First, deactivate the chain brake, back-off the chain adjuster, then remove the bar and chain. Run the engine at speed for a moment or two--the oil should ooze out of the engine side port. If the oil quantity seems about right, then clean the drive end of the bar oil-passages including the two small passages that go out to the chain groove on each side. Clean the chain groove and check the sprocket on the far end (if equipped). Reassemble the bar and chain, then start and run the engine at speed for several moments with the bar tip near a piece of cardboard--it should throw off a thin line of oil onto the cardboard. Check the owner's manual for location of any oil-volume adjustment if needed.

Can i use any 2 stroke oil in my husqvana


Yes, as long as it is a good quality oil. Some manufacturers recommend less oil in the fuel if you use their brand of oil, but using a branded make will not be detrimental unless it is a cheap make. Just watch te amount of smoke coming from the exhaust, it should not be excessive but should also just be visible in the sunlight.

Excessive oil from the chain oiler. oil resevoir is empty and fuel is still 3/4 full. Saw is two weeks old. Oil sprays off the bar.


What kind of oil did you put in there?? The bar and chain oil is so thick, i can't see it slinging anywhere, you must have used 2 stroke in there. It's OK, That is all I use in my Husky, but it doesn't sling off. I don't know if you have a part missing or what, but there is a little damper right under the chain guard. Check it out, hope this helps.

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.

I have a 365 special that is using an excessive amount of bar oil.


Not sure if this model has an oil volume adjustment--look for a screw head located near the chain return area on the back or underneath in the same area. Turn the screw CW to reduce volume. Run the saw at speed with the bar tip near some cardboard for several moments--it should throw off a thin line of oil. Hope this helps!

Husqvarna 350 oil not getting to chain


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!

How do i adjust the bar oil


turn the saw upside down, there is a little screw that only turns a quarterturn, turn it counterclockwise for the maximum flow

I am having problems with my husky 142 with the .043 gauge bar


have been running saws for over 20 years and have found you can run pretty much any pitch chain on any saw (as long as the lengths matre up)

think about what you are going to be mostly cutting tho. if its softish wood get a chisel type chain.
have fun
