Husqvarna 350 oil not getting to chain

I have a Husqvarna 350 it has been oiling the chain well, it did not drip oil from under the cylinder cover. While cutting old trees with rotten (like dirt) center, the chain (under the cylinder cover) got real dirty. I removed the cover-clutch drum-etc. I then removed the "oil pick up plate" and cleaned the entire area and pieces. I reassembled the saw and now very little oil gets onto the chain. I removed the cylinder cover and there was chain oil all over everything under the cover. I did not change the "oil flow adjustment". I took it apart and reassembled it twice with the same result. Please help. Thank you!

Take the bar and chain from the saw. Clean the two small ports that run from the large oil holes at the drive end of the bar out to the chain groove on each side. Clean the entire chain groove. Start the engine with these parts removed--oil should ooze out from the side port in the engine case with the engine running at med speed. If it doesn't, then there is trouble near the pump inside the case. When everything is back together, run the saw at full speed with the bar tip near a piece of cardboard--it should throw off a thin line of oil onto the cardboard after a few moments of running. Hope this helps!

Husqvarna bar oil leak? I have a Husqvarna 55 Rancher. After it has been sitting for a while, there is a puddle of bar oil underneath it. After removing the bar and chain, then the clutch and starter...

There is always going to be some oil under the saw, the pump is a constent loss system, oil onto the bar and chain and away, there is a lot of areas in the crankcase and chain brake for oil to get caught and drip out once the machine is set down, if the oil loss is not excesive i would say yjere is nothing wrong here.

My husqvarna automatic chain oiler doesn,t work...235 husqvarna any fixes?.

You may have gotten some saw dust particles inside the oil resevoir that got sucked into the delivery tube, thus clogging up the can drain the oil out of resevoir and run some seafoam thru the oil resevoir to see if you can get it unclogged

Husqvarna 235 is not oiling.Hole and groove on bar have been cleaned. The saw does drip oil with the bar off when running.All parts are clean but bar is not getting oil.Hope you can help,thanks.

With saw running and high speed hold saw close to a piece of wood and check for oiling. If still no oil, then use air pressure at hole in bar to clear.

Problems with the 350 husqvarna bar.

If all you say is true and when revved up the saw oozes oil with the bar removed, then I suspect the bar is incompatible with the saw. Has the bar been replaced? The oiler holes in the bar must align with the channel in the saw. Oiler hole placement is part of the reason there are so many different part numbers for bars. The mount is only part of the requirement.

Husqvarna 359 leaking chain oil

Remove the sprocket cover, bar, and chain. Find area where oil is discharged from case--is any part of the rubber seal damaged? Next, use compressed air to clean sawdust and dirt from oiler ports in rear of bar as well as the chain slot. Are you using motor oil instead of bar oil? Make sure there is nothing to prevent bar from making close contact with oiler port in case. Reassemble all parts and adjust chain tension.
