Question about Garden

McCulloch chainsaw Manual bar and chain oil dispenser is not working. Can't find hole where it should be coming out when I push the button, so I can't see if it is clogged. The button goes in ok, but no oil comes out even though the tank is full.

Trouble shoot the chain oil system

Hi Merv:
There will be a slot and connecting hole in the bar.
I would remove the bar, clean everything,including the slot in the bar and all holes, and with the bar off, push the oiler button. You should see where the oil comes out.
Re-install the bar so the oil transfer hole in the bar lines up with the source hole from the pump. Should work fine.

How to remove the chain on a Mcculloch MS1435? I can't get it over the 'clutch/sprocket' assembly. Do I need to remove the clutch?

There should be need to remove the clutch, push the bar back s far as it will go, un loop it off the nose of the bar, the bar will then come away making it easy to remove the chain.

1 Answer

Automatic oiler has never worked well even when saw was new, chain never gets enough oil. Should I use a lighter grade oil, or what else should I check?

Take the bar off the saw and check that the hole that the oil comes out hasn't become blocked with saw dust. It sometimes happens also that when you are filling the saw with oil, shavings and saw dust can get into the tank and this can block the pipes connecting the tank to the hole that the oil comes out. Although it isn't really recommended, I have used waste engine oil regularly for oiling the saw. This works ok as long as there aren't any lumps in it.

McCulloch 14" chain saw Model CS 38 EM It quit

Most often there is a dust-oil clog in the bottom of the bar slot which closes an oil passage between the bar slot and the hole drilled half way through the side of the bar. This provides a passage between the thin shim plate with the two bar bolt holes beside the bar and through to the oil tank or pump output. You can remove the bar and chain and punch out the blockage in the bar with a paper clip if the chain is removed. Make sure the wire can be pushed from the bar slot right through the side hole in the bar. A gravity feed chainsaw should leak right out into the slot of the shim plate, a button pumper should squirt out there with the bar removed. With a button pumper you may have a tiny check valve in the line or the push button to take apart, replace the spring or unstick the ball inside the check valve. This is why they went to the gravity feed oil system which just leaks in there and gets picked up by the bottom of the links as the chain races past the passage between the bar side hole and the chain slot.

Mcculloch 14" chainsaw no oil at chain??

Oil System Plugged.
  1. Remove the clutch cover, bar, and chain, clean the bar groove, any holes and passages on the rear of the bar (both sides, consider rotating the bar), if equipped with a sprocket nose ensure it rotates easily at least one complete revolution. Clean the saw oiler hole and channel. Insert a blunted, hooked piece of wire through the oil filler hole and pull the hose in the oil tank out. Pay attention to the screen or filter on the free end (clean or replace, difficult to determine serviceability). Start the saw and see if it oils when revved up. If yes reassemble your saw. If no, continue with 2.
  2. Work your way through the linkage cleaning and replacing any defective parts as you go. Carefully check the hoses for cracks especially at bends and connections. If equipped with an oil pump it is usually behind the clutch (clutch is a left handed thread). Please make extensive notes & some digital pictures will help during reassembly.
If it does not oil on completion of 1 on a McCulloch it is most often a plugged or disconnected hose.

There are in excess of 230 different McCulloch chainsaws. Oilers are often specific to one model. Please reply below with the model and serial number of yours so I can provide a more complete answer and an IPL. HTH

My McCulloch Electric Chainsaw model 450s_15 runs for a few minutes then quits. Does this saw have some type of thermal protector? If not is there any idea what may be causing this malfunction

Remove the bar and chain. Does the motor run and not quit? If not, inspect the motor for sawdust plugging the vents and check the brushes for condition and length. If runs ok, check the side port for oil coming out. If ok, clean all of the holes in the drive end of the bar including the two small holes that pass oil to the chain slot. Use compressed air if available. Also, clean the chain slot all around. Oil the sprocket tip if the bar has one. Adjust the chain so that it moves freely, but doesn't droop from the bar.

a fix that sometimes works is to add kerosene to oil tank where the oil would go normally and rev saw several times with out load holding blade in down position over a piece of dry card board so you can see the oil spraying on the piece of cardboard careful of moving chain
