I need to know the Proper Way this New Chain goes on to a 7 Speed Bike, I cannot work out how it routes around all these Cogs & Gears.

I suggest you google for fitting a new bike chain and you will find loads of instructions and videos though having another bike to copy might be the best way to success.

It is not the chain routing you will find difficult I speculate, but finding the right length of chain to fit. The chain you have bought will probably need a few links removing and then once fitted the ends will need rivetting together securely.
You will find that a simple matter when you have seen it done. Adjusting a chain length by adding or removing links is difficult without a chain link extractor tool. Such a tool is inexpensive and an essential addition to the tool box of anyone concerned with chain driven vehicles or equipment.

Thicker chains have the benefit of being able to fit split links and half links but even if they are available they should not be used with a derailleur gear.
Good luck!

It sounds like you are dealing with a stretched chain. If the chain will not tension any further, you may be looking at the need to purchase a new chain. Use your model and serial number at the following link to order a new chain.

No problem at all. Just need to make sure the two studs attaching the bar to the motor head fit correctly. Of course, the former chain is now too long. Either have a saw shop make you a 'loop' to fit, usually $1/inch of bar=$16 for your new setup, or try a prepackaged chain labelled for the 16 inch bar. I recommend the former, because then you get an expert to look over your new setup for you. Shop chains are usually better quality, always fit correctly, and cost no more, often less, than department store chains

Husqvarna 455 rancher, chain getting too loose to tighten after one days use age. Bar oil topped off with every fill up of gas. Bar cleaned in the groove, etc. New chain. The bar will no longer adjust to...

indicates incorrect length chain in use
the adjustment slots should be about 1/3 when fitted moving close to 1/2 when adjusted
the correct adjustment is when the chain in the center of the bar is lifted up the bottom segments of the chain are still in the bar groove
make sure that the oiler hole is not blocked from saw dust and chips

Installation of new chain on 16 " chain

Make sure the chainbrake ( if if fitted ) is off by pulling the hand guard fully back to the top handle, remove the securing nuts and remove the side cover, wind the chain adjuster back if it is in the crankcase, pull the bar fully back, now loop the loose chain off the tip of the bar and over the sprocket, re fit the new chain over the sprocket, and lay it around the guide bar, place the bar adjuster hole onto the adjuster pawl ( if it is in the crankcase ) refit the side cover, if the adjuster pawl is in the side cover make sure it fits into the hole in the bar, put the securing nuts back on finger tight, adjust the chain so as it fits snuggley around the bar, with a gloved hand pull the chain around the bar to make sure it is seated correctly, re adjust if required, lift the bar nose up and fully tighten the securing nuts, after the first ten minutes of use re check the chain tention as there will be an initial stretch.

Need to put a new chain on a Husqvara 235 14 inch chain saw?

Check that the chain brake is in disengaged position by
moving the front hand guard towards the front handle.
Remove the bar nuts and remove the clutch cover (chain
brake). Take off the transportation ring.
Fit the bar over the bar bolts. Place the bar in its rearmost
position. Place the chain over the drive sprocket locate it in
the groove on the bar. Begin on the top edge of the bar.

Make sure that the edges of the cutting links are facing
forward on the top edge of the bar.
Fit the clutch cover (chain brake) and locate the chain
adjuster pin in the cut-out in the bar. Check that the drive
links of the chain fit correctly on the drive sprocket and that
the chain is in the groove on the bar. Tighten the bar nuts
Tension the chain by turning the chain tensioning screw
clockwise using the combination spanner. The chain
should be tensioned until it does not sag from the
underside of the bar.
The chain is correctly tensioned when it does not sag from
the underside of the bar, but can still be turned easily by
hand. Hold up the bar tip and tighten the bar nuts with the
combination spanner.
When fitting a new chain, the chain tension has to be
checked frequently until the chain is run-in. Check the
chain tension regularly. A correctly tensioned chain
ensures good cutting performance and long life.

Chain specification Regina 136ORP

i wouldnt even bother with measurements,if you still have the chain on the bike,hold the chain with both hands about5 inches apart,twist your wrists left and right,if the chain links move more than about 1/8 inch over this distance..throw the chain away it is to worn to use,and has probably worn the teeth on the front and rear sprockets as well,most manufacturers recommend replacing both sprockets when fitting a new chain,as fitting a new chain on worn sprockets will accelerate chain wear
