The C-clips tend to fly when being removed. Please wear eye protection and exercise care.


View this; it will help. Your clutch is a left handed thread.

  1. Check at the IPL for your saw to see if any special tools are needed.
  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 damage the piston as it rises.
  3. It is probably a left handed thread (tighten it to loosen it).
You didn't provide the model number of you saw, I can't be more specific. You can find an IPL (exploded parts list) that will list any special tools here:

Poulan Pro 42/18 gas Chain saw: The chain oil hole that feeds the upper slot seems to be blocked. Does that rubber assembly just pull out or does the whole area have to be taken apart. Is it gravity feed...


GS, there is a pump driven by the clutch sprocket/drum. Operate the engine with the bar off. There should be oil coming out.

a) If so, the hole in the bar is plugged with saw dust. This is very common on all brands of saws.

b) If not, then remove the clutch/drum assembly and inspect the worm gear drive of the pump.
*note, the threads on all chain saw clutches are Left Hand reverse threads.

Chain oil Not getting to chain


Oil System Plugged.
Remove the clutch cover, bar and chain. Clean the oiler hole and channel. Start the saw and see if it oils when revved up. If yes reassemble your saw.
If no a blunted, hooked piece of wire can be used to pull the hose in the oil tank out. I recommend the filter be replaced. 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 probably left handed thread). Please make extensive notes & some digital pictures will help during reassembly. GL

My kenmore 90 series washer model has a slow or no spin


Hello Friend, Your solution is very simple. You need to replace the clutch assymbly. It's easy to replace the clutch assymbly on your machine. First, pop the cover off the top of your agitator and remove the bolt that holds it in place. Gently pull the agitator up and out of the machine. Now, remove the two screws that hold control panel in place and tilt back exposing the two metal clips that hold the cabinet in place. You will see some wires plugged into the cabinet, just unplug them. There are two clips, one on each side. Just pop these clips off and lift cabinet slightly from back and tilt forward. At this point you will be able to completely remove the cabinet. Once you have cabinet removed just set it aside. Now, just lay the washer on it's back. At this point you will see the water pump, motor, and transmission. Remove the pump by snapping off the two spring clips. The pump will slide right off the motor shaft. Now, remove the two screws that hold the two spring clips attached to motor. Unplug all the wires etc. and then snap the metal clips off motor. Lift motor straight up, it should slide right off. Now you will see three bolts holding the transmission in place, just remove these three bolts. Now, gently pull the transmission out of the washer and sit it in an upright possition. At this point you will see the clutch assymbly on the top of the transmission with the agitator shaft going through it. There is a spring clip holding the clutch in place be sure to wear eye protection. Just pop this spring out and remove the entire clutch and replace with new clutch assymbly. Re-assymble the washer and the problem you are encountering should be solved. Happy to help, Tim.
