SOURCE: chain oiler

Depends on the vintage, turn the saw upside down and you can see a screw to turn, 3 settings, right under the clutch and shaft. use a screw driver if it is adjustable. I like to keep mine set on high, oil is cheaper that new chains and bars. Use a bar oil, not old used motor oil.

My Husky 36 did this. The oil pump drive gear was stripped and had to be replace. It's located under the flywheel/sprocket so you have to pull that. I couldn't find info on how to do that so had a local shop repair it for $70! Parts are cheap, labor is not.

SOURCE: how do adjust the oiler on the older husqvarna 61 rancher

I have a 1981 model, it has an adjusting screw under the clutch assy. The screw is visibile (and probably accessible) without removing the clutch. It is a slotted screw with the numbers 1-4 around it. It changes the length of the stroke of the pump (though not by much). Mine is putting out too little oil.

SOURCE: husqvarna 340 oiler not working

Hello again Rudy.
Please reply below (Add Comments) with the serial number of your saw then I can investigate a little further.
You can reply even when the question is closed. I am not certain how but I get email notification of your reply when done correctly. If equipped the oiler adjustment is below the crankshaft on the clutch side. Look up from the bottom. On the side of my 359 is an icon of a link of chain with a drop of oil above it. The oiler adjustment is aft of that and can only be seen from the bottom of the saw. The manual I saw said 3 position only with CCW (3 - 18 to 20" bar) most oil. Forcing it beyond the stops causes a lot of problems.

Can the chain oiler be adjusted on a 141?


No adjustment possible.

But that can be good news when you got good oil as you can run a longer bar and chain up to 20" The shorter the bar the more oil present on the chain and bar during operation

HOW AND WHERE TO ADJUST THE OILER ON THE 240 HUSQVARNA


The Husqvarna 240 does not have an adjustable oiler. Always use good quality bar and chain lube, never motor oil.

Unable to locate adjustment control for chain oiler model 345 husqvarna chainsaw


Not all 345 machines had an adjustable oiler, it is retro fittable if it does not, however if it hs an adjuster, the screw is located on the bottom of the saw between the cranckcase and the fuel tank, just below the sprocket, there will be an oil symbol and a - and + sign there, the pump is three position, for 13/15/18" bars.

How do you make the chain oiler spit out more oil? Its a husqvarna 450.


There is an oil-volume adjustment screw located near the chain return area either in back, or just under the case. Turn it CCW to increase volume. Hope this helps!

Husqvarna chain saw oiler problem


I fear you are correct about the oiler problem. I see a lot of oiler problems on these saws. Sooner or later Husky will have to address it. Ask the dealer about modifying your oiler; the 350 has an adjustable and might fit 1 or both of these saws. I think Husky needs to admit the nonadjustable is a mistake, and come up with a fix.

If you want to do some research start with the IPLs here:
HusqvarnaUSA.com
http://www.husqvarna.com/us/homeowner/support/download-manuals/
Enter the 3 digit model number (no XPs, Es, just the numbers)
Serial number decode – useful when downloading IPLs and Manuals
06 1500198
06 = year produced – 2006 (single digit before 2000)
15 = week produced - March
00198 = 198th unit Husky produced that week
Please post back (below) with what happens at the dealer. Take your buddy and his saw with you! Good Luck. HTH

If Husky starts modifying all these with 350 oilers I want compensation...LOL

Husqvarna chainsaw 440e - enough chain lube?


That seems low to me. Page 15 in your manual is the only oil discussion I found. Usually there is an oil pump adjustment reference somewhere. I didn't see one beyond return it for service on page 15. Are the chain and bar hot after cutting a while? I recommend you not get a longer bar without an oiler adjustment. I think the hand of the EPA has been here.

An IPL (exploded parts list) for a 440 can be found here:
http://weborder.husqvarna.com/order_static/doc/USA/2009/I09000/I0901018.pdf
There is no oiler adjuster listed. HTH

Might be a good idea to copy the IPL,

Husqvarna 359 leaking chain oil


Remove the sprocket cover, bar, and chain. Find area where oil is discharged from case--is any part of the rubber seal damaged? Next, use compressed air to clean sawdust and dirt from oiler ports in rear of bar as well as the chain slot. Are you using motor oil instead of bar oil? Make sure there is nothing to prevent bar from making close contact with oiler port in case. Reassemble all parts and adjust chain tension.
