Chainsaw chains stretch during normal operation and begin to sag on a saw`s guide bar. If a chainsaw chain is allowed to become too loose, it can easily come off the bar during operation and create an unsafe situation for the user. Chainsaw chain tension should be checked and tightened often.

A properly-tensioned chainsaw chain should still be just a little loose on the chainsaw guide bar, but the chain needs to be tight enough that you can`t pull the drive links out of the bar nose.
Generally speaking, the chain should be a little loose on the chain saw guide bar, but not loose enough that the drive links come out of the bar nose. The bar links should feel like they are raising up, but not actually come out of the guide bar.
Always cut on the compression side first! The area on the outside of the bend will pull apart when cut. This is the tension side. If you decide to cut this side only, the tree will split apart before the cut can be completed.
The rule of the thumb says that the exact tightness of a chain will only let you move for about half an inch. Now, if the chain is too loose, then you need to tighten it. If you cannot even move the chain, then it is too tight, and it needs to be loosened.
Chain wear is commonly referred to as `chain stretch`, because the chain`s pitch grows in length as it wears. This is the most important type of chain wear, and the growth comes from the bushings wearing with the chain pins. Over time, the inner diameter of these bushings increases and the pins groove out.
Loose chains also make pedaling less efficient and waste your energy. A loose chain will only get worse over time, though, so you`ll want to fix it to avoid further frustration.
With a ruler or tape measure, measure the distance between the bottom of the lower run and the ground as you push down on the chain with medium pressure. Then, take the same measurement while pushing up on the same spot of the chain. The difference between these two measurements is your chain slack.

The B-gap or B-tension screw is located at the very back of your derailleur. It pushes against a tab on your frame`s derailleur hanger, allowing you to adjust the distance between your rear derailleur`s top pulley and the cassette.
The T screw regulates how much fuel is sent to the carburettor while idling until the throttle is pressed. L Screw – With the chainsaw still running, take a screwdriver and turn the L screw clockwise. Keep turning it until the engine almost stops turning.

Oregon chain is made in several pitches – 1/4″ is the smallest, 3/8″ is the most popular, and 3/4” is the largest. Pitch is important because the drive sprocket must be the same pitch as the chain, and if applicable, the bar nose sprocket.

Chain keeps slipping off when in use. – Craftsman sears 18" Chain Saw Chain ( Model 35084 )
ANSWER : Make sure the chain has not been damaged from past slipping by removing it from the machine and laying the chain out in a large circle on a flat surface. No part of the chain should be standing free of the surface–replace the chain if it does. The chain should be adjusted so that the chain just comes up to the lower bar edge, but not so tight that the chain cannot be turned by hand. Make sure the teeth are quite sharp for maximum cutting effect and minimum heat. Check the chain lubrication by running the bar tip at speed for a moment or two near some cardboard–it should throw off a thin line of oil. Don’t continue to run the saw if the chain starts to droop from the bar. If it is quite hot, allow it to cool which should re-tighten the chain. Hope this helps!

My 18 Inch chain saw will not keep oiling the Chain, I had it worked on and He said it was plugged. How do you unplug it with out taking it all apart. Is there a spot to blow air through. the Preacher..
ANSWER : Remove the chain bar and look just below the bolts holding it in place. You’ll see a small hole where the chain bar oil pump pushes out oil. Make sure this hole is clear then run the saw without the bar on.

Be CAREFUL of fingers!

You should see oil coming out of that hole. If not, you may need more serious work done with the saw (chain bar pump replacement).
