Problem with oil cap

I have had the oil cap that is pressed to pump oil onto the chain fall apart on me with part of it going into the oil reservoir. Where can I get a replacement cap?

    I have a similar problem with the 16" 3.0 HP Remington: The plastic threads wouldn't seat, almost as if stripped. I'd tighten until nearly sealed, and then the thread would slip.
    I have a replacement PN 117831-01, but I can't find any place that sells it. A lot of "NLA" on websites.
    If anyone would like the rest of this POC, let me know. Without the oiling chamber, this thing is worthless. I've tried manual oiling while cutting, but that is way too cumbersome.

My Poulan Pro chain saw (model # PP4620 AVHD) doesot move B&C oil from the oil reservoir to the chain. How can I repair this?

If the ports where the oil comes out aren't clogged, you will have to order a oil pump and then take apart the saw from right underneath the bar. The oil pump is run by a worm gear that strips easily.

I have a new Poutran 14 inch electric chainsaw that is manually oiled. Directions do not tell how to oil blade manually. How? I am a first-time user.

Here is a link to the manual with photos click here

The oil goes in the reservoir on the top of the handle. The oil cap is also the top of the pump. You push down on the oil cap with your thumb and oil will go to the chain bar. One or two pumps is all that is needed with each cut or every 2-3 minutes. You will see the oil come out at the back of the bar. (#15 below) Do not cut without oiling the chain or you will wear out the chain and the bar.rohdd_1.jpg

I have a Remington 14' Limb n' Trim electric chainsaw. There is an oil reservoir (I think - it has a little rubber cap) and I am not sure if it is for motor oil. If it is, what type of oil should I use?


The reservoir is for bar chain oil, which all chain saws require to allow the chain to operate smoothly and reduce heat build-up from friction.

Hope this helps.

I have a Mcculloch electric chain saw model 235 for which is not pumping oil onto the chain. Can you please advise where I can purchase a new oil pump Regards Darryl.

This is a full strip, and split side covers to get to the pump, this may well be a job for the local repair agent, having been apart it should then be PAT tested to ensure the double insulation it still good.

What kind of oil is required for the chain and is the oil inserted in the resevoir where the cap is located? If so, does the chain automatically oil itself?

There should be a filler cap in the front of the saw, it uses Bar and chain oil, I use two stroke oil, it is thinner but works great, only replaced one bar in twenty years, sometimes I mix it with chain oil, and most new saws oil themselves automatically, keep the tip out of the sand and dirt and make sure it doesn't turn blue from heat, then you will know it is not oiling itself. Sometimes I pour oil directly on the chain to get it going, hope this helps.

Poulan Pro Chain Saw Bar Chain Oiler Stopped Flowing

The filter can usually be caught with a hooked wire and drawn up far enough to deal with the filter. Oil filters are not prone to plugging unless the oil used is contaminated. If you run the engine without the bar and chain attached, oil should ooze out of the engine side port. If nothing, suspect problems with the oil pump. Some saws use a plastic gear in the pump and can strip the teeth of the gear. You should find it located behind the clutch assembly. Once you have oil flowing from the engine, clean the bar drive-end oil ports that go from the large holes out to the chain groove on each side. Finally, run the bar tip near some cardboard--it should throw off a thin line of oil. I have no idea what the plastic tube might be (a manual pumper perhaps?). Hope this helps!

How do you prime the oil pump after rebuild

The oil pump drive is off the intermediate shaft and that is driven by the timing chains. Unless you want to take apart the chains and spin the int shaft itself, there isn' t a good way to prime the motor.
Or just try this:
Just disconnect the bulkhead plug just behind the coil pack, you know the big round thing with all the wires. Crank the engine over a few times, 10-20, reconnect the plug and start the engine.
Or this:
Look on back of block there is a metal cap held on by two bolts. Take that cap off and pull out the top gear then find a socket that fits the top of the oil pump driveshaft. Put it on a power drill with a long extension stick it in the hole onto the driveshaft and spin it, cover top of whole around the extension with a rag so it doesnt spill. This will prime the whole motor, if you do it with head open you can see the oil come up through the lifters

Bar and chain oil is'nt dispensing onto the bar and chain

Its probably the line going to the hole by the bar, or maybe oil tank is plugged up at the outlet. If it were mine, i would take the thing apart & clean the tank, etc, but you might get something like carburator cleaner with the little straw (or WD40 should do) and stick the plastic straw down into the oil hole to try to clean it out. That might work without disassemble. Very low air pressure might also work. The oil cap should be off in any event, and the tank drained.
Doesn't have much to do with your chain being dull, usually chain not sharpened right, like incorrect angle, not having rakers cut down properly and the like. Reminds me, I have 2 saws that i need to sharpen before next week. hope this helps, Rick
