Afraid not much here it is a Chinese chainsaw. You need to contact Trueshopping co uk for parts which very well be hard to come by if anything like what we deal here in the USA on these kinds of equipment.
We have a company called Harbor Freight that sells equipment and when it breaks down can even get the spares that we need. So we have similar problems which why I tell my customers not to buy anything at HF unless they willing to just it away when it breaks.
If the saw is fitted with a decompression switch you need to decompress the cylinder after every pull to make it easier to start. If it doesn't have a decompression switch you need to put the saw on the ground and put your right foot firmly into the handle opening, place your left hand on the top hand bar, grip the pull handle and pull out slowly until you feel a solid wall or compression and then pull straight up fast and hard for about 8 - 10". Make sure the brake is on when starting. I have an older Husky saw and this is how I start it. It has a short pull cycle so don't try to give it a long pull like a weed whipper!
You start by slackening the bar nut/nuts so they are finger tight, there will then be an adjuster screw either between the bar nuts, or on the front of the saw level with the centre of the bar, turn the screw clockwise to increase the tenion on the chain, when you are happy with the tention re tighten the nut/nuts.
If your blade comes off it either needs adjustment or the blade is stretched to the point where it needs replacement. Try adjusting the blade first, the handbook gives full instructions on this and it is just a case of loosening off the lock screw, turning the eccentric adjuster until the guide link that slides in the guide bar just clears the groove. Re-tighten the lock screw. Make sure that the saw cannot start or kick and wear gloves when working on the chain.
I have that exact same saw. The mix you need to use is 40:1. That is 40 parts gas to 1 part oil. I have tried finding a handbook for mine and have had no luck at all. Not much out there for McCulloch saws. I will try again to find one for you though. It is a very good saw! I have had very good luck with it with not many problems. One problem I did have though, is that they put really cheap fuel lines in them that will crack on you after a couple of years. It's an easy fix, but it will leave you baffled on what is wrong with it.
