I have a Mcculloch 435 Chain saw and the chain oiler doesn't work. Does anybody have a breakdown on what parts are in it and how the oil flows? The screws came loose on the pump and I don't know if anything is lost.
This is a common problem and requires replacement of the pump. remove the bar and chain, the pump comes loose with a few screws. under it you'll see the filter which could be clogged, but not usually as contaminants are not likely to enter the tank. Small engine shops can order the new pump for you, hope this helps

I fear you are correct about the oiler problem. I see a lot of oiler problems on these saws. Sooner or later Husky will have to address it. Ask the dealer about modifying your oiler; the 350 has an adjustable and might fit 1 or both of these saws. I think Husky needs to admit the nonadjustable is a mistake, and come up with a fix.
If you want to do some research start with the IPLs here: HusqvarnaUSA.com http://www.husqvarna.com/us/homeowner/support/download-manuals/ Enter the 3 digit model number (no XPs, Es, just the numbers) Serial number decode – useful when downloading IPLs and Manuals 06 1500198 06 = year produced – 2006 (single digit before 2000) 15 = week produced - March 00198 = 198th unit Husky produced that week
Please post back (below) with what happens at the dealer. Take your buddy and his saw with you! Good Luck. HTH
If Husky starts modifying all these with 350 oilers I want compensation...LOL
The oiler pumps on Macs are the usual suspect, try this: Oil System Plugged.
Remove the clutch cover, bar, and chain, clean the bar groove, any holes and passages on the rear of the bar (both sides, consider rotating the bar) Clean the saw oiler hole and channel. Start the saw and see if it oils when revved up. If yes reassemble your saw. If no, continue with 2.
Insert a blunted, hooked piece of wire through the oil filler hole and pull the hose in the oil tank out (clean or replace, difficult to determine serviceability). Work your way through the linkage cleaning and replacing any defective parts as you go. Carefully check the hoses for cracks especially at bends and connections. If equipped with an oil pump it is usually behind the clutch (clutch is a left handed thread). Please make extensive notes & some digital pictures will help during reassembly.
Build an IPL number like this: McCulloch Manual Illustrated Parts Lists: (IPLs) are fairly simple, on the underside of McCulloch saws is a black and yellow tag; the upper number (“Power Mac 320” 600021H) is the model, below it a serial number (11-18555). These 2 numbers are combined to create an IPL number (“Power Mac 320” IPL number = 11-600021H). The IPL number can be used to find the correct IPL for every McCulloch parts supplier I have found. If the parts supplier only list part numbers the proper IPL is the source for the part number.
If you can not find parts please repost with the IPL number and I will share my secret Mac parts source.
This is a little complicated so I’m going in small steps. http://www.m-and-d.com/parts.html Click “Illustrated Parts Diagrams ON LINE” Click “Click Here for Parts Lookup” Changes to “Select OEM” Window reads “Briggs & Stratton ▼” Click the arrow and select “McCulloch Power” Click “Gasoline-Powered Chain Saws” Click “11-600035-20” Click “Powerhead Assembly” Item 1 is the oil pump $9.48 You can construct a veryry detailed parts breakdown for your saw with a little effort. I recommend you do it. If you were looking for a sprocket earlier it is on the same detail page as the oiler $12.05. There is a shipping and handling charge from M & D (about $9) if all parts in same container only one fee. I’ve found McCulloch parts here I can get no where else and they are reasonable.
Given this detail and a little effort on your part she can oil again. Even this thread is closed you can still add to this thread below the advertisements. I'll try to remember to check for additional questions. Good Luck with your project Lou
I cannot find any 3200 series IPLs. Individual models can be found here: McCulloch IPLs http://www.ordertree.com/modelinfo/McCulloch/139.59.html If this is a Chinese Mac (MTD) they are very difficult to work on. Most saw shops will not repair one. GL Oil System Plugged. Remove the clutch cover, bar and chain. Clean the oiler hole and channel. Start the saw and see if it oils when revved up.

You can always put some penentrating oil in the saw oil tube by the bar, spray it in with the plastic straw attatched. Sometimes this will clean things out. As far as the tube being un attatched,,,, taking case apart is usually the remedy - kinda takes a while... :) Hope this helps you, Rick.
