Question about Garden
The Gardentec chainsaw has a 45cm chain bar and a 52cc motor
I'm not familiar with the model 'Gardentec' is it a Ryobi product?
In many cases now and especially on cheaper hobby saws the starter pawls are not available as individual items. However I'll explain the process of replacement.
Firstly, remove the starter housing and the plastic shield fitted to most saws between the starter pulley and flywheel. You will now have to remove the flywheel. The centre nut is a normal R/H thread but you will have to lock the piston first.
Remove the sparkplug and if a piston lock tool is not available then a length of starter rope will suffice, Turn the engine over by hand until the piston is opposite top dead centre (furtherest from sight) then push as much of the starter rope into the hole as you can. This will stop the crankshaft from turning when you undo the flywheel nut. Once the nut is undone your next step will be to remove the flywheel and they seldom slip off easily. In many cases a puller will be required but use caution or the flywheel will shatter. Do not hit the flywheel with a hammer or damage will occur. Light pressure can be applied at opposite sides of the flywheel by inserting two screwdrivers and lightly levering. Do not use too great a force.
If these process fail to produce results then you should seek the help of a chainsaw service shop.
Now once the flywheel has been removed you can turn it over and insert a pin punch to drift out the pawl pivot pins.
Reassembly is a lot easier.

What kind of saw. How old? New Spark Plug? How old is the gas inside it? Is the air filter dirty? When you try to start it does it turn easy or is it a little stubborn or won't turn at all?

either chain has come off drive sprocket or clutch is knacked, --adjust chain to reset it on sprocket by loosening the two flange nuts on the blade bar side, or check clutc and or brake band is not stuck on
