Question about Makita DCS51018 18" 45cc Chain Saw 2 Cycle
Chain saw is new. Oiler not working. No warranty. Bought as is. Would like to fix myself. Thanks
Before you tear apart and purchase a new oiling assembly. Remove the sprocket cover, bar, and chain. Above the bar studs there is a horizontal groove the oil should flow from. If it is packed with sawdust clean this out. After cleaning or it is clean start the saw with all of the items removed. You should see the oil flowing. If there is no oil the oil pump is bad or clogged. If it flows your bar is clogged. Clean the oiling hole on the bar and groove. Hope this helps.

OK found a complete oil pump for this saw, part number is 181245250 and if you would like to download a copy of the breakdown go to Makitatools.com and in the bottom go to Makita Canada and you can find it there. I don't know why they don't have it in the US version but that is where I got it from Good Luck and let me know if I can be of any more help
