I don't have a diagram or part number but the procedure to get to the oiler pump is about the same for most saws. Remove the sprocket and clutch, then it's right there and held in place with 2 (sometimes 3) screws. There's a rubber grommet type seal where it fits over the hole going to the oil tank and on that old of a saw there is probably a rubber tube running from the pump to where it runs out to the bar.

Having an air compressor is extremely handy since there will be lots of old oily crud to blow away (wear old clothes). I usually spin the clutch off with an impact wrench as well instead of messing around with pulling the spark plug and using a piston stop. Keep in mind that the clutch is left hand thread.

There are several things it could be, but the pumps themselves rarely go bad. The plastic drive gear or output hose are two of the common failures.

Dave, I have created an album (028) in my  gallery showing the 028 oil pump, other parts and parts list with part numbers.

I don't know if this link works, but give it a try:
https://forestryforum.com/gallery/thumbnails.php?album=1999

If it doesn't work you can try and access the album " 028"

Hope this helps.

Joe

Dave, inside the oil res. is a pickup tube with a screen in the end of it - check that too -

I really loved those 028's probably had 4 or 5 of them, but my MS 280 is the bomb.

woodmills,what's the difference between 028 's and 280's ?what are the cc's ?
I have an 026 and it is a "killer saw". I also have an 044 and it's great too, but I tend to reach for the 026 more often than not.
   Thanks

not sure about engine size but the ms280 is much up dated more modern, lighter and faster with better air filter, carb and caps.
