Question about Poulan Pro 42CC 2 Cycle Chainsaw, 18"
I've put new chains on and keep the oil filled, but after just a few cut the chain will become so loose that it falls off the chain bar. My model has the little asjuster wheel, so all I have to do is loosen bracket and turn wheel; it doesn't appear to just loosen a little but a-lot and falls off the bar!

SOURCE: Insufficient chain oiling
Sorry to tell you this but you need a new OIL PUMP but it's not a difficult thing to replace.
On the main shaft of the crank shaft under the centrifugal clutch is a spiral wound wire that matches a plastic part that is the oil pump. You can get the part from Poulan parts and it will take about 15 minutes to fix the first time eight minutes the second time.
Glad to be of assistance.

There's a tiny hole on the front of the bar near the bar sprocket. This is used to grease the sprocket. If you go somewhere like Lowe's look in the chainsaw section and you'll find a grease tube that is specially designed to lube the front sprocket. Before lubing use a small wire to clean out any debris from the whole. Press the lube tube against the hole and push repeatedly until grease comes out from the outside of the bar. This should greatly extend the life of the bar.
