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...

SOURCE: I need to change an chain oiler pump in a poulan 260 pro chainsaw

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.
http://www.ordertree.com/modelinfo/PWE/PP260-Gas-Saw-Type-6/75.PP260-Gas-Saw-Type-6.1.59.1.html
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:
R² Drive Link Outboard Clutch by Drivelink.blogspot.com
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cdqkIuVNUQc

  1. Check the IPL for your saw to see if any special tools are needed. Poulan (Craftsman, Jonsered, Husky) clutch removal tool part number 530031112 if needed, is under $5 from many sources (look at the visible area between the weights if 2 small round sockets are visible you need the tool).
  2. There are metal piston stops available, when square (almost never) with the piston top these work well, if not square they have been known to punch through the piston. I suggest a length of nylon rope (nothing left behind) be used instead of the piston stop (retain 6" ± so you can remove it). Make sure the piston is near the top of the cylinder before feeding the cord or it can fall through the exhaust port and damage the piston as it rises.
  3. Everyone I have ever removed had a left handed thread (tighten it to loosen it).
If your saw is not a Type 6 the correct IPL can be found here:
Poulan.com
http://www.ordertree.com/modelinfo/POULAN-WEED-EATER/75.59.html
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."

Try to pour some gasoline only in the oiled tank and look if the gas comes out, if not the tank is clogged .

How does the oiler work on a poulan micro xxv


The oiler operates off the crankshaft under a cover behind the sprocket. Find the oil port near the back end of the guide bar where the oil pump injects the oil onto the chain. That port could be plugged. Your little Micro probably does not have an adjustable oiler but just in case invert the saw body and see if there is a + and - in the casting just under the sprocket. If so, moving the slotted adjustment towards the + increases oil flow.

Sometimes sawdust enters the tank when being filled and plugs up the inlet to the oil pump. Keep an old 1" paintbrush with your oil can so you can brush away the debris before opening the oil tank to fill while in the woods.

The first thing I would look for are cracks in the oiler lines. If the saw has a manual oiler try to see if that will get oil to the chain. Check to see if the cap on the oil tank has a plugged vent hole.

Brand new poulan pro 4620avx--bar oil is coming out of oiler but not getting onto chain


Hello. Thin your bar oil just a wee bit with some kerosene. If you have a gallon of bar oil add 1/4 cup of kerosene, stir it up and you will be fine. For starters also, directly apply some bar oil to the chain so that you are always using a well lubed chain. Joe

She is long of tooth. Some oiler parts are NLA. Item 17 on the "Power Unit" print is the actual oil pump. Do not mistreat it; do not blow it out with air; they are no longer available.

These oilers are called diaphragm oilers and work fairly well when the saw is new with great compression. As the saw wears out, the compression drops and a side effect is less oil pumped. The diaphragm is replaceable and it's not horribly expensive. Most good saws use a gear oiler - and even the newer Poulans use gear oilers. The gear oilers tend to have less problems and don't rely on engine compression.
