You do not tell us which model Echo, that limits how much help we can provide. The head is probably in the oil tank.

Post 6 in this thread is quite good. I have seen a post that required repair of the casting (with photos) to repair. I was not able to find it.
Look closely at the old one, once removed, See if it has some sealer applied

How do i tighten the chain please


Under the protective cover of the bar and chain on the motor are the nuts / bolts and chain tension adjustment screws.

Depending on model (you didn't include yours so generic instructions follow); removing the nuts / bolts that hold the cover in place will allow the bar and chain to be removed - or to adjust the chain tension on the bar with a long screw for that purpose. Once the tension is set with the adjustment screw it is locked into place when the cover is re-secured with the nuts / bolts.

If you need more specific help - please provide your make and model chainsaw.

Tip

Chain loose on your chainsaw?


Hi there,

Chainsaw bars get loose all the time. This can create a dangerous situation.

Tightening the chain is done through the positioning of the bar. The further away from the drive gear it extends, the tighter the chain is.

The are usually two nuts holding the bar on. These need to be loosened slightly to allow the bar movement.

Depending on your model there may be a guard over them. Remove it.

Once the nuts are loose, locate the tensioning screw. It will be relatively small, located adjacent to and facing parallel to the bar.

This screw is attached to a metal lip that in turn is attached to the bar. The screw remains in one place while the lip moves up down.

Start spinning. Keep going until the chain is tight.

Tighten the Bar Nuts, replace the guard if necessary.

Now go slice some wood.

Best regards
Mike

How to change a chain


First of all, make sure the saw is off. Also, before removing bolts, make sure the chain brake is not engaged (the chain should move freely).
Remove the guide bar side panel. Using a scwrench or wrench, unscrew the nuts and remove the plate to access the chain.

The side plate on most chainsaws will be held on by two nuts. Loosen the blade adjustment screw (a pin that is usually driven by a screw and pushes the blade out from the chainsaw to keep the chain tension tight).

The old chain is ready to be removed now that the sprocket plate is off of the saw. Pull the nose of the chainsaw's bar away from the chainsaw to release it from the tensioner.

Remove the old chainsaw chain.

The chain will easily remove from the guide bar with all that slack in it. Note the orientation of the cutting edges of the chain so you put the new one on the same way.

Pull the drive links out of the guide bar and slip the other end of the chain around the clutch drum.

Steps to Install a New Chainsaw Chain
Thread the new chain onto the saw.

Carefully thread your new or recently sharpened chainsaw chain around the chainsaw's clutch drum, making sure that the drive links engage in the sprocket.



Thread the rest of the drive links into the guide bar and around its nose, making sure all links are in the guide bar slot.
Align the guide bar.

With the chain properly threaded along the clutch drum and guide bar, put some tension into it by pulling on the nose of the guide bar away from the chainsaw.



While pulling the guide bar, make sure to seat it onto the saw's adjustment pin.

Replace the side plate.

The side plate is ready to go back on as long as the guide bar is properly positioned beneath.

Replace the plate and the nuts that hold it into position, but do not tighten the nuts down all the way yet. The guide bar must be allowed to move a little while the chain is tightened to the correct tension.
Tighten the chain to the correct tension. Use the tensioning screw to the side of the guide bar to adjust the tension on the chainsaw chain.



Finish tightening the side plate nuts.

The chainsaw chain replacement is now complete.


And here is a great overall reference guide to keeping a chainsaw sharp and running. Sharpening a chainsaw chain is a great way to extend the life and is less expensive and easier than replacing a chain. There are small grinding tools (like a dremel) that can be run off a small 12v battery or your vehicle battery that allow for quick 'tune-ups' on your chain if you are out cutting and need to sharpen your chain.

How do I tighten the chain on my remington 16in electric chainsaw?


There are two nuts that hold the bar in place. They should be 7/16. You need to loosen these nuts and then you can adjust where the bar sits with a flat bladed screwdriver. It works on the right-y tight-y principle. The adjustment screw should be at the front of the chainsaw right next to the bar. The chain should be able to be lifted from the groove in the bar and snap back into place. Then re tighten the 7/16 nuts and you should be back in business.

Chain jumps of bar when starting to cut.


check to make sure that the chain tension is correct. when tightening the bar bolt nuts - lift up slightly on the bar as you tighten the nuts,, and then check the chain tension of the chain.
if you pull up or down on the chain - it should only rise about 1/8th of a inch off of the bar when you pull and snap back into place when you release it.
one other thing to check -- make sure the bar groove is clean and clear of dirt and debris ( use a bar groove cleaner or a small flat blade screwdriver to clear out ).
and,, check the chain to be sure that none of the guides are bent or mis-shaped.
happy cutting,

Need size of guide bar nut on model cs-330t


I went here, typed CS-330T in the search bar and found 6 IPLs. None of them list or display bar nuts. Odd!

I suggest you take your saw into your local NAPA Auto Parts store. You might also contact Echo and suggest they add bar nuts to their IPLs for the benefit of the next guy. HTH
