Craftsman Chain Saw C944.411371

I have a problem with chain oil leakage. It appears to come from a port behind the plate-bar mount. The port is in the housing and has nothing plugged into it. Is something missing?

Nothing plugs in behind the plate, that is where the outlet from the oil pump is and oil should come out of port in the plate when the engine is running. It is not uncommon for oil to continue to flow out when then saw is first shut off as pressure can build up in the oil tank from the engine heat. When the pressure bleeds off the oil should quit coming out.
