The one in the back is for gas and 2 stroke mix I belive I put The 2 cycle oil in the front it cranks but the chain is not moving fast threw rotation I pour the oil out but it smoke bad is that just the oil burning off. Thanks Andre crazy question but it happen
I think you are saying you put oil/fuel mix in the oil tank and bar oil in the fuel tank; discovered your mistake drained both tanks and refilled with the correct fluids. Now the saw runs but smokes excessively. I think it will do no lasting harm. After you have run a few tanks of the correct mix (50:1) through the saw. Remove and clean the muffler and spark arrestor, reinstall them. Inspect your plug if any evidence of fouling replace it. I think you will be cutting with this saw for years.
Yes the additional smoke is caused by a very oil rich mixture and should abate with each fresh tank of fuel. If the chain is not moving ensure the chain brake is not engaged.
If you have more questions or need additional help please reply below and I will get back to you. Good Luck. HTH
