Start by removing the cover securing nut, remove the side cover,wind the chain adjuster screw at the front of the saw anti clockwise, until the old chain becomes lose, pull the guide bar out and off the adjuster pawl, should now be able to remove the old chain, loop the new chain over the sprocket, and into the guide bar rails, make sure the cutting edge of the chain on the top of the bar is facing away from the saw ( the chain rotates clockwise as you look at it )make sure the bar is still located on the adjuster pawl, re fit the side cover, re fit the securing nut finger tight, now turn the adjuster screw with a flat blade screw driver, until the chain sits snugley in the bar rails, there should be no sagging on the bottom of the bar, now lift the tip of the bar and fully tighten the securing nut, run the saw for a couple of minutes, now re check the tention. The correct tention is so you can lift clear two of the drive teeth out from the top of the bar.

The chain has come off. I put it back but it is too loose. How do I tighten it


Should be a screw next to the bar. you can tighten it and it will tighten the chain. Keep in mind that the 2 bolts holding the bar and cover in place have to be loose to do this.

How do I put the chain back on a chainsaw?


you need to loosen the nut on the side of the chainsaw and then take the cover off. Remove the bar and take the chain off. Then put the chain back on the bar being careful about the direction of the chain. Place the chain back over the sprocket and lower the bar back onto the plate making sure the hole lines up with the adjusting mechanism on the cover. After you line up them up put the nuts back on and loosely tighten them. Adjust the chain where it is almost tight and then tighten up the nuts.

I have a Poulan 295. I needed to replace the chain. It is a 20" chain. There is bar oil in the resevoir. The chain will not stay on the bar (it seems loose even when fully tightened). I replaced...


If you replaced the bar AND the chain, you'll need to make sure the chain is the correct chain for the particular bar you've used. If you're only replacing the chain, you need to make sure the chain has the same # of drive links as your old chain (maybe one or two more, if you've had some removed because of chain stretch).

On that particular model, for a 20" chain, you could have a 78 OR 80 drive link chain (drive links being the part of the chain that rides in the groove of the bar). The correct drive link count is determined by the bar you've installed and should have been made clear by whoever you purchased the bar from. Some brands use an 80 drive link chain, but MOST use the 78 drive link chain.

If the bar you purchased uses the 78 drive link chain, but you have an 80 drive link chain, then no matter how far out you adjust the bar, you may not get the chain tight enough. PartsBuggy shows a listing of which bars use the 78 drive link chains here.

How do I tighten chain on Model Poulan 2050. Can't seem to get tight enough.


Hold the nose up!
c581361.gif Chain Adjustment
  1. Make sure the chain brake is off (gloves will protest your fingers).
  2. If necessary, loosen the bar nuts that are clamping the clutch cover in place (or whatever holds the clutch cover and bar on). They don't need these really loose - finger tight will do.
  3. Ease the tension adjustment until the chain is obviously loose.
  4. Using one hand, hold the nose of the bar up.
  5. While holding the nose up, adjust the tensioner so that the center of the chain just touches the underside of the bar, add a touch more.
  6. Continue holding the nose of the bar up & tighten up the bar nuts / bolts / quick-release system. HTH

POULAN CHAIN SAW MODEL 1420 ''Chain came off track


Chain is probably stretched. SAFETY FIRST. Electric saw, make sure power is unplugged. Gas saw, make sure sparkplug wire is removed. Remove the cover where the bar is attached to the saw. U should see an adjustment screw for chain tension and one or more bar lockdown screws. Loosen the lockdown screws and turn the tension adjustment screw to permit the bar to slide back toward the motor. Put the chain back in the bar track all the way around. Adjust the tension screw to tighten chain enough you can't pull it out of the track at any spot. Slide the chain by hand at least one complete revolution feeling for any rough spots. If it moves freely, turn the tension screw enough to tighten the chain properly. Correct tension should allow you to pull the chain appx. 1/16 to 1/8 inch from the bar. Tighten the lockdown screws, replace the cover. Rotate chain by hand a couple of revolutions again to check for smoothness again before starting the saw.
