It should have unless the bar has been changed. Look closely at the tip and you should see portions of a small wheel as you turn the chain by hand.

Husqvarna 50 chain keeps coming off


Are you adjusting the chain tension correctly?? Make sure the bar in installed correctly with the tension adjustment pin in the appropriate hole. Elevate the tip of the guide bar while adjusting the chain adjustment screw until the chain is snug but not tight. Then tighten the bar bolts without lowering the tip of the bar. Also ensure the drive links are engaging the sprocket correctly.

If the chain is adjusted correctly and the problem still exists, remove the sprocket side cover, bar and chain and inspect the sprocket for extreme wear. Once the sprocket is worn excessively it won't want to engage the drive links of the chain correctly which could be the source of the problem. If so, replace both the sprocket and the chain because the excess wear of the sprocket could have damaged the drive links of the chain and putting an old worn chain back on with a new sprocket will cause the new sprocket to begin wearing prematurely.

Change the chain instructions


General instructions are, if the machine has a chainbrake make sure this is off, loosen the side cover nut/nuts, wind the bar adjuster screw back to slacken the chain, remove the side cover, push the bar back to the sprocket, the chain should now be lose enough to lift it off the tip of the bar and un loop off the sprocket, now loop the new chain over the sprocket and around the tip of the bar, make sure the cutters on the top of the bar are facing away from the saw ( a pushing chain )now re fit the side/chainbrake cover, if the bar adjuster pawl is in the brake/side cover, make sure this aligns with the adjuster hole in the bar, re fit the bar nut/nuts finger tight, wind the adjuster screw in so as the chain sits snuggly all around the bar, with a gloved hand pull the chain around the bar manualy, it should pull smoothly, lift the tip of the bar up and fully tighten the nut/nuts, run the saw, there will be an amount of initial stretch, slacken the bar nut/nuts and re tention.

The blade on my McCulloch Electramac EM250-14 came off. How do I put it back on? Dan Enright


I am not familier with this machine, hoever the principle is the same for most machines, start by removeing the bar nut/nuts, remove the side cover, wind the chain adjuster screw fully back it may be in the saw or in the side cover, push the guide bar fully back, now loop the chain over the sprocket and lay it into the top of the guide bar, and around the tip, the cutting edge of the chain in the top of the guide bar should be facing away from the saw ( the chain rotates clockwise as you look at it ) replace the side cover, make sure the adjuster pawl is in the hole in the guide bar, assemble the nut/nuts finger tight, now adjust the bar so as the chain is touching all the way around the guide bar, with a gloved hand pull the chain around the bar manually to make sure it is properly on the sprocket, re tention the chain if required, lift the tip of the bar and fully tighten the bar nut/nuts, the chain should not sag on the bottom of the guide bar.

What are the steps to replace a chain on a Husqvarna 345 chain saw?


Start by making sure the chain brake is off, pull the hand guard fully back to the top handle, now remove the two 8mm nuts securing the side cover, screw the chain adjuster in the crankcase fully back toward the sprocket, assemble the guide bar over the guide bar bolts and slide it fully back toward the sprocket, now loop the chain over the sprocket and lay it inthe guide bar raiuls and around the guide bar nose, make sure the sharo endge of the cutters on the top of the guide bar are facing away from the machine ( as you loog at it, it rotates clockwise ) now align the hole in the guide bar with the adjuster pawl, re assemble the chainbrake side cover back onto the saw, and fit the bar nuts finger tight, adjust the chain adjuster so as the chain is a snug fit all the way around the guide bar, with a gloved hand pull the chain around the bar manually, so as to make sure it is completly seated in the sprocket and bar rails, re tension if needed, hold the tip if the guide bar up and fully tighten the bar nuts.
Job done.

Chain keeps slipping off saw


Remove the bar and chain. Lay the chain out on a bench or table and examine for sideways bent/broken links, badly damaged cutting teeth, or damaged drive teeth. Inspect the bar chain-groove all the way around for any damage. Make sure the tip sprocket turns freely and is not damaged. Check the sprocket on the clutch drum for hooked teeth or other damage. Clean the small oil passages that feed oil out to the chain groove in the drive end of the bar. Start the engine and check the engine side port where the bar fits to--it should ooze out oil from the small port there. If everything checks ok, re-assemble the bar and chain leaving the cover fasteners finger tight. Adjust the chain until it pulls up to the bar, but not so tight that you can't turn turn it by hand. Tighten the bar fasteners and re-check the chain tension. Start the engine and hold the bar tip near some cardboard--it should throw off a thin line of oil after several moments of running at speed. Hope this helps!

How to replace the chain?


Look on the side of the saw, where the blade/chain enter the plastic case. You will see a nut in there. Loosen the nut, then push the bar backwards towards the saw. It will put slack in the chain and you can pull it off the sprocket/clutch in there. (Use a screwdriver if you can't reach in there with your fingers) and wear gloves... even a dull chain can gouge you if your fingers slip. Once it's off the sprocket, then just pull the whole chain off. To install the new one, put it around the sprocket, make sure the chain guides are lined up with the groove in the bar and on the tip of the bar, then pull out on the bar (away from saw) to take the slack out of the chain. Holding the bar firmly to keep the tension on the chain, tighten the nut again. Bada-bing you're done. Should only take about 5 minutes to change it.

Chain jumps off guide


Remove the bar and chain. Lay the chain out on a bench or table--inspect it for sideways bent or broken links. Check the chain drive teeth for damage as well as the sprocket drive teeth. Inspect the bar chain groove for damage or sideways bending, also the tip sprocket for free turning. Start the engine after cleaning the bar mounting area on the side of the engine, it should ooze out oil after running for a short time. Clean the bar drive-end oil passages which run out to the chain groove. Clean the entire chain groove. If all checks ok, re-assemble the bar and chain, but leave the mounting fasteners finger tight. Tighten the chain until it pulls up to the bar bottom, but not so tight that you can't move the chain by hand. Tighten the bar fasteners firmly and recheck the chain tension. Start the engine and run the bar tip near some cardboard at speed for a few moments--it should throw off a thin line of oil. Hope this helps!

Poulan Super25DA old chainsaw from the mid 70's.


Call your local Power Equipment Dealers and ask if any of them deal with OREGON replacement parts.
OREGON makes clutch drum, chain and bar combinations in the thousands!
NOTE: Along with clutch drum and chain replacement, your bar will need to be changed also, as the sprocket-tip in the nose of the bar will be a different pitch.

Chain tightens up under power to point engine stalls


If you've already tried to tighten the bar tensioning nuts and the bar keeps "creeping" and gets tighter, that is unusual, as most times the bar should get looser, not tighter.

I would suggest you try a new bar and set of tension nuts, or at the very least a new set of tension nuts first.

The problem might be the tip sprocket has worn out (it needs to be lubed every time you add bar & chain oil to the reservoir in the chainsaw). If the tip sprocket is worn badly, you should replace the bar and inspect the cutting chain for excessive wear on drive side of the chain.

Remember that the slightest bit of dirt can cause rapid wear of the bar and chain and quickly ruin it beyond repair.

I hope you find this helpful and best regards!
