Hello d56h and Welcome to the Do It Yourself Web Site and for posting your question in my Small Engine forum.

Most likely the orifice is missing from the oiler. Remove the bar and cleanout the oiler hole. The oil discharge hole should be very tiny.

You may have to remove the engine cover and check the hose connection to the oiler hole. It may have vibrated loose.

Also check the air vent hole in the oil tanks vent cap. The cap may contain a rubber pulsating diaphram which could be stuck open.

Then check the tanks inlet tube from the crankcase. Pressure from the crankcase goes into the tank which pushes out the oil. The orifice or diaphram there may be the problem.

That's about all I can come up with at this moment.

Good Luck,
