Question about Garden
There are a couple of things to check. Remove the bar and check that the small hole where the oil is fed into the bar is not plugged. The bar can be installed "up side down" so be sure the hole is clear on both sides of the bar. If you have an old hacksaw blade try cleaning the groove in the bar. Most of the time this will eliminate the problem.

SOURCE: The chain oil is not
Release the chain brake and remove the bar and chain. Clean the engine area where the bar fits up to, and start the engine--oil should ooze out of the side port there. If nothing, then the oil pump, oil line, or oil filter in the tank may have failed. If it oozes ok, then clean the drive end of the bar--especially the two small passages that run from the large holes out to the chain groove on each edge of the bar. Re-assemble everything, then run the saw bar-tip near some cardboard for several moments--it should throw off a thin line of oil. There should be an oil volume adjustment screw head under the case near the chain return area--turn CCW to increase flow. Hope this helps!

Fuel Line Replacement by SmallEng.com
Oil System Plugged.
Insert a blunted, hooked piece of wire through the oil filler hole and pull the hose in the oil tank out (clean or replace, difficult to determine serviceability). Work your way through the linkage 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 probably left handed thread). Please make extensive notes & some digital pictures will help during reassembly. GL

Best source I found for old Mac Parts. I've found parts here I could find no where else (complete Mac 110 oil pump and associated hoses, reasonably priced). It is a little tricky, their on line help is good too. HTH

Testimonial: "Thanks for the great information. It is hard to find repair info. I have 4 old chain saws that needed repairs. I will get them out and get them going"
If all you say is true and when revved up the saw oozes oil with the bar removed, then I suspect the bar is incompatible with the saw. Has the bar been replaced? The oiler holes in the bar must align with the channel in the saw. Oiler hole placement is part of the reason there are so many different part numbers for bars. The mount is only part of the requirement.
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

SOURCE: Oil feed to cutting bar
check that the part that turns the oil pump is in good condition, the oil pump gear isn't sticking and that the line from the pump to the bar isn't blocked cracked or broken
