SOURCE: Can't get clutch plate off of makita 340 dcs

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.

sincerely

Strip the chuck assy and see if you can pry the broken bit forward. If it is really stuck then the front Assy will need to be stripped.

My Makita 3.0ah cordless drill does not drive anything when I put pressure on it. Would the clutch be worn and if so is it easy to repair?


Clutch is part of the transmission assy - yes it is about the only thing that it can be causing your issue. It is a fairly inexpensive and easy fix on Makita - the worst part is removing the chuck.

MAKITA DCS 341 SAW IS NOT OILING BLADE-HOW DO I REPAIR?


I was able to find an OM but no IPL and it is not a current model. With no IPL as a disassembly guide I cannot get into specifics. Makita is the parent company of Dolmar (German and actual manufacturer). A local Dolmar dealer may be able to help. You might also find help and guidance here:

A large international collection of chainsaw enthusiasts dealers (more than one Dolmar dealer on hand) and mechanics.

I found a current DCS34-16 IPL here:
http://www.makita.ca/index2.php?event=tool&id=270&catid=40

it has an inboard clutch so I fear it will be of little value.

Oil System Plugged.
  1. Remove the clutch cover, bar, and chain, clean the bar groove, any holes and passages on the rear of the bar (both sides, consider rotating the bar), if equipped with a sprocket nose ensure it rotates easily at least one complete revolution. Clean the saw oiler hole and channel. Insert a blunted, hooked piece of wire through the oil filler hole and pull the hose in the oil tank out. Pay attention to the screen or filter on the free end (clean or replace, difficult to determine serviceability). Start the saw and see if it oils when revved up (oozes down side of saw). If yes reassemble your saw. If no, continue with 2.
  2. Work your way through the linkage (use IPL to identify components and locations) cleaning and replacing any defective parts as you go. Carefully check the hoses for cracks especially at bends and connections. If equipped with an oil pump it is usually behind the clutch (clutch is a left handed thread). Please make extensive notes & some digital pictures will help during reassembly.
If it does not oil on completion of 1 it is most likely a bad oiler or worm gear (see IPL that I cannot find). The folk at ArboristSite are very helpful. That is where I would go at the unsuccessful completion of 1. HTH

Can't get clutch plate off of makita 340 dcs


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.
