Question about Echo Garden
I bought a nes CS 310 and when I started to loosten the clutch cap nuts (also holds the bar) I noticed they were VERY tight, possibly over torqued at the factory. When the nut was reversed the stud seemed to turn with the nut. I took it to the dealer and they were able to successfully remove the nuts. I've replaced chains on other saws and NEVER thought the stud was turning when reversing the retaining nuts. Has abyone else experienced this with a CS310?

the problem with torqueing the nuts is that it's not enough tighting.i tell my customers that you need to tighten them as tight as you can get them.the nuts will not vibrate loose then.don't worry about breaking the studs they are very hard.

the nut is part of the clutch bell housing just spin the bell counter clockwise and hold the flywheel or you can buy a tool that goes in spark plug hole its called a "dead stop"

At our dealership we replace the Bar studs with Heli-Coil and locktite for $20.
NOTE: Remove the old stud by double-nutting and screwing out of the case and marking the end that came out. Take it with you to NAPA and get the correct Heli-Coil size and a small tube of BLUE Loctite. (Might be cheaper to let the Stihl dealer do it)
Hope this helps!

have you made sure that chain pitch and gauge are the same as the sprocket pitch pitches can be 3/8 lo pro 0.50 gauge
.325 x 0.50 gauge , .325 x 0.58 gauge
3/8 std x 0.50 or 3/8 x 0.58 gauge or 3/8 x 0.63 gauge
you could even have the correct drum but wrong rim sprocket on it
worst case is you could have mismatch bar and chain
make sure that bar adjjuster assy is working correctly
recheck chain / sprocket pitches and bar pitch and groove
be sure that you fitted chain to rim on sprocket correctly when you fitted bar and chain?
is the clutch cover pulling down tight ?
have a look and let me know if and what you find
