Chain Saw 20″ Bar
Experienced gardeners share their insights in answering this question :
You provide no model or serial numbers, start with the IPL for your saw. It can be found here:
Enter the 3 digit model number (no XPs, Es, just the numbers)
Serial number decode – useful when downloading IPLs and Manuals
06 = year produced – 2006 (single digit before 2000)
15 = week produced – March
00198 = 198th unit Husky produced that week
Oil System Plugged.
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. If yes reassemble your saw. If no, continue with 2.
Work your way through the linkage 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. Please see the IPL to aid in oiler component identification. Most Huskys have an outboard clutch we will presume this one does too. Use this a guide for clutch removal:

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,
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 starter cord or nylon rope 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. Everyone I have ever removed had a left handed thread (tighten it to loosen it).
The clutch is under the clutch cover, Watch the video.
I hope this is most helpful. If you need additional help you can reply below and I will gladly assist you further. Good Luck, it is not as difficult as it appears.
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 :
But how does a chainsaw oil pump work? The crankshaft drives the pump, which draws oil from the tank and pushes it onto the guide bar via the outlet hole. The movement of the chain then distributes the oil along the entire length of the guide bar.
Chain Brake: Located on the top handle of the chainsaw, the chain brake is used to stop the chainsaw chain from rotating around the bar. There are two ways to engage the chain brake: by pushing the handle forward, or by force of inertia that occur when the saw kicks back.
An outer drum that turns freely – This drum includes a sprocket that engages the chain. When the drum turns, the chain turns. A center shaft attached directly to the engine`s crankshaft – If the engine is turning, so is the shaft.
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.
It is generally located inside the lower part of the engine, usually below and/or to one side of the crankshaft.
Oil pumps are usually either inside the oil pan and driven by a camshaft or outside the pan and driven by a crankshaft. When those engine parts start moving, the pump starts working at the same time to pump oil to reduce friction and wear between moving parts and prevent the engine from seizing.
All chainsaws must have chain brakes that comply with ISO 6535:2008 Portable chain-saws — Chain brake performance.
Front hand guard: The front hand guard is a paddle-like device, located ahead of the front (top) handle of the chainsaw such that it stops an operator`s left hand from coming in contact with the chain if this hand slips off the handle.
The clutch pedal is a method of leverage to disengage drive from the engine to transmission from within the vehicle. The pedal translates a parabolic swing of the clutch pedal into a linear movement.
When you pull the clutch lever in, the action causes the compressed springs on the pressure plate to retract. As a result, the friction and steel plates which are forced together separate and begin to rotate independently, disconnecting the engine from the transmission system.
A clutch is an absolute necessity on a chainsaw. Without one, the chain sprocket would be connected directly to the motor, and the chain would turn even when the engine is idling.

The tines on a honda f220 always spin and don’t change speed when clutch is engaged but speed up when throttle is increased. Adjusted cable with no luck.
I believe that unit utilizes a centrifical clutch. try decreasing the idle speed and see if the tines stop. They should then engage as throttle is increased.

Not getting oil to chain….oiler working could bar be bad?

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.
