I have a husqvarna 137 chainsaw. The problem is with the bar oil. When the saw runs oil is flowing but where the rubber corner piece which allows the oil to flow out of appears to be just dripping the oil straight out. It looks like it should fill a small reservoir behind the metal plate and the oil then moves upwards where the chains drags the oil through the oil hole on the bar which is moving outwards as in the top chain on the bar. However the chain-brake area is just getting messy with oil splattering all over and the bar not actually getting oiled. I have fitted a new metal plate to see if the corner of the original was not sealing properly but that has not helped. The bar holes are clean. Any suggestions as I can’t see what it could be?

Dry chainbar indicates the oil pipe from the pump/reservoir is blocked. Just needs a clean out. – Oil leaking from bottom after use indicates reservoir is continuing to syphon oil from pipe joints because oil pump is creating pressure in the tank because of blocked pipe. Simple cure is to crack open the oil cap each time you stop using the saw. This will release the tank pressure and stop the syphon effect.
