These fit my Pioneer, The bar goes between them; the flared portions go toward the engine and clutch cover respectively (away from the bar).

At first glance they appear the same, they are not. 430892 has a slot cut that aligns with the oil slot of the saw case. 430893 has no oil slot and fits against the clutch cover. There are some extra parts shown, please ignore these.

How to install a new blade for my 10 inch electric chainsaw - model 358-34010

Loosen the chain adjuster and remove the bar bolts. Remove the side cover. Remove the existing chain. Thread the new chain over the sprocket making sure the drive cogs are engaging the sprocket correctly, then thread it over the end of the bar ensuring the drive cogs are inserted correctly in the bar groove. Install the bar/chain onto the bolts aligned with the chain adjustment pin and install the cover. Snug the bolts and tighten the chain with the guide bar tip elevated. Once you are satisfied with the chain tension, tighten the bar bolts and....... VOILA.... you are done. Head for that pesky neighbors tree that drops leaves in your yard.....

Of course, make sure the chain orientation is correct !!!! I have seen them installed backwards on the shelf in the big box stores....

How do I make sure chain oils lubricating chain

You must start your chainsaw and hold the guide bar about 3 to 5cm from the ground and give it full revs. If you touch the surface, you can start sharpening again. While on full revs, a line of oil should show on the surface. If not, clean the guide bar and the hole where the oil should enter to lubricate the guide bar and make sure there are no blockages.

Friction ring assembly of remington model eleven

Examine the chain saw to verify that the chain is still attached to the sprocket. If any part of the chain is not on the sprocket the chainsaw will not cut correctly.

Check the tension of the chain. If the lower part of the chain drops away from the guide bar, you will need to increase the tension. Remove the shield on the side case and loosen the nuts on the guide bar with the wrench. Pull the guide bar to increase tension on the chain and then tighten the nuts.

Clean the chain if it appears dirty. A dirty chain will not cut as efficiently as a clean chain. Loosen the tension on the chain and then take the chain off of the guide bar. Soak the chain in a solvent, such as mineral spirits.

Examine the sprocket on the chain saw. If it appears worn, bent or out of pitch, a new sprocket will be needed.

Examine the chain to see if there are any damaged drive links. Replace the chain if too many of the drive links are damaged because the sprocket will not turn the chain.

Examine the guide bar to see if it appears crooked or is out of alignment. Remove the nuts from the guide bar by following Step 2. Take off the old guide bar and then install a new one.

Sharpen the chain if it looks shiny. The shine on the chain indicates that the steel that is underneath the chrome plating on the chain has worn away. Use a round metal file on the steel until there is a thin overhang of chrome over the cutting edge of the chain. This will restore the cutting edge

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.

    Blade wont tighten on craftsman elictric chainsaw

    Sounds like the chain guides are missing.  They're flat steel parts, one on each side of the bar...Here's a husqvarna diagram:  Select side cover, guide plates.  Could be called anything by Craftsman!  If you have one of these on each side of the bar, then I'd guess you're missing washers under the nut(s).  Sears should have this available; I'm sure I have a blow-up diagram on microfische if it's an older model.

    I have a 99 dodge intrepid that threw a rod and my father-in-law and I have been trying to time the car for a year now. We get number one piston up but the mark on the oil pump doesnt line up with the mark...

    I'm not sure what you may be "doing wrong", but here is the manufacturer procedure for aligning the timing marks.
    ^Refer to this diagram during step 12.
    ^Refer to this diagram during step 13.
    ^Refer to this diagram for step 19.

    1. Align crankshaft sprocket timing mark to the mark on oil pump housing. NOTE: Lubricate timing chain and guides with engine oil before installation.
    2. Place left side primary chain sprocket onto the chain so that the timing mark is located in-between the two (plated) timing links.
    3. Lower the primary chain with left side sprocket through the left cylinder head opening. NOTE: The camshaft sprockets can be allowed to float on the camshaft hub during installation.
    4. Loosely position left side camshaft sprocket over camshaft hub.
    5. Align timing (plated) link to the crankshaft sprocket timing mark.
    6. Position primary chain onto water pump drive sprocket.
    7. Align right camshaft sprocket timing mark to the timing (plated) link on the timing chain and loosely position over camshaft hub.
    8. Verify that all chain timing (plated) links are properly aligned to the timing marks on all sprockets.
    9. Install left side lower chain guide and tensioner arm. Tighten attaching bolts to 28 Nm (250 in. lbs.). NOTE: Inspect oil ring on chain guide access plug before installing. Replace O-ring as necessary.
    10. Install chain guide access plug to left side cylinder head. Tighten plug to 20 Nm (15 ft. lbs.)
    11. NOTE:
    To reset the primary timing chain tensioner, engine oil will first need to be purged from the tensioner.
    12. Purge oil from timing chain tensioner using the following procedure:
    a) Place the check ball end of tensioner into the shallow end of Special Tool 8186.
    b) Using hand pressure, slowly depress tensioner until oil is purged from tensioner.
    13. Reset timing chain tensioner using the following procedure:
    a) Position cylinder plunger into the deeper end of Special Tool 8186.
    b) Apply a downward force until tensioner is reset. NOTE: If oil was not first purged from the tensioner, use slight finger pressure to assist the center arm pin of Special Tool 8186 to unseat the tensioner's check ball. CAUTION: Ensure the tensioner is properly reset. The tensioner body must bottom against the top edge of Special Tool 8186. Failure to properly perform the resetting procedure may cause tensioner jamming.
    14. Install the reset chain tensioner into the right cylinder head.
    15. Position tensioner retaining plate and tighten bolts to 12 Nm (105 in. lbs.).
    16. Starting at the right cylinder bank, insert a 3/8" square drive extension with a breaker bar into intake camshaft drive hub. Rotate camshaft until the camshaft hub aligns to the camshaft sprocket and damper attaching holes. Install the sprocket attaching bolts and tighten to 28 Nm (250 in. lbs.).
    17. Turn the left side camshaft by inserting a 3/8" square drive extension with a breaker bar into intake camshaft drive hub and rotate camshaft until the sprocket attaching bolts can be installed. Tighten sprocket bolts to 28 Nm (250 in. lbs.).
    18. Rotate engine slightly clockwise to remove timing chain slack, if necessary.
    19. To arm the timing chain tensioner: Use a flat bladed pry tool to gently pry tensioner arm towards the tensioner slightly. Then, release the tensioner arm. Verify the tensioner is armed (extends).
    20. Install the timing chain cover, crankshaft damper, and cylinder head covers.
    21. Install camshaft position sensor and connect electrical connector.

    Hope this helps!
