SOURCE: Pouulan Pro 260 chain saw - installed brand new

thake the muffle off and look inside the hole at the piston.if you see any marks on the piston,the saw will never need to change the piston and cylinder assy.the cost is about $150.00 for the parts.that does not include any labor cost.most of the time it's not worth repairing.let me know if this helped or not...................................

SOURCE: how do I get to the oil pump?

You can find an IPL for your saw here:
"PP220 Gas Chain Saw Type ?" - 6 choices, the LE suffix is code for a Wild Thing.

I think you’ll find it behind the clutch and it appears to be outboard (chain drive between engine and clutch) view this:
R² Drive Link Outboard Clutch by

  1. Check the IPL for your saw to see if any special tools are needed.
  2. A length of starter cord or nylon rope may 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. It is probably a left handed thread (tighten it to loosen it).
    Let us know how it worked for you.
I see an oil vent listed, and no tank assembly. The housing is probably magnesium and split in two halves. I would look at those hard as a possible source of leaks too. GL & HTH

SOURCE: gas/oil ratio for fuel in a poulan pro 46cc engine

The standard mix for most chain saws is 40:1 that's about 3-1/4 oz per gallon.

Chain oiler does not seem to be putting out enough oil,what can i do to increase the flow?

This model does not have an adjustable oiler. If the ports are clean and the pickup is clean, you may need to replace the pump. This is generally an inexpensive repair.

My Poulan E300 Electric Chainsaw stop oiling the chain and bar

Hello JK; I am hesitant to answer this, these are all Poulan electric chainsaws that appear when the parts source is searched for Poulan Electric Chain Saws:
400E Poulan Pro Electric Saw
400EX Poulan Pro Electric Saw
ES400 Electric Saw
PP250E Electric Saw
PP300E Electric Saw

All are plumbed the same to my eye. I assume you cleaned and tested the oil pick-up within the tank. If everything you say is true if the pump is driven it should oil.
1. What causes the pump to pump? I cannot tell from the IPLs. If gas and not gear driven, an impulse line (pressure/vacuum) from the crankcase drives it. There can be no impulse line on an electric and I see no gear. Does it rotate to pump oil? What imparts the rotation?
2. What purpose does item 27 (pinion) serve? Is it supposed to drive the pump? Is it missing teeth?
3. What is the purpose of item 44 (check valve). If it is an oil tank vent, and not opening, you are creating a vacuum in the tank if the pump is operating. Loosen the oil cap and see if it oils. If yes replace the check valve.

I think Joe Schmoe is saying Poulan redesigned the oil system to eliminate all the hose couplings. It makes sense, one hose from oil pickup (filter on hose end in tank) to bar is much less likely to leak, also no restrictions for any particles in the hose to form a clot on. I see nothing on my research to support Poulan doing that. There are a couple of new models that I cannot find an IPL for so it is possible. I have headache JK. If this does not solve it is not because I did not give it my all. Please post back (below) with success or failure. If successful what was the cause. TIA

If you have more questions or need additional help please reply below and I will get back to you. Thank you for using FixYa and Good Luck. HTH
