Poulan Pro Chainsaw PPB1838 Bar Lube Leaking Out

I purchased a used chainsaw. Started and ran fine when the guy sold it to me. When I got home and filled it with chain lube, it leaked out as fast as I poured it in. I removed the cover, chain and bar. The bottom of the mounting bar plate was sheared off and the chain catcher was also missing a chunk out of it. I can see the where the lube is leaking from when I removed the mounting bar plate. It looks to be about a 1/8 inch diameter hole where the lube is probably supposed to come out of. The hole is not threaded so it does not look like a screw of any type was initially in it. The problem is that the hole is wide open with no kind of check valve or anything else in it regulating the amount of lube. Is this supposed to be this way? Do all I need is a new mounting bar plate to fix the problem or is there something else missing from inside the lube's holding tank?
Thanks

If this is a Poulan as listed I would go to psep.biz and look at a schematic for the tool. You would need the model number and type number but their breakdowns are good.

SOURCE: Chainsaw Bar Lube Oil Leaking

A new mounting bar would solve this issue. On that mounting bar there is a little piece that allows oil to drop onto the bar when you call for it or if this is a electric bar oil chain saw. Then it tracks when it needs to open.

Chain moves while idle


Hello there. Regarding the bar oil, many loggers plan their work so that they are out of bar oil at the same time that they quit for the day because bar oil has a tendency to leak. Another method that has some success is to mix your bar oil with a heavier oil but the trade off might be less lube getting to the chain when you need it.

Regarding the chain moving in idle, this is another common problem. You can usually slow the idle down until the chain stops, as you indicated, but I too have had chain saws where I finally just decided to live with it and be extra attentive to what was going on.
