    Mcculloch maccat excessive bar oil

    I just got a free mcculloch maccat 38cc 18" bar chainsaw. I disassembled and cleaned every nook and cranny, replaced all fuel lines and rebuilt the carb. It runs like new but seems to be pouring out oil from the bar oiler. Is there any way to adjust this?

    Short answer is no. the oil pump runs off the flywheel end of the engine, and even pumps when the chain isn't turning.
