Remove the bar and chain. Clean the engine side case where the bar fits. Does the oil port itself leak or is it coming from the engine case? If from the case, it may be a loose or split line from the tank or it could be a cracked oil tank. If the tank is cracked, replace it as there is no glue or epoxy that can permanently repair it. If the leakage seems to have stopped, clean the drive end of the bar including the two small oil passages that run out to the chain groove. Re-assemble the bar and chain, then run the bar tip at speed near some cardboard for a few moments--it should throw off a thin line of oil. This saw should have an oil volume adjustment screw located near the chain return area on the back or underneath the case. Adjust CW to reduce the oil volume. Hope some of this helps!

SOURCE: chainsaw leaks chain oil when not in use

The oiler on most chainsaws is designed to be gravity fed. For that reason, if there is oil in the oiler it will drip out. There is no fix to this except for awareness. When possible stop work when you need to refill the oiler. when not possible, expect it to leak and plan for it. for example, store the saw in a tray with some oil-dri absorbant clay in the bottom.

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.

I have a husqvarna rancher 55 and am getting way too much oil on the chain. This occured immediately after I had cleaned the muffler and air filter. Any help?


I have no idea why cleaning these parts would cause increased oil flow to the chain--did you remove the bar and chain in this process? There is an oil volume adjustment screw head under the case about where the chain returns to the engine--turn it CW to decrease oil volume. Hope this helps!

455 rancher chainsaw does not pump oil to the chain


If you look under the machine by the chain you'll see a flat head screw (next to the sprocket) which controls the bar and chain oil flow . Try to turn the screw and check if there's any oil flow to the chain . If not you will need to replace the oil pump (part # 537 10 55-02 which will cost you about $35.00) Hope this help

What size file to sharpen chain for 55 rancher


It depends on the chain you have installed on the chainsaw. You can look at the numbers stamped on the drive link side of the cutting chain and it should have a 2 digit number that correlates to the size.

The factory chain supplied with the #455 rancher was a .325" pitch 3/8" chain.

Here's a link to the specs for your saw with some useful info

Chainsaw leaks chain oil when not in use


You might try loosing the oil cap on the chain oiler filler cap to release any preasure that might have built up during use and is forcing oil out as it sits. It sounds like a simple fix but it might just work.
