How do I clean & check the bar oiler
Experienced gardeners share their insights in answering this question :
Talked to a friend woodcutter & he advised me to replace the worm gear behind the clutch. I found the part at Sears,($10) Replaced it & the saw is working fine again. PS to get the clutch off remove the spark plug & incert a piece of rope. That binds the engin so the clutch is easily removed. CB
How to Identify and Fix Common Gardening Problems ?
We provide a variety of viewpoints on how to identify and fix common gardening problems. Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced gardeners :
The most common reasons why your automatic oiler isn`t working are: Your chainsaw`s oil tank is empty. The chainsaw oiler is clogged. The oil pump is broken.
Naturally, the chain of your chainsaw will need to be oiled well to function perfectly. To make sure that it functions well, grab some WD-40 Multi-Use-Product. WD-40 works great for both – rust prevention and lubrication.
Bar oil itself lasts indefinitely; it`s the containers holding the oil that determines the shelf life. Bar oil will stay in most bottles for between 3 and 7 years. The oil base determines the length of time; synthetic oils will last the longest, whereas mineral and plant-based oils have a shorter shelf life.
Symptoms include: over reving, overheating, stalling on acceleration, failure to idle, and worst of all, an engine seizure if the problem is neglected. When an air leak occurs, it often puzzles users and even some saw shop technicians because the symptoms of an air leak are varied.
The Right Amount of Chainsaw Oil
As you apply full throttle, a thin line of oil should appear on the paper. Once you see this thin line of oil, you know your bar and chain assembly is getting the proper amount of oil.
A slow-cutting chainsaw is a sign that you might need to sharpen or replace your chain.
What Happens If You Run a Chainsaw Without Bar Oil? If you run a chainsaw without bar oil, it`s likely that the chain will heat up and eventually break. This can cause extensive damage to the chainsaw and may even require a new chain and bar. It`s imperative that you use the correct amount of bar oil.
This most commonly is a result of a dull chain and exerting to much pressure on the bar and chain trying to make the chain saw cut. This could also be either a lack of bar and chain oil ( tank empty, restricted oiler hole ) or an inferior type of oil that is being slung off the chain and not lubricating.

Automatic oiler has never worked well even when saw was new, chain never gets enough oil. Should I use a lighter grade oil, or what else should I check?
Take the bar off the saw and check that the hole that the oil comes out hasn’t become blocked with saw dust. It sometimes happens also that when you are filling the saw with oil, shavings and saw dust can get into the tank and this can block the pipes connecting the tank to the hole that the oil comes out. Although it isn’t really recommended, I have used waste engine oil regularly for oiling the saw. This works ok as long as there aren’t any lumps in it.
