I do hope that someone can help, I recently purchased a new Stihl Ms 391 chainsaw, I own quite a few saws, but bought this one new as I use it for cutting larger logs, and wanted some thing reliable. My issue is that the oiler is hardly working, I strip and clean the saw removing the bar and chain every time that I use it , I have adjusted the oiler to maximum, but still very little oil is getting to the bar and chain, thanks David.

Leave off the bar and chain and run the saw, you can watch the oil flow and go from there. It is the same oil pump as is on the ms290/390, btw.

Thanks for the reply, much appreciated, I am going to do as you suggested, when I use the saw the oiler adjustment doesn't seem to make much difference, my other saws oilers all give plenty oil on adjustment, will post when I give it a try, thanks regards David.
