhaust tube, intake manifold collector supports, collector and exhaust manifold and the distributor.
    • 5 Prop up the oil pan and take out the front engine mounting, the valve cover, camshaft sprockets, cam bearing caps, camshafts, cylinder head bolts (reverse the installation order), cam sprocket cover, upper chain tensioner, chain guides and chain, idler sprocket bolt, cylinder head, intake manifold and cylinder head gasket and the steel oil pan.
    • 6 Place a steel cutter between the steel and aluminum oil pans. Slip the cutter around the oil pan's edge. Disengage the steel oil pan, baffle plate, oil strainer and the front tube.
    • 7 Secure the car on jack stands and place a seal cutter in between the oil pan and cylinder block. Slip the cutter around the oil pan's edge.
    Install Your Timing Chain
    • 8 Reconnect the crankshaft sprocket, oil pump drive spacer, idler sprocket and lower timing chain. Position the lower timing chain on the sprockets and line up the mating marks.
    • 9 Rub on an unbroken bead of liquid gasket and put in a new front cover and oil seal. Secure the bolt at 105 to 112 foot pounds (142 to 152 Nm).
    • 10 Eliminate any old material from the pan and cylinder block mounting surfaces. Rub on a 3.5 to 4.5mm bead of liquid gasket over the oil pan and cylinder block.
    • 11 Attach the upper timing chain to the idler sprockets and secure the cylinder head bolts.
    • 12 Refill the cooling system and add clean oil in the engine.
    • 13 Hook up the negative battery cable and any other disconnected parts or items. Start the engine and look for leaks.
Tips & Warnings
  • Procedures for replacing timing chains in Nissan Altimas vary slightly depending on engine size.
  • Make sure the new timing chain matches the chain you are removing.

Carb adjustment on husky 142

Did anyone ever think about looking on ebay for this tool? I payed .99 for one, free shipping. It's a lot easier than trying to rig up a home made tool.

What part number oregon chain do i need for a cs-52 john deere saw. They keep sending me the wrong john deere chain witch is three links short. thanks Vern.

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.

When I pull the rope to start it the engine doesn't want to turn

Remove the spark plug and retry pulling the engine through. If it spits out a fair quantity of liquid fuel, you have a flooding condition in the carburetor--usually a defective lower chamber diaphragm. If it still wont turn, then suspect that the engine has been run on straight gasoline without admixed oil--bad news!!. If this is so, it will have ruined the cylinder, piston, and ring(s) at a minimum. Compare labor and new parts against another comparable saw. Hope this helps and good luck!

Have e series 142 saw, how do you engage the chain after starting and saw is running

I'm not familiar with that particular model, but every chainsaw I've ever used has a safety bar or shield that must be pulled back (toward the operator) to engage the chain drive. It is a handy feature when you have to climb up to cut something: you can leave the engine running with the safety engaged, then pull it back when you're ready to cut.

I am having problems with my husky 142 with the .043 gauge bar

have been running saws for over 20 years and have found you can run pretty much any pitch chain on any saw (as long as the lengths matre up)

think about what you are going to be mostly cutting tho. if its softish wood get a chisel type chain.
have fun
