Homelite chain saw not getting oil to bar and chain. model ut10734r

  • brstop Apr 21, 2009

    Thanks for answering my chainsaw oiling problem, I should have gone into more detail on the problem and what I had already done. The chainsaw is an automatic oiling system without a gear driven pump. AsI understand it as I took it apart and checked all the oil passages,Inotised aoil port that goes thru the carborator to the crankcase thru a reed valve. I've replace the heat dam and valve. Still no presure coming out of the crankcase to presurize the oil resavore. I'm at my whits end trying to figure out how this system worksand what next to do.

    Thank you I would appreciate any help I can get Bill

SOURCE: Can't get the chain oiler to work. Using standard bar oil.

You can always put some penentrating oil in the saw oil tube by the bar, spray it in with the plastic straw attatched. Sometimes this will clean things out. As far as the tube being un attatched,,,, taking case apart is usually the remedy - kinda takes a while... :) Hope this helps you, Rick.

SOURCE: older homelite super 2 has bar oil getting into cylinder

Sounds like you have a leak in your crankcase. On most ( or at least quite a few) saws the oil tank wall is shared with the crankcase housing. When you add bar oil it's running into the crankcase and then the cylinder. It may just need a new gasket, worst case is you have a hole in the housing.

SOURCE: I Have a poulan brand chain saw that the bar oiler

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), if equipped with a sprocket nose ensure it rotates easily at least one complete revolution. Clean the saw oiler hole and channel. Insert a blunted, hooked piece of wire through the oil filler hole and pull the hose in the oil tank out. Pay attention to the screen or filter on the free end (clean or replace, difficult to determine serviceability). Start the saw and see if it oils when revved up (oozes down side of saw). If yes reassemble your saw. If no, continue with 2.
  2. Work your way through the linkage (use IPL to identify components and locations) 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.
If it does not oil on completion of 1 it is most likely a bad oiler or worm gear (see IPL).

An example of a Poulan “PP220 Gas Chain Saw Type 5” IPL follows (may not be your saw):
http://www.ordertree.com/modelinfo/PWE/PP220-Gas-Chain-Saw-Type-5/75.PP220-Gas-Chain-Saw-Type-5.1.59.1.html

The IPL (exploded parts list) for your saw is the only detail for the oil system and is sketchy at best. Oiler components and part numbers are listed but may be on different illustrations. They are also beneficial with disassembly/reassembly.

It has an outboard clutch use this and the IPL as a guide for 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 7 an IPL for all Poulan chainsaws 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.

Chain oil tank full, feed channel behind guide plate clear, but no oil going to chain when running. This is a homelite 16.


There should be a oil adjusting screw on the bottom of your saw next to the bar beside the oil tank. Some models actually has the screw inside the tank. Drain the tank to make sure there isn't any debris clogging the hole where the oil feeds to the bar.

One way to check to see if the bar is oiling is:

1. Start the saw
2. Put a board, piece of cardboard or an uncolored old shirt in front of the bar
3. Press the trigger on the saw to allow the chain to circulate around the bar.
4. While keeping constant pressure on the trigger, look to see if there is a vertical line of oil on the piece of material you have placed on front of the bar. If the saw is oiling you will have a vertical line. If not adjust the oil set screw accordingly.

Problem mazanja verige


If you are asking about chain lubrication we use "Bar and Chain" oil (SAE30 with additives to make it adhere).
If your question is the fuel/oil ratio, it is 50:1 - 4 liters of premium fuel to 80 milliliters of quality 2-cycle oil.
If the saw is not oiling the bar and chain please reply below with model number (UT-something) below. Vso srečo.

I just received a Recon unit of the Homelite model ZR10580 chain saw. Is there a bar oiler adjustment on the model ZR10580? In my opinion the oil delivered is excessive - oil drips from the bar.


Homelite/Ryobi.com
https://www.gardnerinc.com/recons/disclaimer-lg.php - Agree; Choose “Product Line”; “Select OEM” & “Select Catalog” both to “Homelite Consumer Products”. A drop down list appears; self explanatory from here.
The numbers Homelite & Ryobi use don't match the numbers everyone posts. A careful inspection of your saw should find something that matches.
Once you find and open the IPL. If it has an oiler adjustment there will be an oiler adjustment screw listed. CW is usually less oil, make small adjustments of no more than ¼ turn. I suggest you contact them and check your Operator's Manual before making any adjustment. HTH

Homelite chain saw --first time user--do you mix oil and gas--two compartments--is the first compartment for bar oil


In the compartment closest to the chainsaw bar, you need to fill this with chain and bar oil. Any good name brand will work fine.

In the other compartment you need to add a mix of petrol and oil in the ratio specified for your saw. If unsure, 25:1 petrol/oil ratio should be ok.

The chain on my chain saw is slack.


The adjusting screw is usually found on the right side of the saw close to the bar, near the bottom. You will need to loosen the two nuts on the side that hold the bar tight. Loosen them until the bar lifts up and down (about 1/2") with your finger.

There should be a combination spark plug wrench and screwdriver that came with your saw. If not, use a slot screwdriverto tighten the chain while you hold the bar up with two fingers.

When adjusted properly, there should be no hanging slack in the chain when it is warm. It should rest just against the bar so that you can grasp it with gloves on and pull it toward you.

When it is tightened thusly, tighten the two side nuts while holding the bar up with two fingers. If you don't tighten the two nuts enough, it will loosen and the chain will have slack again shortly.

Remember that the hotter the chain gets, the looser it will be. Make sure your chains is getting plenty of bar oil. Never use regular motor oil.

I have a homelite chain saw that the bar oil is not dispenseing


May be oil port on saw clogged. Remove side cover, remove bar and chain. Remove giude plate if equipped. Check to see if small oil hole on saw is open and clean. You can start the saw with side cover removed to see if oil is coming from oil hole or not. If it is coming from oil hole when running the problem is most likely dirty bar .If bar is dirty check to see that groove is clean and the oil hole along the edge of bar is clean also. The hole is at same end of bar that attaches to saw.
