Pioneer chain saw lubrication.

My father recently gave me a pioneer chain saw that has not been used for 15 years. I think the model is a 3270sc with easy arc starting. i was just wondering if anyone is familiar with the way the chain gets lubricated and how to check if it is recieving the right amount of lubrication. I removed the side chain cover and all I see is a little piece of black hose sitting about 1/8 to 1/4 of an inch away from the chain. How does the oil make it to the chain? Thanking you in advance

pioneers are gravity-fed - it just trickles thru the hose and drips on the chain (sorta like a harley:). if you hold the chain by a log and rev it a little, you should see a spray of oil droplets on the log. that means the oiler's working right, you just checked it.

A tank of oil to a tank of fuel. I have been told by several chanisaw repair shops that this is a rule of thumb for chain lubrication on chainsaws.
