SOURCE: my 18 " craftsman chainsaw will not oil the chain.

Take the bar off and clean the grove out with something like a small flat blade screwdriver.Make sure its open where it bolts on.It gets its oil through the bolt holes.If you have a way to blow the dirt out it helps.You can try running the saw without the bar on to see if its putting out any oil.If not you will have to get to the oil pump to see if its not bad.

SOURCE: digram of fuel lines for craftsman chainsaw model 358.350180

There are two lines inside the tank. The short line with no fuel filter on the end of it goes to the inlet, (suction) side of the primer bulb. The long line inside the tank, with the filter on the end goes directly to the fitting on the side of the carburetor. The line, inside the air box from the outlet side of the primer goes to the remaining fuel line fitting on the carburetor. (This is not my post)

On the poulan 42cc chainsw how do i adjust the flow of bar oil


To adjust the automatic oil flow, Turn the chainsaw upside down. Turn the screw marked with a "+" or "-" toward the "+" sign. If too much oil is present turn the screw toward the "-" sign. Repeat the oil test and adjust as necessary.

Describe your sears 18"


I put a new bar and chain on my craftsman 18" chainsaw because the chain keeps coming loose. I am still having the same problem, after running 10 seconds, the chain falls off.

Poulan PRO chainsaw -- oil is not getting to bar...what could be the problem?


You need to remove the bar and chain, clean out all the oil delivery holes in the bar, if no better drain the oil tank, fill with a suitable cleaning fluid and rinse out the tank, this will help to clean any dirt from the pick up filter, now try again, if still no better, you will have to remove the clutch and sprocket to gain acess to the oil pump itself

My saw doesn't burn chain oil


Many times the oiler routing holes get plugged with sawdust and dirt.
Pull off the cover and blow the oiling passage backwards with compressed air. You can use a can of dust off for this purpose.
Hold your saw over any clean oblect and check for oiling when you rev the saw after cleaning. The chain oil should splatter onto the cardboard or whatever if it is oiling.
Good luck,
Bob

The chain oiler quit working or is cloged and in not sure how to clean it or take it apart


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) Clean the saw’s oiler hole and channel. Start the saw and see if it oils when revved up. If yes reassemble your saw. If no, continue with 2.
  2. Insert a blunted, hooked piece of wire through the oil filler hole and pull the hose in the oil tank out (clean or replace, difficult to determine serviceability). 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. GL

If no oil after 1 probably an oil pump. Post the make, model, and serial numbers below the advertisements and we can provide some more guidance.
