Chainsaw chain keeps getting tighter when using?

this is a sure sign of chain overheating , due to not enough oil to bar , this will eventually cause bar to wear down and chain to not stay on

ck your oil pump and oil tank for proper operation

Can the chain oiler be adjusted on a 141?

No adjustment possible.

But that can be good news when you got good oil as you can run a longer bar and chain up to 20" The shorter the bar the more oil present on the chain and bar during operation

Chain oil leakage

If its leaking straight out then its not a problem with the pump. The problem lies in the fact that its not making it to the pump, hence the leak. Now depending on the model the pump is often linked to the oil line via a little gromet. Check these parts all link up correctly and nothing has got damaged.

What is the recommended oil/fuel mix for Husqvarna 136 chain saw please?

40:1 is the recommended mixture for husqvarna chainsaws. Use husqvarna 2 stroke oil rather than the cheap types you get at car service stations as they will not protect your saw like the good quality oil.

How do you adjust the oiler on a husqvarna 268 xp chainsaw

use the control screw on the oil pump

it is located on the top left side of the oil pump casing to the left of the sprocket with the chain and bar off

turn it anti clockwise the check oil output
( no chain and bar on ) if still not right try the other direction
and retry if still not putting out enough oil

may need to clean tank and pickup filter
check pump driver and drum , check oil oulet line
check oil pump itself - it could be worn or air is getting in on the oil inlet side and it not drawing oil

to get these pumps out remove clutch and drum , remove pump drinver
undo 4 x screws and remove pump assy plate

here is web site for parts

go to oil pump clutch you will see parts relationship

cheers hope it helps

Husqvarna chainsaw 440e - enough chain lube?

That seems low to me. Page 15 in your manual is the only oil discussion I found. Usually there is an oil pump adjustment reference somewhere. I didn't see one beyond return it for service on page 15. Are the chain and bar hot after cutting a while? I recommend you not get a longer bar without an oiler adjustment. I think the hand of the EPA has been here.

An IPL (exploded parts list) for a 440 can be found here:
There is no oiler adjuster listed. HTH
Might be a good idea to copy the IPL,

Bar oiling problem

Just a thought: Is it cold where you are? At this saw mill where it is my job to keep chain saws running, learned years ago that you cannot use "bar oil" in winter. Need thinner oil, like motor oil. ....preferably a "non-detergent" motor oil, plain 30-weight is OK, HD30W will work, but the HD part causes the chain to stretch more so than standard bar oil. The bar oil literally is so thick in cold that it stripped the worm gear out of a Poulan Pro oil pump (plastic gear, anyways, wasn't much to begin with.) But thought you may want to try thinner oil, if it is cold where you are. Oh yea we also have 2-Husqvarna 359's with 20-inch bar, and use thinner oil in winter. Our Husqvarnas have an oil adjuster located on bottom, on clutch side. Straight slot screw adjustment.
