Great chainsaw, I buy all echo products. Your dealer replaced the rim sprocket which is good but did he check the drum and needle bearing. If your had some serious hours of use, it may have had a worn bearing and drum which would allow the sprocket to be noisy. Easy to check. Remove the side cover and bar/chain to expose the sprocket. Spin by hand and use your good judgement as far as the condition of the bearing and drum shell. It should spin smoothly and quietly without any wobble. Now check bar and chain. Hold bar with the nose up and place the chain on the bar. Use gloves because chain is very sharp. Hold bar at slight angle so the chain will remain on top side and pull the chain in the direction of of travel. It should travel around the bar smoothly with out much effort and not hang-up. Finally, place the bar and chain back on the engine unit and place chain around sprocket. Hold bar in place by hand and see if sprocket aligns with chain, the sprocket should float on drum slightly to help align. If it aligns will enough, pull chain in the direction of travel, it should pull smoothly. Lastly, reinstall side cover and adjust chain so that the chain sags below the bar about 1/8 inch. Pull chain in direction of travel, it should move smoothly. Now adjust tension to chain to just remove slack, however still pull thru smoothly. If chain hangs or sounds noisy at the sprocket, return saw to dealer and have them replace clutch, bearing and another new sprocket. Try to be there when they remove the drum so that you can take a look at the surface of the shaft where the needle bearing makes contact. It should be very smooth. Good Luck

    Yes I believe that your dealer should remove the clutch completely and examine roller bearing and the surface /shaft it rides on and of course try to align the bar to the sprocket. For now I believe that you could run the saw with just minimal tension on the chain and adjust often. It is ok to run the saw with chain sagging just slightly off the bottom. Too tight will cause wear on all parts and tend to streach the chain. Glad the information was useful.

Replace sprocket on rancher 460


The factory do not offer a rim sprocket for the 455/460, they are classed as semi pro saws and as such get a spur sprocket, there may be an Oregon after market one available.

Sears craftsman 3.3 cubic inch motor, model # 358356331 chainsaw, what is correct bar length and what is the chain modle and size


According to www.searspartsdirect.com , this saw came with a 20" bar and a .325" pitch, .050" guage, 78 drive links chain.
On sears' website, plug in your model number, go to the handle section and your bar and chain are #130 and #131.
These items are also available aftermarket.
Oregon calls this a #33 or #20 chain, with 78 drive links.
Oregon offers a bar/chain combo part #106874

It is a good idea to inspect the drive teeth on the sprocket of the saw. If they are worn, this is the perfect time to replace the sprocket.

Good luck!

What part number oregon chain do i need for a cs-52 john deere saw. They keep sending me the wrong john deere chain witch is three links short. thanks Vern.


Hello Sam;
I cannot find anything by Deere (probably an efco 152) about your saw. Oregon does list some particulars here:
Oregon Bar & Chain Selector
http://www.oregonchain.com/pro/lookups/selguide.aspx?BusId=OCS&SellReg=USA&LangId=ENG
I input:
John Deere; CS52; *see below; All (0.325"); All (0.050"); All (yours is likely green - low kickback).
*16" - 66 drive links (the part that fits in the bar).
*18" - 72 drive links.

If your saw does not use either 66 or 72 drive links I suspect the bar, drive sprocket, or drive sprocket and bar nose in use are not what the the saw was originally supplied with. Any local chainsaw seller/mechanic given your chain as a pattern can fabricate one in about 5 minutes. Often a local chain is less expensive (no shipping).

If you have more questions or need additional help please reply below and I will get back to you. HTH & Good Luck.

Does this saw have a tip sprocket?


I cannot give you a definite answer without seeing the bar. I suspect that when shipped by Husqvarna it had a 0.325 pitch, sprocket nose bar. There are no guarantees it had that configuration when sold. The OM (link below) references a bar nose sprocket. If the bar was replaced it may be a solid nose bar. The IPL does not display any bars.

Sprocket won't turn with bar and chain in place. Turns freely with bar off.


It's possible that you have the anti-kick brake on or you have the chain adjusted too tight. The guard in front of the top handle should be all the way back to release the brahe. Hope this helps you

Husky 460 chains too long (or is the bar too short)


Hello, your bar may not be seating on the adjusting pin properly.Like you I have cut thousands of cords used every saw made and the only time something like this happens is when the adjuster isn't seating properly. Give me your model number and I'll try and round up a manual for you.

Husquvarna 353 saw bar problems


you do not need to switch the rim sprocket,.325 will be the same with .050 or .058.all you have to change is the bar to the .058..the .050 chain will no longer if the saw so you will have to replace it also.
