That's what I was thinking. I see the cover. But it didn't show the other side. So I had no clue if the tensioner was in there or not.Are you sure it is a homelite part since MTD purchased Remington a few years ago and they make a RM4620 Don't offer parts for the chain cover just the entire assembly for like $17.
Don't feel bad the new Craftsman saws are also made by MTD,Oh well I give up....it is still a Chinese unit.
The company’s chainsaws were most recently manufactured in China and imported by a Tempe, Arizona company. In 2016, the company’s chainsaws were manufactured by Zhejiang Pioneer Machinery & Electron Company of China. Then, they were imported by MTD Southwest, which is based out of Tempe, Arizona.
I scrapped all my parts equipment before the move. Not a week after the move, I started needing what I scrapped. probably 10 to 15 saws went to the scrap yard.When faced with a broken chain adjuster, I simply fit a standard front facing adjuster.
Of course I have a grab box of 50 or so to choose from but in reality only regularly use 2 Husqvarna one and a Stihl one.
Some times you need a dab of glue to hold the nut in place.
I am yet to see a side adjuster that is worth the effort of fixing and $ 5.00 for an adjuster kit is a lot cheaper than and entire brake mechanism.
I would guess that some smart ass legal eagle won a massive pay out for this brain dead client who cut his little pinkie on the bumper spikes because he was using a stumpy screwdriver to adjust the chain & not the supplied tool.
They are all powder pressings and as such weak as water
