SOURCE: how to remove clutch. McCulloch 438 chainsaw.

I think its an outboard clutch, use this as a guide. A YouTube video shows the procedure using a Husqvarna 350 here:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cdqkIuVNUQc
1. I cannot find an IPL for your saw, it may require special tools.
2. A length of starter cord or nylon rope may be used instead of the piston stop (retain 6" ± so you can remove it). Make sure the piston is near the top of the cylinder before feeding the cord or it can fall through the exhaust port and be cut when the piston rises.
3. It is probably a left handed thread (tighten it to loosen it).
Let us know how it worked for you. GL

Using this IPL as a guide it appears reasonably simple.
I'd ensure it is unplugged, the chain brake disengaged, and try to move the chain by hand (gloves are a good idea). If you can't move the chain or the clutch cover seems stuck use the "Service Locater". If you can move the chain; remove the clutch cover, loosen the bar and remove the chain. I see no reason the saw cannot be operated for short periods without the clutch cover to aid in isolating the problem. She will oil your mate won't be happy if you oil the table. GL

SOURCE: Bought a Homelite 14" electric chainsaw. After

I am not sure if you have figured out how to put the chain back on your saw or not, but it doesn't take long.
1. Remove the plastic yellow "T" shaped nut on the right side of the saw (towards the front of the motor housing)
2. Remove the black plastic housing that covers the rear section of the bar and chain
3. Place the chain back onto the bar making sure it is facing the correct direction.
4. Place the chain over the rear sprocket area
5. Turn the +/- yellow plastic knob (towards the back of the saw on the right side) in the - direction until the metal guide inside the plastic casing lines up with the hole in the chainsaw bar
6. Replace the black plastic housing and slightly tighten the yellow "T" shaped nut.
7. Now turn the +/- knob until the chain is tight. Once the chain is tight, turn the "T" nut until it is tight and you are ready to cut again.

SOURCE: McCulloch 14" chain saw Model CS 38 EM It quit

Most often there is a dust-oil clog in the bottom of the bar slot which closes an oil passage between the bar slot and the hole drilled half way through the side of the bar. This provides a passage between the thin shim plate with the two bar bolt holes beside the bar and through to the oil tank or pump output. You can remove the bar and chain and punch out the blockage in the bar with a paper clip if the chain is removed. Make sure the wire can be pushed from the bar slot right through the side hole in the bar. A gravity feed chainsaw should leak right out into the slot of the shim plate, a button pumper should squirt out there with the bar removed. With a button pumper you may have a tiny check valve in the line or the push button to take apart, replace the spring or unstick the ball inside the check valve. This is why they went to the gravity feed oil system which just leaks in there and gets picked up by the bottom of the links as the chain races past the passage between the bar side hole and the chain slot.

Mcculloch MS 1415 electric chain saw throws chains


I had a saw that did that and found my blade the chain runs in was bent. Another problem was the groove the chain goes in had a gouge that did not look like much but was just enough to throw the chain. Also check the drive sprocket and make sure it lines up with the groove in the blade the chain runs in.I replaced the blade and its ok now.

I need to know which oil type goes into the oil chamber for the chain on a mac 3200 gas chainsaw, not the mixture...thanks


There really is no exact type of oil that goes into the chain and bar oiler. Each manufacturer usually makes their own, but any chain and bar oil will work. It is a thicker type of oil unlike a motor oil. Just ensure that the bottle says "bar and chain" oil

I have a Mcculloch electric chain saw model 235 for which is not pumping oil onto the chain. Can you please advise where I can purchase a new oil pump Regards Darryl.


This is a full strip, and split side covers to get to the pump, this may well be a job for the local repair agent, having been apart it should then be PAT tested to ensure the double insulation it still good.

Mcculloch EM250-14 RPM Slowed suddenly


The chain must be properly sharpened to cut efficiently and the oil pump must be feeding oil to the chain/bar. Check the oiling by running the saw with the bar tip near some cardboard for a few moments--it should throw off a thin line of oil on to the cardboard. If not, remove the bar and chain and run the motor for a few moments--it should ooze oil out of a side port that exits near the drive end of the bar. If still nothing, check the oil tank filter for plugging, then the oil pump itself--it may have a plastic gear that has stripped it's teeth. Once you get oil from the side port, clean the oil passages in the drive end of the bar, and reinstall the bar and chain. Hope this helps!

Just got MCC4516F chainsaw.Used it for 30 mins. Stopped working. Chain brake does not engage or release. Chain does not move. Motor runs but will not engage to make blade move. Seems like chain brake...


You have obviously jammed or broken the chain on the inside of the motor. Take it to be repaired, or try reparing yourself by opening up the engine casing yourself.

Mac416 electric chainsaw : chain stops and rough sound coming form motor: sounds like brake is engaging whenever I put pressure on blade


I didn't see any a Mac 416 anything. Your IPL is probably here:

http://www.ordertree.com/modelinfo/McCulloch/139.59.html
Somewhere on your saw is a serial and model number on a yellow and black tag.
Most saws have a bearing near the chain drive link. That is where I'd begin my search. HTH

My McCulloch Electric Chainsaw model 450s_15 runs for a few minutes then quits. Does this saw have some type of thermal protector? If not is there any idea what may be causing this malfunction


Remove the bar and chain. Does the motor run and not quit? If not, inspect the motor for sawdust plugging the vents and check the brushes for condition and length. If runs ok, check the side port for oil coming out. If ok, clean all of the holes in the drive end of the bar including the two small holes that pass oil to the chain slot. Use compressed air if available. Also, clean the chain slot all around. Oil the sprocket tip if the bar has one. Adjust the chain so that it moves freely, but doesn't droop from the bar.

Unit works but chain stops when pressure applyed, what oil goes resevior.


Does the motor continue to run when chain stops? Electric saws usually don't have a clutch, so I would look for badly-worn chain sprocket, or a possible sheared key in the sprocket hub, or a loose mounting nut. Remove the chain and bar, try to turn the sprocket by hand (wear good gloves). There may be some type of overload clutch built into the sprocket.
