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.

YouTube can be a great help with video's of 'how to' do things.

I have attached a video from 'donnyboy73.' I found his video's to be very informative and well put together. The video link is not of your exact saw but is a Poulan and I hope will be helpful to you.

Need to replace clutch & drive sprocket


The threads are left-handed. Remove the spark plug and with the piston high enough to prevent entry into the exhaust/transfer ports, stuff some pull rope into the cylinder head and upper cylinder to block the piston from rising much further. You may need to get a special tool to remove the clutch core assembly--don't use an impact wrench as it will shear the flywheel key. If the clutch won't drive the chain and is full of oil, try washing the clutch drum out with spray carburetor cleaner and let dry. This might save the expense and trouble of replacing it. Hope this helps!

I have a Poulan 2150 chain saw which needs a new chain oil pump. What is the cost to replace it. Should I just buy a new saw.


If you perform the labor repair likely <$20 (<$9 for pump, <$1 worm gear). Compare replacement cost to 34cc± replacement, your call.
A link to a Poulan 2150 Gas Saw Type 7 follows (may not be your saw):
http://www.ordertree.com/modelinfo/PWE/2150-Gas-Saw-Type-7/75.2150-Gas-Saw-Type-7.1.59.1.html

If the link is not your saw it can be found here.
The IPL (exploded parts list) for your saw is the only detail for the oil system and it is sketchy at best. Oil components and part numbers are listed but may be on different illustrations. They are also beneficial with disassembly/reassembly:
Poulan.com
http://www.ordertree.com/modelinfo/POULAN-WEED-EATER/75.59.html
The dash number of your serial number is the type.
The oil pump is under the outboard clutch, this is helpful with removal.

  1. Check the IPL for your saw to see if any special tools are needed. Poulan (Craftsman, Jonsered, Husky) clutch removal tool part number 530031112 if needed, is under $5 from many sources (look at the visible area between the weights if 2 small round sockets are visible you need the tool).
  2. There are metal piston stops available, when square (almost never) with the piston top these work well, if not square they have been known to punch through the piston. I suggest a length of nylon rope (nothing left behind) 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. Everyone I have ever removed had a left handed thread (tighten it to loosen it).
If you have more questions or need additional help please reply below and I will get back to you. Thank you for using FixYa and Good Luck. HTH

I need to know how to replace the sprocket on poulan model 4620 chainsaw


It is a Poulan PP4620(dependent on clutch adjuster - AV, AVHD, AVL or AVX)
Poulan.com/CurrentModels (Check in Illustrated Parts List (IPL) box)
http://www.poulanpro.com/node4043.aspx
Type just the model numbers (choose the suffix after the list is provided).

All 4 of these display an outboard clutch, use this as a removal guide:

Want to change sprocket on poulan 4620 avx to 3/8, for ripping chain.


41569X is an Oregon 6 spur sprocket for a PP4620AV. It is not listed with the PP4620 or the PP4620AVX, I think it will work. Please verify this with Oregon here:

I think this saw may be small for use with a mill but it is your decision.

I am reasonably this saw has an outboard clutch, this will help with replacement.
