Poulan 4018 WTL with 18" bar 2006 model
« on: March 11, 2017, 08:46:16 pm »
This saw runs and cranks well but the chain oiler leaks a lot of oil when setting and when running. How can I adjust this to less oiling?

Non adjustable if I remember right.   Check your oiler line connections underneath the bar plate. 

Also when you get done running the saw open your oil cap and then put back on.

Rather have one oiling goooood then a stingy oiler like some.

Cut4fun I see what you are referring to, what do I do with that. Is there any adj. I don't see any.

Cut4fun you stated you didn't think there was any adjustment. I guess I need to look at the oiler line and make sure it is not c-racked or split and is pushed on all the way. What does taking the oil cap off and reinstalling it do. Relieve oil pressure in oil tank?
