I bought a new 450 x chain saw this past march, How do you adjust the automatic oiler??


The owner's manual should disclose the adjustment detail. Set it so that the bar tip throws off a thin line of oil onto a piece of cardboard after a few moments of running at speed. Good luck!

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).

My Husqvarna 142 doesn't pump oil. In the parts list it seems there is a. a new pump, b. a worm gear, c. a pick-up?, d. a filter. How do I get the clutch/bearing assembly off to clean/ replace these parts?...


You are the only one that can determine what part or parts are defective (we cannot see the parts). If you are not comfortable making that determination a I recommend a local Stihl or Husky seller/mechanic.

The oiler and worm gear are behind the outboard clutch(often under sheet metal cover). This will help with clutch removal:

  1. Check the IPL for your saw to see if any special tools are needed.
  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 starter cord or nylon rope 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).

The bar oiler is not working. when it sits for about a week it will drain all the bar oil. The last time I used the saw the first tank of gas it oiled good after that it will not oil the bar. I removed the...


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:

Husqvarna 141 will not oil and when i had it serviced they replaced the oiler and it did not solve the problem.


Remove the chain and bar assembly. Start engine--should pump oil from oiler port where the bar fits on the engine side. If oil comes out, then possibly the bar-oiling passage in the bar itself is plugged with dirt or sawdust--blow clean with compressed air. If no oil comes out from the port, check the pickup tube inside the oil tank. Drain the oil into something and fish the pickup tube end out with a hooked wire. Replace if collapsed, cracked, or loose.
