I have an older Echo Kioritz 302S chain saw. My son twisted the back bolt off that holds the cain bar in place. Questions; Is it repairable and if so where would I find the part? Is it something I can do at home? I have searched the internet with no luck for repair manuals and or parts. Thank you for your time spent to help me.

The centrifical clutch is probably rusted (or has a broken spring). You can try a small amount of WD-40 inside the clutch to see it that will break it loose.
Also, be sure that the chain tension adjustment is not too tight!!
The Stihl 026 PRO does have an adjustable oiler and it is located on the bottom of the saw just below the clutch drum.
Stihl also builds an 026 "Standard" without the adjustable oiler, however, the hole location for adjustment is still there.
The 026 PRO will also have a decompression valve on top of the saw to make the rope easier to pull during startup. If you have the DECO valve you should also have the adjustable oiler. Hope this helps.
This is from my owners manual. Make sure that the oil passages ih the bar are clear and clean. If so, then remove the bar cover, bar and chain and make sure the oil port from the saw to the bar is clean. If so then run the saw and see if oil is being pumped out of the port. If not then you need to remove the pump which is below the port on the bottom of this area by removing 3 screws and carefully removing it. Make sure the tubing that connects to the pump is also good,then carefully dis-assemble the pump and clean it. there is a small spring in there so be careful. There is an oil filter that must be cleaned. wash all parts in gasoline and inspect the diapragms for tears and holes. if all is well it should be re-assembled and put back on. Thsi is all you can do to repair it yourself and the shop guy can't do much more. hope this helps, Now I gotta go fishin". The jumbo's are hitting in Lake Erie today
