An IPL (exploded parts list) for your saw can found here:
Serial number decode – for use with IPL
06 1500198
06 = year produced – 2006 (single digit before 2000)
15 = week produced - March
00198 = 198th unit produced by Husky that week

The manual and IPL list no way to change oiler output. Your manual (page 16) says
"If the chain lubrication system is still not working after
carrying out the above checks and associated measures
you should contact your servicing dealer." HTH
One question - are you using bar oil? It is thicker and stickier than most oils.

Unable to locate adjustment control for chain oiler model 345 husqvarna chainsaw

Not all 345 machines had an adjustable oiler, it is retro fittable if it does not, however if it hs an adjuster, the screw is located on the bottom of the saw between the cranckcase and the fuel tank, just below the sprocket, there will be an oil symbol and a - and + sign there, the pump is three position, for 13/15/18" bars.

Bar oil adjuster is located?

Not all 345 machines had a adjustable oiler as standard, they were retro fittable, if it has an adjustable pump there will be a screw head under the crankcase below the sprocket, you will see a + and - sign on the fuel tank with an oil drop.

I have a husqvarna 345 with an 18 inch bar and i keep burning the tip up. the oiler is working but its not putting enough oil to the bar. iv checked and found that the oiler is not adjustable and i cant...

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.

Husqvarna 345 bar oiler

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!

I cant get oil to the chain on my husqvarna 345.

You may have a problem with blockage in the oiler system somewhere. Try emptying out all of the bar oil and swishing some gas around in the bar oil tank to clean it out. This will work some of the time. Sometimes you have to take the oiler off and blow thru the lines into the tank,( make sure the oil fill cap is off) and blow into the oil tank out thru the line to clear out any debris . The adjustment for the oil pump should be on the bottom of the saw. Here is the manual with the procedure on page 32 of the manual. Hope that helps you.

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.

Husqvarna 345 power loss and vibrates

Replace the bar. Your bar has gone bad and that is why you are losing power. Bars are made by the chain saws to be completely oiled at all times. When the bar does not get oil the bar will start to warp and that is what will cause you lack of power when trying to due a top cut
