SOURCE: Insufficient chain oiling
Sorry to tell you this but you need a new OIL PUMP but it's not a difficult thing to replace.
On the main shaft of the crank shaft under the centrifugal clutch is a spiral wound wire that matches a plastic part that is the oil pump. You can get the part from Poulan parts and it will take about 15 minutes to fix the first time eight minutes the second time.
Glad to be of assistance.

Try using carb cleaner or WD40. I hope that you removed the oil cap and oil before you tried... hope this helps, rick

GS, there is a pump driven by the clutch sprocket/drum. Operate the engine with the bar off. There should be oil coming out.
a) If so, the hole in the bar is plugged with saw dust. This is very common on all brands of saws.
b) If not, then remove the clutch/drum assembly and inspect the worm gear drive of the pump.
*note, the threads on all chain saw clutches are Left Hand reverse threads.
