The filter can usually be caught with a hooked wire and drawn up far enough to deal with the filter. Oil filters are not prone to plugging unless the oil used is contaminated. If you run the engine without the bar and chain attached, oil should ooze out of the engine side port. If nothing, suspect problems with the oil pump. Some saws use a plastic gear in the pump and can strip the teeth of the gear. You should find it located behind the clutch assembly. Once you have oil flowing from the engine, clean the bar drive-end oil ports that go from the large holes out to the chain groove on each side. Finally, run the bar tip near some cardboard--it should throw off a thin line of oil. I have no idea what the plastic tube might be (a manual pumper perhaps?). Hope this helps!

have you drained oil tank and checked oil pickup filter ?
have you checked oil tank breather ?
next check the drum and worm oil pump driver , they should have no damage to them , and engage the drum and worm should engage the pump shaft correctly with no slipping or binding , check the oil outlet hose is clear and make sure the pick up hose is clear with no holes / tears in its length but mostly sounds like the oil pump and worm need replacing ?
if you find a worm pump and worm gear replace them and make sure the oil pick hose seals off the oil tank to pump opening ( because if it sucks air with will not pump properly ) and oil will leak out under gravity while sitting
