SOURCE: no bar chain oil flow

I do not know how old the unit is but usually these saws get clogged often as result of wet plants with sand or dirt and they do clog the unit…see if you can take it to self car wash and pay few $$ to wash it and air pressure everything that if you do not have them LOL…I use this as it is the most cheapest way to clean my generators, garden equipments, etc. let me know..

SOURCE: oil not lubrication the chain and bar

Hello Danny;
I know you have already done this but my OCD requires me to post it.
Oil System Plugged:

  1. Remove the clutch cover, bar, and chain, clean the bar groove, any holes and passages on the rear of the bar (both sides, consider rotating the bar), if equipped with a sprocket nose ensure it rotates easily at least one complete revolution. Clean the saw oiler hole and channel. Insert a blunted, hooked piece of wire through the oil filler hole and pull the hose in the oil tank out. Pay attention to the screen or filter on the free end (clean or replace, difficult to determine serviceability). Start the saw and see if it oils when revved up (oozes down side of saw). If yes reassemble your saw. If no, continue with 2.
  2. Work your way through the linkage (use IPL to identify components and locations) cleaning and replacing any defective parts as you go. Carefully check the hoses for cracks especially at bends and connections. If equipped with an oil pump it is usually behind the clutch (clutch is a left handed thread). Please make extensive notes & some digital pictures will help during reassembly.
If it does not oil on completion of 1 it is most likely a bad oiler or worm gear (see IPL).

You do not provide a model number. Every Husky I have seen has an outboard clutch this may help.

  1. Check the IPL for your saw to see if any special tools are needed. Poulan (Craftsman, Jonsered, Husky) clutch removal tool part number 530031112 if needed, is under $5 from many sources (look at the visible area between the weights if 2 small round sockets are visible you need the tool).
  2. There are metal piston stops available, when square (almost never) with the piston top these work well, if not square they have been known to punch through the piston. I suggest a length of nylon rope (nothing left behind) be used instead of the piston stop (retain 6" ± so you can remove it). Make sure the piston is near the top of the cylinder before feeding the cord or it can fall through the exhaust port and damage the piston as it rises.
  3. Everyone I have ever removed had a left handed thread (tighten it to loosen it).

The IPL (exploded parts list) for your saw is the only detail for oil line routing and it is sketchy at best. Oil system components and part numbers are listed but may be on different illustrations. They are also beneficial with disassembly/reassembly:
HusqvarnaUSA.com
http://www.husqvarna.com/us/homeowner/support/download-manuals/
Enter the 3 digit model number (no XPs, Es, just the numbers)
Serial number decode – useful when downloading IPLs and Manuals
06 1500198
06 = year produced – 2006 (single digit before 2000; please contact Husqvarna for single digit clarification http://www.husqvarna.com/us/homeowner/support/customer-support/)
15 = week produced – March
00198 = 198th unit Husky produced that week

What would cause oil to turn milky white?


That is the typical color when water is mixing with the oil.
Probably a leaking seal or gasket.
The washer will need servicing.

Have you checked your oil level? Is it over full on the dipstick? What does the oil look like - clear or milky? If milky, you may have had a head gasket failure or crack in the block/head that allowed coolant into the crankcase. If you kept running the engine after this, it may very well have seized. The timing chain can't get 'too tight', so that is not your problem.
Use a breaker bar with the appropriate sized socket and see if you can manually rotate the crankshaft pulley. If not, your engine is going to need some serious work (or replacement).

Milky oil dipstick, white exhaust smoke, coolant in spark plugs


*White milky oil on dipstick = coolant in oil.
*Coolant on sparkplugs = cracked head or blown head gasket
*White smoke = burning excessive oil in the cylinders, which can be caused by a number of things including valve seals, cracked head or blown head gasket.
***All three of these symptoms together, however, means its the head or head gasket. Both are costly but better the head gasket than the entire head.

In addition to the gas and oil mixture there is a place for just oil....what do I need to put in there ?


That's for the bar&chain oil. It dribbles onto the chain as the saw runs, lubricating the where the chain slides over the slot in the edge of the bar. Without this oil the chain & bar will overheat pretty quickly, ruining both the bar and the chain.
Good luck

Chainsaw is smoking excessively when in use


White smoke is usually associated with burning antifreeze in an automobile engine, but in this case, trying to cut wet wood might be suspect. The chain must be properly sharpened and the teeth cut toward you on the bottom run of chain. When the chain is properly adjusted, it should not droop from the lower edge of the bar, but no so tight that you can't turn it by hand. Forcing a poor cutting chain into the kerf will overheat the chain and cause it to become loose quickly. Hope this helps!

New chain installed, cut for 1/2 hour, chain now sags well below


Place a piece of white paper on the ground
Start your saw and point the tip of the bar at the paper, this will allow you to see if it is oiling or not
I am assuming that we are dealing with a newer saw and not an old manual oiler
Blowing air back through the oil ports in to the oil tank ( with the cap removed and oil tank drained) should help clean out whatever is plugging it.
Once cleared run a bit of diesel through the oil tank, drain it and refill with clean fresh oil
I never use old oil in my saws for just this reason

Hope this helps
