I think you are saying the centrifugal clutch does not engage. It should not at idle. Did you rev it up a little and it still not engage? There is a clutch face on sprung weights that should expand and turn the clutch drum above idle. Please see the “Handle, Chassis & Bar Assembly” detail for clutch illustrations.
A 2375 has an outboard clutch (the chain is between the engine and clutch drum).
2375 Type 7 (may not be your saw)
Use this as a guide to remove the clutch and inspect the parts:

A 4018 has an inboard clutch (only the drive sprocket extends into the clutch cover). Do this first then use the outboard procedure to remove the remaining clutch pieces.

The C-clips tend to fly when being removed. Please wear eye protection and exercise care.
If these are not your saw it can be found here:
The dash number of your serial number is the type.

Ignition module gap
Place a business or index card between the fly wheel and coil, rotate until the magnetic attraction pulls everything tight together. Tighten the coil screws, rotate the flywheel until the attraction eases and remove the card. Ensure nothing contacts when flywheel is rotated.
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.

SOURCE: Describe your 18" Wild Thing
Check your chain tensioner. It is a little metal tab on a screw inside of the cover. If it is missing the tab that sticks out, you need a new one.
You can't really just put any chain on it with more teeth. You have to make sure you have a matching bar to go with it. The good news is, most of the big box hardware stores have "easy match" bars and chains. This will be sure you don't screw up and get the wrong chain for the wrong bar. Be warned though, running anything longer than the factory chain will likely decrease performance. The saws aren't really meant for heavy logging.
