Question about Poulan Pro 42CC 2 Cycle Chainsaw, 18"
When you remove the chain-drive side cover, bar and chain, you will find a small port in the side of the engine case where the bar fits to it. Clean the area well, and start the engine. It should ooze out oil from this port after a moment or two of running. Clean the holes and bar groove of sawdust--especially the two small holes that pass from the large oil holes out to the chain groove on each side of the drive end of the bar. Reinstall the chain (teeth cut toward you on the bottom run) and bar (turn it over from time to time to equalize the wear on the bar), then fit the cover over the bar--it helps to back off the adjustment screw several turns to ease re-assembly. Make sure the chain brake is released when doing this. With the mounting nut(s) finger tight, tighten the adjustment screw until the chain doesn't droop from the lower side of the bar, yet allows the chain to be turned by hand. Check the chain oiling by running the bar tip near a piece of cardboard--it should throw off a thin line of oil after several moments of running at speed. Hope this helps!
