Remove the bar and chain. Clean the oil port in the engine side where the bar fits to. Start the engine and look for oil oozing out of the port. If ok, clean the bar drive-end oil passages that run from each large hole out to the chain groove on each side. Clean the entire chain groove, then reassemble the bar and chain. Tighten the chain until it pulls up to the lower bar edge, but not so tight that you can't turn the chain by hand. Recheck tension again after tightening the bar cover nut(s). Start the engine and run at speed for several moments with the bar tip near some cardboard--it should throw off a thin line of oil. Hope this helps!

Great Chain Lube!!


I had read about Progold's MFR Chain Lube and was curious as to how it would work.
Its is fantastic! I cleaned the chain using finish line de-greaser and a "Grunge Brush", love my grunge brush and don't know how I lived with out it.
When I applied the MFR chain lube the chain looked brand new. Which didn't surprise me seeing that I scrubbed the chain clean and oiled it. It has been 2 months and the chain still looks clean!
I was concerned at first as the lube seems very light. Chain makes no unusual noise. No Chatter, etc.
Highly recommend it!

I have a new 455 rancher chainsaw husky 20inch bar chain keeps coming off new chain


You may have a bent bar, or you could be putting the chain on a little too loose. Perhaps the chain is not getting lube ?
Possible that the chain tentssioner and or adjustment is loosening up as you are using the unit. Other than that maybe a defective new blade ?

How much chan lubricant should be used and what is the grade of the oil


You want to buy Bar grade oil, it is sticky and stays on the chain, it will properly lube the bar and chain with a full tank o gas. People have used, used motor oil but this wears down the chain and gears from the micro sized filings in the oil so use clean bar oil to lube the chain correctly. also if the chain sprocket has a small hole in the tip of the saw you will need to buy a gear lube pump to keep grease in the gear at the tip of the blade. This should be lube each time you fill the fuel tank and once half way threw the tank of fuel to make the bar last longer. The bar oil is a special grade of oil and requires bar oil for it to adhere to the bar and the bar guides. Hope this helps and thanks for using fix-ya.

How and what kind of oil do I use on the chain on my 2002 Honda Shadow ACE 750?


there is a spray chain lube lube that you can buy from any motorcycle supply store, oil just goes everywhere, the special chain lube sticks to the chain and works much better and last 10 times as long.

Chain


The answer depends on whether external chain lubrication is beneficial for a chain with internal grease sealed with o-rings and perhaps how often you clean your chain. One school-of-thought believes that no additional lubrication is needed. The other believes that the sprocket and chain surfaces that do not have permanent grease also need to be lubricated. The chain manufacturers tell us that also lubricating the chain and sprocket surfaces will extend the life of these components. But a chain lube will sling-off unless designed to stick to the chain so it needs to stay tacky. Consequently it will also attract grit and road debris that, in turn, will accelerate wear faster than if you just have a clean unlubricated chain. Chain lube will also reduce power losses due to friction and shed water that leads to rust (and wear). If you live in a wet climate, you should probably use chain lube to prevent rust. A chain newly-cleaned with WD-40 will have a coat of light oil that will effectively displace water and reduce surface corrosion of the links. It's a low viscosity oil so any excess will sling off easily, but will attract very little grit - much less that any chain lube - and it will have the same rolling friction as a number of chain lubes on the market. WD-40, used as a one-step cleaner and lubricant is sufficient. Because it is a light oil, some fling-off will occur, so any excess should be wiped-off. USED REGULARLY, it provides good corrosion protection, low (but not the lowest) rolling resistance, and attracts less road grit than waxy chain lubes. So your chain stays very clean. If you aren't inclined to clean and lube your chain regularly, or often ride in wet conditions that promote corrosion, there are chain lubes on the market that are designed to stick to your chain to resist fling-off and provide longer-lasting corrosion protection. Some remain tacky and attract grit, some stay slippery to the touch. All of them need to cleaned off and renewed at some point. If you’ve decided to use chain lube after cleaning your chain, then it’s best to use straight kerosene as your cleaner because the light oil that WD-40 contains will make it difficult for the chain lube to stay attached without flinging-off.,,,

Yes All motorcycle chains currently being manufactured use Buna-N (Nitrile) rubber for their o-rings and x-rings and all these manufacturers recommend kerosene as a cleaner. Here's the formulation of WD-40: 80% Stoddard Solvent (that is similar to kerosene) 20% light lubricating oil and a bit of fragrance. Here's the compatibility of Stoddard Solvent with rubbers and plastics: Good Compatibility (OK for both static and dynamic seals) Buna-N (Nitrile) Chemraz Epichlorohydrin Fluorocarbon Fluorosilicone Kalrez Nitrile, hydrogenated Polyacrylate Teflon, virgin Mixed Compatibility (OK for static seals, but not for dynamic seals) Neoprene Vamac Fair Compatibility (OK for some static seals) Polysulfide Polyurethane, millable Poor Compatibility Butyl Ethylene-Propylene Hypalon Natural rubber Silicone Styrene Butadiene Consequently, WD-40 is safe and effective as a chain cleaner and corrosion inhibitor. Link: http://www.efunda.com/designstandard...dard%20Solvent If you clean with a soft brush and WD-40, and plan to follow-up with a chain lube, you can reduce chain lube sling-off if you first remove the oil residue that WD-40 leaves. This residue seems to prevent some chain lube formulations from sticking well to the chain.,,,

Chain oiler


take off cover to the bar, remove chain and bar. spray degreaser or hot soapy water in and around the interior housing. look carefully and you should see a small hole that is where the chain lube comes from. typically all you need is a good cleaning in this area. hope this helps.
