SOURCE: Poulan Wood Shark Chainsaw - wood smoking. Is chain on backwards?

I cannot tell you about a picture, but for one: chain direction, the bottom of the bar is where the cutting takes place, and therefore, looking at the chain, you will see, on the bottom, the antikick back link is sort of curved, and then the next part is the straight tooth. The highest part of this straight tooth is the sharp edge, and this high part should face towards the motor. The chain, on the bottom side of the bar, is pulled in towards the motor by the clutch/gear. That is your direction of travel.

As to cleaning the air filter, Hopefully you have access to compressed air, as in simply blowing off the dirt. You do not want to use liquid cleaner. Simply blow off any dirt, after pulling the filter away from the carburetor, of course. Then place it back in place.

It may be that your chain is real dull. The top edge of the high part of the flat tooth needs to be sharp. And the outside corner needs to come to a nice point. Remember, there is two cutting surfaces on each tooth, the top is cutting down into the wood, and also that outside sharp corner is openning the cut for the bar to pass through. Proper sharpening, if new to it, can be hard to grasp. Any chainsaw manual should show how to do a good job.

SOURCE: Pull cord on chain saw will not retract.

Most of the rancher models are easy to look at. Take the four screws off that hold the starter cover on.When off have a look to see if the pulley is ok or one of the starter dogs(pawls) is jamed . If dogs ok take the screw out of the centre of pulley and remove it ,check for spring tension. if there is just be carful to leave sring in housing. look at spring if broken or out of shape renew it and rope.check for cracks in pulley. When renewing spring and rope get correct rope length and diameter. don't over tension new spring. hop this helps

SOURCE: mccullough chain saw pm610 chain slips -- maybe clutch issue

I just had this problem. It is possible that your chain drive teeth have jumped off the drive sprocket. There is a guide for the chain to follow and is decievingly difficult to verify that the teeth are in the drive sprocket. Turn the saw upside down, and look at the clutch. Check the chain to see if the chain is actually on the sprocket and not beside it. It looks right, but it's not.

Hi

First remove the cover,air filter and the carburator.Then remove the gas tank cap and the fuel filter from inside of gas tank,at the end of fuel line.Take off the fuel line from the hole of the gas tank(at the top),replace the fuel line,put all back together and start the engine.

Where is the decompression valve for stihl chain saw 026?


If it has one, it will be directly in front of the spark plug. Most 026 saws did not have one, however, an 026 Pro did.

How to adjust chain bar oiler


The Stihl 026 PRO does have an adjustable oiler and it is located on the bottom of the saw just below the clutch drum.
Stihl also builds an 026 "Standard" without the adjustable oiler, however, the hole location for adjustment is still there.

The 026 PRO will also have a decompression valve on top of the saw to make the rope easier to pull during startup. If you have the DECO valve you should also have the adjustable oiler. Hope this helps.

Stihl saw 026 runs 5-10 min won't stay running and backfires


5 to 10 minutes is a long time and the 026 is a fairly old saw. If it is running 5 to 10 minutes and not 5 to 10 seconds, you probably just have a worn engine. Clean the saw inside very thououghlr and try Amoco white gas. You should be able to reduct the heating and get more run time. A carb rebuild might also help some but in hot weather it is not unusual for chain saws to vapor lock.
