The 261 has a common fault where the shaft wares and the bearing don't sit right. Mine has it, the saw is now retired

Just remove the side cover and see how wobbly the clutch drum is! Ultimately the oiler will stop working if left!

took it back to the dealers and got the needle bearing fixed, they said that was the problem, hopefully it will start behaving itself .

thanks for your help.
