    Inboard or outboard clutch? They are almost always left handed threads (tighten it to loosen it) This question cannot be properly answered as asked.

Tip

Ok, great advice. My sprocket is worn out and I ordered a replacement. It came,...


Outboard drums (drums on the outside of the clutch) are held on by a nut or e-clip.

Inboard drums are held on by the clutch which is threaded onto the crankshaft. And there is the challange.
***NOTE all chain saw clutches have LEFT hand threads, so, rightey loosey, lefty tightey. (just backwards from everything else)

*** NOTE #2: DO NOT USE AN IMPACT GUN
this will most certainly shear the flywheel key or damage the flywheel !!!!! (after 35 years, you can ask me how I know that, LOL)

1) Use a piston stop to hold piston from moving: THIS IS A MUST !!!
Ok, so you do not have one, let's make one.
a) remove the spark plug
b) insert a piece of recoil rope into the cylinder hole, leaving a tail to remove it by. (rope, large shoe string, anything that is soft, that is aprox 1/4 to 5/16 in diameter to place into the spark plug hole to help the piston to stop it's travel by filling up the empty space. Just make sure you can remove it later)
c) secure the saw (extra set of hands may be needed) and with a suitable wrench on the clutch center, rotate the clutch to the right until piston comes to a stop. With a hammer, tap the wrench to aid in rotation. This can be very difficult, and may take several taps.
d) after removed, inspect and grease the drum bearing before re-assemlby.
e) upon re-assembly of clutch, tighten by hand only, NO hammer required. The force of the chain will tighten the clutch.
f) remove the rope, and re-install the spark plug.

After installing the chain on the new poulan chainsaw, the sprocket gear will not turn, I made sure the cover nuts were loose upon tightening the chain but the sprocket gear will not turn with chain on,...


Did you make sure the brake was off before re fitting the side cover, if not the band will be smaller that the drum and will jam the drum and stop it from turning.

Partner 370 how to replace worn sprocket drive on clutch drum


You need to remove the clutch there is a special tool that fits into the two cut a ways in the sides of the clutch centre, the tool then has a 19mm nut on the other end this allows you to jar the clutch off against the compression of the saw, the clutch is just spun onto the crank with a left hand thread so it needs to be jarred off clockwise, an impact gun with a 19mm socket will work very well, the tool is part no. 530031112, should be available on the web.

Sprocket will not turn on Stihl MS 180 chainsaw.


either the brake has come on, pull the hand guard firmly back to the top handle until the brake clicks off and try again, or the drum bearing has collapsed seizing the drum onto the crank.

On my petrol chainsaw the cog that turns the chain is not moveing


The sprocket should be fixed to the outer clutch drum. With the engine off, and the bar and chain off, hold the sprocket with channel lock pliers and turn the outer clutch drum by hand. If the sprocket does not turn, but the drum does, then the clutch must be replaced. (Left hand threads) To keep the engine from turning while trying to remove the clutch internals, stuff starter cord into the upper cylinder head area so that the piston cannot rise above the top of the exhaust port. If you have a saw service shop near you, you might farm out the clutch replacement. It usually requires a special tool to turn the clutch internals. Good luck!

Poulan Super25DA old chainsaw from the mid 70's.


Call your local Power Equipment Dealers and ask if any of them deal with OREGON replacement parts.
OREGON makes clutch drum, chain and bar combinations in the thousands!
NOTE: Along with clutch drum and chain replacement, your bar will need to be changed also, as the sprocket-tip in the nose of the bar will be a different pitch.

my name is Dennis Gladx and I can assist you with the problem of getting the sprocket off of the crankshaft of your chainsaw.

To remove the centrifugal clutch and sprocket you unscrew it from the crankshaft and it has a left hand thread. Also a little trick to remove anything from a crankshaft that could turn while you want to unscrew the item, Remove the spark plug and insert some rope into the cylinder for the piston to squeeze against and you will jam the piston without damage.

Glad to be of assistance Please rate this solution because I can learn from your rating. Thank you
