In addition to the 8 obvious bolts there are 4 more under the gearcase insulator holding the gearcase to the housing. I looked at a schematic for the 18V recip saw and that is all I saw. Have you tried the Hitachipowertools.com website for the schematic? Let me know if you still have trouble.

your missing a tooth on a large round gear in the gearbox.
when the gear on the engine rotates into the position where the little engine gear spins because there is no tooth to come into contact with the engine runs but the gearbox doesnt spin, hence no reciprocation, but engine runs.
if you bump the blade it will start going again, but when you cut it will stop offasionally in mid cut. you can repair this but stop using it the engine gear will be destroyed otherwise
I have a dewalt dw303 that you can use for parts, I need a new trigger or something the motor is dead and I found a new saw. go to craigslist.org, rochester ny tools section and look for dewalt dw303 that is my listing. for ten bucks ill sell you all the gears you need. i think it is close to the same model, i am sure it is the same gearbox.
try opening your gearbox, im positive that is what is wrong.

Some of the 'good' hardware stores sell small brushes for hand tools. Look around and you can custom fit the brush if it's not exactly right size with light sand paper

If you still have the old belt, take it to a well equipped hardware or auto parts store for a replacement. If the previous belt is missing, you will need to measure the pulley 'V' width at the top of the 'V', the center to center measurement of the two shafts, and the outer diameters of the two pulleys. Hope this helps!

Mastercraft's help line is 1-800-689-9928. However this saw is no longer in production and parts are available only until stock is depleted. It was supplied by an european company called WMH Tool Group that apparently doesn't supply CTC any longer.
