this is a common problem and requires replacement of the pump. remove the bar and chain, the pump comes loose with a few screws. under it you'll see the filter which could be clogged, but not usually as contaminants are not likely to enter the tank. Small engine shops can order the new pump for you, hope this helps

I wasn't able to find your IPL with what you provided. Somewhere (probably bottom) should be a black and yellow tag with the serial and model numbers. The model number on that tag is the key to your IPL. If you get that far and hit a dead end with parts repost with the correct model number and your best guess at what is defective. I've had great luck finding Mac parts for my saws.

Your basic model number is 600035. There are 11-, 21-, and 22- prefixes used with 600035s. There are also a ton of suffixes with the 600035s. I think the suffix is on your saw immediately after the basic model number somewhere (usually on bottom of older Macs along with the serial number. The dash of the serial on older Macs is the prefix). I must defer to you to find your exact IPL, here:
I chose this one as an example "22-600035-58" for an IPL
The "Powerhead Assembly" lists an oil pump (1) and a worm gear (10). These are the most common failure on most saws but Macs have many more hoses than most. There are oiler components on at least 2 different details. It sounds as though you have done most of 1. Continue with 2. It appears the oil pump is on the starter side of the engine. and you may need to remove the fly wheel for access. I would examine every connection and perhaps try the "Kit Gear/Plunger Assembly" before trying to access the oil pump and gear.

Good on you for what attempted already. I looked at the print and it appears there is a worm gear (item 50) and a driven pump (item 61) behind the clutch. I suspect one of the 2 has failed. I know you have done most of this already But does it ooze with the bar off?

40:1 should work well. Be sure to use a modern synthetic saw oil and fresh fuel--mix in it's own can. Be sure to shake the can thoroughly just before filling the saw each time. Good luck!
