You seem to have more fuel coming into your carburetor then you need. This may be a simple adjustment of your H high and L low adjustment screws. I will be happy to help you more if you need. Good Luck Friend.

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: Chainsaw chain won't move on 16" Homelite bar

Sounds like th clutch brake is engaged. Try Pushing firmly foward on the hand guard in front of the handle. It should click to release the clutch brake.
Let me know if this helps.

SOURCE: printer is bi-polar!

Once you change the drum unit on these machines you must reset the printer. Turn on the machine, open the front cover where the toner is located, press the "option" button on the keyboard. You should see a message on the display that gives you an option to press 1 or 2. Press 1 to change drum. Close the cover and you should be reset.

SOURCE: I can start up the chainsaw, but chain doesn't spin

Is the chain brake on? Pull the lever your knuckles are against toward you to unlock the anti-kickback brake.

SOURCE: my ryobi chainsaw rcs 2040 keeps stopping but

RYOBI----- with the motor running at high revs the chain stops indicates that the sprocket behind the centrifugal clutch is worn out or the centrifugal clutch itself ,or the clutch shoes are worn out the way to tell is to remove the bar and chain and have alook where the chain was conected to the saw, i think you will see the sprocket is buggered and as that is attatched to the clutch drum that will have to be replaced along with clutch springs and shoes, i think you have been running the chain a bit too loose or not running it at realy high revs ,which is what they are designed to do ,cme back to me if you feel the need

How do i fix the rear sprocket on my huffy rock it bicycle

on all single speed bikes, it has been my experience, that chain tension is the reason for the chain to come off, try tightening it again, since this seems to keep happening the chain may be stretched out now and replacing the chain and getting it tight should solve the issue.

Go to page 26. Remember to pull front of chain bar up before you tighten nuts. Make sure you really tighten nuts so they do not allow bar to move when finished.

My husqvarna 435 clutch cover came off while cutting, chain wont spin freely when re assembled

That should be all that was there. If it's a fairly new saw, it could just fit tight. Not that I recommend this, but leave the nuts 1/2 loose. I had to get my chain moving using a pair of welding gloves and pulling it around the bar. The whole thing seated properly & I finished tightening it up. the brake fits tight but you don't want to lubricate it or it won't function properly when you need it. Also be sure the brake ISN'T engaged when you reassemble and when you're finished. Hope this helps.

Hi I have a Santa Fe 2.0 litre diesel on a 2002 reg I went to work the car drove and started great when I finished work after 12 hours the car would not start it turns over fast but not fire up can anyone...

check your timing chain, if the engine spins fast, it might not have compression, and valve timing is important for that timing chain controls valve timing

Chain keeps going tight on my johnson red saw why

I think you should make sure that when you tighten the 2 nuts that hold the bar, that you raise up on the bar while you tighten nuts. That way the bar cant move up and tighten the chain.

Chainsaw Chain Keeps Coming Loose I bought a brand new husky saw 235 and the chain keeps coming loose its about an inch under the bar after bucks up 3-5 logs in a row, the oiler is working but im not sure...

No problem.Is because the chain get streched.So open the side of the chain saw where there is the adjust bolt.The chain plate holder has a groove long enough to adjust the chain.But do not do it too tight.When adjusting try to test it without power,just by move the chain with hands.

If you need more help come back.Post / thumbs / testimonial are welcome!

Sometimes when shifting from middle ring to small ring the chain gets stuck between the two rings.

Going down, shift fast and keep that chain moving, If the derailleur isn't throwing far enough, fast enough, get some oil in there and move the adj screw a hair in, so that the chain will move over a hair and not fall off the other side. I was just out on my bike and couldn't believe how nice it stills shifts after 25 years. Original parts. Hope this helps.

When idling chain keeps turning

if this is happening, then your chainsaw is just idling to fast, you need to turn down the idle speed a little. on the carby, there are 3 screws, 2 small (H), (L), and a larger screw is the idle speed one, turn anti - clockwise to reduce idle speed.
Hope this helps.

Loose chain

Loosen the axle nut and the lock nuts for the chain adjusters on each side of the swingarm. Turn the adjuster to move the rear wheel to the rear to tighten the chain.

You want to adjust the chain so that you have 1 inch up and down play in the chain. By this I mean 1/2" above center and 1/2" below center of the chain as it sits on the bike, 1" up and down inclusive. Adjustment should be made at the point where the chain is the tightest. Roll the rear wheel while checking the chain tension. Find the tightest point to make your adjustment.

Move both chain adjusters the same amount to keep wheel straight within the swingarm. Once adjusted, roll the wheel a couple of turns and check the adjustment of the chain again. Once finished, tighten adjuster lock nuts and retorque the axle nut to 50 foot pounds of torque.

Good Luck, Steve
