I think its an outboard clutch, use this as a guide. A YouTube video shows the procedure using a Husqvarna 350 here:
1. I cannot find an IPL for your saw, it may require special tools.
2. A length of starter cord or nylon rope may be used instead of the piston stop (retain 6" ± so you can remove it). Make sure the piston is near the top of the cylinder before feeding the cord or it can fall through the exhaust port and be cut when the piston rises.
3. It is probably a left handed thread (tighten it to loosen it).
Let us know how it worked for you. GL

How to remove the chain on a Mcculloch MS1435? I can't get it over the 'clutch/sprocket' assembly. Do I need to remove the clutch?

There should be need to remove the clutch, push the bar back s far as it will go, un loop it off the nose of the bar, the bar will then come away making it easy to remove the chain.

Mcculloch 14" chainsaw no oil at chain??

Oil System Plugged.
  1. Remove the clutch cover, bar, and chain, clean the bar groove, any holes and passages on the rear of the bar (both sides, consider rotating the bar), if equipped with a sprocket nose ensure it rotates easily at least one complete revolution. Clean the saw oiler hole and channel. Insert a blunted, hooked piece of wire through the oil filler hole and pull the hose in the oil tank out. Pay attention to the screen or filter on the free end (clean or replace, difficult to determine serviceability). Start the saw and see if it oils when revved up. If yes reassemble your saw. If no, continue with 2.
  2. Work your way through the linkage cleaning and replacing any defective parts as you go. Carefully check the hoses for cracks especially at bends and connections. If equipped with an oil pump it is usually behind the clutch (clutch is a left handed thread). Please make extensive notes & some digital pictures will help during reassembly.
If it does not oil on completion of 1 on a McCulloch it is most often a plugged or disconnected hose.

There are in excess of 230 different McCulloch chainsaws. Oilers are often specific to one model. Please reply below with the model and serial number of yours so I can provide a more complete answer and an IPL. HTH
