    Hmmm. I have the 450 and this is what I would do:

    Make sure that the rubber seal on the side of the saw that moves oil to the bar isn't torn or clogged.

    Empty the oil tank and see if sawdust or dirt has gotten in there and clogged up the pump intake.

    Good luck!

    There is a strainer on the oil tank's pickup rubber tube-same as in the fuel tank. I found a nice sized crack in the rubber fuel tube at the strainer's neck. Pull it out intact with a pair of long needle nosed pliers and have a look.

    If it's a new saw ,or bar , look at the oil hole in the bar as well as looking at what the others have said . Had a 372 that came with the hole plugged .
