The oil pump is not adjustable, it is controled by the engine speed, it will keep oiling at idle due to the pump drive gear being fixed to the crank, not driven by the sprocket, so it is not good to leave the machine idling whilst moving timber around, the acid test is wheather the fuel runs out before the oil. this is quite correct

Chainsaw Bar oiler empties as soon as filled


You should be using bar oil. It clings better to the chain and bar providing better lubrication.

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,

Excessive bar oil coming from clutch area.


Is bar oil getting on the chain? Depending on the model, their maybe an adjustment on the oil pump to control the flow, check the owners manual. Also make sure you are using bar and chain oil as regular motor oil is much lighter and tends to get "flung" off more.

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.

The saw is a 385xp. We have changed bars and chains numerous times. When sawing the bar gets hot enough to fry an egg and the chain stretches out. Onlynable to saw a minute or teo at the time. bar gets...


Overheating the chain/bar is usually caused by insufficient oil getting to the chain, but can be caused by the chain being too tight to begin with (you should be able to turn the chain by hand), grit in the chain groove, or a poorly sharpened chain. The saw has an oil volume adjustment screw on the lower part of the case near the chain return area. Turning it CCW should increase oil flow. Oil volume can be judged by running the saw tip at speed near some cardboard for a moment--it should throw off a thin line of oil. Chain sharpening condition can be judged by the sawdust residue coming from the cut--if a powder-like material, the teeth are not sharp or are improperly filed. You should not have to bear down excessively on the saw to make it cut quickly. Hope some of this helps!

No oil flows to chain


Depending on your knowledge and experience -
1. Find your manual and check on maintenance routines.
2. If no manual avail - clean your saw and your bar.
Bar - oil holes clear, groove clean etc
Saw - locate where the oil pumps out - ensure any guides, holes etc are clean.
3. If saw gas manual oil pump adjustment screw -advance the flow
4 Drain the oil tank checking for dirt etc and if necessary clean tank with a little of your fuel.
5.Refill oil tank AFTER it is clean and dry.
6. Replace bar/chain etc and test if flow is better
If still no good you may need to repair/replace oil pump -not that hard to do but if in doubt take it to a reputable dealer.

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!

No oil getting to bar and chain on 20in. homelite chain saw


Take the cover off the sprocket for the chain and loosen the adjusting screw so you can remove the bar. Remove the chain from around the bar. In the read of the bar there is usually one or two small holes less than 1/4th inch. This is where the oil injector shoots oil into the bar for oiling the chain. The hole can become plugged with sawdust thus stopping the flow of oil. Clean out this hole as well as the injector nozzle for the oil underneath the bar. Not a bad idea to run something slim all the way around the bar in the grove that the chain runs in. This will remove all the excess sawdust that can keep the oiler from working.
