Question about Poulan Pro 42CC 2 Cycle Chainsaw, 18"
Chain wont move while motor running
Posted on Aug 17, 2011
Make sure the chain brake isn't set. When you turn the clutch outer drum, does it try to turn the engine as well? If so, try oiling the bearing that allows the outer drum to turn over the inner section, and work the oil into the bearing. If no help, you will need to replace the clutch. It is held to the shaft with left-hand-threads and usually requires a special tool to remove it, plus the upper cylinder needs to be stuffed with starter cord so that the piston cannot rise much above the upper part of the exhaust port while trying to remove the clutch. Don't try to remove it with an impact wrench as that will shear the flywheel key. Hope this helps!
