Was the plastic gear damaged? The pump itself may be in trouble. Did you check for a plugged filter in the tank? Have you started the engine with bar and chain off? It should ooze out oil from the side port where the bar fits up to. If so, the small oil passages that run from the large holes out to the chain groove on each edge of the bar may need to be cleaned. This saw should have an oil volume adjustment screw on the bottom near where the chain returns to the engine. Turn it CCW to increase flow. Test the volume adjustment by running the assembled saw tip near some cardboard--it should throw off a thin line of oil. Hope this helps!

How do I just how much oil comes out an automatic Oiler on a husky 181 SE

Turn the saw upside down, on the clutch half of the crank you should see a 5crew head which can only be accessed from the bottom of the saw. There may also be a pictogram of a cutter with an oil drip and a + and - next to it.

Ihave never been able to get the automatic oiler to work on a Poulan Wikd Thing 18" chainsaw. I have replaced the spring drive, bought a spacer tool for the spring drive, replaced the plastic gear,...

It is a fairly simple oil pump system, the spring gear on the crank will fit on either way, however the spacing of the coils is is critical, there is a small plastic tool to do this, i think you said you had this tool, it has to be an issue with the pump, the gear not only turns but has a throw, the amount of throw denotes the amount of oil delivered, a small steel pin in the side of the pump body works in a cut a way in the pump shaft, has the pin fallen out? just cant think what else you can do as you seem to have done everthing.

372 husky oiler doesnt work does it have a plastic gear under clutch or shud i replace pump its not clogged yhanks in advance gilly

It uses a vacuum style suction method to pull oil from the reservoir to the chain bar. There is about a 3 inch piece of small black hose that gets pinched or broken and stops the oil flow. Most of time you can replace the hose without too much difficulty if you have a pair of long nose needle nose pliers. You can get the hose at your Husqvarna dealer or a hardware store that does small engine repair.

Chain oiler does not seem to be putting out enough oil,what can i do to increase the flow?

This model does not have an adjustable oiler. If the ports are clean and the pickup is clean, you may need to replace the pump. This is generally an inexpensive repair.

I have a Husqvarna 460. I have had to get my oiler replaced twice now. It just stops working. Is this a common problem with the 460? What is the reason why they stop working?

It sure is, there have been issues with the pick up pipe kinking, the filter being to fine to allow oil flow, it is possible to increase oil flow by increasing the angle on the pump shat, but this is a dealer mod.

Oil flow not working?was below 32 degrees has this damaged anything

Your saw (Husky 235E) is not fitted with an adjustable oiler. The manual does not mention using a thinner oil with lower temperatures. If it was run for an extended period without oil it may have caused a little wear to oiler components. I would take it into a warm area, let it acclimatise, and test the oiler as follows (it will probably oil the surface it is sitting on; my Lady would not be happy if I oiled her table!):
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) 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. If yes reassemble your saw. If no, continue with 2.
  2. Work your way through the linkage 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. Please see the IPL to aid in oiler component identification.

Manuals here:
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)
15 = week produced - March
00198 = 198th unit Husky produced that week

It is equipped with an outboard clutch, the oiler is below it. This will help you remove clutch parts.

  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,
  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 starter cord or nylon rope 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).
A phone call to your local Husky dealer for an estimate might provide a pleasant surprise. I might inquire just to get recommendations for using the nonadjustable oiler. It is not as difficult as it appears. Good luck. HTH

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

455 rancher will not produce oil for the chain. Oil pump replacement? Need repair manual or parts breakdown. Thanks Warren

Also make sure that where the oil is pumped against the side of the bar that the oil port (little hole) that feeds oil into the bar's slot is clear. Mine would go through a tank of oil with each tank of gas, but the chain wasn't getting oiled until I cleaned out this little hole.
