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,

Chain brake locked up on Poulan 3314

About all you can do when that happens is disassemble it and put it back together after a good cleaning and check for broken parts while you have it apart. Good luck.

Chian oiler seems not to be supplying oil... model 3314

See if you can get to the output orifice with the tube from some canned air, and blow it out. Sawdust gets down in the tank and plugs up the orifice. You'll have to empty the tank and flush it with kerosene, or a similar product, after getting the orifice cleared. Once you're sure you've got all the crud out, blow dry the tank and refill with oil, and you should be back in business.

My 18" Poulan is awsome,

When it overheats it may not be getting enoiugh oil. The oiler may be weak have it checked. I too, have a Poulan 18" Chainsaw and I think it is great. Everything I own is Poulan Pro or Troy Bilt. They are simply the best for the price.

Chain tightens

For your safety DO NOT leave part of the drive link exposed no matter what some so called expert recommends.

Normally if the nose is not held up when adjusting a chain it slackens. Are you sure the oiler is working? Hold the nose 3 - 8" above a surface (newspaper works well) rev it up a little. You should see a line of slung off oil slowly appear. If excessively tight to begin with, friction may be causing this.
Chain Adjustment
  1. Make sure the chain brake is off (gloves will protest your fingers).
  2. If necessary, loosen the bar nuts that are clamping the clutch cover in place (or whatever holds the clutch cover and bar on). They do not need these really loose - finger tight will do.
  3. Ease the tension adjustment until the chain is obviously loose.
  4. Using one hand, hold the nose of the bar up.
  5. While holding the nose up, adjust the tensioner so that the center of the chain just touches the underside of the bar, add a touch more.
  6. Continue holding the nose of the bar up & tighten up the bar nuts / bolts / quick-release system.
Dale this is a safety item. I suggest you take your saw and cup of premium black coffee to one of your local chainsaw outlets. A sales person should be willing to demonstrate (gratis but no promise) proper tensioning. Buy a couple of replacement chains or some 2-cycle oil while there as a thank you. Please reply below with what you find. Good Luck. HTH

You need to pretension it. Remove the pull handle, rotate the spool about 2 revolutions against the spring, rethread the cord and reinstall the handle.
