Tightening chain on limb n trim 1415

Trying to tighten the chain, I had to remove the guide bar. The manual says (twice) "Make sure adjust- ing block is in oval adjusting hole on guide bar." (## 5 & 7 on p 6). However, this is impossible. The block is a round nut, which doesn't extend beyond the adjusting plate housing, and the guide bar therefore cannot come into contact with it. How do I handle this.

George:
The adjusting block is a round nut... it used to have a pawl sticking out from it, but the pawl has been broken off. The pawl sticks through the adjustment plate and into the bar so that when you turn the adjustment screw clockwise, it will pull the bar out to tighten the chain. I had the same problem when I loaned my saw and the chain came into contact with a chain link fence breaking the pawl off of the adjustment nut. Go online and order a new adjustment nut... they shouldn't cost more that a few bucks.

Testimonial: "That's useful, thanks. But it still seems it takes about 5 times as long to re-tighten the chain, as it does for the chain to work loose. I have literally never (it's newly bought) used it for more than a minute, before it got loose. Any suggestions?"

The honest answer to will any 14" chain fit is no! It is "YES" if it has 50 drive links, a 3/8 pitch, and a gauge of 0.050 will; provided you are using the original bar or a suitable substitute. Manufacturers almost never tell you these numbers. They want you to purchase replacements from them. Any merchant, that sells chain, given (50, 3/8, 0.050) this information can fabricate a replacement chain and unless you tell them differently it will most likely be a green chain. A local merchant will save shipping and handling fees. I enjoyed this exercise in painting with text. I hope you have a better understanding of your question. Thank You.

If you go here:
Oregon Bar & Chain Selector
http://www.oregonchain.com/pro/lookups/selguide.aspx?BusId=OCS&SellReg=USA&LangId=ENG
Input "Remington; LNT-2; 14"; All; All; All"
It tells you there are 50 drive links (the important part of length, ±1 drive link may still be 14” but will not fit); it has a pitch of 3/8 (there are other pitches available); it has a gauge of 0.050 (0.043 & 0.058 also common). If you read the Triangular information tags you will see different chains have more or less chance of kickback. I will not purchase anything with a green tag but have been using chainsaws since 1980 and wear full PPE. I hope this clarifies this part of your question.

Tightening chain


Tightening chain is performed by adjusting the bar. Two bolts generally hold the bar in place. Loosen these. Make sure that chain has enough play to easily move by hand. If it sticks, it's too tight. Then tighten the bar, check the chain oil, and cut wood.

The blade on my McCulloch Electramac EM250-14 came off. How do I put it back on? Dan Enright


I am not familier with this machine, hoever the principle is the same for most machines, start by removeing the bar nut/nuts, remove the side cover, wind the chain adjuster screw fully back it may be in the saw or in the side cover, push the guide bar fully back, now loop the chain over the sprocket and lay it into the top of the guide bar, and around the tip, the cutting edge of the chain in the top of the guide bar should be facing away from the saw ( the chain rotates clockwise as you look at it ) replace the side cover, make sure the adjuster pawl is in the hole in the guide bar, assemble the nut/nuts finger tight, now adjust the bar so as the chain is touching all the way around the guide bar, with a gloved hand pull the chain around the bar manually to make sure it is properly on the sprocket, re tention the chain if required, lift the tip of the bar and fully tighten the bar nut/nuts, the chain should not sag on the bottom of the guide bar.

How do i put a chain back on a chainsaw?


Locate the bolts on the bar, down close to the engine. Loosen them. locate the chain tensioning adjustment, again, close to the engine, but on the other side. Loosen it also. Place your chain on the bar and on the sprocket. Tighten the bolts enough to take the slack out of the bar, but not so much that you cannot use the adjustment tensioning screw. Tighten up on the tension adjustment until the tension on the chain is right, and then tighten the bolts.

Trying to put chain and saw together


If the saw has a chainbrake make sure it is de activated by pulling the hand guard fully to the top handle, you should hear an audible clip when it locks, remove the the bar nut/nuts and remove the side cover, if the chain adjuster is in the cover screw it right back, if the adjuster is in the crankcase screw it right back, place the guide bar onto the bar bolts, loop the chain over the sprocket and lay it around the guide bar with the cutters on the top of the bar facing away from the saw, if the adjuster pawl is in the crankcase locate it into the adjuster hole in the guide bar, now re fit the side cover, if the adjuster pawl is in the cover make sure it locates into the adjuster hole in the guide bar, re fit the bar nut/nuts finger tight, screw the adjuster up until the chain sits snuggley around the whole guide bar, pull the chain around the bar manually with a gloved hand, this will make sure it turns freely and is correctly located in the sprocket, hold the end of the guide bar up and tighten the nut/nuts

The chain on my Remington electric saw keeps jumping the sprocket. Solution? Thanks.


Depending to what model you have, the Sprocket cover tab (located on the round part of the sprocket cover) isn’t inserted into the saw body tab slot. Or your cahin is not tensioned properly. According to the manufacturer... "The adjusting block on the adjusting screw isn’t inserted into the adjusting hole on the guide bar. Reinstall and align the sprocket cover by first removing the sprocket cover from the saw. Turn tensioning screw on the sprocket cover counter-clockwise until it stops. Pull guide bar away from saw body to remove slack from chain. Insert sprocket cover tab into saw body tab slot and lower sprocket cover into guide bar bolt. Finger tighten guide bar nut onto guide bar bolt. Slowly push guide bar toward saw body until adjusting block on the adjusting screw drops into round adjusting hole on the guide bar. Securely tighten guide bar nut after properly tensioning saw chain." If these tips do not work, you may need a new chain. You can order an new chain on-line at www.masterparts.net. I hope this helps you!
