Question about Poulan P3314 14" Gas Chain Saw 2.0 Cuin 33CC 2 Cycl

Poulan P3314 Automatic Oiler

I am attempting to replace my automatic oiler gear worm on my P3314 Poulan Chain Saw. I've got it pretty much torn apart, except I think I need to remove the Chain Brake Assembly which is sitting on top of the pump assembly. The Chain Brake Assembly looks like it's attached with 2 screws, but there is a warning on the assembly that says..."Caution-Spring Under Tension-See Users Manual, but there is nothing in the users manual on how to remove it. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks for your response. I have a "blow up" of the saw, and the people at Poulan were of no help. I can see 2 bolts to take off the chain brake, but it says "CAUTION....SPRING UNDER PRESSURE". I guess what I'm trying to find out is.....if I take the 2 bolts out, will the assembly just come off or is it going to go

    "TWANG" and blow parts all over the place. I don't think the latter is the case, but just inquiring. Thanks again,

Brand new poulan pro 4620avx--bar oil is coming out of oiler but not getting onto chain

Hello. Thin your bar oil just a wee bit with some kerosene. If you have a gallon of bar oil add 1/4 cup of kerosene, stir it up and you will be fine. For starters also, directly apply some bar oil to the chain so that you are always using a well lubed chain. Joe

The automatic bar oiler isn't working. What

Oil System Plugged.
  1. 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), if equipped with a sprocket nose ensure it rotates easily at least one complete revolution. Clean the saw oiler hole and channel. Insert a blunted, hooked piece of wire through the oil filler hole and pull the hose in the oil tank out. Pay attention to the screen or filter on the free end (clean or replace, difficult to determine serviceability). Start the saw and see if it oils when revved up. If yes reassemble your saw. If no, continue with 2.
  2. 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.
If it does not oil on completion of 1 it is most likely a bad oiler or worm gear. Please see the IPL to aid in oiler component identification.

Example IPL Poulan 2375LE Gas Saw Type 2 (may not be your saw)
Oiler components are on the "Handle, Chassis & Bar Assembly" print.

It has an outboarb clutch if necessary use this as a guide for removal. I think you need the special tool (Google Search):
R² Drive Link Outboard Clutch by
  1. Check the IPL for your saw to see if any special tools are needed. Poulan (Craftsman, Jonsered, Husky) clutch removal tool part number 530031112 if needed, is under $5 from many sources (look at the visible area between the weights if 2 small round sockets are visible you need the tool).
  2. There are metal piston stops available, when square (almost never) with the piston top these work well, if not square they have been known to punch through the piston. I suggest a length of nylon rope (nothing left behind) be used instead of the piston stop (retain 6" ± so you can remove it). Make sure the piston is near the top of the cylinder before feeding the cord or it can fall through the exhaust port and damage the piston as it rises.
  3. Everyone I have ever removed had a left handed thread (tighten it to loosen it).
If the example is not your saw it can be found here:
The dash number of your serial number is the type.

I need remove the clutch on my 2150 poulan pro chain saw, so I can fix the chain oiler.

Good film. Make certain the piston is above the exhaust port or the rope can fall through and damage the piston above the piston ring. When started it comes apart and destroys the saw.
The oiler worm gear is behind the metal cover visible once all clutch parts are removed. HTH

Bar oiler not working

Talked to a friend woodcutter & he advised me to replace the worm gear behind the clutch. I found the part at Sears,($10) Replaced it & the saw is working fine again. PS to get the clutch off remove the spark plug & incert a piece of rope. That binds the engin so the clutch is easily removed. CB
