How do i remove sprocket from chainsaw homelite ut10588

The washer needs to removed too as it may have dropped into a thread. Other than that there nothing that shouldn't be anything holding the sprocket drum; unless you have a clutch or needle bearing failure.
Note: only 6 tooth .375 sprocket is available and than it is an aftermarket one. The 8 tooth .325 spocket is no longer available.

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)

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.

Hi, poppa530 I will try to help you out. You probably installed the chain so it is not engaging the sprocket. Remove the chain and re-install, but make sure it is engaged on the sprocket located behind the drum where the shoes are that as the RPM goes up engage the drum and turn the chain. I can't think of anything else that could be causing this problem, unless the drum and clutch shoes are not engaging any more. Do you know if the clutch shoes, drum and sprocket have been removed from the crankshaft, and maybe not re-installed properly? Can you turn the chain by hand? If not, something has jammed preventing chain from turning. Have you recently installed a new chain, bar or both? If so, you might not have the right width drive link tang or the right pitch on the chain. If a new bar has been installed the bar groove might not be the right size. You might also check out the sprocket to see if it is bent or damaged. I hope I have helped even a little bit. All the best and good luck. Any questions welcome.

Cant remove rear drums

My friend;
Try this;
  1. There is small sprocket { like gear } inside the bottom side of the drum.
  2. You can reach it by knock small metal in the back plate of the drum system.
  3. Then with a chisel & hammer knock (remove) that small piece of metal.
  4. With Normal slotted { flat } screw driver tray to rotate that sprocket inside the drum but from inside toward the axel .
  5. You can look its picture in the Google image window.
  6. There are two small holes in front of your face in the center of the drum to insert two bolts & by tightening them equally it helps in the removal process.
  7. You can pour very hot water to ease the removal & hammer it with rubber mallet.
This pic like that sprocket inside the drum;
This sprocket keep automatically adjust the brake shows every time they wear.
Try it, & PLZ; let me know if I add any benefits to you.
I hope I add some thing valuable to you.

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
