SOURCE: I have a Craftsman 14" chain saw model 358.355141.

A link to a PDF OM for your saw follows.

A link to an IPL (exploded parts list) follows:

I think the Poulan equivalent saw is a "PP200". The likely problem is the clutch faces are abraded away (engine print-item 19).
CM Small Engines have a matching part number (530069193) in stock but it it identified as a clutch washer (530069197), I think it indeed the clutch mechanism pictured and suggest you call them.

You might try cleaning the clutch faces as well.

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. Most (99.9%) 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.

SOURCE: I have a craftsman 16" 36cc chain saw. Engine

First thing is make sure chain brake is not engaged is so equipped. Next make sure that chain tensensioner is not to tight to allow chain to rotate. I wouuld remove bar and chain from saw and spray both several times with WD-40 and work chain link by link until they all move freely.Clean and lube guide channel on bar and make sure that bar is not dented or badly rusted.If all else fails replace bar and chain. Good luck and thank you.

I am confused. Is it a sears saw or a poulan saw? If it is a sears saw you go to sears for the parts. If it is a poulan saw find a shop that repairs chain sawsand take it there. They will be able to find the parts you need possibly in stock.

The saw does not cut well at all. I've sharpened the blade and even purchase a new one. Still, I can barely cut through a 6" limb. Ideas?


It could be the clutch. If the chain slows down and the engine does not the clutch is slipping and needs to be replaced.

Craftsman chain saw repair manual


Its not hard! You need to purchase a tool that goes into your spark plug hole. You remove the spark plug, put this tool in the hole. This tool stops the piston from moving so you can remove the nut holding the clutch. The clutch is what the drive sprocket is attached to. The drive sprocket is where the chain fits on at the engine side. remive the bar and chain and you will see the clutch. Use the tool and then use a wrench that fits the nut on the clutch. be sure you know which way removes the nut. It could be opposite of what you think. some are left hand threads some are not. I think these are not. After you replace the clutch be sure to lube the clutch bearings. Most people don't know this! use a grease gun made for saws and insert it into the hole at the end of the shaft that holds the clutch. Also next time your saw cant saw through a piece of wood, do not give it gas to make the chain try and move.This is what burns up the clutch! If your saw stalls out, and you press the throttle and it still doesn't turn. Always allow the chain to move, pull back and lift up on the saw slightly to get the chain moving again.

Diagram of fuel line for Craftsman 16" chainsaw


Your saw is a Poulan. Try converting the cc to a model number. A 2.2cc Craftsman is often a Poulan model 2200. go to this link and find something that appears the same under (POULAN-WEED-EATER).
http://www.ordertree.com/cms/illustrated-parts-list/9788.html
The IPL will help. Pay attention to the year there is a different area for older saws.
For a current saw Craftsman should have something available.

Craftsman chain saw only runs short time


Craftsman is made by Poulan.
How old is the saw? Have you checked for split fuel hoses? Change the cc to model number (2.2cc Craftsman is often Model 2200 Poulan) and try to find an IPL http://www.ordertree.com/cms/illustrated-parts-list/9788.html. This will show hose routing. As a last resort you may try the "Chainsaw forum here http://www.arboristsite.com/. These are good guys but you will be flamed for buying a homeowner saw.
