Everything seems in place, so now I am wondering if this is how much oil CS-590 saws throw out. Is it the norm?

Looks just like the amount of bar oil supplied by poulan 365 I have been running the last few days. Even comes out of the area between the clutch cover and where crankcase meets.

You might be worry about nothing.

You do have a inner bar plate that goes over this right?

Yes, the inner plate is there. I took it off just to get the pictures.
Oil comes out everywhere but like I said not on the bar and chain itself. My 490 makes a perfect line of oil under and in front of the bar.
If I tip the saw/bar vertically down then the bar oil starts to touch the muffler and I have smoke everywhere.

Should be doing like your 490 IMO.

I dont own or work on  590  to know.  Someone here in another 590 thread was talking about a 590 oiling. Search for that thread in this board.

The other thread/post was about it smoking while cutting, ended up being a dull chain.
I
 dropped it off to the local dealer today, for him to check and advise if repairs are warranted..

Wonder about your oil line connections to oiler etc.

Are you sure that the bar is the correct mount, and the oil output from the oiler is hitting the oiler hole of the bar properly?

One thing to remember is that if you are running the saw out of the wood it will throw oil all over the place the chips help to soak up any extra oil. The fine saw dust also soaks up the oil as well.

Open up the oiler hole in the bar with a carbide bit.  Make it twice the size it is now.
