I am a brand new member.
I bought a new bar, chain sprocket, and chain for my Stihl 046 and installed them. I am now having a problem of lots of chain oil dripping and running down in the area where the oil is supposed to enter the chain, when I run the saw. I adjusted the screw on the bottom of the saw to the position where least oil should enter the bar. When I do that it basicially does not throw oil off the chain like it should, but the oil still runs down, as before I adjusted the screw.
I took off the thin plate where the oil runs through to the bar and cleaned it and that area of the saw. The plate does not appear to be bent, etc, but I am wondering if for some reason it is not sealing to the bar as it should. Any thoughts would be welcomed.
