Re: how do adjust the oiler on the older husqvarna 61...
I have a 1981 model, it has an adjusting screw under the clutch assy. The screw is visibile (and probably accessible) without removing the clutch. It is a slotted screw with the numbers 1-4 around it. It changes the length of the stroke of the pump (though not by much). Mine is putting out too little oil.

I'm sorry, but I'm not aware of any adjustments that can be made to the oiler. Just make sure the ports are clean so that the oiler doesn't get clogged and that the oil lines are all clear and you should be good.
Not all 345 machines had an adjustable oiler, it is retro fittable if it does not, however if it hs an adjuster, the screw is located on the bottom of the saw between the cranckcase and the fuel tank, just below the sprocket, there will be an oil symbol and a - and + sign there, the pump is three position, for 13/15/18" bars.
Husky has pretty good exploded view diagrams on their website. I would try there to see if you can figure out how it gets removed. Here is their helpful website: http://www.husqvarna.com/us/homeowner/support/download-manuals/
Hello again Rudy.
Please reply below (Add Comments) with the serial number of your saw then I can investigate a little further.
You can reply even when the question is closed. I am not certain how but I get email notification of your reply when done correctly. If equipped the oiler adjustment is below the crankshaft on the clutch side. Look up from the bottom. On the side of my 359 is an icon of a link of chain with a drop of oil above it. The oiler adjustment is aft of that and can only be seen from the bottom of the saw. The manual I saw said 3 position only with CCW (3 - 18 to 20" bar) most oil. Forcing it beyond the stops causes a lot of problems. http://weborder.husqvarna.com/order_static/doc/HOUS/HOUS2007/HOUS2007_1150331-95.pdf
Is your serial number is between 07 18##### and 08 17#####?
Page 5 item 1 shows location of the serial number. Not all newer saws have an adjustable oiler. Please reply below.
