Question about Husqvarna Garden

1 Answer

Husqvarna 385 bar chain oil adjustment, I see the hole for the adjustment but all I see is a pin across the hole and some sort of gear underneath. I dont see anything that can be adjusted.The bar does not get enough oil. I see oil coming out of the hole for the bar but it is just a little bit not enough to keep the chain lubricated.

At the end of the bar there's a small hole. Every time you fill the oil you should also put some oil into that hole and turn the chain so it spreads into the bearing. The chain oil is not intended to be enough for that bearing. I hope that will solve your problem.

Have 455 with oiling problem. Replaced oil pump and pinion gear. Saw is oiling with no bar on saw. Install bar and chain and oil drips from bottom of saw but none getting to bar and chain. What do I need...

Remove the bar and chain again, and check the two small oil passages that run out to the chain groove on either edge of the bar for plugging--they commonly fill with sawdust and dirt. Clean the entire chain groove, then reinstall the bar and chain. Make sure the bar fits up to the engine case tightly and that the chain adjustment 'tang' drops into one of the large holes in the bar end. There is usually a rubber seal on the engine case side where the oil oozes out--make sure it is intact and in place. Hope this helps!

Husqvarna chain saw 385 xp chain or bar not getting oil at all

check bar oil holes,
check oil tank pickup filter - should be clear, clean oil tank

remove drum and clutch, check drum and check oil pump driver arms ( could have worn or broken off and drum is not driving it around ,

check the worm part of the pump driver as well ,
remove pump oil pickup lines and outlet lines , check that both lines are clear and that the pump is not all bound up / stiff or damaged if everything else is good

i would replace the pump and reassemble , tighten clutch anti-clockwise ( clockwise to loosen it ) make sure drum cut out engages oil pump driver arms

as a rule if replace pump also replace pump driver , they are matched

here is web site for parts

slect your year from list and open up

cheers hope it helps

Husqvarna 272 xp, setting for setting screw for oiler

To check for proper oiling, run the saw at speed with the tip of the bar near a piece of cardboard--it should throw off a thin line of oil after several moments of running. Adjust the oil adjust screw CCW for more oil. The screw is usually in the lower front or underneath the engine. Remove the bar and chain first before adjusting anything and check the oil passages located in the drive end of the bar for plugging--especially the two small passages that go from the large oil holes out to the chain groove on both sides. Start the engine without the bar and chain--look at the oil port where the bar mounts next to the engine. It should ooze out oil with the engine running fast. If nothing at all, the pump, oil lines, and oil filter in the tank should be checked. When everything seems to be working, then adjust oil flow for best operation. Hope this helps!

How to adjust chain and bar oiler flow on a jonsered 49 sp chainsaw

The chain should be adjusted so that the chain can be pulled by hand fairly easily, but doesn't droop from the bar underneath. Oil flow should be set so that a running engine (chain moving fairly fast) will send a thin line of oil off of the tip of the bar (onto a piece of cardboard) with a few moments of running. Hope this helps!

Where is the bar oil adjusted from on husqvarna 345

Turn the Hus 345 chain saw upside down, you may see a little Icon of a oil droplet and a + - arrow by the chain. THe adjustment screw is not pictured in any of the standard user manuals,. but it is a small black slot headed screw over a rectangale metal tab by the chain. I believe if you turn it counter-clockwise, it will give you more oil,, It did for me. If you have the bar off, you can start the saw and see it come out the hole, that would verify your oil pump is working. Make sure the holes on the bar are clean also. running the saw at a fast idle for 1 min should oil the chain well enouth that it starts spraying off the end of the bar when you gun the engine.

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.
