16 Inch Gas Chain Saw MCC1635AK

Experienced gardeners share their insights in answering this question :
Remove the bar and chain–clean the cover and case side. Start the engine and see if oil oozes out of the side port where the bar fits. Also, try the manual oil pump if it exists. If ok, clean the bar end oil-passages including the two channels that run from the large holes out to the chain groove on each side of the bar. Clean the entire chain groove, and check the tip sprocket for free turning. If no oil came out of the port, then remove the rear case which exposes the two tanks, the oil pump and the bracket that holds the bar to the engine. The oil pump runs by use of crankshaft impulses and has a diaphragm in the pump body that may be damaged. Also check the tank filter fitting. When you get everything back together, run the bar tip at speed near some cardboard–it should throw off a thin line of oil after several moments of fast running. Hope this helps!

How to Identify and Fix Common Gardening Problems ?

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.
Without lubricant, the speed at which the chain moves over the chainsaw bar can cause some serious friction. A slowed-down chain and excessive fuel burning mean there`s a lot of friction between your bar and chain, which means a lot of heat is being produced that could do major damage to your saw.
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.
Contact With The Ground

With a single contact with the ground while running, a chainsaw can become very dull. This is because the ground contains sand and dust which is abrasive and contains a lot of tiny rocks. To avoid such occurrences, avoid cutting wood placed on the ground.

This can be caused by normal variations in air pressure that occur due to changes in temperature throughout the day and night. This is particularly present in areas that experience more drastic changes in day/night temperature.

On a husqavarna 362 xp special 71cc chainsaw very little oil is coming out to the chain i have removed the chain and bar and cleaned and still very little oil is making it to the chain what should i do ??
ANSWER : Check to see if there is an oil-volume adjustment screw located near the lower part of the chain where it goes into the cover, but mounted in the main case. It might be underneath the case in about the same location. Turn it CCW somewhat, if found, and check for oiling by holding the bar tip running at speed near some cardboard. If properly oiled, it will throw off a thin line of oil after several moments. If there is no adjustment, then you will have to investigate the oil pump, lines, and filter/valve in the oil tank. Make sure to clean the small oil passages in the drive end of the bar. Hope this helps!

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?
ANSWER : It’s the rubbers. I had the same problem with my 137 and 141. The rubbers shrink over time and the oil never makes it up the channel. The replacement part is one piece and less prone to leaking than the original 2 piece design.

16″ Electric Chain Saw: what kind of oil is used for electric chain saw…
ANSWER : I assume you are asking about the oil for the chain. Any good quality “Bar and Chain Oil” will do fine. Do not use motor oil you use in your car engine as it will not properly lube the chain and will result in quicker dulling and early demise of the chain.

You can get the “Bar and Chain Oil” at most hardware stores or Farm Supply stores.

What type of GAS and OIL need for the chain saw?
ANSWER : Hi gjoun…
You will need “Chain and Bar” oil to lube the chain and bar. Special oil made just to lubricate the chain and bar as the chain is running.
For the engine you can use the low grade of gasoline…and 2 cycle oil.
Fuel mix…50 to 1 = 1pint of 2 cycle oil to 6 gallons of gasoline.

My husky 455 rancher is not oiling the chain properly. I have tried to clean all the oil ports on the bar and saw but it still is hardly pumping any oil to the chain. What could be the problem? How does the oiling system work?
ANSWER : The problem is very likely to be a clogged but more likely faulty internal oil pump (especially if your chainsaw is old).Hope it helps.
