That machine should have a bar adjusting screw located just behind the bar. There is a small adjusting pin that sticks out of the saw case right behind the bar mount, you need to be sure that this pin sticks through the hole in the bar when installing the bar otherwise the adjuster will not work. Once you everything installed properly you can use the screw just behind the bar in the front of the saw to adjust the tension on the chain. Thanks
