The following is applicable to a Poulan PP3218Anything (doubtful it matters). The "Type" may be important so I must defer to you to ensure applicability.
IPL example (PP4218 Gas Saw Type 2):
http://www.ordertree.com/modelinfo/PWE/PP4218-Gas-Saw-Type-2/75.PP4218-Gas-Saw-Type-2.1.59.1.html
Oiler components are on the "Handle, Chassis & Bar Assembly" print.

All Poulan IPLs:
Poulan.com
http://www.ordertree.com/modelinfo/POULAN-WEED-EATER/75.59.html
The dash number of your serial number is the type.

It has an inboard clutch both videos apply for complete removal (oil pump behind the clutch):

The C-clips tend to fly when being removed. Please wear eye protection and exercise care.

  1. Check the IPL for your saw to see if any special tools are needed. Poulan (Craftsman, Jonsered, Husky) clutch removal tool part number 530031112 if needed, is under $5 from many sources (look at the visible area between the weights if 2 small round sockets are visible you need the tool).
  2. There are metal piston stops available, when square (almost never) with the piston top these work well, if not square they have been known to punch through the piston. I suggest a length of nylon rope (nothing left behind) be used instead of the piston stop (retain 6" ± so you can remove it). Make sure the piston is near the top of the cylinder before feeding the cord or it can fall through the exhaust port and damage the piston as it rises.
  3. Everyone I have ever removed had a left handed thread (tighten it to loosen it).
Use the IPL as a guide for disassembly. Good luck with your project. If you have unanswered questions please reply below and I will get back to you. I hope you found this most helpful.

2002 bmw 530 I oil pump located


Your oil pump is located inside the oil pan but is part of the chain assembly. The first picture is with the oil pan removed and the engine upside down (the red arrow) the second is right side up red arrow pointing to the oil pump. That gear with the chain on it is left handed thread when removing and installing. Hope this helps....

I have a rancher 455 and it's not suppling enough oil to the bar. Is there an adjustment for this?


The 455 has a 3 position adjustable oil pump, the adjuster screw is up under the crankcase, sprocket side, you need a flat blade screw driver.

Not pumping oil to chain, bought a new pump and oil pickup but I`m not sure where the oil pump is located and what I have to disassemble to get to it.


Most oil pumps are situated behind the clutch and sprocket, these will need to be removed before you can acsess the old pump, if it has an inboard sprocket you will need to remove the clutch first, these are a left hand thread and just spun onto the crankshaft, they need to be jarred off against the compression of the saw, you may need a special tool if there is no nut on the outside of the clutch, this tool fits most Poulon clutches 530035560, once removed it is a fairly straight forward job to change the pump.

How do you adjust the oiler on a husqvarna 268 xp chainsaw


use the control screw on the oil pump

it is located on the top left side of the oil pump casing to the left of the sprocket with the chain and bar off

turn it anti clockwise the check oil output
( no chain and bar on ) if still not right try the other direction
and retry if still not putting out enough oil

may need to clean tank and pickup filter
check pump driver and drum , check oil oulet line
check oil pump itself - it could be worn or air is getting in on the oil inlet side and it not drawing oil

to get these pumps out remove clutch and drum , remove pump drinver
undo 4 x screws and remove pump assy plate

here is web site for parts
