Question about Poulan Pro 42CC 2 Cycle Chainsaw, 18"

1 Answer

Missing part(s) on clutch but not sure the actual part number

I'm missing a part (washer and possibly other small parts) on what I think is the clutch. It is located where the chain rotates behind the guide bar. I can not locate a diagram. The parts listing does not show pictures or details.

I'm looking for a diagram if possible.

The chain keeps falling off my brand new Poulan sixteen inch blade chain saw


It is possible they gave you the wrong chain for the saw. I would take check the manufacture to see which chain you need then check the numbers on your chain. Other thing it could be is the washer on the clutch may be missing. Either way, it is a new saw, I would take it back.

Brand new chain saw bought from reputable dealer. The CS600. It was missing a part on the oiler and dealer fixed. Now the clutch overheats badly, to the point it acyually smokes. Does Echo have a policy...


Not had a lot to do with Echo, but have always heard good reports, for smoke to come from the clutch cover the clutch would have to be slipping, either due to running with the chainbrake on, or useing with a very blunt chain. To make sure the brake is off, pull the hand guard fully back to the top handle.

I have a Craftsman 14" chain saw model 358.355141. It seems the clutch is slipping when I throttle up. Sears doesn't have a manual for it anymore. How do I fix this? Is there an adjustment?


A link to a PDF OM for your saw follows.
http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/owner_manuals/20938/CRAFTSMAN-Chainsaw-Gas-L0904399?brand_name_search=358355141+CRAFTSMAN
A link to an IPL (exploded parts list) follows:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Craftsman-Parts/Chainsaw-Parts/Model-358.355141/0247/1503220?pathTaken=

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.

Does the centrifical clutch on a Stihl 034 AV chainsaw screw off and if so which direction


I cannot find a manual for an 034 so I must make my best guess (yes, left handed thread). Most Stihl saws have inboard clutches. I am going to reply as though that is true. The drive sprocket does not require (if inboard clutch) clutch removal. It must be removed to access the actual clutch. I reply as though you want to actually remove the clutch itself.

Do this first:

The C-clips tend to fly when being removed. Please wear eye protection and exercise care.

  3. Everyone I have ever removed had a left handed thread (tighten it to loosen it).

Runs fine until it warms up then it acts like the chain brake is on and won't run


I am going to close this, you can continue to reply and I will continue respond to the best of my ability.
Actually the slipping clutch is a good likelihood. I might lean toward an abraded clutch face. I will post what I consider a pretty good removal method. A couple of other things that come to mind from your description are:
1. When it begins to give you trouble, check the oiler operation. If the chain and bar get hot they will bind.
2. Do the same with the sprocket nose. You should not need to remove the bar, loosen it, slide the bar tight against the drive sprocket, loosen the chain at the nose of the bar and ensure you can easily rotate the sprocket in the nose of the bar. I do not think it #2 but it is a possibility.

Your basic model number is 600035. There are 11-, 21-, and 22- prefixes used with 600035s. There are also a ton of suffixes with the 600035s. I think the suffix is on your saw immediately after the basic model number somewhere (usually on bottom of older Macs along with the serial number. The dash of the serial on older Macs is the prefix). I must defer to you to find your exact IPL, here:
McCulloch IPLs
http://www.ordertree.com/modelinfo/McCulloch/139.59.html

I chose this one as an example "22-600035-58" for an IPL
http://www.ordertree.com/modelinfo/MCC/22-600035-58-Mac-3516-IPL-211229-01/139.22-600035-58-Mac-3516-IPL-211229-01.1.59.1.html
I find these helpful when getting into an area of repair I am unfamiliar with. Also clutch parts are displayed and part numbers listed.


She has an outboard clutch and this is very help with removal:

I have a recoil problem and I think I might have a spacer or washer missing. Spring is OK but tightening screw that holds assemble in place locks recoil action.


You can find an IPL (exploded parts list) here:
Homelite/Ryobi.com (authorized parts supplier)
https://www.gardnerinc.com/recons/disclaimer-lg.php - Agree; Choose “Product Line”; “Select OEM” & “Select Catalog” both to “Homelite Consumer Products”. A drop down list appears; self explanatory from here.
The numbers Homelite & Ryobi use do not match the numbers everyone posts. A careful inspection of your saw should find something that matches.

Detail is usually sketchy. I found nothing that matched the numbers you posted. Good Luck
