Re: Oil pump seal on Husky 154

After paying NZ$15 total to get that little piece of tube I wish I myself had improvised something.  Perhaps got a tiny free sample of tube from the SuperCheapAuto shop,  or just put a soft washer under the old tube to make it seal.

Maybe the old tube was just shrunk?  It's probably over 20 years old.

I was happily testing the saw,  and the chain tensioner screw dropped out the front.  The retaining clip was missing.  Probably missing for a while.   I had just replaced a very worn rim sprocket and the chain tensioner was sitting even more to the rear than normal.  The thread on the screw was slightly freer back there and the darn thing just vibrated out.

There is a 254 for sale here that may have much less mileage than my 154,  as a long term do up project.  But I sort of like this old saw.  A couple years ago it seemed to freeze on a starting pull.  I thought I had seized it somehow.  Looking closer,  a tiny piece of metal was jamed on the edge of (from memory) the exhaust port.  Cleaned it,  reassembled it and went back to cutting the Manuka firewood (about as dense as real mahogany).

Cheers,
Fingers crossed all good now.
