    I've got a Stihl ms290 that's blowing oil everywhere while running. It's dripping pretty bad and blowing oil out the top front of the clutch cover. The inside of the clutch cover is extremely wet after running a minute or so. Any body experienced this ?

    Are your bar oil holes clear? Is it correct bar ? Try blowing out the bar oil holes.

    Yes sir, all is clear on the bar. It's the right bar for it although it's a little old.

    Take off the bar and chain, and start the saw, and watch the oil flow.

    It comes out of the oil output hole like normal . Not pouting out or anything.
