Sorry to tell you this but you need a new OIL PUMP but it's not a difficult thing to replace.
On the main shaft of the crank shaft under the centrifugal clutch is a spiral wound wire that matches a plastic part that is the oil pump. You can get the part from Poulan parts and it will take about 15 minutes to fix the first time eight minutes the second time.
Glad to be of assistance.

    In addition I might add that to remove the centrifugal clutch it unscrews from the crankshaft with a left hand thread. A little trick to remove anything from a crankshaft that could turn while you want to unscrew the item, Remove the spark plug and insert some rope into the cylinder for the piston to squeeze against and you will jam the piston without damage.

There is a possibility that when you change the pump you still won't have chain oiling. It happened on my poulan saw, which is similar to the wild thing. I still haven't figured out the answer.

Where does the chain oil exit the tank and drop on the chain?


take off the side cover over the chain clutch/drive, don't forget to loosen the chain tension before removing, clean thoroughly, clean oil ports on saw and on the chain bar (little holes)clean the chain bar. Start the saw with the chain and bar removed and you should see oil coming from the port on the engine. Reassemble

I have a Poulan 295. I needed to replace the chain. It is a 20" chain. There is bar oil in the resevoir. The chain will not stay on the bar (it seems loose even when fully tightened). I replaced...


If you replaced the bar AND the chain, you'll need to make sure the chain is the correct chain for the particular bar you've used. If you're only replacing the chain, you need to make sure the chain has the same # of drive links as your old chain (maybe one or two more, if you've had some removed because of chain stretch).

On that particular model, for a 20" chain, you could have a 78 OR 80 drive link chain (drive links being the part of the chain that rides in the groove of the bar). The correct drive link count is determined by the bar you've installed and should have been made clear by whoever you purchased the bar from. Some brands use an 80 drive link chain, but MOST use the 78 drive link chain.

If the bar you purchased uses the 78 drive link chain, but you have an 80 drive link chain, then no matter how far out you adjust the bar, you may not get the chain tight enough. PartsBuggy shows a listing of which bars use the 78 drive link chains here.

My Poulan Pro chain saw (model # PP4620 AVHD) doesot move B&C oil from the oil reservoir to the chain. How can I repair this?


If the ports where the oil comes out aren't clogged, you will have to order a oil pump and then take apart the saw from right underneath the bar. The oil pump is run by a worm gear that strips easily.

Bar oil leaking after use


Release the chain brake, back off the chain adjustment screw several turns, then remove the side cover and the bar/chain. Clean the engine side case where the bar fits to and run the engine for a few moments--oil should ooze out of the side port in the engine. If ok, then clean the removed parts including the two small channels in the drive end of the bar that convey oil out to the chain groove on each side. Reassemble everything and then run the tip of the bar near some cardboard for several moments at speed--it should throw off a thin line of oil onto the board. Unless you have a leaking oil line or the tank is split, you should have minimal leaking problems. Hope this helps!

Poulan Pro Chain Saw Bar Chain Oiler Stopped Flowing


The filter can usually be caught with a hooked wire and drawn up far enough to deal with the filter. Oil filters are not prone to plugging unless the oil used is contaminated. If you run the engine without the bar and chain attached, oil should ooze out of the engine side port. If nothing, suspect problems with the oil pump. Some saws use a plastic gear in the pump and can strip the teeth of the gear. You should find it located behind the clutch assembly. Once you have oil flowing from the engine, clean the bar drive-end oil ports that go from the large holes out to the chain groove on each side. Finally, run the bar tip near some cardboard--it should throw off a thin line of oil. I have no idea what the plastic tube might be (a manual pumper perhaps?). Hope this helps!

No chain oil coming through


Remove the side cover, bar and chain. Clean the side oil port and any passages connected. Use compressed air to blow out the oiling passages in the drive end of the bar including the small ports that connect the chain guide slot to the larger holes in the bar. Run the motor for a short time without the bar and chain, there should be oil that oozes out of the side port. If not, then the pump, the filter in the oil tank, and the intervening oil line needs to be checked. When everything is back together, the far end of the bar should throw off a fine line of oil on a piece of cardboard after running for a little while. Hope this helps!

I have a poulan wild thing 18" bar and I have had a problem with the bars wearing out quickly. I use regular poulan bar and chain oil. Did this saw have a specific problem with the oiling system?


If the oil level in the chain oil tank goes down normally then you may be running the chain too tight. Also make sure the oil ports in the bar are clear so the oil can get to the chain. hope this helps you

Cant Get The Chain To Stay On


Well, you have 2 choices. First one is to buy a new chain. Second one is to take your chain in somewhere and have a link removed. If you think this chain is that stretched you should check your chain oiler and make sure that it's working. Take the chain and bar off and run the saw and look at the oil port and see if oil is coming out. Also check the oil ports in the bar and make sure they are clear. The only way a chain can get this loose is from wear in the pins in the chain from running dry or too tight. Also make sure the surfaces on the bar where the chain rides are flat and square or your saw wont cut straight. Hope this helps you.

Bar sprocket smokes, gets hot spot


Sounds like you're not getting enough oil to the chain. Basically you've got an oil pump, pickup and filter involved in getting oil from the resovior to the chain/bar. If you cleaned the obvious area and the chain is not coated with oil, you may have a clog further up (inside) the oil delivery mechanisms. Also, drain the oil from the tank, and see if you can "blow" air through there. With the saw running & pointed down, you should be able to see oil on the ground being slung off the chain, if not, you are not getting enough oil to the chain.
