Chain saw - bar not getting oil
My neighbor dropped a large black maple last week (40"+). I went over to give him a hand.
I have an old Craftman that an elderly gent gave me 20 years ago. Haven't run it in years, but it started right up. With a 20" bar on it, it's a beast. But I doesn't move much oil onto the bar (I had to stop and squirt oil on it every several minutes).
The gas is now drained, and most of the bar oil. I was thinking of putting some solvent (paint thinner?) in the oil tank, and let it drip down to the pores that feed the bar.
I'll get a few pics of the saw later today.
