I’ve got a brand new Stihl ms 261 c right from the dealer out of the box new. I noticed when testing to see if the saw was oiling enough on a piece of cardboard it was leaking bar oil from the top of the chain down the side of the bar and all in the clutch cover. I usually run my saws wide open after adjusting the oiler to see the stripe of oil on a piece of cardboard or log. But this over oiling issue is new to me. I have the oil setting turned all the way down and the bar is sitting flush against the case. Has anyone had this problem?

I had a brand new saw do that, after first running when the bar + chain seated together it went away.
