Question about Makita DCS51018 18" 45cc Chain Saw 2 Cycle
What tool do i need to remove the clutch plate from a makita 340 dcs? I can get the nut from the bolt by rotating it clockwise, but then, the clutch plate moves in syncronicity with the threaded shaft, so i have no way of moving the threaded clutch plate in the opposite direction of the threaded shaft, in order to remove it. I am in north east canada. my email is firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you bobcatman. i am assuming that left hand thread translates to moving the clutch plate clockwise in order to remove. I sure appreciate the full explanation.

You need a piston stop to stop the engine from rotating,then with a clutch tool you can spin off the clutch,most of them are left had thread.if you don't have a clutch tool you can use a hammer and punch on one of the main arms of the clutch itself.for a piston stop you can use a piece of 1/4"rope.put the piston at the bottom of the stroke and stuff the rope in the sparkplug hole,this stops the piston from reaching it's full stroke.
