Husky 385
« on: October 15, 2006, 10:43:01 PM »
On my husky 385, I can see sparks from the chain. My oiler works and the is no FOD in the log. Do I need to increase my oil output? Running a 36" bar.

Also I get slack in my chains. I have to stop, loosen nuts, tighten slack, then retighten nuts. What could this be?

I keep my oil output cranked up, oil is cheap, bars and chains are expensive.
Tighten your chain with the bar raised then tighten the nuts.
Check the owners manual for this.

I see sparks on my saws every once in a while, from the chain or bar.  Usually because of a burr on the rail. If your saw is good and hot, sawdust will hit the muffler and make sparks especially near dusk. I have set some logs to smoldering that were dry by having the muffler too close too long when cutting some big stuff.

Yes, I have an A&P license. FCC too. Haven't used them because a couple idiot's thought it would be cool to fly airplanes into buildings. { Please lord, forgive me for my anger!}
FOD = Foriegn Object/ debris. Little bits of metal from ground equipment (Tugs, Baggage carts), vehicles, Debris from suitcases like zippers and lock. When you wind up a jet engine, these things will get sucked up right off the ground. If you you chip a turbine fan blade, it will brake off.

BTW, my wife is in the medical field, There is an insurance code for death by being sucked into a jet engine. You never heard about it on the news. Few years back, a woman walked into a propeller at night. She was wearing hearing protection. She didn't hear turbine running. Safety first!!!
