Hi Chris!

Howdy, Aaron! 

I'm really liking this site, now I just need to get some photos and figure out how to post them.   From what I've read, putting them on PB (I have an account), then posting the link here works best.


3000, I'll see if I can get some comparison/side-by-side photos, my phtography skills are lacking, to say the least.

That's what I do.

For older saws:
Tune the H side so that it 4-strokes (burbles) at WOT unloaded and just cleans up when under load.
When you lift cutting load, the saw should immediately revert to 4-stroking.  Fine tune the transition point for the wood you're cutting.

With Photo Bucket, you just left click on the "img" icon and then right click and paste it in your post on Chainsaw Repair. It requires two open tabs in your browser. One for Chainsaw Repair and one for Photo Bucket .
We should share what we know... someone may learn...
That knowledge can live after us... and that "Pays It Forward".

Hello all...I have both a 295 and a 4620avl.  Visually they are the same, parts seem to all interchange thus far.  I got my 295 first, and absolutely LOVED it!  Had a 2150 that the bar bolts pulled out of, so I got a 4620 and switched it over to the the 3/8 lp chain and bar (off of my 2150).  Cuts like a "blanked" ape, but doesn't oil very good.  The 295 runs oil everywhere all over the bar if I let it idle very long.  The 4620 will run about 20 tanks of gas to one oil, I've tried blowing it out and running some thinned oil through it, I guess the next option would be a new oiler?  Gears are both good, just don't know if anyone else has had trouble with this "cheesy" type of oiler.

No 1st hand experience. But I have  read that the 295 saws had stingy oiler issues.    Maybe one of the guys here in the know have a fix.

I have a couple of 295's and about three 260's.   I believe they use the same oiler.    If they do not work I just replace them.   They are not expensive and very easy to replace.   

I would however pull the old oiler out and give it a good look and look inside the tank also to see if there could be anything in there to slow the flow of oil.

Thanks, yeah I've taken the oiler out and blown air through the port.  It's kinda weird because I can take the oil canal plate off and blow air into the oiler and it flows like a river...Then put it all together, and nothing (shouldn't say nothing, I'm still getting oil, just not very much).  I've looked inside the tank, looks good, but there is some sort of springy dingy thing where the port is and I can't quite grasp how to get that all out of there to give the tank a good flushing (any ideas?).  Anyhow, thanks again, I bought my first Poulan 11 years ago, and I love them!  I've bought two others since, didn't have trouble (other than the bar bolts on the 2150) until this one!  They have good motors, just a few little engineering flaws that kinda gives them a "cheap" label.

I think because it has been awhile since I had one apart, that the springy dingy thing you refer to is the oil filer pickup.   If that is not attached to your pickup line or if you have not cleaned it to see if it is plugged up that could be your problem. 
Do you have a parts list for the saw.

I've got an exploded view pulled up in another tab, just trying to figure out how to get the pickup out of the tank.  I've had the oiler out several times, but all before I had seen the diagram.  I guess that I'll just have to dive in head-first and find out.  Thanks.

Poulan Pro 4620AVX PP4620AVX just dropped off.   New bar appears on saw with no chain. New chain in a box. 

Has that weird tool less bar adjuster on the clutch cover. 

Hope it is a easy one to go through. I'm whooped at the moment.
