Question about Garden
Take the bar and chain off, clean any sawdust and grime from where the bar meets the body of the chainsaw. Make sure the oil tank is full but don't reassemble yet. Start the chainsaw without the bar and watch to see if any oil is coming out of the little hole or slot above the bar bolts. Check that it isn't clogged with muck. If this bleeds oil then check the bar which has an oil hole that matches up with the oiler, this could be clogged. Blow out with compressed air, also run a piece of hacksaw blade around the groove where the chain sits in the bar to clear debris and blow out. Good luck.

THIS WORKED FOR ME....I have a 2014. I've had that problem for quite awhile. I finally decided to try to fix it. I took the bar and chain off, removed all the crud in there. Then I took a small air compressor and blew out the entire area so it was pretty clean. I started the saw at this point and gunned it some. The oil became noticible within a few seconds where it comes out at, above the outer chain bar bolt. Once I found the hole, I then drained the oil tank, and then using the air pump, blew out the hole from the blade area to the tank, leaving the oil cap OFF. Upon refilling the oil tank with a lighter oil (10 wt), I restarted the saw, and the flow was really coming. After the oil; tank empties, I'll start using the regular bar-and-chain oil again, but it's pretty heavy, even though it says it is 30 wt.

The IPL (exploded parts list) for your saw is the only detail for the oil system and is sketchy at best. Oiler components and part numbers are listed but may be on different illustrations. They are also beneficial with disassembly/reassembly.
It has an outboard clutch use this and the IPL as a guide for removal. R² Drive Link Outboard Clutch by Drivelink.blogspot.com

Remove the bar and chain. Start the engine and observe the oil delivery port in the side of the engine case. At a fairly fast speed, the oil should ooze out of the port. If little or nothing, check the pump, lines, and in-tank filter. If ok, clean the bar drive-end holes of sawdust and dirt, especially the small passages that go from the large holes out to the chain groove. Clean the entire groove and the outer end sprocket. Reassemble and test the oiling by running the bar tip at speed in front of a piece of cardboard--it should throw off a thin line of oil after several moments. Hope this helps!

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?
