Bar and Chain oil, available at Home Centers and Hardware stores. It is 30 weight non-detergent with additives to keep it on the bar and chain. It's less expensive than motor oil by the quart. HTH

Your response about the electric chain saw that must be oiled manually was about a self-oiling chain saw so it did not answer my question. How to oil the saw? Use an oil can to spread the oild across the...


Your chain saw is a manually oiled model which means YOU have to pump it.YOU do not pour oil on the chain. An auto oiler model works without you doing anything, the pump is run by the engine. A manual model, you pump the oiler The Chain saw has internal oil channels or holes to apply the oil directly under the chain and into the chain bar guide. Pouring oil on the guide or chain will NEVER lubricate the chain properly. Whomever gave you such an idea is just plain wrong. I sent you the link to the owner manual and gave you a diagram.

Where could i get an oil pump for the chain.


Sorry Lynda
I did not want to close this until you had replied. A clarification will still post (below), I will check for your input.
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) 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. If yes reassemble your saw. If no, continue with 2.
  2. 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 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. Please see the IPL to aid in oiler component identification. HTH

No clutch but I need the model, serial, and whether European to help further.

Mcculloch em300s electric chain saw stopped oiling the chain. I noticed the oil had all flowed out in storage shed and when I refilled it and used it I noticed the chain and bar were dry.


This is a little complicated so I’m going in small steps.
http://www.m-and-d.com/parts.html
Click “Illustrated Parts Diagrams ON LINE”
Click “Click Here for Parts Lookup”
Changes to “Select OEM” Window reads “Briggs & Stratton ▼” Click the arrow and select “McCulloch Power”
Click “Electric Chain Saws” The model number of your saw is probably on a tag affixed to the bottom. The tag also displays the serial number.
If it is a 300S the hyphen is the bar length.
I looked at the 300S-16 (same oiler parts as -14)
  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) Clean the saw’s oiler hole and channel. Start the saw and see if it oils when revved up. If yes reassemble your saw. If no, continue with 2.
  2. Item 15 has a filter on the bottom check it first, 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). If good I’d look closely at item 17. I can’t get enough detail from the IPL but that is the logical culprit.
Oil systems on all Mac Electrics appear pretty basic. Good Luck

Oiler does not work on Mac 3200 chain saw


I cannot find any 3200 series IPLs. Individual models can be found here:

If this is a Chinese Mac (MTD) they are very difficult to work on. Most saw shops will not repair one. GL

Can't get the chain oiler to work. Using standard bar oil.


You can always put some penentrating oil in the saw oil tube by the bar, spray it in with the plastic straw attatched. Sometimes this will clean things out. As far as the tube being un attatched,,,, taking case apart is usually the remedy - kinda takes a while... :) Hope this helps you, Rick.
