I usually try to make my own tools for these situations - do you have any skills/abilities for that? Otherwise try another dealer, negotiate a loan of the tool maybe. Many special tools eventually make it into the aftermarket, possibly they are being sold online somewhere.

    We are also limited in Australia by quite onerous distribution setups. EG a part for my Yamaha outboard costs 3 times as much as the USA. So there are no other suppliers, just the one in the entire country, Not in the dealers interests to sell a tool he can charge me to use...

McCullock 7-38 chain lube not working


The oil pump is behind the sprocket and clutch, if you have cleaned out the delivery hole in the bar and still no oil, then you will need to check the pump itself, remove the e clip and washer securing the sprocket, remove the sprocket, the clutch is removed with a pin spanner, there is a genuine tool for this 530031112, you can then jar the clutch off against the compression of the saw ( left hand thread ) there is now just two screws securing the oil pump, the pump has a nylon gear, with a steel gear pressed onto the crank, check the condition of the nylon gear, remove the silver bar pad cover tou can then pull out the pick up/delivery tube, on the end is a filter.

Earthquake cs4518 wont start


pull the spark plug out and check it for wetness. you may have flooded it unknowingly so it won't start. if it is wet, blow it off or let it air dry. turn the saw so the spark plug hole is facing down and pull the rope a few times to clear all the excess fuel out of the cylinder. put the plug back in and with NO choke try starting it again. if the plug isn't wet let me know and we will see if we can figure something else out

Sounds like the Chain Brake? You will need to replace this or disengage the brake. Take the cover off and see if you can start it.

How do I change the oiler line that's on the


Too replace the pipe you need to remove the sprocket, clutch and oil pump, start by removing the e clip and washer retaining the sprocket ( dont lose the bearing ) there is a special tool to remove the clutch, or if you do not have this, insert a sturdy flat screw driver into on of the cut a ways in the clutch spider, and strike with a hammer you will have to strike numerous times to jar the clutch off ( left hand thread ) once off, remove the cross head screw holding the steele bar protection plate and remove, remove the two 4mm allen screws securing the oil pump, knock the chain brake on, this will allow enough movment of the brake band to remove the brass delivery tube from the pump, the pump will now come away, the pick up pipe will now just pull out of the tank.

Not pumping oil to chain, bought a new pump and oil pickup but I`m not sure where the oil pump is located and what I have to disassemble to get to it.


Most oil pumps are situated behind the clutch and sprocket, these will need to be removed before you can acsess the old pump, if it has an inboard sprocket you will need to remove the clutch first, these are a left hand thread and just spun onto the crankshaft, they need to be jarred off against the compression of the saw, you may need a special tool if there is no nut on the outside of the clutch, this tool fits most Poulon clutches 530035560, once removed it is a fairly straight forward job to change the pump.

Oiler does not flow well have cleaned chain and oiler holes & bar slot? what next? ian


The next step is to check the pick up filter, and the oil pump itself, to do this you will need to remove the clutch and sprocket as the pump is behind here, unfortunatley you need a special tool to remove the clutch, part no. 530031112, this tool fits into the clutch centre, it has a 19mm nut on the end so as to jar the clutch off against compression ( left hand thread ) once removed you can get at the pump, once the pump is removed you can check the plastic worm gear for wear, you can also pull the pick up pipe out and clean the filter. there is a trick that some times works, drain the oil tank, now fill it with a suitable cleaning fluid, give it a good shake, rinse it out two or three times, this will help to remove any dirt in the oil filter.
