How to stop flow of oil on to chain?


Interesting.
Chain lubrication
is critical to the life of the bar and chain.
I'd be suspicious that you may not be using heavy viscosity chain lubrication oil.
Light weight oil will flow much faster.

MY HUSQVARTA 340 STARTS BUT THEN DIES AND THE OIL TO THE CHAIN DOES NOT DISTRIBUTE TO THE CHAIN IT ENDS UP AT THE END OF THE BAR


Remove the fuel hose from inide the fuel tank and replace the fuel filter, remove the top cover and clean the air filter, now try again, the chain oil is delivered to the top of the bar and is taken around the bar by the drive links, make sure you are useing a non fling chain oil, remove the guide bar and clean out the delivery hole, now try again.

The saw is a 385xp. We have changed bars and chains numerous times. When sawing the bar gets hot enough to fry an egg and the chain stretches out. Onlynable to saw a minute or teo at the time. bar gets...


Overheating the chain/bar is usually caused by insufficient oil getting to the chain, but can be caused by the chain being too tight to begin with (you should be able to turn the chain by hand), grit in the chain groove, or a poorly sharpened chain. The saw has an oil volume adjustment screw on the lower part of the case near the chain return area. Turning it CCW should increase oil flow. Oil volume can be judged by running the saw tip at speed near some cardboard for a moment--it should throw off a thin line of oil. Chain sharpening condition can be judged by the sawdust residue coming from the cut--if a powder-like material, the teeth are not sharp or are improperly filed. You should not have to bear down excessively on the saw to make it cut quickly. Hope some of this helps!

How much chain bar oil should my husqvarna 340 use?


A rough equivalent is one oil tank for one fuel tank. Check the chain oiling by running the bar tip near some cardboard at speed for a few moments--it should throw off a thin line of oil. Hope this helps!

Husqvarna 272 xp, setting for setting screw for oiler


To check for proper oiling, run the saw at speed with the tip of the bar near a piece of cardboard--it should throw off a thin line of oil after several moments of running. Adjust the oil adjust screw CCW for more oil. The screw is usually in the lower front or underneath the engine. Remove the bar and chain first before adjusting anything and check the oil passages located in the drive end of the bar for plugging--especially the two small passages that go from the large oil holes out to the chain groove on both sides. Start the engine without the bar and chain--look at the oil port where the bar mounts next to the engine. It should ooze out oil with the engine running fast. If nothing at all, the pump, oil lines, and oil filter in the tank should be checked. When everything seems to be working, then adjust oil flow for best operation. Hope this helps!
