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

Cannot find adjustment oil screw on my Husqvarna 61 Chainsaw


The 61 has a 4 position oil pump, the adjuster is a black plastic screw located to the top right hand corner of the pump face, just behind the sprocket, you will have to clean around that area to find it. The pump has numbers 1 to 4 around the screw, 4 being the highest position.

I have a fairly new 359 e-tech chainsaw it starts but won't run I've changed the filter.


It sounds like a fuel starvation issue, remove the fuel hose from the tank and replace the filter on the end, check the fuel hose up to the carb, any sign of splits, cracks or fuel escape and the pipe needs replacing, it may be just a case of richening the mixture via the carb screws, unfortunatly the screws have anti tamper sleeves on them, they will have to be drawn back to adjust the carb, this may be a dealer adjustment.

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)

15 = week produced – March

Husqvarna 272 xp, setting for setting screw for oiler


To check for proper oiling, run the saw at speed with the tip of the bar near a piece of cardboard--it should throw off a thin line of oil after several moments of running. Adjust the oil adjust screw CCW for more oil. The screw is usually in the lower front or underneath the engine. Remove the bar and chain first before adjusting anything and check the oil passages located in the drive end of the bar for plugging--especially the two small passages that go from the large oil holes out to the chain groove on both sides. Start the engine without the bar and chain--look at the oil port where the bar mounts next to the engine. It should ooze out oil with the engine running fast. If nothing at all, the pump, oil lines, and oil filter in the tank should be checked. When everything seems to be working, then adjust oil flow for best operation. Hope this helps!

Can anyone tell me how to tune a carby on a 371 husky chainsaw please


Fisrt off clean the air filter and oil it then squeeze it as hard as you can to remove the excess oil. Install the air filter. (Oiling is not required but sure does stop the dust and makes it work better) .

Start it..
warm it up

full throttle....
-adjust "H" screw until optimal speed and power

return idle
-adjust "L" screw until when you mash the throttle is does not stall.

lastly set idle speed screw on butterfly if necessary

Now if it was parts replacement... repost please.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Husqvarna 340 oiler not working


Hello again Rudy.
Please reply below (Add Comments) with the serial number of your saw then I can investigate a little further.
You can reply even when the question is closed. I am not certain how but I get email notification of your reply when done correctly. If equipped the oiler adjustment is below the crankshaft on the clutch side. Look up from the bottom. On the side of my 359 is an icon of a link of chain with a drop of oil above it. The oiler adjustment is aft of that and can only be seen from the bottom of the saw. The manual I saw said 3 position only with CCW (3 - 18 to 20" bar) most oil. Forcing it beyond the stops causes a lot of problems.

Is your serial number is between 07 18##### and 08 17#####?
Page 5 item 1 shows location of the serial number. Not all newer saws have an adjustable oiler. Please reply below.

Oiler on saw not pushing oil as fast as gas is there an ajustment screw or is it automatic and just needs to be cleaned


Your Operator's Manual does not address any oiler adjustment; an IPL for for your saw lists no oil adjustment screw.

Given the above I would conclude your saw has no operator adjustable oiler. If you think oil output is inadequate contact Poulan here:
Poulan.com
The dash number of your serial number is the type.

A shorter bar will oil better. with no adjuster I recommend you not go longer. If the bar is getting hot make Poulan repair it under warranty!!!

Chain oil leaks. repair shop. no need to repair. will start leaking again after few uses. is this true ? husqvarna 359


My 359 doesn't weep oil, one of very few that don't. But the oiler has never been turned above 3 or below 1.
Did you perhaps turn the oiler adjustment to far? It has only 3 positions. Check your manual.
Return it to the repair shop and make them stand by their work. If it stops when picked up from repair shop then starts again later something you are doing is the likely cause. Read your manual about oiler adjustment.
You can find both an Operator's Manual and an IPL here:

Husqvarna 359 leaking chain oil


Remove the sprocket cover, bar, and chain. Find area where oil is discharged from case--is any part of the rubber seal damaged? Next, use compressed air to clean sawdust and dirt from oiler ports in rear of bar as well as the chain slot. Are you using motor oil instead of bar oil? Make sure there is nothing to prevent bar from making close contact with oiler port in case. Reassemble all parts and adjust chain tension.
