Chain not getting oil

I have a old McCulloch 3516. The chain saw that is not getting oil. Is this a difficult repair? I can borrow my son's Husqvarna 141 but I prefer the McCulloch over the Pouland product.

Extremely difficult! If the oil pump or worm gear is defective it may be the most difficult saw to repair. This is the only saw I have seen with the oiler mounted behind the fly wheel.

Your basic model number is 600035. There are 11-, 21-, and 22- prefixes used with 600035s. There are also a ton of suffixes with the 600035s. I think the suffix is on your saw immediately after the basic model number somewhere (usually on bottom of older Macs along with the serial number. The dash of the serial on older Macs is the prefix). I must defer to you to find your exact IPL, here:
McCulloch IPLs
http://www.ordertree.com/modelinfo/McCulloch/139.59.html

I chose this one as an example "22-600035-58" for an IPL
http://www.ordertree.com/modelinfo/MCC/22-600035-58-Mac-3516-IPL-211229-01/139.22-600035-58-Mac-3516-IPL-211229-01.1.59.1.html
The "Powerhead Assembly" lists an oil pump (1) and a worm gear (10). These are the most common failure on most saws but Macs have many more hoses than most. There are oiler components on at least 2 different details. It appears the oil pump is on the starter side of the engine. and you may need to remove the fly wheel for access. I would examine every connection and perhaps try the "Kit Gear/Plunger Assembly" before trying to access the oil pump and gear.

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), if equipped with a sprocket nose ensure it rotates easily at least one complete revolution. 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. 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.

You can reply below with any questions. I hope you found this most helpful. Good Luck
Lou
If you opt to remove the fly wheel PLEASE reply to me first. I can probably save you a couple of headaches and may prevent component breakage.

What is the oil/gas ratio for a McColloch "Titan


40:1 is the ratio for modern saws so I expect it's the same for the older ones. Use good 2 stroke oil like Husqvarna or Stihl brands rather than the cheaper stuff you can buy at car service stations which don't really protect a saw.

The mix fuel mix is 40:1. Use Husqvarna 2 stroke oil not the cheap stuff on sale at car service stations. The chamber for oil is for chain oil which can be bought at most places that sell or hire machinery like chainsaws, lawnmowers etc.

Need to view gas line hook up. On mac3515 chainsaw


No 3515(35cc,15"bar)s a 3516 is provided.
A McCulloch Mac 3516 model model 21-600035-59. (may not be your saw):
http://www.ordertree.com/modelinfo/MCC/21-600035-59-Mac-3516-IPL-211318-01/139.21-600035-59-Mac-3516-IPL-211318-01.1.59.1.html
The IPL (exploded parts list) for your saw is the only detail for fuel line routing and it is sketchy at best; components are listed but may be on different illustrations.

If the above is not your saw, yours can be located here:

A typical fuel system and a couple of tips follow:

If properly plumbed your saw will run with the carburetor to primer hose capped off.

I have a MAC 3516 and need a replacement bar and chain. The original Chain and bar are not available. the saw runs good but need the primer bulb and chain bar and chain. Any ideas would be great.


Hello Eric, You can get an Oregon brand bar and chain that will work perfectly on your Mac 3516. I have this same chainsaw and keep a spare bar and chain, so I can quickly swap them out, should they get damaged, etc.

The Oregon bar and chain part numbers are as follows:

#100457 (Bar & chain combo pack)

You can also find these sold at most Home Depot, Lowe's and other hardware stores that carry chainsaws, as Oregon makes their replacement bar and chains to fit all the major brands available.

Unless your existing bar and chain are completely galled up, scored or bent/busted beyond repair, I would find a small engine repair shop or local hardware store that sharpens chainsaw cutting chains, (True Value and Ace do it in our area) and see if they can sharpen and true up the bar. The price for this is typically about 1/3 to 1/2 the price of a new chain and bar set, and worth having a spare around.

I also like having that extra aleady to use (sharp) chain, so when a neighbor borrows my saw and invariably lets the chainsaw go into the dirt (that'll dull the chain so fast!). I will always be able to use my saw, when I need to, without having to run out and get a replacement, or spend 15 minutes having to sharpen it by hand, etc.

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!
