Cleaning the exhaust: on the saws I've worked with it was just to loosen two bolts at the front and then the exhaust is off the saw. Clean with brake cleaning fluid and blow with compressed air, let it dry before assembling. Don't forget to clean the fine mesh at the output side underneath the lid if present (i.e the spark arrestor).
Make sure to have your carb adjusted properly afterwards.

Check for plugged fuel filter and muffler. Check the fuel lines for decay or damage. Did you service the carburetor? Make sure the lower chamber diaphragm is not hard or cracked. Did you change the two jet settings? Put some fuel mix into the plug hole and pull it through--you should get a pop or two. If ok, then concentrate on the fuel problem. If no spark at the plug, check the ignition module gap to the flywheel magnets using a thin business card for a gauge. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: chain oil leaks out quickly
Remove the bar and chain. Clean the engine side case where the bar fits. Does the oil port itself leak or is it coming from the engine case? If from the case, it may be a loose or split line from the tank or it could be a cracked oil tank. If the tank is cracked, replace it as there is no glue or epoxy that can permanently repair it. If the leakage seems to have stopped, clean the drive end of the bar including the two small oil passages that run out to the chain groove. Re-assemble the bar and chain, then run the bar tip at speed near some cardboard for a few moments--it should throw off a thin line of oil. This saw should have an oil volume adjustment screw located near the chain return area on the back or underneath the case. Adjust CW to reduce the oil volume. Hope some of this helps!

The fuel hose is just pulled into the tank ( interference fit ) take a new hose, cut one end into a point, push this into the top of the tank as far as you can, now grab the end through the the fuel filler holr and pull the hose on through, pull enought through to allow the filter to move in the tak.
