SOURCE: location of bar oiler adjustment screw on p4018wt

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.

SOURCE: Where is the bar oil adjusted from on husqvarna 345

Turn the Hus 345 chain saw upside down, you may see a little Icon of a oil droplet and a + - arrow by the chain. THe adjustment screw is not pictured in any of the standard user manuals,. but it is a small black slot headed screw over a rectangale metal tab by the chain. I believe if you turn it counter-clockwise, it will give you more oil,, It did for me. If you have the bar off, you can start the saw and see it come out the hole, that would verify your oil pump is working. Make sure the holes on the bar are clean also. running the saw at a fast idle for 1 min should oil the chain well enouth that it starts spraying off the end of the bar when you gun the engine.

My chain came off and i can't get the bar back to put the chain back on, help

Hello mingster. Just inside of bar is a screw for adjusting the tension of the chain. The screw hole maybe full of dust & oil. Rotate the screw while holding the chain next to the tip of the bar to determine clockwise or counterclockwise. When adjusting the chain tension don't over tighten.

The oil flow is not adjustable
Check the bar to see if it has something that looks like a flat head screw that you can turn, it is possible that it is equipped with an EZ adjust bar where you can make tension adjustments without loosening the cover. If not, loosen the bar nuts and use the tension screw on the back of the cover to make your adjustments.

Leaks chain oil when not in use

two things come to mind. 1. The oil adjustment screw on the bottom of the saw is set too high for the type of cutting you're doing.
2.If the oil setting is too high, your saw will have an excess residue of oil on the , chain, sprocket, and oiler. When you set the saw down Oil runs out. Try setting the oil adjustment screw back a turn. Find the screw on the bottom of the saw., or check the owners manual. Good Luck! Alvin

Most hobby saws do not have an adjustable pump, if it is adjustable there will be an external screw close the the clutch and sprocket, would would not need to remove the bar and chain to acsess it.

Require adjustment for excessive discharge of chain bar oil. PM145-14 32 cc mod 600032-54 serial 11-022763

Remove the bar and chain after releasing the chain brake. Clean the engine case where the bar fits next to and start the engine--oil should ooze out of the port in the case. If it squirts out, there should be an adjustment screw head that is located in the rear of the case near the returning chain area. Turn the screw CW to reduce oil delivery. Clean the small oil passages in the drive end of the bar that run from the large holes out to the chain groove on each edge. When everything is re-assembled, start the engine and run it at speed with the bar tip near some cardboard for a moment or two. It should throw off a thin line of oil. Adjust the volume screw until you achieve that result. Hope this helps!

I installed new bar and chain .cleaned every thing .assembled saw filled up chain oil thank. started sarted saw ,chain still not oiling.

Without knowing what saw you have it is hard to exact directions.On most saws their is an adjusting screw on the bottom side of saw by oil tank and chain that adjusted the flow rate of oil. If you can locate that try rurning it one turn clockwise and run saw for a short period and see if you are getting any more oil.If youare sure you have the right screw I would continue adjusting . If it doesn''t seem to work I would remove screw and make sure there is no blockage and that oil is present. For proper operation you need to keep a light film of oil on it. If you aren't getting enough oil you will cause chains to overheat,possibly ruining chain and bar. Hope this help you. Thanks

Chain oil flowing out afterr replacing chain adjustment screw and bolt

Remove the bar and chain completely. Clean the entire case side where the bar fits as well as the bar drive end oil passages--especially the small channels the send oil out to the chain groove on each side. Back off on the chain adjustment by several turns, then fit the cleaned cover onto the saw after installing the bar and chain. Make sure the adjustment 'tang' fits into one of the large holes in the bar end. Fasten the cover screws/nuts down finger tight, then adjust the bar out until the chain pulls up to the lower run of the bar, but not so tight that you can't move the chain by hand. Tighten the cover fasteners firmly, then recheck chain tension. If ok, do a test cut on a log. Good luck!

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!

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.
