_
ANGER:
Failure
to
fill
the
chain
oil reservoir
will cause
irreparable
damage
to the unit. Make sure the chain oil
J
reservoir
is always filled. Always
use bar and chain oil.
I _
! WARNING:
Oil constantly
flows
from the chain oil
reservoir
to oil the saw chain. Check the chain oil level
frequently
so that it does not drop
below half full.
The guide
bar and saw chain require
lubrication
to minimize friction.
Never starve the guide bar and chain
of lubricating
oil. Running the
unit without
enough oil will decrease
cutting
efficiency,
shorten
the
life of the saw chain, cause rapid dulling
of the saw chain and
excessive
wear to the guide bar from overheating.
An insufficient
amount
of lubricating
oil is evidenced
by smoke,
guide bar
discoloration
or pitch
build-up.
Only use bar and chain oil that is formulated
to perform
over a wide
range of temperatures
with
no diluting
required
in the chain oil
reservoir. Do not use motor oil or any other petroleum-based
oil. Do
not use dirty, used or contaminated
oil. Damage may occur to the
guide bar or saw chain. Dispose
of old oil according
to federal,
state
and local regulations.
1.
Set the
unit
on a flat,
level surface.
2.
To prevent debris from entering the chain oil reservoir, use a damp
cloth to clean the chain oil reservoir cap and surrounding
area.
3.
Unscrew
the chain
oil reservoir
cap (Fig. 23).
4.
Carefully pour the oil into the chain oil reservoir. DO NOT overfill.
5.
Reinstall the chain oil reservoir
cap.
6.
Wipe up any oil that may have spilled.

ADJUSTING
THE BAR AND
CHAIN
OIL
FLOW
Bar and chain oil will slowly flow
from the chain oil reservoir
onto the
chain. Approximately
one tank of bar and chain oil is used for every
tank of fuel.
1.
To increase the oil flow, turn the automatic
oiler adjustment
screw
counterclockwise
with
a flat-head
screwdriver
(Fig. 24).
2.
To decrease
the oil flow, turn the automatic
oiler adjustment
screw
clockwise
with a flat-head
screwdriver
(Fig. 24).
