Question about Makita 33cc 14-Inch Bar 1.9 HP Gas Powered Chain Saw #DCS34
I would like to put a new Clutch Drum onto my chain saw can any one tell me what tool I need and the best way to do it.
Hope some one can help
Special tools may be require and can usually be purchased form the maker of your saw.
Often the spark plug is removed, the piston positioned to just before TDC, and a length of starter cord or rope fed into the cylinder. This allows the the clutch to be be removed without damaging the piston or cylinder.
1. Don't put all of starter cord or rope into cylinder.
2. Ensure the piston is above the exhaust port.
3. The threads are often left handed.

The side plate on most chainsaws will be held on by two nuts. Loosen the blade adjustment screw (a pin that is usually driven by a screw and pushes the blade out from the chainsaw to keep the chain tension tight).
The old chain is ready to be removed now that the sprocket plate is off of the saw. Pull the nose of the chainsaw's bar away from the chainsaw to release it from the tensioner.
Remove the old chainsaw chain.
The chain will easily remove from the guide bar with all that slack in it. Note the orientation of the cutting edges of the chain so you put the new one on the same way.
Pull the drive links out of the guide bar and slip the other end of the chain around the clutch drum.
Carefully thread your new or recently sharpened chainsaw chain around the chainsaw's clutch drum, making sure that the drive links engage in the sprocket.
Thread the rest of the drive links into the guide bar and around its nose, making sure all links are in the guide bar slot.
With the chain properly threaded along the clutch drum and guide bar, put some tension into it by pulling on the nose of the guide bar away from the chainsaw.
While pulling the guide bar, make sure to seat it onto the saw's adjustment pin.
Replace the side plate.
The side plate is ready to go back on as long as the guide bar is properly positioned beneath.
Replace the plate and the nuts that hold it into position, but do not tighten the nuts down all the way yet. The guide bar must be allowed to move a little while the chain is tightened to the correct tension.
Finish tightening the side plate nuts.
The chainsaw chain replacement is now complete.
