poulan pro chainsaw model 295

I have a poulan pro saw model 295 that I bought about 10 years ago. I have always had problems with the bar oil leaking out somewhere. Has anyone had this problem and what is the fix for it?

I don't know the solution, but I've got a 15-year old Husky 36 with the same problem. I store it on its side or make sure the bar oil is almost gone when I shut it down. It seems like it should be simple to find where the oil comes out onto the chain, but I went all over the thing when I had to rebuild the carb awhile back, and never did find anything I could say for sure was the chain oiler. The manual is no help either.

It's the nature of the beast. I've never had much luck successfully stopping bar oil leaks on most of the poulan saws. Most saws will seep a little oil over time anyway.
