« on: March 28, 2018, 05:46:15 am »

I am scratching my head with this saw! the "mechanic" that had it for 3 weeks to service it.... well il keep
the profanity out of this post  >:(

so as it stands when i start the saw it seems the bar drops and the chain tightens then the engine stalls  :'(

i cant see a serial number anywhere on the saw. just dont want to run it to much as im afraid of doing damage to engine

any help/advise would be greatly appreciated

I think the guy didn't know what he was doing and mounted the bar wrong. Remove the chain cover,make sure the chain adjuster pin is in it's hole in the bar,get it sitting properly on the studs,put the cover on not too tight adjust the tensioner screw while holding the tip of the bar UP,then while still holding it tighten the cover bolts well. Chain should be snug but still turn without too much difficulty. Good cutting! Also check the oil hole in the bar is clear when you have it off.
