Question about Garden
You obviously have taken the chain and bar off the saw. Start by meticulaously cleaning the oil port/s. At the front of the bar on the engine side, you should find a screw that moves the blade back and forth. Turn this screw counter-clockwise to allow placing chain loop on the bar and drive gear. Make sure that the sharp portion of the tooth of the chain is facing toward the engine of the saw, then the cogs will fit correctly. At the back end of the screw that you turned, is a nib that fits into the blade of the saw. Once you start assembling it,you can tighten the screw. Tighten the two bolts holding the blade and chain just enough so that you can still adjust the screw. Now, tighten that screw to a point where the chain can still be moved freely, but does not have a droop on the under side of the blade. Tighten,run the saw a bit, readjust if necassary and you are ready to go.

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.
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.
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.
Finish tightening the side plate nuts.
The chainsaw chain replacement is now complete.

You need to make sure the blade is not damaged. You need
to release the chain tension screw, most cases; you turn in counter clock wise
to release the tension rod. Do it in the reverse when you reinstall chain to
tighten it back up to operating conditions.
