1) check oil supply holes in the bar
2) With the bar removed, run the engine for 30 seconds, does oil come out of the side of the saw.
3) If no oil on the side of the saw, inspect the clutch drive spring and worm gear on oil pump shaft

Outboard drums (drums on the outside of the clutch) are held on by a nut or e-clip.

Inboard drums are held on by the clutch which is threaded onto the crankshaft. And there is the challange.
***NOTE all chain saw clutches have LEFT hand threads, so, rightey loosey, lefty tightey. (just backwards from everything else)

*** NOTE #2: DO NOT USE AN IMPACT GUN
this will most certainly shear the flywheel key or damage the flywheel !!!!! (after 35 years, you can ask me how I know that, LOL)

1) Use a piston stop to hold piston from moving: THIS IS A MUST !!!
Ok, so you do not have one, let's make one.
a) remove the spark plug
b) insert a piece of recoil rope into the cylinder hole, leaving a tail to remove it by. (rope, large shoe string, anything that is soft, that is aprox 1/4 to 5/16 in diameter to place into the spark plug hole to help the piston to stop it's travel by filling up the empty space. Just make sure you can remove it later)
c) secure the saw (extra set of hands may be needed) and with a suitable wrench on the clutch center, rotate the clutch to the right until piston comes to a stop. With a hammer, tap the wrench to aid in rotation. This can be very difficult, and may take several taps.
d) after removed, inspect and grease the drum bearing before re-assemlby.
e) upon re-assembly of clutch, tighten by hand only, NO hammer required. The force of the chain will tighten the clutch.
f) remove the rope, and re-install the spark plug.

Rwvanlue - I think your inboard and outboard clutch descriptions are reversed. Inboard clutch (drum) uses e-clip; outboard clutch (drum) threaded to shaft and they rarely have any nuts. The centrifugal clutch portion of both types is threaded to the crankshaft.
Your description except for being reverse is clear and concise. good job. Lou
What happens when the recoil rope falls through the exhaust port?

Oiler mechanism to bar of ryobi 40cc 10532 18 inch


I get asked this question a lot , im gonna have to make a video on this subject someday .
but here:
1st ck your oil viscosity/SAE it should be 30 and say bar/chain oil
next dump out entire oil tank and wash out with kerosene (you'd be surprised what I seen come out)
then remove bar and chain , locate oil outlet it's in body of saw near adjustment screw , use a small can of air to blow in this port softly , use a touch more of kero to clean this all out , refill tank with proper oil !!!! and run saw (no need to put bar/chain back on yet ) might take several minutes but oil should start to flow out hole !! stop saw and reinstall bar/chain then run again .. fixed !! if no oil comes out ever your oil pump is gonna need some fixing

for a low cost oil I use filtered used motor oil cut down with a dab of kerosene

How much slack should be in the chain


If you tug on the chain in the middle of the guide, the guide teeth should come out of the guide bar groove with a gap of about 1 - 2 mm (about 1/16 inch). This is from the Ryobi Users Instruction Sheet, please rate this response.

Hi there,i m looking for 16"chain ryobi 40cc chain saw


Take your saw or old chain to a shop that works on small motors and they can make one . Take it to lowes and try one of theirs. They have them to fit any brand saw. Sears, Home Depot or a small hardware store.

Oiler not working


Had you provided the model number we could have provided a more complete answer. What little oil system routing detial there is resides on the IPL. It can be found here:
Homelite/Ryobi.com
https://www.gardnerinc.com/recons/disclaimer-lg.php - Agree; Choose “Product Line”; “Select OEM” & “Select Catalog” both to “Homelite Consumer Products”. A drop down list appears; self explanatory from here.
The numbers Homelite & Ryobi use don't match the numbers everyone posts. A careful inspection of your saw should find something that matches.

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 connections. If equipped with an oil pump it is usually behind the clutch (probably left handed thread). Please make extensive notes & some digital pictures will help during reassembly. GL
