Husqvarna 357 XP leaking bar oil
« on: March 20, 2017, 06:55:15 pm »
my boss brought me his 357 husky to sharpen a couple chains and he said it just started leaking bar oil from the oiler adjustment screw, nearly a constant drip he says. was wondering if anyone has seen this before? I'll be looking into it later, just thought I'd try to get some advice/knowledge first.

Had the same problem with 2 346xp's also, dealer put " a kit" in both and problem has gone away, I suspect it was an oil pump unit or a seal? All I got told you need a kit, the price and 30 minutes to do each saw.
hope it helps

Maybe I should of mentioned that was $28.75 CDN[ tax in :) ], per saw installed, in case you were wondering if the saw was worth extra cost.
