    "tube in saw" How to check that, take it all apart?

  • Curt Whitney

    Assuming oil tube isn't clogged, and since it is a McCullough, my local saw dealer says parts are unavailable. Probably oiler itself. Is there no solution?

    To isolate the problem I would take the bar off first and run the saw to see if it tries to pump oil, if so you might have an obstruction in the holes and groove in the bar. If not I would wipe the area clean and see if you can see a blockage in the hole from the saw, also check to make sure that the tube in the saw has not come undone.

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.

Dear Sirs, I don't have a manual to look this


There are two holes in the end of the Bar, the oil comes though them from behind the bar and goes into the channel (oil passages) that goes around the bar, clean the small oil passages in the drive end of the bar that run out to the chain groove on each edge from the large holes.

My chain saw is doing the same thing. I have only used it about 5 hours since owning it, and it worked great last time I used it (year ago). I think maybe my pump is not working. Did you ever get your's working ? I was told to take the bar off and Start the engine and observe whether oil oozes out of the side port. If no oil comes out, then the oil pump, oil line, or oil tank filter may require service.

Can't seem to get my oiler to work properly. oil emerges when i run the saw with the bar removed, but chain is dry and hot when run put together.


Some saw manufactures design their oilers to only work with their bars. Are you running the mfg suggested or stock bar? Chain? Stihl Chain is designed to use 30% less oil because of oil groves cut into each drive link directed to the rivets. So if your running an aftermarket bar/chain, the oiling ports may not line up. Especially if it oils with no bar & chain

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

How do you adjust chain oiler,increase or decrease amount of oil


Did you get it Lowes? Most new homeowner class chainsaws have no oiler adjustment (bad idea! lots of problems). If it does there is a mention in the OM under or near bar maintenance.
Intermediate class saws often have a 3 position oiler. The professional grades have fully adjustable oilers.

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).

I have a Poulan model #358-356-332 chain saw. I think that it is about 10 years old. The bar tip appears to be too shallow for the chain depth. You see daylight between the chain and the tip. We have...


I think you have more than one problem.
1. I think the pitch of the bar and the chain you are using are different.
2. I think either you failed to bar add oil to the bar oil reservoir or your oiler is not working. Why you are burning up bars.
3. I think your Poulan saw says Craftsman (model will not cross).

See page 14 for how to check oiler operation.

Test as I suggest then post back (below) with what you find and we will continue. I will need clarification on the make and model of this saw to be much more help. If all else fails for the model provide the engine size in CCs. We are prohibited from contacting you directly. Sorry. HTH

455 chain saw does not seam to be oiling the chain enough,checked an cleaned oiler chain an bar ,i cant find my book but i know it can be adjusted but dont know how


Caution it is probably only a 3 position oiler, forcing it beyond either stop may cause failure. The 2009 om (may not be your saw) adjustment is on page 33 of the Operator's Manual (below).

Chain binds saw dies saw runs fine with out bar chain on clutch bearing? help poluan 3416 16 inch 34cc


Is your chain oiler working? If you're using saw a lot and the oiler isn't working properly the chain will get hot and bind up especially if the chain is too tight. Tighten the chain so that you can squeeze it in the center of the bar, with your second and third finger on the sides of your fingers (not a very strong grip) and you should be able to almost pull the chain out of the bar guide but not quite. Clean the oiler hole in your bar where the chain oiler injects oil into the bar. You can also run your saw without a bar and chain and see if the oiler is pushing oil out of the injector.

Is this a new saw? If yes please contact Husqvarna about a warranty (2 years) repair. I think you already performed part 1 below.

I've 7 chainsaws. 6 of them oil my bench if I forget to drain the oil tank.

You don't give us a model number not all saws have oiler adjustments. An IPL of your saw with oiler detail can be found here:

I have 3 older Poulan chain saws, XXV, 1800, and 2000, essentially identical saws. They all use a check valve from the crankcase to pressurize the chain oil reservoir. The check valve apparently uses an...


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.

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.
