How do i tighten the chain


Wear gloves when handling the chain (or have a lot of band aids).
You will need a 7/16 or 1/2 inch wrench and a screwdriver. Lay the saw on its side so the bar is up. There will be two studs with nuts on them. Both nuts are the same size. Look at the front of the motor housing cover on the outside of the chain bar and you will see a screw head. Loosen the two nuts holding the bar (just a few turns) and turn the screw so the chain tightens. When you pull up on the chain at the middle of the bar the chain should not pull up more than 1/16" (one sixteenth of an inch). If the dogs on the inside of the chain pull clear of the track around the outside of the bar, the chain is too loose. Once you have the chain tension correct, tighten the two bolts, and tighten them good and tight. If the chain adjustment is correct, when you pull the chain away from the bar at the center of the bar, it should pull up about 1/16 of an inch and you should not be able to pull the dogs out of the slot around the edge of the bar. You should be able to pull the chain around the bar (as if the saw were running).

How to remove the chain from a husqvarna 235e chainsaw?

Like this or pretty close.

  1. Cock brake while expanding chain brake binder by pulling brake handle towards left-hand (wrap-around) handle grip, hard, until it locks in place.

  2. Loosen 2 brake-asssembly-and- bar retaining nuts but do not remove yet.

  3. Unscrew (turn CCW) bar adjustment screw on front face of unit in order to shorten bar and slacken saw chain.

  4. Slip chain off bar over bar tip and towards inward side of bar.

  5. Remove two nuts loosened in step 2 and pull brake assembly and bar straight out and off bar mounting studs.

  6. While rotating clutch/brake-drum, maneuver saw chain off sprocket and around drum perimeter to remove from saw.

  7. Repeat/reverse steps 6 thru 1 in that order to reassemble.

My chain keeps popping off


When breaking in a new saw, it is necessary to check the chain often, because the new chain will stretch with use. The chain or bar might have suffered some damage when the chain came off, so here's what you need to do.

1. Drain the fuel from the gas tank (to avoid a leak).
2. Lay the saw on it's side so the bar is up.
3. Remove the 2 nuts holding the side plate on the saw.
4. Remove the side plate and the bar and chain.
5. Remove the chain from the bar.
6. Carefully check the slot in the bar where the chain rides... clean up any burrs with a file and make sure that the slot has not been widened at any point.
7. carefully check the INSIDE circumfrence of the chain, inspecting the dogs that ride in the slot in the bar for damage. GENTLY file any burrs off of the dogs but don.t remove any more material than you have to.
8. Reinstall the bar on the saw.
9. Oil and reinstall the chain on the bar making sure that the cutting teeth are facing in the correct direction (The cutting teeth on the top should face toward the tip of the saw).
10. Adjust the screw at the front of the side plate so that the nib threaded on the screw goes through the hole in the bar when you put the side plate on. (This is the chain tensioner). When you are sure that the side plate is on and the chain tensioner nib is protruding through the hole in the bar, snug the two nuts on the studs protruding through the side plate (do not tighten them at this point).
11. Make sure that the two nuts are not too tight, as now you are going to adjust the chain tension. Tighten the chain tensioner screw (at the front of the side cover) until you can pull up on the chain at the center of the bar and the chain pulls up 1/16 of an inch... no more. The dogs should not come fully out of the slot in the bar when you pull up on the chain. Adjust the tensioner until those parameters are met. Now tighten the two nuts on the studs sticking through the side plate... 170 - 200 inch pounds should do it... don't strip the studs.
12. remove the spark plug wire from the spark plug, and try to manually run the chain around the bar. Any roughness must be examined and repaired... the chain must run smoothly on the bar, and the chain must not bee loose... remember 1/16 of an inch and the dogs cannot come out of the slot in the bar.
13. Run the saw, and if it runs properly, go ahead and cut your wood.

14. Check the chain often (every 2 to 3 minutes of cutting) and adjust the chain when necessary. The chain will eventually wear and stretch to where you don't have to check it but every 1/2 hour or so... eventually means about 10 to 15 hours of actual cutting time

If you get into trouble during this procedure, you can look up ""replacing a chainsaw chain" on the web or E-mail me at

Good luck

Chain wont tighten


When you can't adjust the chain any more, the chain has stretched so far that you will need to remove the chain and replace it, or the tensioner pawl has slipped out of the bar and the chain tensioner will not work. Let's start with the easier solution. First lay the saw on it's left side so the bar is up and you can see two studs with nuts on them. These nuts hold the bar and side cover on. Remove the nuts (a 1/2 inch socket is what you need) and remove the side cover. The side cover holds the chain tensioner. Check to see that when you put the side cover on, the pawl on the chain tensioner fits into the small hole in the bar. If it does not, adjust the chain tensioner screw (below one of the chain retention stud holes in the side cover) until the pawl fits into the hole in the bar, and reinstall the side plate. You'll be able to adjust the chain tension now. If the chain tension is still too loose when the back of the pawl (visible through the slot in the side cover) is at the back of the slot, it is time to replace the chain as it has stretched beyond adjustment parameters.

Hope this helped.

How do you put a new chain on A 3516

Hi there,
The first thing you need to do is clean up the saw with air,be careful around the bar oilier because they get plugged up if your not careful.
Look for two studs on the right side of the saw, there should be nuts holding the bar down.They may be under a cover.Loosen them up but don't take them off.Look for an adjustment screw on the back of the bar and back it off about 1/2 an inch.Those bar nuts should be just loose enough so the bar can be slid back 1/2 an inch.Look at the chain on the bottom of the bar the sharp part of the teeth should be pointed back at the motor.Take the old chain off with gloves.The saw should be on its side with a block holding the tip of the bar up level.Put the new chain on the drive sprocket first then have someone hold the saw while you put the chain around the nose of the bar.There is a groove in the bar that guides the chain as it moves around the bar.At this point turn the saw upright and grab the nose and pull until the chain slips into place and tighten the adjusting screw while moving the bar up and down so it will be straight when you get ready to tighten the bar.The chain should have 1/8 of slack in the chain when pulled away from the bar.Pull the chain by hand with a stick(the way it moves when you cut) to see if it binds any where on the saw or bar. You can do the whole operation with the saw in an upright position if you want.I hope this is clear enough for you.Thank You for choosing

How to replace chain on eager ****** chainsaw

Remove the side cover on the saw Should be 2 nuts on studs

Either in the front between the bar and the saw body or in between the nuts on the side is a chain tightener. Use a flat bladed screwdriver to loosen the tightener and remove the chain from the drive and the bar. NOTE the direction of the chain teeth.
Replace with new or sharpened chain Reinstall the side cover Install the nuts DO NOT TIGHTEN just snug to contact Adjust chain to where you can just pull the chain free of the bar at the center of the bar length Tighten the nuts
Happy cutting!

Where is the oil discharge hole on silver eagle 250-14?

If you take the bolts off the studs that the bar sits over, the ones you loosen to tighten the chain, you can then take off the housing over the chain sprocket. Loosen the chain adjusting screw, Pull the bar and chain off of the saw. The oil discharge hole is behind a plate on the back side of the bar about where the studs for the bar are. There is a small hole in the bar that the oil is injected into. This needs to be kept clean for the chain oiler to work properly.

Threaded stud that holds chain bar broke off, how do I get it off.

If it is broken off at the saw, you need to get an ez out to remove it - follow the instructions with it. pretty unusual for both studs to break off at the same time. Hope this helps you, Rick
