You Likely by this time have resolved this. Mine messed up one day and I found a spring inside it. This spring wraps around the counter weights and pulls them together at idle speed, allowing the chain to stop, without stopping the motor. As you throttle it up and the RPM increases the spring allows the weights to push outward , engaging the chain. I have used mine without it, but I'm sure that would not be a recommended procedure, as the chain is always engaged, even when idling.

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

I think you are saying the centrifugal clutch does not engage. It should not at idle. Did you rev it up a little and it still not engage? There is a clutch face on sprung weights that should expand and turn the clutch drum above idle. Please see the “Handle, Chassis & Bar Assembly” detail for clutch illustrations.
A 2375 has an outboard clutch (the chain is between the engine and clutch drum).
2375 Type 7 (may not be your saw)
Use this as a guide to remove the clutch and inspect the parts:

A 4018 has an inboard clutch (only the drive sprocket extends into the clutch cover). Do this first then use the outboard procedure to remove the remaining clutch pieces.
PP4018 Type 2 (may not be your saw)

The C-clips tend to fly when being removed. Please wear eye protection and exercise care.
If these are not your saw it can be found here:
The dash number of your serial number is the type.
You can reply below with questions or if 1 miss understood your problem. HTH
