STIHL MS171 - MS181 Not Oiling

STIHL MS171 - MS181 Not Oiling?

The usual and most common cause of this issue on these models is the oil hose.  It might look ok even when you remove it from the saw, but I can almost guarantee replacing the hose will cure the non oiling issue. Seen people change oil pumps and worm drives and to be honest it's rarely necessary. 

Symptoms: with the bar and chain removed and running the saw at reasonably high revs, you'll see it spitting and blowing the occasional bubble out of the oil channel.
