OK I looked at and see that there shoule be a hex nut on the side where the clutch is. It doesn't specify whether it is left or right hand thread. but what I used to do is we have a plastic plug to put in the cylinder to stop piston from moving and then putting a ratchet on the hex nut. without the plug you can try an impact wrench to BUMP the nut in forward and reverse to remove it. Make sure the switch is off before attempting either action. You can look at the manual or parts explosion at the site I listed

Make sure the fuel filter is indeed attached to the fuel line in the tank and pushed down to the bottom of the tank.

SOURCE: I have inherited my dad's

Oil to gas mixture is more a function of the oil than the saw. If you use high quality oil like Echo brand, (or Stihl or Husqvarna) you'll be fine at 50:1. If the saw is older than 15 or so years you'd be a little safer running 32:1. It'll just smoke a little more at 32:1. I wouldn't worry about it too much.

SOURCE: how do I remove the clutch assembly from an Echo Cs-400 chainsaw

Turns out there is a reverse thread on the clutch hub (the "Y" shaped piece). I poked around some on the web and got some ideas, but they called for a special tool that it made by echo that fits in around the legs of the hub, and once you've prevented the crankshaft from turning by blockiing the piston, it turns (clockwise) with a wrench. I didn't have that tool, nor did I want to spend $19.95 to buy one, so I stuck a plastic toothbrush handle into the exhaust port to block the piston from moving, and used an open-end wrench just wide enough to fit over one of the legs in the "Y" shaped clutch hub. Then I took a large crescent wrench and closed it over the open-end wrench, right down next to the hub. So, if the saw is lying on its side, with the clutch facing up, the open-end wrench is inserted straight down straddling one leg of the clutch hub, and the crescent wrench is positioned horizontally gripping the bottom end of the open ended wrench to provide a "handle" for leverage. Holding the saw securely somehow (I used my elbow), left hand gripping the open-end wrench and pushing it down into the clutch so it won't slip out, I used my right hand to provide the clockwise motion on the crescent wrench as a lever/handle. Clutch popped free after a few seconds of pressure.

Hope this experience helps someone.

SOURCE: ECHO CS 3000 chainsaw-while idling, shuts off if held on an angle

The idle speed screw may be set too low--adjust so that the chain stops moving, but the engine keeps running. Drain the fuel tank and see if the filter falls to the lowest point of the tank whatever the position. If it doesn't, replace the fuel line hooked to the filter as it may have lost flexibility. Hope this helps!

How to reassemble chain brake on an Echo CS-350T that jammed and was pulled apart by someone else?

From what I see you will need assemble thing leaving the main spring and brake cover off. Before attempting to put the main back in install a clutch drum inside the brake band. Then you slip on the main spring and pry the end on with a flat blade screw driver. Now install in the cover for the spring and brake. Reset the chain brake and remove the drum.

Now install the chain brake on the saw and test. Do not trip the chain brake without the clutch drum in place. If these are anything like the Husqvarna version after they get worn they will get where it is nearly impossible to reset.

Clutch removal tool?

not recommended, if you use a impact the end of the crank and bolts and nuts are small you can snap off the bolt or worse snap the crank end
also many drums are held on with a snap ring and then the clutch can
be held in place with a both or nut on the end and there may be set screws on some models as well
as in most saws the drum and sprockets are what wear first, normally you can just replace the drum and sockets before you have to replace the entire clutch assembly, so if you have never replaced the drum or sprokets before once you remove the drum if the clutch spring is not broke, just replace the drum and sprocket will save you a bunch of money

Need new piston

Hello Carl;
You also asked about clutch removal, this should help.

  1. Check the IPL for your saw to see if any special tools are needed. Poulan (Craftsman, Jonsered, Husky) clutch removal tool part number 530031112 if needed, is under $5 from many sources (look at the visible area between the weights if 2 small round sockets are visible you need the tool).
  2. There are metal piston stops available, when square (almost never) with the piston top these work well, if not square they have been known to punch through the piston. I suggest a length of nylon rope (nothing left behind) be used instead of the piston stop (retain 6" ± so you can remove it). Make certain the piston is near the top of the cylinder before feeding the cord or it can fall through the exhaust port and damage the piston as it rises.
  3. 99.9% of clutches have left hand threads (tighten it to loosen it). If a finger nail held in the thread and rotated clockwise comes off the shaft it is a left hand thread. If it pinches against the clutch it is a right hand thread.

If you have more questions or need additional help please reply below and I will get back to you. HTH & Good Luck.
Thank You for using FixYa.
