did you say you changed the bar? could the oil holes on the bar be in the wrong place?

Yes, the bar was changed for a brand new one, the same as the original one. The original one got damaged when the chain derailed

This afternoon I will change the pump outlet seal with a new one, as Spudulike suggested, then I'll run the saw. If it still leaks, then obviously the pump is damaged and I'll replace it. Thanks to all for your help and advice.

Well....what happened? Would be good to know!

I find that to be bad manners  Steve , When the OP does not give any feedback .

Just a bit off when anyone asks for help with an issue, nothing personal but it took a lot of advice and then...nothing, especially when the issue has been a long running one.

It is always good to know the advice is good and has solved the issue but hey ho....it is a modern world and the manners my mother drummed in to me seem to mean less and less as time goes on!

That's the way of the world now unfortunately, there are a few good people and lots of nobs, a bit like Arbtalk[emoji23]🤪[emoji23]🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️

Apologies everybody - I got severely side-tracked. Well I did what I said I was going to do and that is buy a new pump and fit it. I started the machine and got the same result - no change! So an arborist friend suggested I take it to somebody in our area who "knows his chainsaws." He ran the saw and also cut some wood with it and checked the oil situation after that and concluded that the amount of oil  coming from the saw was no more than he would expect. He said the chainsaw is running normally. 

 

So there you have it. Before the chain derailed, there is no way it chucked oil over my boots and clothes as it does now. Maybe its got something to do with the fact that lately I have been running it for the purpose of checking it without cutting wood. I'll see how it does next time I use it.

 

Many thanks for the input I got
