Remove the bar and chain completely. Clean the entire case side where the bar fits as well as the bar drive end oil passages--especially the small channels the send oil out to the chain groove on each side. Back off on the chain adjustment by several turns, then fit the cleaned cover onto the saw after installing the bar and chain. Make sure the adjustment 'tang' fits into one of the large holes in the bar end. Fasten the cover screws/nuts down finger tight, then adjust the bar out until the chain pulls up to the lower run of the bar, but not so tight that you can't move the chain by hand. Tighten the cover fasteners firmly, then recheck chain tension. If ok, do a test cut on a log. Good luck!

To adjust the automatic oil flow, Turn the chainsaw upside down. Turn the screw marked with a "+" or "-" toward the "+" sign. If too much oil is present turn the screw toward the "-" sign. Repeat the oil test and adjust as necessary.

How do I adjust the amount of oil that goes on the blade. It seems to dump a lot of oil on the blade and blade guide. Goes everyplace


Sorry but this model is not equipped with an oil flow adjustment screw.

The clutch cover area must be saturated with lubricant to properly lubricate the bar and chain and
to ensure the long-term durability of your chain saw.

One thing you could try is to purchase a slightly thicker oil. I got some once at a auto part store and it had anti-sling ingredients.

HOW TO CONTROL THE OIL FLOW AND ADJUST THE CHAIN FOR AN ELECTRIC CHAIN SAW


The oil flow is not adjustable
Check the bar to see if it has something that looks like a flat head screw that you can turn, it is possible that it is equipped with an EZ adjust bar where you can make tension adjustments without loosening the cover. If not, loosen the bar nuts and use the tension screw on the back of the cover to make your adjustments.

Does the husq 440e have an oil adjustment on it?


Hi mwaltz48,

Yes, Huskys have a screw adjustment on the bottom, under the chain sprocket assembly.
While looking at the bar side of the saw, turn it over and you'll see a screw that has 3 positions.
Turn the screw to the right will decrease the oil flow, left to increase it. If you put a longer blade on, you should increase the oil flow.

A way to check your oil flow is to run the saw with the blade pointing at something light, such as a freshly cut chunk of wood, or the end of a log, etc. You should see a light line of oil appear.

I hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate your vote. Thanks,

Can i alter oil flow to chaimac 436


Most hobby saws do not have an adjustable pump, if it is adjustable there will be an external screw close the the clutch and sprocket, would would not need to remove the bar and chain to acsess it.

I installed new bar and chain .cleaned every thing .assembled saw filled up chain oil thank. started sarted saw ,chain still not oiling.


Without knowing what saw you have it is hard to exact directions.On most saws their is an adjusting screw on the bottom side of saw by oil tank and chain that adjusted the flow rate of oil. If you can locate that try rurning it one turn clockwise and run saw for a short period and see if you are getting any more oil.If youare sure you have the right screw I would continue adjusting . If it doesn''t seem to work I would remove screw and make sure there is no blockage and that oil is present. For proper operation you need to keep a light film of oil on it. If you aren't getting enough oil you will cause chains to overheat,possibly ruining chain and bar. Hope this help you. Thanks

No oil flows to chain


Depending on your knowledge and experience -
1. Find your manual and check on maintenance routines.
2. If no manual avail - clean your saw and your bar.
Bar - oil holes clear, groove clean etc
Saw - locate where the oil pumps out - ensure any guides, holes etc are clean.
3. If saw gas manual oil pump adjustment screw -advance the flow
4 Drain the oil tank checking for dirt etc and if necessary clean tank with a little of your fuel.
5.Refill oil tank AFTER it is clean and dry.
6. Replace bar/chain etc and test if flow is better
If still no good you may need to repair/replace oil pump -not that hard to do but if in doubt take it to a reputable dealer.

Husqvarna 272 xp, setting for setting screw for oiler


To check for proper oiling, run the saw at speed with the tip of the bar near a piece of cardboard--it should throw off a thin line of oil after several moments of running. Adjust the oil adjust screw CCW for more oil. The screw is usually in the lower front or underneath the engine. Remove the bar and chain first before adjusting anything and check the oil passages located in the drive end of the bar for plugging--especially the two small passages that go from the large oil holes out to the chain groove on both sides. Start the engine without the bar and chain--look at the oil port where the bar mounts next to the engine. It should ooze out oil with the engine running fast. If nothing at all, the pump, oil lines, and oil filter in the tank should be checked. When everything seems to be working, then adjust oil flow for best operation. Hope this helps!
