    Hi,
    Please can you suggest what kind of lubrication to use on the following items:
    1) pull start system (plastic to plastic)
    2) nylon oiler gear and metal pump (plastic to metal)
    thanks
    Gavin

    Im going to be honest, I never lubricate either of those parts. Every oil pump I have ever seen on is usually covered in bar oil (to a degree, nothing excessive) when I take it off the saw so I suppose they don't really need lubed. The pull starts, even though they are plastic on plastic, don't really need lubed. I have an 066 that's a perfect example of this. The saw has ALOT, and I mean ALOT of hours on it and the original pull start has only slightly began to rub grooves in itself. It takes a really large amount of wear and deformation for the actual functioning parts of the recoil to become compromised. I may be wrong, but I have never heard of anyone oiling or greasing the recoil.

    I've used a dry silicone based spray on old recoils ,only to dissuade rust or sticking spring. I don't like anything wet in the recoil.
    I've used grease on a new oil pump but haven't noticed a difference between ones I haven't.
