    I cleaned it,blew it out,even pored the cheap runny oil out and replaced it with stihl oil.Won't even oil with the bar off.Doesn't have the lube adjust like the bigger saws.What do you think? p.s. at least with the lighter oil it was wet, not since i changed it. : :realmad:

    is it under warranty?? take it back to the dealer to get it fixed something is wrong what kind of cheap runnie oil did you use? that could be the cause of the pump not working use only stihl oil in a stihl

    I bought this saw at a garage sale and it had chain oil in it called "Stampede" The half full bottle came with it. It's just not thick like stihl oil is.In the oil tank there is a rubber coated spring with a bulb on the end of it that does move around. Is that part of the pump? and is it supposed to run off the motor?

    I found a screen on the end of that bulb in oil tank and nothing seems to be pluged.Do I have to split the case to get to pump? Please tell it's easier than that. :cry:

    way easer than that all you have to do is pull the sprocket off then the clutch it has left handed threads so be. aware pull the spark plug out and run a
    piece of recoil rope down the hole to lock up the engine.the oil pump is right behind the clutch good luck

    had an 025 do this. As described above remove the oil pump. It is a pretty small piece. A gear on one end, and two holes on the sides. Sawdust was clogging mine, not much but enough to stop oil flow. When reinstalling there is a 'notch' for alignment purposes.
