Chains are denoted by three things, the pitch of the chain ( 3/8,.325,404) the gauge ( 050,058,063 etc ) and the inner drive link count, this will give the lenght of the chain, this information can usually be found stamped into the guide bar.

Florabest fks 2200 b1.advise which kind of oil required


The oil is for the lubrication of the chain. You can purchase chainsaw chain oil in a hardware store, Home Depot, Lowes, etc. 30 weight engine oil can be used, but the chain oil has special additives for the oil to adhere to the chain, so I would recommend using the chain oil. It can be purchase in one gallon size.

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.

I have been advsed that I have a broken timing belt or "jumped timing chain.Besides the belt/chain, what other components do you recommend replacing(Gasket/seal,cam and crank pulleys,tensioners)?


I am assuming you have the 2.2L 4 cylinder engine. The timing chain tensioner on these engines is nororious for failure resulting in jumped timing. Be advised that depending upon the situation, you may have sustained major engine damage. If the timing simply jumped when turning the engine off, you may be safe, but if it occurred at highway speed, there is a high probability that there is valve damage in the engine that will need repair before you can move on to the timing chain and tensioner. As far as "other components", if your know that the head is ok, then you should replace the timing gears, chain, and tensioner. Also purchase a "timing gasket set" which will give you the gaskets ans seals you need to do the job.

How do you know when chain needs to be replaced?


On the top of the chain cutting tooth (not a connection link) there will be a small engraved line on a slight angle across the top. If the chain has been worn or filed down to this mark, then the chain needs replacing. There are many other factors that deem a saw chain needing replacement...etc. If there are missing/cracked/chipped teeth, twisted or bent links are to name a few. Considering the low cost of a chain, it is much safer to simply replace a chain that its integrity may be in question. They can be found at most any hardware or home improvement store. Make sure to purchase the correct size chain for your saw and for the style of cutting you will be doing.

I need to replace the pull chain that controls the blade speed for my Hampton Bay ceiling fan. I do not know the model number, but it is a 52" five-blade fan.


If the chain is broken off at the switch, you will need to replace the entire switch. It is not difficult to do and you can purchase a new switch from either Lowe's or Home Depot. You''ll find the switch in the ceiling fan department.

All you need to do, to remove the switch is remove the bottom cover of the fan housing, where the switch is located (if you have a light kit, you will need to remove it). This will give you access to the wiring and the switch. The switch is held in place by a threaded retainer ring on the outside of the fan housing. Unscrew it and push the switch back into the housing, Disconnect the wire nuts and totally remove the switch. Take it with you, when you go to purchase a new one.

If the chain is still visible by at least 1" all you need to do is purchase a new chain (usually comes with connector) and connect the two together.

As always, be sure the electricity is turned off to the fan, before attempting any repairs.

Hope this helps solve your problem.

Replacement chain and bar size


To purchase a new chain you need to know a few things, the pitch of the chain on your saw, .325/.375/.404, then you need to know the gauge of the chain 050/058/063 and finally the drive link count, this is the inner drive teeth, this will automatically give you the lenght, for example .325/050/64 drive links is a standard 15" chain for a Husqvarna semi pro saw.
This information should be etched into the guide bar, if not your local dealer should be able to tell you if you show him the chain
