You rinse the tank thoroughly already, make sure nothing's blocking the pick-up? I like to add some gas to the oil tank heat things up and create some pressure before tearing into things. Then dump the gas out and back to straight oil of course. :/:

Pm me with your email and I'll send you the parts list. It shows a complete breakdown so you can see what goes where.

Looks like a lot of lttle thingies.
Lot of expensive little thingies for what they are.

I wonder what a MS 200 would cost if you bought each individual piece and made a saw out of all the parts. If it is anything like a car it would triple the cost.

Anyone remember Jennes? He worked in a Stihl factory in Germany. I always wondered if he could pilfer his way to building a complete saw.

I might add that these little gems are also a royal pain the butt to wrench on .Although not as bad as most little saws.

As a general rule in my little part time working on Stihl saws more times that not if the oiler is not working properly it is something on the suction side of the system.Depending on the saw it could be a gasket,cracked pick up line etc.Some times if you run part of a tank full of kerosine or diesel through the system they clear up but not always.

You take the chain off T .You just run the light distilate through the oiling system in an attempt to get the funky out,if there is any. If you want to run the chain,use auto tranny fluid .Just some old down on the farm type stuff.;)

Rip it of and clean it out properly!

If needed clean with gas in there, but it is likly clogged in tube and if it doesn't oil at all there will be no flow to rince anything out.

I take the pump off, spin the gear, clear out any crap in the gear threads, blow out the line.

Sometimes I soak the pump in engine degreaser.
