Question about Echo 30.1CC Chainsaw With a 14 In.bar and Chain
I bought a preassembled Echo CS 310 and noticed that the clutch cap nuts (holds the bar) were very tight, perhaps over torqued at the factory. When I started to removed the nuts the stud seemed to turn with the nut. I took it to a dealer because I didn't want to turn the nut and perhaps strip something internally. The tech at the dealership was able to remove the nuts successfully. Is anyone experiencing this?

Turns out there is a reverse thread on the clutch hub (the "Y" shaped piece). I poked around some on the web and got some ideas, but they called for a special tool that it made by echo that fits in around the legs of the hub, and once you've prevented the crankshaft from turning by blockiing the piston, it turns (clockwise) with a wrench. I didn't have that tool, nor did I want to spend $19.95 to buy one, so I stuck a plastic toothbrush handle into the exhaust port to block the piston from moving, and used an open-end wrench just wide enough to fit over one of the legs in the "Y" shaped clutch hub. Then I took a large crescent wrench and closed it over the open-end wrench, right down next to the hub. So, if the saw is lying on its side, with the clutch facing up, the open-end wrench is inserted straight down straddling one leg of the clutch hub, and the crescent wrench is positioned horizontally gripping the bottom end of the open ended wrench to provide a "handle" for leverage. Holding the saw securely somehow (I used my elbow), left hand gripping the open-end wrench and pushing it down into the clutch so it won't slip out, I used my right hand to provide the clockwise motion on the crescent wrench as a lever/handle. Clutch popped free after a few seconds of pressure.
Hope this experience helps someone.

The IPL for a model 400 Echo can be found here:
It should not matter but please verify this fits your serial number.
From the IPL your saw has an outboard clutch. Use this the following as a guide. I didn't see any special tools on the IPL.
