Question about Chainsaws
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?
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.

That seems low to me. Page 15 in your manual is the only oil discussion I found. Usually there is an oil pump adjustment reference somewhere. I didn't see one beyond return it for service on page 15. Are the chain and bar hot after cutting a while? I recommend you not get a longer bar without an oiler adjustment. I think the hand of the EPA has been here.
An IPL (exploded parts list) for a 440 can be found here:
There is no oiler adjuster listed. HTH
Might be a good idea to copy the IPL,
