Question about Homelite Garden
Oil out of the exhaust means that the oil /fuel mixture is incorrect
change the mix to 50:1 ( for the correct mixture there should be a faint wisp of smoke at rpms)
the chain is oiled automatically when the chain is running and the oil will leak out if left with a full oil tank and unused
the idling problem most likely will be from the incorrect oil/fuel ratio or incorrect oil in use --it is not engine oil but 2 stroke oil
do not use e mix fuels in small engines

check gas tank vent and cap. Adjust carb a small amount ie. back out screw marked L 1/4 turn. If that does not work adjust screw marked "H" 1/4 turn out if no results adjust back to original position and go 1/4 turn farther in.

16:1 ratio for most 2-stroke oil brands. A service manual recommends tro check the ratio marked on the bottle if using Homelite brand 2-stroke oil. For other oils, 16 parts of gas to 1 part of oil.
For 1 gal of fuel, that is 270cc of oil required to meet the 16:1 ratio.

Oil System Plugged:
Timberman 45 does not cross to an IPL I can find. If you can find an IPL it really simplifies disassembly/reassembly, provides component locations and component part numbers. Without the correct IPL I would not undertake a repair.
Homelite/Ryobi.com (authorized parts supplier)
https://www.gardnerinc.com/recons/disclaimer-lg.php - Agree; Choose “Product Line”; “Select OEM” & “Select Catalog” both to “Homelite Consumer Products”. A drop down list appears; self explanatory from here.
The numbers Homelite & Ryobi use do not match the numbers everyone posts. A careful inspection of your saw should find something that matches.
