I have a Poulan 1950 LE Woodshark that is not oiling the bar and chain.
I drained out the oil, checked the screen, (which was clean) took off
the side cover that holds the bar and shot WD-40 thru the hose's that
run back to the reservoir to make sure they weren't blocked. (WD-40
I also cleaned the oil holes and the grove in the bar.
Then I reassembled the saw, filled it with oil, ran it, with no signs
of oil flowing onto the bar/chain.
Then I ran it with the side cover off and w/o the bar, no oil flowing
from the port/tube.
The saw is only a yr old and I've only made about 100 cuts with it,
what could be the problem?
It's obvious to me that the oil isn't being pumped, is this a common
problem with Poulan or did I just get a lemon?
And, is this an easy fix?
