You must disassemble the shaft assembly.
**NOTE: take a photo of each step of disassembly so that you will have a record of how to reassemble and where all the pieces go.
I have worked with them for over 20 years, it is hard to remember, and there is no book!
More than likely you have an inner shaft driver or bearing that has failed, the shaft my be excessively worn. It is hard to say without seeing what is inside.

SOURCE: looking for a manual for a stihl pole power saw

Your local Stihl dealer can order the manual for you. It might be free or there could be a small charge for shipping. Either way, it's worth having the manual and Stihl WANTS you to have the manual. Be sure to have your model number and serial number with you when you go to the dealer.

SOURCE: I have a Stihl ht101 pole saw that is not oiling

Remove the bar and chain and run the saw. Does oil come out of the side port? If not, check the pump, lines, and in-tank filter. If ok, clean all the holes in the drive end of the bar including the small holes that pass oil to the chain slot. Compressed air helps here. Clean the chain slot. Oil the chain manually after assembly.

SOURCE: I have a stihl pole saw ht101. The saw starts fine and runs for a minute or two, then loses power. What ido I check?

If you mean the engine is losing power your more than likely have a restriction in the exhaust. The sut from the two stroke mix builds up and restricts the exhaust gases. Hence looses power. Happened to me lots of times

How do you get the drive shaft out of the pole on a stihl 101 pole saw?

Bought brand new! I saved up for this product for awhile since they are pretty pricey. I also own acreage in the Midwest so this tool is much needed. I owe 2 older stihl chainsaws and fs70 trimmer. I work sometimes 70-80 hours a week so anytime I have on the weekends to clean up tree damage from storms, etc is precious.

My Stihl HT 75 pole pruner pulls the shaft out of the clutch housing when I extend it out. Any suggestions on the problem?

sounds like the drive shafts have been put the tube the wrong way, or something is missing from the inner shaft.. I've attached the breakdown manual so you can check.
