Chainsaw Clutch I have pulled a lot of clutches off over the years and generally you can just use a socket or a punch, but with this one there does not seem to be anywhere to actually grip the clutch. The clutch is the same as on a Shindaiwa 377. Any help would be great,

How do you change the clutch?

Remove the side casing. (bar side)
Take off bar and chain.
Remove E-clip holding the clutch drum on.
Remove clutch drum and needle cage bearing.
This should expose the clutch.
Remove spark plug.
Use a piston stop to stop the piston rising, Sometimes a knotted piece of pull cord fed into the cylinder is just as good.
Turn the clutch clockwise with a socket to unscrew.

To put clutch back on turn anticlockwise till piston cycles back and hits the piston stop again and tighten. Replace spark plug and clutch drum, bearing, bar and chain and side casing.

Cannot remove wornclutch

You need to block the cylinder to stop the piston rising.
I prefer to use a piece of pull cord with 3 or 4 knots along 4'' of it. Its safer than using plastic piston blocks that can break inside the cylinder.

1.Remove the spark plug.
2.Insert knotted pull cord into the cylinder (be careful it doesnt exit the exhaust port)
3.Turn clutch clockwise until piston is blosked by the cord.
4.Place a socket on the centre of the clutch and turn clockwise.

The clutch should just unbolt off the crank shaft. reverse the process when putting on the new one. :)

Instruction to remove and replace cage bearing on husqvarna 055 chainsaw.

I guess we are talking the bearing in the clutch drum, to replace this you need to remove the side cover nuts and remove the side cover/chainbrake, make sure the brake is de activated by pulling the hand guard fully back to the top handle before removing it, the clutch has a 15mm centre nut, jar the clutch off against the compression of the saw with a suitable socket and speed brace, if you have an impact wrench this will remove the clutch in seconds, the clutch is just spun onto the crank with a left hand thread, turn clockwise to remove, once off the drum and bearing will just come off the crank for replacment.

There should be no problem removing the chain brake as long as you have de activated it by pull the handguard fully back to the top handle , there is a special tool to remove the clutch part no , 530031112 this fits into the cut a ways in the clutch and you jar it off with a 19mm socket.

I need to change the clutch drum

Don't know about your particualr saw, but general instructions are : take the bar cover off, take the bar and chain off, put your piston stop in, remove the clutch nut by unscrewing it clockwise, remove the shoes and springs from inside the drum, and pouit them in the new one, replace it all. If you don't have a piston stop you can pull the starter cord all the way out and stuff some of it into the spark plug hole to stop the piston moving when you turn the clutch nut.

Clutch cover wont go back on

Your cover probably won't go back on because the kickback/chain brake is on. Pull the handle on the cover back until you hear a click, the it will go on. As for removing the clutch, you need Poulan tool # 530031112 and an impact witha 3/4 socket. If you're just trying to reset chain break, removing clutch is not necessary, just pull back on handle as I said before.
