This happens for two reasons. First of all, take off the chain and the bar and clean it all up as saw dust may be the culprit. The other reason is that some chain oils are too thick. you can thin it down a little bit by adding a little kerosene or gasoline.

How engine oil i put?


You mix the petrol with "2 stroke oil" at a ratio of 40:1. Use good quality 2 stroke oil like Husqvarna or Stihl rather than the cheaper ones you get in service stations.

You also need to use Chain Oil which goes in the opening marked Oil. You can get chain oil from any tool hire company or hardware store. It needs to be refilled each time you refill the fuel mix.

What type oil for chainsaw, both w/gas for fuel and also chain lubrication


You mix 2 stroke oil with the petrol/gas at a rate of 40:1 (40 parts petrol to 1 oil). For longer life use a good quality oil like Husqvarna or Stihl rather than the cheaper types you buy at car service stations.

The oil you use for the chain lubrication is just known as chain oil and can be bought at tool hire outlets.

What is the oil/gas ratio for a McColloch "Titan


40:1 is the ratio for modern saws so I expect it's the same for the older ones. Use good 2 stroke oil like Husqvarna or Stihl brands rather than the cheaper stuff you can buy at car service stations which don't really protect a saw.

What is the recommended oil/fuel mix for Husqvarna 136 chain saw please?


40:1 is the recommended mixture for husqvarna chainsaws. Use husqvarna 2 stroke oil rather than the cheap types you get at car service stations as they will not protect your saw like the good quality oil.

No problem; using a borrowed Husqvarna 44-don't know fuel mixtures (if any). The chamber for "oil"-is that engine oil (if so, what do you recommend) or chain saw oil (if not, is there another...


The mix fuel mix is 40:1. Use Husqvarna 2 stroke oil not the cheap stuff on sale at car service stations. The chamber for oil is for chain oil which can be bought at most places that sell or hire machinery like chainsaws, lawnmowers etc.

I have a husqvarna 257 with a 20inch bar and having oiling problems, is getting hardly any to no oil and have the oil adjuster screw the whole ways out, is the oil plunger bad?


If you take the bar off, and then run the saw, does oil come out of the saw? If it does, then the oil pump is likely working O.K.

If the oil comes out of the saw and does not make it onto the chain, it is possible that the oil exit slot on the saw, and the hole on the bar are not lining up properly. This happened on my Husqvarna 141 saw. The oil was coming out of the saw fine, but it never made it to the bar and chain. As a consequence the chain was always dry and very, very hot.

The other saws we use, always have plenty of oil on the chain. I think Husqvarna may have made a design flaw on some of their saws, and the exit point of the saw and the entry to the bar are not properly aligned. I wonder how many saws this affects.
