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.

How do you remove a clutch drum on Poulan Pro PP4620AVHD chain saw


YouTube can be a great help with video's of 'how to' do things.

I have attached a video from 'donnyboy73.' I found his video's to be very informative and well put together. The video link is not of your exact saw but is a Poulan and I hope will be helpful to you.

How to adjust a poulon pro chain saw 46cc 20" chain tighting


First, I'd read the manual if in doubt. No matter the type of adjuster, tool-less or not, you loosen the bar nuts, tighten the adjuster until the chain just touches the bar on the bottom (while holding the bar nose up) then tighten the bar nuts. Chain should move easily.
Re Poulan chain tightening. Be sure it's oiled and sharp, of course.

Recently purchased; on first run, smoke kept coming out of chain gear area. Tried to adjust several times to no avail. Finally switched to a different bar and chain combination and all worked well. Is it...


It is possible to have a mix match, if the machine sprocket is 3/8 and the bar nose sprocket was say .325 you will have problems, also if the gauge of the bar and chain are different from one another the chain could be tight in the bar.

  • “Engine Assembly” print; not illustrated; part number 545006011; Scrench; $9.75.
This is the configuration professionals have used forever. The only thing to remember here is to hold the nose of the bar up when adjusting and tightening the bar nuts.

The dash number of your serial number is the type.
I think this is the what you seek:
http://www.ordertree.com/modelinfo/PWE/PP4620AVX-Gas-Saw/75.PP4620AVX-Gas-Saw.1.59.1.html
The "Handle, Chassis, and Bar Assembly" detail
Items 63 through 69 are parts, I think item 70 is a complete assembly ($22.78 without a kiss).

Your saw without tooless adjustment.

Item 64 (complete assembly) $2.53.

If my saw I'd ask if it can be modified!!!

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

Oiler thus not deliver oil to the chain


Take the chain and bar off and run a small drill by hand into the hole where oil comes out. If it is not blocked you can "stretch" the hole a little bigger and hopefully resolve this.

Bar oiling problem


Just a thought: Is it cold where you are? At this saw mill where it is my job to keep chain saws running, learned years ago that you cannot use "bar oil" in winter. Need thinner oil, like motor oil. ....preferably a "non-detergent" motor oil, plain 30-weight is OK, HD30W will work, but the HD part causes the chain to stretch more so than standard bar oil. The bar oil literally is so thick in cold that it stripped the worm gear out of a Poulan Pro oil pump (plastic gear, anyways, wasn't much to begin with.) But thought you may want to try thinner oil, if it is cold where you are. Oh yea we also have 2-Husqvarna 359's with 20-inch bar, and use thinner oil in winter. Our Husqvarnas have an oil adjuster located on bottom, on clutch side. Straight slot screw adjustment.
