How to correct no oil flow to bar on Model172.34120


ive not done much with this model but I can give you some basics on why I see lots of chainsaws loose there oiling of bar
(1) Wrong oil used in supply tank- most all chain saws take 30 wt bar chain oil . this is a lite/fine oil and needs to be so it flows thru small ports and pump on saws
(2) fine sawdust in supply tank - I guess anything can fall in the tank but I do find theres a lot of junk that falls in there over time , if it don't flow like oil does then it don't belong in the tank
(3) sawdust jammed in bar ports this id say is the biggest one I find , seems sawdust (all different size pieces) finds its way into the fine ports that oil is suppose to flow thru , sawdust mixed with oil makes a darn fine plug !!!

other than these simple things above , most saws have lots of parts that can break and fall off look for something just not right looking and sometimes it will be very obvious whats missing

I have husky 435 and want to put a 14" bar on the


Most all brands of chain saws will except one size smaller and one size bigger than what came with the saw. You just have to make sure the bolt holes and the hole for the adjustment pin match the origional bar.

My husqvarna automatic chain oiler doesn,t work...235 husqvarna any fixes?.


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

What is the biggest bar and chain i can use


The recommended length of bar for the 460 is 13 to 20 inches. I wouldn't go over the recommended length as it would put extra strain on the motor.

Can i switch my 18inch bar to a 20inch bar on the poulan wildthing


Oregon lists nothing beyond 18". I would not go beyond that.

If you need a 20" Home Depot rents 6401 Makitas (blue Dolmars). Biggest danger here is you will never be happy with the Wild Thing again. You can often purchase a used Makita at Home Depot for a very good price. The 6401 can be modified to a 7900, a lot of saw. HTH

I would like to go down A bar size our two on my poulan wildthing


I have a Poulan Pro 295 20".  When I bought it I also bought a 16"bar and chain and have been using those since.  They make the saw much easier to handle and are a better match to the available power. The key dimension is from the bar's mounting hole to its end.  At the store look at the normal replacement bar for your 18" saw, and pick out a 16" or even 14" bar with the same dimensions there.  This can be easily seen by laying one bar over the other.

Need true chain/bar size for my husqvarna Model 254 chainsaw


Maximum bar size of 20" but would recommend 18", if it is running sluggish, check compression, if low replace the piston, if it is 135psi or more then make sure the airfilter is clean and then tune the carb and make sure you get good revs and throttle response throughout the rev range, use the typical carb adjustments from the owners manual from the Husky web site. This is a 5hp saw and is capable of cutting some big lumps of hardwood so no excuses on the power front
