There is no adjuster for the Husqvarna 450. Husqvarna recommend that if there's not enough oil reaching the bar that you slow down the engine by adjusting the carburettor screw. I have the same saw and also wanted to adjust the oil flow. I didn't change the carburettor and it's still cutting away without doing any damage. It's meant to use less than a tank full of oil to the tank full of fuel when you're cutting near constantly. With stops in between it will use more fuel and less oil.

Yes you are not getting enough oil to the bar, the 350 has a three position oil pump so turn this up to max, there is also a filter in the base of the oil tank held with a single cross head screw, remove and clean, if no better it may have stripped the oil pump drive gear driven by the sprocket.

Does the husq 440e have an oil adjustment on it?


Hi mwaltz48,

Yes, Huskys have a screw adjustment on the bottom, under the chain sprocket assembly.
While looking at the bar side of the saw, turn it over and you'll see a screw that has 3 positions.
Turn the screw to the right will decrease the oil flow, left to increase it. If you put a longer blade on, you should increase the oil flow.

A way to check your oil flow is to run the saw with the blade pointing at something light, such as a freshly cut chunk of wood, or the end of a log, etc. You should see a light line of oil appear.

I hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate your vote. Thanks,

359 chainsaw husqvarna. is there a manual oiling adjustment or is it always automatic? There seems to be some sort of adjustable screw above the oil reservoir fill cap.


Hi,

The screw above the filler cap is to hold the housing on. The adjusment screw is on the bottom of the saw. When looking at the bar side of the saw, turn it over and you should a screw below the bar and clutch. It has 3 positions. Turning it to the right will decrease the flow of oil, to the left to increase it.
If you put a longer bar and chain on, you usually have to increase the oil flow.

In case you didn't know, to check to see if you have the oil flow correct, run the saw with the blade facing a light, flat object or a chunk of wood you just cut. You should see a light oil line appear after a minute. This is a good way to be sure your pump is working. If you don't see a line of oil, something's wrong. Out of oil, pump not working, etc.

Hope this helps. If it does, I would appreciate a vote or comment. Thanks,

Handie Andie

Can i alter oil flow to chaimac 436


Most hobby saws do not have an adjustable pump, if it is adjustable there will be an external screw close the the clutch and sprocket, would would not need to remove the bar and chain to acsess it.

Suspect that the chain hit a rock or pocket of dirt which will dull the chain in a heartbeat plus pull debris into the chain groove area. Remove the bar and chain and clean everything thoroughly including the chain and bar groove. Inspect the chain teeth carefully looking for burned teeth and other physical damage. If badly damaged, suggest replacing the chain. It's not likely that the bar sliding surfaces have been severely damaged. When you have everything back together and the chain adjusted, start the saw and run the bar tip near some cardboard--it should throw off a thin line of oil in a few moments. There should be an oil volume adjustment screw on the back or just under the same area near the chain return. Turn the screw CCW to increase flow. Hope this helps!

Auto oiler not working


Remove the bar cover. Remove the chain and bar. Behind the bar you will see a set of 4 or 5 small square openings. This is the auto oiler. Make sure they are not obstructed with gunk. There is also an adjustment to increase the oil flow to the bar. It is a small screw and will be marked with a + on one side and a - on the other. You can adjust it to run from 5 (minimum) to 15ml (maximum) per minute. Never use old motor oil or 2 cycle oil in yo

There is an oil-volume adjustment screw located near the chain return area either in back, or just under the case. Turn it CCW to increase volume. Hope this helps!

Turning up the bar oil?


An “OM, 455e Rancher, 455 Rancher, 460 Rancher, 2009-09, EN, FR, ES” Follows (may not be your saw):
http://weborder.husqvarna.com/order_static/doc/HOUS/HOUS2009/HOUS2009_1151382-49.pdf
An excerpt from page 38 of the above OM follows (forcing it may render it inoperative):
Adjustment of the oil pump
Adjustments are made by turning the screw using a screwdriver or combination spanner.
The machine is supplied from the factory with the screw set to position 2.
Turning the screw clockwise will reduce the oil flow and turning the screw anti-clockwise will increase the oil flow.
Recommended settings:
• Bar 13"-15": Position 1 (full CW)
• Bar 15"-18": Position 2 (center)
• Bar 18"-20": Position (full CCW)
These recommendations apply to Husqvarna’s chain oil, for other chain oils increase the oil flow by one step.
WARNING! The engine must be stopped when making adjustments.

All OMs and IPLs can be found here:

Enter the 3 digit model number (no XPs, Es, just the numbers)
