PCN 4545 Chainsaw I unfortunately used unleaded petrol instead of 2 stroke, now can not get saw to start, is it game over for carberette?


Hi, it won't affect the carby which I'm afraid is the only good news. It will need a new piston and probably a cylinder. Depending on the price of these parts to suit your model it may not be worth repairing. Sorry Phil.

Where are the oiling ponts to the bar to the ryobi 16 inch petrol chainsaw?


Hi
It's Lisa?
On an electric chainsaw there usually aren't what you would call oiling points.Somewhere,probably on the rear or one side of the case will be a bulb.It's also the screw on cap for the oil reservoir.
You fill that up with chainsaw bar oil,and as you use the saw every few minutes push the bulb down 2-3 times and it applies oil to the chain and gear in the case.The chain transfers the oil to the bar.
If this helps,would you rate my post please?
Thanks Bob
By the way,if you give me your model number I can look for a manual somewhere.No promises though,Ryobi likes to sell their manuals rather than download them.

Hello Tom, Here's a link to the Ryobi US web site with a free downloadable copy of the manuals for bothe the Ryobi electric chainsaw and a copy of the manual for the 18 Volt Battery versions

18Volt Battery Chainsaw
http://www.ryobitools.com/product_manual/file_url/254/P540_P540A_P540B_eng.pdf

I included both, just in case you have a corded version too, since sometimes the Fixya site provides "fill in" information for askers.

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Internal gear slipping ,seems like rart of gear


you may be able to fix your problem by tightening up the chain a bit more. other wise, you may have to have that gear replaced because as you indicate it may have had it's teeth worn down. i would begin by tightening the chain.
