somehow the full model number did not appear. It is 358.350840 S/N S40152. Your suggested manual does not match my hardware. Perhaps this will clarifiy. Thanks, George

I'm afraid we no longer have a copy of this manual available either.

To tighten the chain you need to loosen (not remove) the 2 screws on the side of the bar (right side of machine). Then look on the front of the saw, right up next to the bar, and you will see a slot head screw. Turn that to the right to tighten the chain. Once the chain is tight then tighten back up the 2 screws on the right side that you earlier loosened.

To loosen the chain you will just turn the slot head screw to the left to take some tension off and then tighten the screws on the side back up.

Thank you for using Manage My Life!

Hi. thanks. My saw does not have any screws on the side of the bar. there is nothing in the upper hole in the bar and the pin that positions the bar comes thru the lower hole. I guess the only thing that holds the bar in position once the chain is adjusted is the clamping of the yellow outer cover held by one nut on a stud. Maybe this wasn't tight enough so the chain kept getting too tight and jamming. It's an oldie! (like me). George

that's odd that I'm being shown a drawing of the wrong machine. If you want, double check the model number and see if you maybe left a number out or something.

Wade - Model number rechecked and is OK. See pix with cover on and off. No clamping screws directly onto the bar - only the one stud for the yellow cover. There are (2) roll pins horizontally to guide the bar as it moves left to right.. top hole is empty - blank behind it, no sheared off screw. The lower hole has the pin which moves the bar with the flat head screw. Hope you can enlarge the photos. Thanks, George

My dad had a saw real similar to that for years when I was growing up. Now makes me wonder what he did with it. Okay, the nut that holds the cover on. With the cover on, like in your 2nd pic, loosen the nut. Then on the other side of the bar there should be a little slot head screw facing forward. Turn that screw right to tighten the chain and left to loosen it. When you get the chain about where you want it, tighten the nut back up on the cover.
