    I like Husky saws but I have found that the oilers on that series of saw with .325 X 50 guage bars and chains clog very very easily. All it takes is to cut one piece of rotten wood where you get saw dust instead of big clean chips and it gets stopped up with oil caked sawdust around the sprocket and in the bar. A dull chain will do the same if if makes sawdust instead of chips.
    Make sure you are using 10 wt or winter bar oil. When you take off the sprocket cover to clean it all out make sure you take the bar off too and drag a stiff wire thru the chain groove on the bar to get all the crud out. I use a wire from an old chimney brush. Then make sure the oil port holes from the side of the bar up into the center of the groove are clear. Clean it often. As soon as the chain starts to run a little dry take it apart and clean it. It is a pia but the only way I know.
    I convert all my saws to 3/8 X 58 guage they don't seem to clog nearly as easily. The groove is fatter and the chips bigger.

    I wonder why does dealer say it is OK ??? Must be frustrating.
    If it drips on your foot you must have a leak. If you took it apart to expose the oil pump you would be able to see where it is dripping. Probably the hose where it press against the tank opening behind the oil pump. Try to reseat it and use a smiggen of Gasoila pipe dope around the hole. Here is a good parts guide. Look at clutch and oil pump section.

    Modern saws do not visibly oil a lot anymore. The real test is to see that you go through about 1/2 - 3/4 tank of oil per tank of gas (on a saw that size).

    the otherized husquvarna dealer says it ok the oiler works fine , witch it dose. i took it apart checked to see if it seats right and it looks good the oil comes out the proper spot just dosnt get to the blade or the blade isnt pulling it to the tip. i just took it apart again and the hole in the blade were the oil goes in is very small if im stuck with the saw i mite try to mill the hole a litter bigger to get more oil in the blade if the blade is not hardend. tu for the diagram.

    I used to sell chainsaws, and ones I sold had only two small holes for bar oil to lube the chain. The chain dogs (the part that is in the bar) would get a small amount of lube and it would simply drag it around the bar. It doesn't take much, and it doesn't take a whole series of evenly disbursed oil ports, etc.
