Go to m-and-d.com then parts diagram then illustrated parts online then parts look up then select oem poulan then poulan then saw then look at list of models you will find 3400. Have worked on one or two of the 3400 and they seem to be a fairly good saw for home use.

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.

What you request to the best of my knowledge does not exist. You may find this helpful. Had you provided a model and serial number it would have been more helpful.
Typical fuel system and couple of suggestions:

The IPL for you saw can be found here:
The IPL (exploded parts list) for your saw is the only detail for fuel line routing and it is sketchy at best; components are listed but may be on different illustrations.

The dash number of your serial number is the type.

If I can be of further assistance you can reply below. I hope you found this most helpful.

If looking for parts your OM is of little value. You can find an IPL (exploded parts list) here (only one PP255 listed):
http://www.ordertree.com/modelinfo/PWE/PP255-Gas-Saw/75.PP255-Gas-Saw.1.59.1.html
Rear vibration (isolation spring)s appear to be item 5 or 59 on the "Exterior Assembly" print.

Poulan replacement OM.

There is contact us number in the OM if you want to contact Poulan. HTH

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.

Do you have an owners amnual for a 1983 Poulan Countervibe 3400 chainsaw?


Follow this LINK. If it doesn't work, let me know. I know it says Husqvarna, but that is because Husqvarna owns Poulan, but this is a poulan manual.

Poulan Countervibe 3400 will not start


In all of those years, the fuel and oil lines will have deteriorated as well as the rubber components in the carburetor. The fuel filter in the tank is probably also plugged. Remove the spark plug and check for spark--it should be blue and snappy. Check the condition of the primer bulb--it should be soft without holes or cracks. Try some fuel in the cylinder head and reinstall the plug. It should pop a few times if in firing condition. Replace the air cleaner and check the muffler for plugging. Pretty much a major tune up! Hope this helps!

Oiler on saw not pushing oil as fast as gas is there an ajustment screw or is it automatic and just needs to be cleaned


Your Operator's Manual does not address any oiler adjustment; an IPL for for your saw lists no oil adjustment screw.

Given the above I would conclude your saw has no operator adjustable oiler. If you think oil output is inadequate contact Poulan here:

The dash number of your serial number is the type.

A shorter bar will oil better. with no adjuster I recommend you not go longer. If the bar is getting hot make Poulan repair it under warranty!!!

I have a Poulan Pro 380 that is leaking bar oil.I can fill it with oil and it will leak out during the night.


I have 7 chainsaws. 6 of them if I forget to drain the oil reservoir will oil the surface of what they are sitting on. What you are seeing is normal.

IMO; use of the oiler creates a siphon. Any oil left in the tank will continue to siphon until the reservoir is empty. I could be wrong, I have been before.

Draining the tank works, nothing else I've tried does. HTH

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.
