Chain Lube Pouring Out of Chainsaw

Should there be a screw or plug located behind the mounting bar plate that controls the flow of chain lube onto the bar? I bought a used Poulan Pro PPB1838 LE chainsaw. When I add chain lube it leaks out of that hole as quick as I pour it in. Leads me to believe there is something missing that should be in that hole. I looked at the schematic on the Poulan Pro site and cannot see enough detail to figure out if something is missing.

Oil pump 266 xp


The pump or gasket could be bad. Make sure you use only bar and chain lube as this can also effect flow.

How to change a chain


First of all, make sure the saw is off. Also, before removing bolts, make sure the chain brake is not engaged (the chain should move freely).
Remove the guide bar side panel. Using a scwrench or wrench, unscrew the nuts and remove the plate to access the chain.

The side plate on most chainsaws will be held on by two nuts. Loosen the blade adjustment screw (a pin that is usually driven by a screw and pushes the blade out from the chainsaw to keep the chain tension tight).

The old chain is ready to be removed now that the sprocket plate is off of the saw. Pull the nose of the chainsaw's bar away from the chainsaw to release it from the tensioner.

Remove the old chainsaw chain.

The chain will easily remove from the guide bar with all that slack in it. Note the orientation of the cutting edges of the chain so you put the new one on the same way.

Pull the drive links out of the guide bar and slip the other end of the chain around the clutch drum.

Steps to Install a New Chainsaw Chain
Thread the new chain onto the saw.

Carefully thread your new or recently sharpened chainsaw chain around the chainsaw's clutch drum, making sure that the drive links engage in the sprocket.



Thread the rest of the drive links into the guide bar and around its nose, making sure all links are in the guide bar slot.
Align the guide bar.

With the chain properly threaded along the clutch drum and guide bar, put some tension into it by pulling on the nose of the guide bar away from the chainsaw.



While pulling the guide bar, make sure to seat it onto the saw's adjustment pin.

Replace the side plate.

The side plate is ready to go back on as long as the guide bar is properly positioned beneath.

Replace the plate and the nuts that hold it into position, but do not tighten the nuts down all the way yet. The guide bar must be allowed to move a little while the chain is tightened to the correct tension.
Tighten the chain to the correct tension. Use the tensioning screw to the side of the guide bar to adjust the tension on the chainsaw chain.



Finish tightening the side plate nuts.

The chainsaw chain replacement is now complete.


And here is a great overall reference guide to keeping a chainsaw sharp and running. Sharpening a chainsaw chain is a great way to extend the life and is less expensive and easier than replacing a chain. There are small grinding tools (like a dremel) that can be run off a small 12v battery or your vehicle battery that allow for quick 'tune-ups' on your chain if you are out cutting and need to sharpen your chain.

Bar lube is having trouble come from the small hole located behind the bar . Is the lube pumped though or is it cravity feed.? When i remove the bar and chain , start the motor a very tiny amount will...


There is a pumped volume adjustment screw located near the rear case bottom and the lower part of the chain. Turn CCW somewhat to increase volume. Be sure to clean the bar oil passages including the two small channels that run from the large holes out to the chain groove on each side. Clean the entire groove. When everything is back together, run the saw at speed with the bar tip near a piece of cardboard--it should throw off a thin line of oil after several moments. Hope this helps!

Husqvarna chainsaw 440e - enough chain lube?


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,

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.

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.
