THIS WORKED FOR ME....I have a 2014. I've had that problem for quite awhile. I finally decided to try to fix it. I took the bar and chain off, removed all the crud in there. Then I took a small air compressor and blew out the entire area so it was pretty clean. I started the saw at this point and gunned it some. The oil became noticible within a few seconds where it comes out at, above the outer chain bar bolt. Once I found the hole, I then drained the oil tank, and then using the air pump, blew out the hole from the blade area to the tank, leaving the oil cap OFF. Upon refilling the oil tank with a lighter oil (10 wt), I restarted the saw, and the flow was really coming. After the oil; tank empties, I'll start using the regular bar-and-chain oil again, but it's pretty heavy, even though it says it is 30 wt.

Unable to locate adjustment control for chain oiler model 345 husqvarna chainsaw


Not all 345 machines had an adjustable oiler, it is retro fittable if it does not, however if it hs an adjuster, the screw is located on the bottom of the saw between the cranckcase and the fuel tank, just below the sprocket, there will be an oil symbol and a - and + sign there, the pump is three position, for 13/15/18" bars.

Is there a bar oil adjustment screw on the Poulan P4018WT chainsaw? No oil coming out of hole when running. Reservoir is full. If I blow air into the hole, a little oil will come out. Thanks.


No there is no adjustment for the oil, the oiler is a fixed unit, there will be a filter on the end of the oil pick up pipe, you can try draining the oil, fill the tank with cleaning fluid and give the tank a good rinse out, this will help to clean the the filter inside, if this does not help you will need to remove the clutch and sprocket to get to the oil pump, the oil pump piston has a nylon worm which may have stripped

I replaced the bar and chain on my Husky 450 and was told to adjust chain tension frequently until broken in. After moderate initial use (half dozen 2" to 6" cuts), I checked and found chain...


Yes you are not getting enough oil to the bar, the 350 has a three position oil pump so turn this up to max, there is also a filter in the base of the oil tank held with a single cross head screw, remove and clean, if no better it may have stripped the oil pump drive gear driven by the sprocket.

How do you a just the chain oiler?


There is a Oiler set screw on the bottom of your saw next to the oil container that has three settings. One way to check to see if it is oiling enough is to put a piece of cardboard or other material in front of the bar while it is running. Keep steady pressure on the trigger and hold the chain about 4-5 inches away from the piece of material. If you see a vertical line, the bar is getting enough oil.

Need to locate chain & bar oiler adjustment screw for mac 3200 chain saw


Look to the lower left side of the bar (as you hold the saw normally)--there should be a screw head in the engine case there. Check the adjustment by holding the bar tip at speed near a piece of cardboard for a couple of moments--it should throw off a thin line of oil. Hope this helps!

Husqvarna 272 xp, setting for setting screw for oiler


To check for proper oiling, run the saw at speed with the tip of the bar near a piece of cardboard--it should throw off a thin line of oil after several moments of running. Adjust the oil adjust screw CCW for more oil. The screw is usually in the lower front or underneath the engine. Remove the bar and chain first before adjusting anything and check the oil passages located in the drive end of the bar for plugging--especially the two small passages that go from the large oil holes out to the chain groove on both sides. Start the engine without the bar and chain--look at the oil port where the bar mounts next to the engine. It should ooze out oil with the engine running fast. If nothing at all, the pump, oil lines, and oil filter in the tank should be checked. When everything seems to be working, then adjust oil flow for best operation. Hope this helps!

My Poulan Bar & Chain Oil gets used up very, very quickly???


Results for a Poulan 4018WT Type 2 (WildThing)
That is excessive, make them repair it. Your saw is warranted for 1 year.
The IPL lists no oiler adjustment and the Operator's Manual doesn't mention any oiler adjustment.

If you using any Bar Oil (30 weight with stuff added to make adhere to your bar and chain) and not a light weight motor oil I recommend you contact Poulan and make them repair it. Anything you attempt may void your warranty, do nothing without an official OkeyDokey. Get names, dates, and times in an e-mail for any official OkeyDokeys and save a copy them somewhere a computer crash won't wipe them out.

Contact Poulan here:
Poulan.com The dash number of your serial number is the type.

Chain oiler


Depends on the vintage, turn the saw upside down and you can see a screw to turn, 3 settings, right under the clutch and shaft. use a screw driver if it is adjustable. I like to keep mine set on high, oil is cheaper that new chains and bars. Use a bar oil, not old used motor oil.
