SOURCE: Can't get the chain oiler to work. Using standard bar oil.

You can always put some penentrating oil in the saw oil tube by the bar, spray it in with the plastic straw attatched. Sometimes this will clean things out. As far as the tube being un attatched,,,, taking case apart is usually the remedy - kinda takes a while... :) Hope this helps you, Rick.

SOURCE: Chain Saw, Stihl Model 011, cutting off

I've been messin with my poulan 2150 that was doing the same thing. Good, fresh gas, good spark,etc. I noticed whenever I loosened the fuel cap it would literally spray gas out! alas, I removed the muiffler assy and the darn thing fired up the first pull! I've got the muffler parts soaking in gas right now and I'm sure this the problem. It just makes sense especially if you use the same 'mixed fuel' can for weed eater, blower,etc. Check your's out, it could very well be your problem too! GOOD LUCK

SOURCE: Stihl 024 chain oiler is not function, how to

This isn't an easy repair. You'll need to take off the pto clutch and that might not be easy. The oiler is behind the clutch. There is a drive gear behind the clutch that drives the oiler. You should check to make sure oil is getting from the reservoir to the pump. That is easiest to do with the pump off the saw. If you take it to your local Stihl dealer, unless the pump is shot, this is not a complicated or expensive repair.

SOURCE: i need a fuel hose diagram for a stihl model 028

Stihl IPLs (exploded parts list) are propriatary, You can request one here: The IPL (exploded parts list) for your saw is the only detail for fuel line routing and it is sketchy at best; components are listed but on multiple illustrations.

Typical Fuel System (Primer Bulb and fuel lines may not apply)

  • The hose in the tank with the filter on the free end connects directly to the carburetor input connection.
  • If the saw is equipped with a primer bulb, an output line from the carburetor connects to the suction side of the primer (once the bulb is collapsed it draws fuel from the tank through the carburetor to refill as it inflates).
  • The pressure side of the primer returns displaced fuel to the tank as it is depressed.
Take lots of notes and a few digital photographs to help with reassembly. HTH

Stihl 028 av super not oiling


Part of the routine service while sharpening the chain and adjusting the chain tension is to remove the guide bar to clean the slot and to clean the side of the saw case of any and all impacted crud. This impacted crud many times inhibits the oil flow to the bar causing it to appear as though the oiler is not oiling. Make sure you clean the discharge port of the oil pump...it will be the opening that aligns with a slot in the bar to transfer the oil to the chain.

After cleaning and reassembling, start the saw and rev it up for 2 to 3 seconds and observe the bar tip as it is aimed against a clean piece of cardboard. If the oiler is working, within this time frame, a thin film of oil will appear as it is slung off the bar tip.

Too much oil is being delivered on the chain, how do I adjust the oiler on my Stihl 038av super?


This is Stihl's manual showing the proper adjustment for the oiler. Flip the saw on its side, chain and bar side up, and look for a flat head screw.

Clockwise rotation on any saw is more oil, and counterclockwise will be less oil.

I do not appear to be getting oil to my chain on my Stihl 028 chainsaw, can you advise me how to fix this ? I thought I may have the chain too tight but having used a chainsaw for many years, I thought it...


Hello Tom;
This is an OM for a Stihl 028. I did not see an oiler adjustment. It does have the "Master Control Lever" and from what little I know of Stihl this is a source of headaches if not used properly. If you are not familiar with it suggest you read everything the manual has to say about it.
http://www.stihlusa.com/stihl_ownersmanuals/STIHL028_with_safety_manual.pdf

Oil System Plugged:
  1. Remove the clutch cover, bar, and chain, clean the bar groove, any holes and passages on the rear of the bar (both sides, consider rotating the bar), if equipped with a sprocket nose ensure it rotates easily at least one complete revolution. Clean the saw oiler hole and channel. Insert a blunted, hooked piece of wire through the oil filler hole and pull the hose in the oil tank out. Pay attention to the screen or filter on the free end (clean or replace, difficult to determine serviceability). Start the saw and see if it oils when revved up (oozes down side of saw). If yes reassemble your saw. If no, continue with 2.
  2. Work your way through the linkage (use IPL to identify components and locations) cleaning and replacing any defective parts as you go. Carefully check the hoses for cracks especially at bends and connections. If equipped with an oil pump it is usually behind the clutch (clutch is a left handed thread). Please make extensive notes & some digital pictures will help during reassembly.
If it does not oil on completion of 1 it is most likely a bad oiler or worm gear (see IPL). I has a gear driven oil pump but because it is Stihl and they claim proprietatry right you cannot find an IPL on line. You must also find a Stihl dealer for new OE parts.

NEED NEW CHAIN DRIVE UNIT INCLUDING PLASTIC


The model 028 Stihl Chainsaw was in production for many years and the clutch drum sprocket (or chain drive) came in three (3) versions over the years of production.
For several reasons, it is best to take the saw to an authorized Stihl Dealership (Locate your nearest dealership HERE) for production identification, evaluation of cost-effectivness and availability of parts.

Reason 1) The first-generation 028 saw is approaching 30 years old.

Reason 2) Extreme heat caused by a locked chain-brake can damage the engine case and render the saw unfixable (part support is going away due to age).

Reason 3) The shear cost of parts and amount of time it would take for a DIY repair.

Reason 4) The plastic gears you mentioned are the drive system that make the chain's oil pump work. If the plastic is melted, the oil pump is likely to be damaged as well. In most cases the oil pump cover gets damaged ... the list goes on and on.

Genuine Stihl parts are not sold online and aftermarket parts would be a gamble. It's up to you to decide if the cost, time and effort are worth it.
Hope this helps.

How to adjust chain bar oiler


The Stihl 026 PRO does have an adjustable oiler and it is located on the bottom of the saw just below the clutch drum.
Stihl also builds an 026 "Standard" without the adjustable oiler, however, the hole location for adjustment is still there.

The 026 PRO will also have a decompression valve on top of the saw to make the rope easier to pull during startup. If you have the DECO valve you should also have the adjustable oiler. Hope this helps.
