You need to loosen the two hold down bolts on the side the chain is coming out from and loosen the adjuster which should be a flat tip screwdriver head. make sure the chain is properly routed on the bar and the drive socket. that means the triangle shaped flanges need to be in the slots in the sprocket and the grooves on the bar and the slots on the tip (end) of the bar. the gradually tighten the adjuster until the chain can just be lifted off the bar until you can barely see the end of the triangle flange. if its improperly routed or to tight or too loose damage or injury can result. it might be best to find a repair shop or a neighbor to walk you through it the first time. properly mounted it should turn easily by hand with a glove on and also when running. if the end starts to smoke while your running it the chain is too tight. if it wont turn at all its too tight or improperly routed. always wear hearing protection, gloves and protective eyewear and no loose clothing while operating a chain saw. they can cause serious injury or death if not properly maintained or operated. good luck.

After chain came off, I replaced it, put cover back, but could not tighten it (i.e. the tension). Knob kept going around and around.

It depends on the make and model of the saw but it usually means the tensioning mechanism is at fault and may be the cause of the chain coming off in the first place. If it is a normal screwdriver tightening mechanism then it is likely the thread on the screw to the lug, that goes into the chain bar, has seen better days and needs replacing. Sthill and Husqvana parts are readily available and I would change both the screw and the lug. If it is a saw with so called easy tensioning mechanism, where you tighten a wheel to tension the chain, it is likely the gear mechanism in the cover (for Sthil) is worn and needs replacing. My experience is that the mechanism does not stand up to lots of use and it is far better to get rid of it and replace with a normal tensioning screw and lug but you will also need to replace the cover. Hope this helps

I do not know how to replace the chain on a husquavarna 450e chain saw and no one is willing to tell me how to do it.

Before replacing a chain saw chain you must ensure that you disconnect the sparkplug lead. Remove the chain saw cover which is located at the motor end using the tool that came with it. A spanner socket remove the 2 nuts that are the same size and that will loosen the chain arm and chain itself. Note the direction of the chain teeth as the new chain must go back in the correct manner . Now reverse the installation the same way you remove it. After replacing the chain you need to tension the blade allow about a 5 mm slack and there is a tension screw located to the side of the cover you removed. Again it's best to refer to a authorized dealer if unsure.

The chain came off the track how do i get it back on

There are two nuts on the side of the saw. Loosen, slide bar back slightly, then replace chain. When replacing chain, do the opposite and don't tighten too much. When you pull on chain in the centre, there should be at least ¼ inch of daylight. Make sure the two nuts are tight and check tension(¼ gap) occasionally. good luck

Okay. Thanks to Guru, the handlebars were easy to fix. Maybe shouldn't try to ride this thing daily on the road, because now the chain came off. I put it back on, but need to see if there is an easy way...

hi, it sounds to me like the bike has been ridden hard and needs the chain replacing due to it strecthing. on the swing arm at the back is their two bolts sticking out the end of each swing arm their should be one in one side of the swing arm and one in the other side of the swing arm, this is right at the very back of the swing arm.
if you find these then these are the adjusters for the back wheel you then need to loosen the back wheel bolt but dont take it out then adjust these adjusters by the same amount do it in half a turn a time you need to do both the same else the back wheel wont be level keep tightening them in and this will then pull the wheel back and this will tighten the chain if its all ready adjusted fully then the chain is scrap and needs replacing, if you dont have adjusters then the chain needs replacing, it will keep coming off if its slack

you can cause damage to the bike if the chain comes off whilst riding at speed so it may be best to get the chain before you use the bike

Replacing The Chain On my Husqvarma Chain Saw

Release the chain brake. Remove the clamping nuts on the cover and back off the chain adjustment CCW several turns. That should free the cover and allow the bar and chain to be free. Hope this helps!

Chain broke off ceiling fan

Is it broken off inside the pull switch? If so, I would recommend replacing the switch. The chain attatchment assembly is riveted onto the electrical part of the switch. It is possible to drill out the rivets to separate the two sides of the assembly to replace the chain, however you would need to use small bolts with nuts to reattatch pieces together after installing new chain. It's a pain in the back side.
(of course all this repair work needs to be completed after removing the fan from its ceiling location and disconnecting the wiring)

Replacing Remington Electric chain saw blade

Where the bar meets the body of the saw there is an adjustment lug that will either push the bar outward tightening the chain or may be retracted allowing slack in the chain. When backed off (loosened) sufficiently, the chain may be removed for replacement. In order to use this feature, however, there are two bolts that secure the bar to the body that must be loosened prior to any adjustment and tightened bach up after making adjustments to the chain. The above will be enough to remove and replae the chain. If you are taking off the bar (that the chain runs on), you will need to remove the two bolts that were just loosened for the chain adjustment (above).

1995 GMC safari V6 When does the timing belt need replacing

sorry i didnt see the TIMING belt in the title -
GMC recommends replacing Timing belt at 71,000 miles....
however your particular vehicle may have a timing CHAIN.

The 4.3L engine is the only engine covered by this guide which uses a timing chain and gear (sprocket) assembly to turn the camshaft. The 2.5L engine uses a direct gear drive (without a chain).

Only replace the chain if after inspecting it - it is worn or damaged!
You don't adjust timing chain-you replace it or the tensioner
