Re: Remington mighty mite chain saw
Oiling has nothing to do with compression.It has conection only with engine rotation(rpm).More rpm results more oil and viceverse.Check the oil filter,the oil line,the holes from the bar,the oiler,the wormgear and the oil hose.

You might actually have the chain too tight. With the saw off you should be able to lift the chain until the gear tooth (tooth on inside of chain) almost lifts out of the chain bar.
I've never used an electric chain saw but if it has a chain oiler you should also check your chain oiler to make sure you're getting enough oil on the chain, if you run the saw with the chain aim at a clean surface you should see oil on the surface almost immediately.
These oilers are called diaphragm oilers and work fairly well when the saw is new with great compression. As the saw wears out, the compression drops and a side effect is less oil pumped. The diaphragm is replaceable and it's not horribly expensive. Most good saws use a gear oiler - and even the newer Poulans use gear oilers. The gear oilers tend to have less problems and don't rely on engine compression.
I hope the nut is stripped and the stud is OK. Try to gently wedge something below the nut and with a socket attempt to slowly unscrew it. Remington IPLs can be found here: Remington.com http://www.remingtonpowertools.com/find_manual.cgi They do not use model names. Under "Products" click "Chain Saws"; find an image matching your model and click it. Some list a manual that includes an IPL some do not. If no IPL is listed the only place to get help is the "Repair Center" nearest you for parts. I doubt a bad stud can economically be replaced. If the stud is still good NAPA Auto Parts can assist you to find a replacement nut. HTH Lou
Joe you are weak! While we are not calling you a sissy girl, we do wonder. You need to build up your arms. Try lifting weight for about a month before you try to start the engine again. Stay out of dark alleys until you do. We will be watching.
