Need help with 66 triumph 650 bonneville

Having problem with oil being pumped out of automatic chain oiler tube . i have drained all fluids and i don't know how much or what kind of oil it needs . all my technical manuals were stolen and i haven't worked on it for 3 years .is there a bypass (checkball and spring) on the oil pump that feeds the chain oiler or did it simply have to much oil in the crankcase ? any help would be great,thanks

After these bikes have set for a period of time the oil in the oil tank drains to the lower end of the engine and when started after sitting the oil is usually forced out of the vents for crankcase; which on many of these bikes is through the primary and possibly to the chain oiler etc. Usually after running for a few minutes the oil is back in the oil tank and over supply to the oiler stops! Could possibly soak the clutch plates if it filled primary case also. Be sure and check oil level in tank?! If you added oil before starting it will now be overfilled after starting. This is common problem and will mend it self usually. Does make a mess in the garage toooooooo! Jesse "Leroy" Graves

Leroy is correct these machines are prone to a condition known as wet sumping after standing for extended periods however the same condition can result from the balls in the oil pump sticking this can occure if the interval between oil changes is to great or if contamination of the oil by dirt or water has happened.as for oil being pumped out of the chain oiler if you remove the oil tank cap you will find the chain oiler suply lin with a screw in it flow of oil to chain can be adjusted by turning this screw clockwise to decrese flow & counter clockwise to decrease hope this is of some help to you

The automatic chain oiler does not get oil to the chain. Yes, it has chain oil. The black tube to the top chamber at the bar, seems to be plugged and I cant get it off to clean it out. Thanks, Steve


I have never seen an automatic chain oiler that worked. Even new ones don't seem to work. Just pour a little used engine oil on the bar once in awhile like everyone else does.
In theory there is a small piston that rubs on an eccentric at the chain sprocket, and that sucks in oil and pushes it through a hole, into the center groove of the bar.
But if the piston is dry, it won't pump.
If the holes are clogged with sawdust, it won't work.
Here is a video that may help:

You may have gotten some saw dust particles inside the oil resevoir that got sucked into the delivery tube, thus clogging up the oiler...you can drain the oil out of resevoir and run some seafoam thru the oil resevoir to see if you can get it unclogged

Husqvarna 141 will not oil and when i had it serviced they replaced the oiler and it did not solve the problem.


Remove the chain and bar assembly. Start engine--should pump oil from oiler port where the bar fits on the engine side. If oil comes out, then possibly the bar-oiling passage in the bar itself is plugged with dirt or sawdust--blow clean with compressed air. If no oil comes out from the port, check the pickup tube inside the oil tank. Drain the oil into something and fish the pickup tube end out with a hooked wire. Replace if collapsed, cracked, or loose.

Chainsaw oiler leaks oil out case and no oil on chain


Take the bar and chain off--run the engine--the oiler port from the case should discharge some oil. If none, you have trouble with the oil pump or the tubes to and from it. The oil tank may be leaking at the tank opening for the pickup tube. If oil appears at the oiler port, then there may be dirt/blockage within the oil passages in the bar end. Clean with compressed air.

Have a MAC 3818 chain saw it just stopped oiling.


Same for me. Take chain off and ensure clean oil hole and channel. Clean hole if needed with fine wire or heavy nylon line. otherwise I think problem is interior, either oiler itself or oiler oil tube came loose. Since I have no excess oil coming out I suppose oiler iself is bad.Still working on it.
