Look at the saw body from the nose of the bar, Just to the left of the bar a slotted screw head should be visible (on clutch cover). That is your tension adjustment.

Chain adjustment

  1. Make sure the chain brake is off (gloves will protest your fingers).
  2. If necessary, loosen the nut that is clamping the guide bar in place (or whatever your saw uses to hold the side plate and bar on with). We don't need these really loose - just finger tight will do.
  3. Ease the tension until the chain is obviously loose.
  4. Using one hand, hold the nose of the bar up.
  5. Now, while holding the nose up, adjust the tension so that the chain just touches the underside of the bar then just a little more.
  6. Continue holding the nose of the bar up & tighten up the clutch cover nut.

Replace mcCulloch chainsaw chain tension screw


It will either be in between the two nuts that secure the guide bar OR alongside the engine block right up next to the guide bar and facing forward. You may have to clean the area of debris and impacted sawdust to find it. Clockwise tightens the chain and counterclockwise loosens it. Elevate the tip of the guide bar with the securing nuts LOOSE a bit while making the adjustment then tighten securely AFTER correct tension is attained.

Mcculloch electramac ems300s chain is loose how to tighten


A link to an OM for a similar model follows:

Tension adjustment is on page 10. All chains are adjusted similarly, this one is reasonably complete, the only addition I suggest is to elevate the nose of the bar when adjusting and tightening. Experience tells me adjustments require many fewer tweaks when the nose is elevated.

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

I have an old mac 110. I believe I need the chain tension adjuster as I am not seeing how to tighten the chain. I can't find my manual so I don't have a part list.


Loosen 2 nuts that are on middle of inside end of bar closest to motor, on retaining plate. Dig out shavings & dirt on outside of that plate there is a recess hole. In it is a adjustment screw to tighten chain. Screw in till it takes up the slack in chain. Retighten 2 nuts when finished.

  6. Continue holding the nose of the bar up & tighten up the bar nuts / bolts / quick-release system. HTH

Look carefully at the picture and your chain, it can be mounted backward; they do not cut when backward.

Chainsaw chain will not tighten on the guide bar


The two nuts on the bolts for the chain bar, need to be loosened.

Then the tension screw is tightened by turning it Clockwise. (To the Right)

If the chain doesn't tighten,

1.Insure that the nuts are loose enough, so that the chain bar may slide.

2.Insure that the tension adjusting screw does not have stripped threads, nor the threaded part of the case it screws through.

Poulan Farmhand chainsaw chain tightens too tight for motor to move chain


Make sure the chain is not over tightened. When adjusting the tightness, ensure there is at least 1/8" of looseness by pulling up on the chain in the middle of the bar and releasing it. If a chain becomes overheated because of leaning on the saw when the chain is dull, or lack of oil on the chain, it may expand in the track and not turn freely.
