Question about Garden
Mcculloch 3200cc oil pump behind the flywheel needs to be replaced. How do I safely remove the flywheel? I replaced the oil lines and pulled oil from the reservoir to the pump. I attempted to siphon oil from the oil whole after running a wire through the oil whole on the bar side of the saw with no success. I need an oil pump and advice on removing the fly wheel. Thanks GB

You need to disassemble the case to get to the fuel tank. Pull out the plug fitting and replace the internals with new factory grade parts.

Try your friendly neighborhood chainsaw seller/mechanic. Take a piece of the old hose with you.
Fuel Line Replacement
Routing runs from fuel tank to carburetor, (if equipped) through carburetor to primer bulb, bulb returns excess to fuel tank.

IT GOES IN THE HOLE OF THE SMALL FILTER
THERE IS ENOTHER SMALLER BALL WHITH SPIRG INSIDE THE METAL TUBE THAT HOUSES THE PISTON
BOTH OF THEM WORK AS ONE WAY VALVES

Operator Manuals for McCulloch are difficult to find and will not help with this problem unless you want a repair facility. You can try here:
Operators Manuals: are much more difficult. I have dialed this number many times (Contact Us - All McCulloch Products 1 (800) 521-8559) and have yet to get a satisfactory response. Please try this! If enough of us try they will fix it!
You provided no model number; this one was given in a 3200 fuel problem I answered earlier. An IPL for the model you provided follows (this is actually a 3214, I have never found a 3200):
It is the only 600032-32 here:
McCulloch IPLs (all)
The IPL (exploded parts list) for your saw is the only detail for the oil system is sketchy at best. Oiler components and part numbers are listed but may be on different illustrations. They are also beneficial with disassembly/reassembly:
There is a less detailed print here:
On this block of saws the oil pump is under the flywheel and there are many hoses. Please use the IPL to identify and locate oiler parts. I hope you find a burst hose. There are oil pump repair kits listed. Unless the pump has an obvious crack or hole I would not attempt to change it until I had exhausted all other possibilities.
This works for older MCs but MTD (this one) saws often deviate from the explanation. It will give you a little guidance if you try to locate a different IPL.
I know it is not plugged but this may also be helpful.
Oil System Plugged:
These are very difficult to work on, most saw shops will not attempt a repair. I hope the chainsaw Gods smile on your undertaking. Good Luck. If you have more questions or need additional help please reply below and I will get back to you. Thank you for using FixYa HTH
