Q:

Craftsman 18 inch chainsaw

A:

Thank you for your question on the oil usage for the bar and chain oil.

The rule of thumb is by the time you run out of gas the oil chamber is running out of oil.

If the vent was clogged it would not feed near as much oil out onto the bar and chain because it would cause an air lock.

The vent is there to relief the draw from the oil pump and will has to breathe to make that system correctly.

The vent is build into the case of the saw and is located near the ignition module and is a sintered brass filter (about the size of a pencil eraser) with a rubber duck bill on the inside of the oil tank.

The fan on the flywheel will keep this area pretty clean and so I do not think that is the issue.

If you are concerned with the pooling of oil after you put the saw up then open the cap on the oil tank and re-close it and put some newspaper or paper towels in the case to absorb the oil residue that will accumulate on the bar and chain and cover while using the saw and will drip down into the storage case when not in use.

Please let me know if you are using more oil than I described above.

Thank you for your comments on the chain saw problem. Yes this saw does have a gear drive oil pump and has a pre-measured amount it will dispense with the rpm of the engine. The faster the engine goes the more oil it will pump to a point. As far as the air pressure in the fuel tank there is also return line that comes back from the carburetor through the primer bulb for the fuel to return to the tank. And yes I do agree that as the saw warms up the tank will have some pressure and some of this is from the vibration from the engine running and creating bubbles in the fuel tank. I have started saws or trimmers and ran them for less than thirty seconds and had pressure with the release of the gas cap. I appreciate your comments and information on the possible problem with the chain saw. If the customer is using a tank of oil to one tank of gas then there is no problem. It will be interesting to see what the customer say's about really how much oil he is using. Thank you Biguggy and I will be looking forward to your comments and information on other items as well. It is great to have people way in on our comments. Thank you. Sam A.

Thank you for your question.

I will be happy to assist you. I have looked up the model numbers you have submitted. I am sorry the snow blade will not fit your tractor. The reason is the tractor does not have the front hanger brackets for the blade. The blade I show for your tractor is 486.24414.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.
