How to remove the clutch & sprocket from Husqvarna chainsaw

The clutch type on Husqvarna chainsaws fall into two types, inboard clutch, this is where the drum is on the outside of the clutch, and held on with a clip, and outboard clutch, where the clutch is on the outside of the drum and holds the drum on. There are a number of reasons as to why you may need to remove the clutch and drum, to replace a broken spring, to replace the whole clutch,to lubricate the drum bearing, or replace the sprocket. On the pro saw range it is possible with outboard clutches to grease the drum bearing through the end of the crankshaft, there is a channel to the bearing from the outside, this is not possible on hobby, and domestic saws.
All Husqvarna clutches are just spun onto the crankshaft, with a left hand thread to make them self tightening, due to this they should NEVER be run with the bar and chain removed,and the clutch in place, or there is a very good chance the clutch will spin off on the over run, and can cause serious injury. Clutches should be jarred off against the compression of the saw, many have a 19mm nut on the outside so as to fit a socket, or the combination spanner supplied with the saw, the quickest way to remove this clutch is with an air impact wrench. If there is no nut on the outside, there will very likley be two cut a ways in the clutch spider, these are designed to take a flat screw driver blade, and with a suitable hammer you can strike the screw driver and jarr the clutch off, there is also a special tool for this type of out board clutch, it fits into the sides of the clutch with a 19mm nut on the outside part no. 502541601 available from Husqvarna dealers. The hobby saws from Husqvarna are produced in America, and as such use the Poulon clutch, this clutch should never be struck with a hammer, it is made from a sintered material and will shatter, there is a special tool to remove this clutch part no. 530031112.
The inboard clutch on the 371/372/365 also has a special tool available so as to use a 19mm socket, part no. 502522201.
The tool for the 357 clutch is part no. 502522202.
As a personal thing i never use piston stops, i have seen too much damage to internal engine parts when useing these, it is far better to jar the clutch off. As a rule of thumb you should not be able to pull the clutch shoes out by hand, if you can, the spring.springs are weak and require replacement, the clutch soes are also shamffered on there edge, the bottom of which is the wear limit.

I have a Honda whipper snipper that needs a bearing that attaches to the clutch /drum assembly.i removed the large circlip at the end of the clutch housing but can`t progress any further, any ideas?john

The bearing you want will be in the end of the shaft housing under the clutch drum. You will need to pull the clutch drum out of the housing so remove the head of the snipper to ensure that there are no retainers on the end of the shaft. Check if there are 2 holes in the housing under the drum . insert a punch and tap the clutch drum and drive shaft out of the bearing. If there are no holes there then there may be holes in the back of the clutch drum in which you will inset the legs of a slide hammer puller and hammer it out of the bearing

How do I remove the clutch

Remove the power unit, remove the plastic clutch/ starter cover, install a piston stop, with a t25 torx driver inserted down the center tube on the clutch drum remove the clutch drum, then using the proper clutch tool remove the clutch paying attention to the arrow stamped on the clutch- usually left handed thread. be sure not to lose small washer between clutch and drum.

Clutch removal tool?

not recommended, if you use a impact the end of the crank and bolts and nuts are small you can snap off the bolt or worse snap the crank end
also many drums are held on with a snap ring and then the clutch can
be held in place with a both or nut on the end and there may be set screws on some models as well
as in most saws the drum and sprockets are what wear first, normally you can just replace the drum and sockets before you have to replace the entire clutch assembly, so if you have never replaced the drum or sprokets before once you remove the drum if the clutch spring is not broke, just replace the drum and sprocket will save you a bunch of money

How do you change the clutch?

Remove the side casing. (bar side)
Take off bar and chain.
Remove E-clip holding the clutch drum on.
Remove clutch drum and needle cage bearing.
This should expose the clutch.
Remove spark plug.
Use a piston stop to stop the piston rising, Sometimes a knotted piece of pull cord fed into the cylinder is just as good.
Turn the clutch clockwise with a socket to unscrew.

To put clutch back on turn anticlockwise till piston cycles back and hits the piston stop again and tighten. Replace spark plug and clutch drum, bearing, bar and chain and side casing.

How do you disassemble the small drive gear on the PE550?

The small gear (part # 530071258) is attached to the clutch drum with a right-hand threaded cap screw (remove counter clockwise with an Allen wrench). It is secured with Locktite. To keep the clutch drum from turning while you remove the cap screw you must remove the transmission case from the edger (three long screws that are very hard to see and accessed from the blade side). The clutch drum has four holes in it -- you will use one of them to hold the drum from turning. Insert a 3/16 to 1/4 in drill thru one of the holes and drill a hole in the plastic transmission case, but not into the grease chamber. To keep the drum from turning, pass a screw driver or other round tool thru the hole in the drum and thru the hole in the case. Use the screw driver as a lever to keep the drum from turning and back out the cap screw counter clockwise. If the drum clutch becomes out of round you will have to replace it (part # 530036665).

How do you remove the clutch drum assembly for model #316.791890

Your clutch drum is held on with a Torx head screw which is screwed into the end of the crankshaft. To lock the engine up so crank won't turn, remove the spark plug, rotate the engine so the piston is down and put some clean pull rope or otherwise soft material in cylinder. ...make sure it is something that won't hang up in the ports on the sides. Then when you rotate the crank, it will compress the rope or soft material, locking up the engine to facilitate removal of the Torx screw, The screw will come loose but will probably not come all the way out...that's just the way they made it.

Needle bearing maintenance
