    Maybe I missed it but did you verify the oiler is working?

    Also possible the bar is wore out. Do the drive links fit without much slop?

    Also, are you sure the drivelinks are seated on the sprocket before you tighten the nuts. If they aren't, it will seem tight but when you start the saw and rap the throttle, and then they seat...it would make the chain break loose

    The oiler is working fine. It's a new bar and the chain seats good on the bar sprocket. Not sure about the chain seating on the motor sprocket. I will look into that. I will also still try to get those pics of the sprocket on here

    If that saw has a rim sprocket, you are supposed to change it with every chain. They're only about $6-$8. Although I usually go a couple of chains before I swap.

    I didn't have a chance to get pics of it. But looked real close at the sprocket and it definitely looks worn. I priced them online and just like you said. about 8 bucks. Thanks for the help

    I remember as a youngster using my Dad's homelite he told me to rest the tip of the bar on something when tightening to make sure the tip of the bar was all the way up. He told me if i let the bar support it's weight, that the tip will drop some and while sawing, it will try to move upward and cause the chain to tighten. So following my usual method of finding things out for myself, I to proceeded to just let the tip hang, tighten things up and went to work, wrecke the chain, sprocket and bar. He wasn't too happy with me and it took a lot of mowed lawns and fence building to pay for the damage. Fortunately, even though im not too smart, it only takes me one time....usually.
