My chainsaw is leaking bar oil

I have a Craftsman chainsaw, Turbo, 2.5 ci in, model 358.356242 that is leaking bar oil.
It started about a month or so ago and is making a mess now.
I asked for help, with the tech support and the lady said something about clearing the vent, on the
flywheel side of the engine.
She suggested, that the oil vent might be clogged.
I was trying to find that vent.
She sent a diagram and said it was no.36, but I couldn't find it.
It looked a diagram of the other side.
I took the covers off of my chainsaw
Here are pictures of both sides.
Do I remove anything else to be able to see the vent, from the starter pully side?
I couldn't see a vent, on the fly wheel side.
Is there something else, that I should remove?
Also what do I use to clear the vent and how do
I use it?
Or would you suggest something else?
Thank You, Bert
This is the first time, that I've asked a question and I'm not sure where to find your reply.
