J-B Weld is probably your best option. Cleaning it so it adheres properly is the hard part. Did you ask your local Husky dealer? They may have some options the average owner does not. Phone calls are inexpensive.

Probably cast aluminum, maybe magnesium. HTH and Good Luck.

I concede you have already performed all but the last sentence of part 1.
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.
I further concede when you do there is no oil ooze. If it does not oil on completion of 1 it is most likely a bad oiler or worm gear (see IPL). An example of a Poulan "PP4218AVHD Gas Saw Type 2" follows (may not be your saw):
See the "Handle, Chassis and Bar Assembly" print, item 61 is the pump and item 62 the gear. Both parts are located behind the inboard clutch. Start clutch removal like this:
R² Drive Link Inboard Clutch by
The C-clips tend to fly when being removed. Please wear eye protection and exercise care.

The remaining pieces are using this as a guide:
R² Drive Link Outboard Clutch by
  1. Check the IPL for your saw to see if any special tools are needed. Poulan (Craftsman, Jonsered, Husky) clutch removal tool part number 530031112 if needed, is under $5 from many sources (look at the visible area between the weights if 2 small round sockets are visible you need the tool).
  2. There are metal piston stops available, when square (almost never) with the piston top these work well, if not square they have been known to punch through the piston. I suggest a length of nylon rope (nothing left behind) be used instead of the piston stop (retain 6" ± so you can remove it). Make sure the piston is near the top of the cylinder before feeding the cord or it can fall through the exhaust port and damage the piston as it rises.
  3. Everyone I have ever removed had a left handed thread (tighten it to loosen it).
If the example is not your you can find yours here:
The IPL (exploded parts list) for your saw is the only detail for oil
line routing and it is sketchy at best; components are listed but may be on different illustrations.
The dash number of your serial number is the type.

If you have more questions or need additional help please reply below and I will get back to you. Thank you for using FixYa and Good Luck. HTH

My porter cable rn175 roof nailer keeps jamming the nails.I release the jammed nails and it does it again in just a few minutes. do they need to be cleaned with a special type of cleaner

Or wrong nails or the driver has a problem or the nail feeder /slider of the nails does not work properly, oil the tools by an Wilkerson oil atomizer with a special pneumolube after cleaned and basic lubrication
Clean inside all parts and use an good sillicon grease the cilinder piston ring and other orings with something like type of oks1110 on all moving parts priority in the upper parts above the cilinder and the ring s and o-rings control them they should not be worn or hardened out or worn
otherwise there is another option
BEWARE Only if there is NO real damage to the metal parts by using possible jamming wrong nails then is doing a self service possible

How to change oil

The is no oil insite to change only grease a special bosch lubrication or and the ballbearings insite have grease but you can also lubricate the transmission with Paragon Renolith from Dewalt easier to find in you country , simple ball bearing grease can also, but when its getting hot look at your electric field and also the armature if that color is correct nice brass colored thread windings instead of brown black colored and the commutator (collectors) on the armature is nice the place where the carbon brushes are on the armature are nice colored .because the tool can be on its end .if its noisy and if its worth to repair be aware before repair. how old is the tool or have it second hand bought its maybe a problem.

I have a Milwaukee circular saw model 6365. It still cuts fine, but it squeals loudly (like a little girl) when running. Sorry, couldn't help myself. Seems like the motor bearing(s) need lubrication. ...

You can try to lube the bushings, but they will always start to squeal again. I have tried just about everything, 2 cycle oil works good, wd-40 is a little thin, blaster works ok for a while, reg 3m oil forget it, motor oil, no, white grease, hard to get in there, axle grease, yes, but you have to take the bushings out. The oils, you don't have to take the saw apart. Hope this helps.

I have a Porter Cable 345 6" saw "3" series. Do I need to oil this baby?

unless it has a gearbox with a plug, no. the bearing are sealed. where the saw breaks down the middle, the metal part from the plastic part, there is grease in that gear compartment.

Porter Cable Random Orbital Sander rotates but does not "orbit"

Just solved my problem with Porter Cable 333 orbital sander which just groaned. I thought the worst. I carefully took it apart on the garage floor and immediately suspected it needed lubrication as the motor turned hard. I used my flexible long plastic tube lubrication and put some on the bottom bearing shaft the best I could. I worked it around and around. I began to feel it turning easier. I applied more oil and kept moving and it became completely free. I put a drop on the top bearing even though it was loose. I put it all back together and it works like new. Lesson: do not look for the worst when a tool quits. Suspect the culprit to be lack of lubrication!!!
