Question about Garden
Revs OK, drive sprocket does not engage
Since that is a centrifugal clutch, the speed of the engine is what turns the sprocket. If it revs good and doesn't turn then I would have to assume that the clutch is not making contact with the drum, the chain brake is on, or it really isn't revving the way you might think it should. If it is a clutch issue then it should over rev.

I've been messin with my poulan 2150 that was doing the same thing. Good, fresh gas, good spark,etc. I noticed whenever I loosened the fuel cap it would literally spray gas out! alas, I removed the muiffler assy and the darn thing fired up the first pull! I've got the muffler parts soaking in gas right now and I'm sure this the problem. It just makes sense especially if you use the same 'mixed fuel' can for weed eater, blower,etc. Check your's out, it could very well be your problem too! GOOD LUCK

It must be reset before you can reinstall it.
This answer stolen from Dolfoff;
Clamp the cover in a vise being careful to stay on flat surfaces of the cover (use wooden blocks if needed) and pull the brake lever back to the "OFF" position. It's a strong spring so pull hard in the direction that would be towards the rear of the saw if the cover were installed.
Hope this helps.

A few clicks form here will get an Illustrated Parts Manual, I find them them helpful.
If I read the pictures correctly it has an outboard clutch, this may also be helpful.

No clutch on this model electric. I suspect a stripped gear.
Remington is no longer in production. Often eBay is the only source for ereplacement parts. I suspect this saw was subjected to some severe operation. The motor for any model Remington cannot be found. Look hard at the cost of a new sprocket kit if available, you might be better served with a different saw. We rarely get questions about McCulloch or Poulan electrics, I suspect a much higher quality saw that will nedd few if any replacement parts. Wen is back in production, they used to be a quality product they might be worthy a critical inspection.
If you have more questions or need additional help please reply below and I will get back to you. Good Luck. HTH
