Question about Stihl Garden

Oil is not getting to the chain with a stihl 012av chainsaw.

I have removed the chain, bar and sprocket. The oiler tube has some oil in it but oil is not pumping through the tube. I do not know how to get to the pump.

I'm almost sure you have to remove the oil tank and then the oiler

Make sure the bar is clean- rail and oil holes.
Sorry I don't know the Stihl 012 personally.
Most saws have the oil pump behind under the clutch, there is a sprocket that drives the oil pump- check that the sprocket is still in working condition? the pump can easily be removed and cleaned- air blown- clean out the oil lines, clean the oil filter (in the oil tank and clean the oil tank itself.
Hope this helps

Usually the issue with the bar not oiling the chain is that a few specks of sawdust plug's or partially plugs the the oilier port. Simply using a air hose and blowing it back will sometimes do the trick.

SOURCE: chainsaw chain oiler not working

There is probably a filter on the bottom of a hose within the oil tank. Go through the tank fill cap with a blunted rod. Move it slowly you should find the hose. Draw it gently toward the opening. You can probably find a new filter at a Husqvarna (parent company) dealer if you don't have a Jonsered dealer handy. Oil pump replacement is complicated. Any good chainsaw mechanic can replace it regardless of what saw they sell. Arboristsite dot com is a buch of chainsaw nuts (Eye r 1). They will give you better guidance. Please do a searh in the chainsaw forum before asking "how do I fix my saw", the answer has almost certainly been asked. Spike60 is a Jonsered dealer and is always helpful. HTH Lou

C. Both A and B. Is it the original bar? Has it ever worked with this bar? Yes continue, no reply below (first). Is there an oiler adjustment?
I know you did this, I have OCD. Good on you for checking.
Oil System Plugged:

  1. Remove the clutch cover, bar, and chain, clean the bar groove, any holes and passages on the rear of the bar (both sides, consider rotating the bar), if equipped with a sprocket nose ensure it rotates easily at least one complete revolution. Clean the saw oiler hole and channel. Insert a blunted, hooked piece of wire through the oil filler hole and pull the hose in the oil tank out. Pay attention to the screen or filter on the free end (clean or replace, difficult to determine serviceability). Start the saw and see if it oils when revved up (oozes down side of saw). If yes reassemble your saw. If no, continue with 2.
  2. Work your way through the linkage (use IPL to identify components and locations) cleaning and replacing any defective parts as you go. Carefully check the hoses for cracks especially at bends and connections. If equipped with an oil pump it is usually behind the clutch (clutch is a left handed thread). Please make extensive notes & some digital pictures will help during reassembly.
If it does not oil on completion of 1 it is most likely a bad oiler or worm gear (see IPL).

I did not see a match to your model. If you can find it the exploded parts list with disassembly/reassembly. Also provide part numbers, where components are located, very helpful.
Homelite/Ryobi.com (authorized parts supplier)
https://www.gardnerinc.com/recons/disclaimer-lg.php - Agree; Choose “Product Line”; “Select OEM” & “Select Catalog” both to “Homelite Consumer Products”. A drop down list appears; self explanatory from here.
The numbers Homelite & Ryobi use do not match the numbers everyone posts. A careful inspection of your saw should find something that matches.

The 3 models I found all had inboard clutches and the oil pump behind them. Start with this:
R² Drive Link Inboard Clutch by Drivelink.blogspot.com
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YUbSIHMSSP8
The C-clips tend to fly when being removed. Please wear eye protection and exercise care.

Continue like this with the remaining pieces.

R² Drive Link Outboard Clutch by Drivelink.blogspot.com
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cdqkIuVNUQc
  1. Check the IPL for your saw to see if any special tools are needed. Poulan (Craftsman, Jonsered, Husky) clutch removal tool part number 530031112 if needed, is under $5 from many sources (look at the visible area between the weights if 2 small round sockets are visible you need the tool).
  2. There are metal piston stops available, when square (almost never) with the piston top these work well, if not square they have been known to punch through the piston. I suggest a length of nylon rope (nothing left behind) 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. Everyone I have ever removed had a left handed thread (tighten it to loosen it).
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

How to stop sawdust from coming into the carburetor section and how to adjust the chain oiler. chain seems dry.


Check to ensure the oil opening on the side of the saw housing is not plugged as well as the matching oil groove in the guide bar first. Turn the saw upside down and see if there is a + and a - sign near the sprocket on the bottom. If so, turning towards the + increases flow. Most new small saws oilers are non-adjustable.

How to replace a oiler?


Wow, an 031 AV and its still running ?? You really got the life out of that one !!! The oiler is mounted on the outside of the block around the crankshaft behind the sprocket. Bar and chain, sprocket and another side cover must come off first. Make sure you blow everything clean with a air compressor during disassembly, because its gonna be gnarly under there.

There MAY be two different types available: one with adjustable oil flow and one without. I would NEVER go with one that is NON-adjustable. Once done, pre-lube your bar and chain with oil prior to starting the saw. This prevents a few hundred revolutions of the chain without lubrication before the new pump gets oil through the delivery port.

Closely monitor the oil tank during the first tank of fuel going through the saw and adjust the oiler toward the minus (-) just a tad bit if the oil tank runs dry BEFORE the gas tank.

The automatic chain oiler does not get oil to the chain. Yes, it has chain oil. The black tube to the top chamber at the bar, seems to be plugged and I cant get it off to clean it out. Thanks, Steve


I have never seen an automatic chain oiler that worked. Even new ones don't seem to work. Just pour a little used engine oil on the bar once in awhile like everyone else does.
In theory there is a small piston that rubs on an eccentric at the chain sprocket, and that sucks in oil and pushes it through a hole, into the center groove of the bar.
But if the piston is dry, it won't pump.
If the holes are clogged with sawdust, it won't work.

Have a stihl MS180 and it is not pumping any oil out of the hole and slot that makes contact with the bar. How do you remove the oil pump?


To remove the oil pump you need the following:
Assembly tool 1123 890 2200 Removing oil pump Puller 1130 893 1400 Installer 1130 893 1500
I would recommend trying to clean out the oiler first.
Please comment on this and tell us what type of oil you were using. There are rumors of wrong oil clogging or wearing the oilers. Was it used motor oil? Thanks Joe

I do not appear to be getting oil to my chain on my Stihl 028 chainsaw, can you advise me how to fix this ? I thought I may have the chain too tight but having used a chainsaw for many years, I thought it...


Hello Tom;
This is an OM for a Stihl 028. I did not see an oiler adjustment. It does have the "Master Control Lever" and from what little I know of Stihl this is a source of headaches if not used properly. If you are not familiar with it suggest you read everything the manual has to say about it.

If it does not oil on completion of 1 it is most likely a bad oiler or worm gear (see IPL). I has a gear driven oil pump but because it is Stihl and they claim proprietatry right you cannot find an IPL on line. You must also find a Stihl dealer for new OE parts.

Stihl 029 super oiler is not working


Pull off the clip and sprocket, then check the spring or wire behind the clutch. There is a notch in the sprocket hub that drives the spring when the hub is spinning. Sometimes the spring comes off the worm gear that it drives. If the spring is not there you need to remove the clutch to check it. It has left handed threads on it)

Flymo 2200 chain oil leak when machine is running


That chainsaw should leak oil off the bar. A small amount of oil flipping off the chain is how it is suppose to work. If it is a large amount of oil dripping from near the sprocket then you probably need to do some cleaning.

Remove the housing that covers that bar and sprocket. There are two plates on each side of the bar that set over the studs.They may be identical or slightly different depending on the saw but at least one of them will have a hole in it for the oiler. If you remove the bar and both plates you will see the oiler hole on the saw housing. This oiler injects oil through the plate and into a small hole in the bar where the chain picks it up and carries it around the saw. If this hole becomes plugged with sawdust it will keep your saw from oiling the bar proplerly. This hole should be cleaned out periodically. It's not a bad idea to remove the whole chain periodically and clean the chain guide all the way around the bar and get any sawdust buildup out so the oil can flow better.

Husqvarna 359 leaking chain oil


Remove the sprocket cover, bar, and chain. Find area where oil is discharged from case--is any part of the rubber seal damaged? Next, use compressed air to clean sawdust and dirt from oiler ports in rear of bar as well as the chain slot. Are you using motor oil instead of bar oil? Make sure there is nothing to prevent bar from making close contact with oiler port in case. Reassemble all parts and adjust chain tension.
