Question about Poulan Chainsaws
How can I get it a part to work on it?
SOURCE: Poulan oiler don't work
Common problem with Poulan and Craftsman gas saws. Take off the chain and chain guide and clean out all the saw dust etc. Start saw without chain and look for port where there are signs of oil. If port is clear of sawdust, then it is likely the pump which is located behind the chain break assembly. you can get the diagram on Poulan website and the replacement pump will cost about $15 - $20 to replace yours.

Thanks, guys. Right, I do fill it partially now, but it's annoying. Oh
well, there is no simple way to restrict the line - I have disassembled
the unit and one would only hope the designers would think about a
simple device for adjusting oil flow, but there is none. Primitive,
since oil will flow at very different rates in cold and warm weather...

A Poulan "PP260 Gas Saw Type 6" IPL example follows (may not be your saw):
The IPL (exploded parts list) for your saw is the only detail for the oil system and detail is sketchy at best; components are listed but may be on different illustrations. They are very useful during disassembly/reassembly.
The oil pump detail is on the "Handle, Chassis & Bar Assembly" page.
Your saw has an outboard clutch, the oil pump is behind it. Use this as guide for clutch removal:

The dash number of your serial number is the type.

The oil filter needs to be blown out, as well as the bar and behind the bar as the feed is just an open canal on the saw side of the bar. On your model their may be a guard that needs to be removed to access where the pump assembly comes out.

Testimonial: "I assume the oil pump is located behind the sprocket. Having trouble getting sprocket loose probably need a special tool.... Took the plastic 90 out."
