I have a pouln 2450 chainsaw and it is going through way too much bar oil. The oil is getting sprayed off the bar and runs out quickly. Where is the bar oil adjustment screw on that model saw.

    Thanks for the info on the Poulan 2450. It is a bit disappointing because an oil adjust screw would have been much easier but I get the whole Sears saw vs a Stihl. Thanks Dane

Hi, My name is Dane and I'll help you out on this. There is no screw to adjust the oiler output. You should rebuild the oiler assembly with the rebuild kit. I inserted a link below. Click on it and and put in your model number. The Poulans have cheap oilers. I have one myself and it leaks constantly. Tried to replace it and it didn't last. The saw cuts great though. You may want to keep in mind that eventualy you may want to just drain the Bar oil after use. You may get lucky though and your replacement may work. Good luck! Dane

Hard starting


Good morning Marty.

I don't know your specific model, but have rarely seen a chainsaw that doesn't get persnickety at times.
You've been able to get it running, which means you have gas, a spark, and air. The next questions would then be:
  1. Are you running on gas that's been sitting for a long time? If so, get some new gas and mix the right amount of 2-stroke oil in, as recommended by your manual.
  2. Have you checked that you have bar oil? There's a second reservoir for the chain/bar lube oil. Make sure you're not dry there. If you are, you'll generate a lot of friction and heat between chain and bar, can gum up the chain with wood debris, and will start damaging your saw quickly.
  3. Can you rev the saw once started? If you can rev it to higher RPMs and get the chain to engage, (and hopefully be able to see a fine spray of oil coming off the far end of the blade), then the saw can run and cut. If you let off on the gas and it slows down and then dies, you likely need to adjust the idle. There will probably be an indent on the side of the saw with labels like 'Lo' and 'Hi' or 'Idle' 'Cut' or some such. Try turning the 'lo' screw a quarter turn, probably clockwise. Try starting / idling the saw and see if it sounds better or worse. If worse, undo the quarter turn and go a quarter turn the other way. Keep track of how many turns you do. If there's really no change, return the screw to the original position. if it improves, still keep track and then leave at a position where the idle runs acceptably.
  4. You could have a clogged fuel or air filter. Restricted fuel or air flow could make the ignition dodgy, and not enough to maintain idle at low RPMs. Cleaning or replacing the filter(s) may help. Chainsaws generate prodigious clouds of wood dust, and that can foul a filter, especially an air filter, really quickly.
  5. Fouled spark plug. likewise, lame spark can also make for lackluster ignition and inability to idle well. Pull the plug, examine it for fouling, and check that it's properly gapped. Clean, gap, and/or replace as seems prudent. See if that makes a difference.
Hoping this may help!

How.do/i.remove.oilpump


well you failed ot mention the make and model so let me say this, most chainsaws oil pumps are easy removed by taking off the bar and chain , this requires the removal of the clutch cover not a big deal you neeed to take that off to get bar and chain off , then it's a quick twist of a phillips screw driver and out it pops , dont let that little hose go fall back inside unless you enjoy fishing , cus your gonna be fishing for it back , i use a lasso ! of crabbing line string on the hose to keep it close up top
, dont forget to clean your bar oil passage out of saw dust !! i like brakeclean for this job , but dont spray on paint job !!!

Is 10-30w car oil ??? Okay to use as the Oil on the Chainsaw Bar of a Remington Pole Saw Model 106890-02?


Car engine oil has not got a non fling addative so will just spray off the end of the bar and not lubricate the chain where it does most of its cutting, on the underside of the bar.

I have a poulan wild thing 14" 2050 at wt chainsaw and i need to know what chain and bar oil i need to use, can i use ordenary engine oil for chain and bar ad where do i get spare parts in perth...


You should use a non fling oil, this is an oil with a sticky addative to stop the oil just spraying off the end of the bar, and not lubricating the underside of the bar where most cutting is done.

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

I have a poulan wild thing 18" bar and I have had a problem with the bars wearing out quickly. I use regular poulan bar and chain oil. Did this saw have a specific problem with the oiling system?


If the oil level in the chain oil tank goes down normally then you may be running the chain too tight. Also make sure the oil ports in the bar are clear so the oil can get to the chain. hope this helps you

Bar sprocket smokes, gets hot spot


Sounds like you're not getting enough oil to the chain. Basically you've got an oil pump, pickup and filter involved in getting oil from the resovior to the chain/bar. If you cleaned the obvious area and the chain is not coated with oil, you may have a clog further up (inside) the oil delivery mechanisms. Also, drain the oil from the tank, and see if you can "blow" air through there. With the saw running & pointed down, you should be able to see oil on the ground being slung off the chain, if not, you are not getting enough oil to the chain.
