Replace the oil pump..Or just try to clean it out but I have been through this and it worked for about ten minutes and I ended up just replacing the pump and works fine now. They are not very expensive (35.00-40.00) and only takes about ten minutes. Get a beer and a table or the tail gate of you truck should be fine. Take off the side cover remove the bar and chain. Clean everything up... air compressor is best a paint brush and rag works good if you do not have a air compressor. Take the top plastic cover (three screws on top of the saw). Pull the spark plug and feed a piece of rope into the cylinder. This will bind up saw so you can remove the clutch. I use a pull start rope from my old lawn mower and keep it in my saw box for this reason. This size and kind of rope seems to work best. Now you need to remove the clutch. There is an arrow on the clutch that tells you which way to turn it to get it off. This can sometimes be tricky but don't give up. I'm sure there is a tool for this and I keep saying that I'm going to make something. I use the handle of a good strong pair of pliers and turn the plier with a pair of vice grips. When you see the clutch you'll figure out something to use to loosen it and spin it off. Un-spin the clutch and remove the clutch drum by just sliding it off the spindle. Be careful because there is a bushing with needle bearings. The bearings are in there pretty good and wont just fall out. If you want to replace that you can 14.00 or so. There is also a plastic drive gear for the pump that just lifts out , replace it too 6.00 or so. Take off the metal cover I think it's just one screw. When you remove the cover you may see a lot of saw dust and oil all packed inside. If you have an air compressor just blow it all out. The oil pump is right there and is simply removed with one screw. clean every thing up put the new pump in put everything back together and you should be back in business.

check the hose that goes to the oilway if everything checks clear you may have a crack in your oil tank due to excessive vibration and weak molding.

SOURCE: Clutch slipping?
These are related. On your saw the oiler only supplies oil when the clutch turns, and I am going to ignore the oil problem. If it does not oil after clutch replacement please post back. The oil pump is inboard behind the clutch Please inspect it and the worm gear before reassembly.
A link to an "IPL, 455 Rancher, 455 e, 460, 2009-10, Chain Saw" follows (may not be your saw):
The clutch face is on item 1. Inspect the drum (item 3) for glazing. If extreme it may require replacement too. There is also a bearing (item 4) that might effect both problems I suggest you replace it as part of the clutch repair. These parts may be available at your local Husky dealer, if so it will save time and shipping cost. Showing him your parts might be a good idea too.
This is helpful with clutch removal.

Take the bar and chain from the saw. Clean the two small ports that run from the large oil holes at the drive end of the bar out to the chain groove on each side. Clean the entire chain groove. Start the engine with these parts removed--oil should ooze out from the side port in the engine case with the engine running at med speed. If it doesn't, then there is trouble near the pump inside the case. When everything is back together, run the saw at full speed with the bar tip near a piece of cardboard--it should throw off a thin line of oil onto the cardboard after a few moments of running. Hope this helps!

Suspect that the chain hit a rock or pocket of dirt which will dull the chain in a heartbeat plus pull debris into the chain groove area. Remove the bar and chain and clean everything thoroughly including the chain and bar groove. Inspect the chain teeth carefully looking for burned teeth and other physical damage. If badly damaged, suggest replacing the chain. It's not likely that the bar sliding surfaces have been severely damaged. When you have everything back together and the chain adjusted, start the saw and run the bar tip near some cardboard--it should throw off a thin line of oil in a few moments. There should be an oil volume adjustment screw on the back or just under the same area near the chain return. Turn the screw CCW to increase flow. Hope this helps!
