The previous suggestion will work but there is an easier way. Remove the cover over the the chain and remove the chain and bar. Turn the motor over and remove the cover from the opposite side to reveal the cooling fan. This fan is held in place by a nut which attaches the fan to the engine crankshaft and is on the opposite end of the crankshaft to the clutch assembly. To stop the crankshaft from turning as you remove the clutch assembly, either put a socket and ratchet on the nut or jam the fan in position using a screwdriver. If you use a screwdriver take care not to break a fin off the fan. Now simply give one of the three legs of the clutch a sharp rap or two with a suitable sized drift and hammer but remember, and I use capitols to emphasise the point, THE CLUTCH HAS A L/H THREAD AND MUST BE TURNED CLOCKWISE TO REMOVE. Once loosened, the clutch should spin off by hand. Whilst you have the clutch and sprocket off, make sure that you check the serviceability of the oil pump drive and the flimsy (stupid) cover plate which distorts and falls to pieces with heat and where I think most of the oil leaks from when the engine is not running. Re-assembly is simply the reverse procedure. Good luck.

Regards, Bob.

The clutch will not just pull off the shaft nor is there a locking grub srew. if you look at the clutch you will see something in the shape of a Y, this is threaded on to the shaft and has to be removed with a special spanner. I couldn't find one for purchase, so made my own out off a short length of 1 3/4 inch pipe with slots removed to fit neatly over the Y, than welded a 3/4 nut on top. Once you have got your self the spanner you then remove the spark plug, put the piston to its lowest point and fill the cylinder with 3/8 rope through the spark plug hole, this will cushion the piston while you undo the clutch (make sure you leave enough rope hanging out so you can remove it again). putting it back together is the same, just make sure you remove the pull starter assembly before you do the clutch back up again. Gently pull the rope back out, replace the spark plug, jobs done. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: Cant get clutch cover off new Husqvarna 235e chain saw

Mine did this when nearly brand new. You likely have a nasty jam of oil and sawdust stuck between the chain brake and the flywheel. It can be loosened by either careful prying of the case or precise shots of carb cleaner up in the housing. While you are in there look for a buildup of oil around the chain brake connection to the kickback paddle.

SOURCE: Pull cord on chain saw will not retract.

Most of the rancher models are easy to look at. Take the four screws off that hold the starter cover on.When off have a look to see if the pulley is ok or one of the starter dogs(pawls) is jamed . If dogs ok take the screw out of the centre of pulley and remove it ,check for spring tension. if there is just be carful to leave sring in housing. look at spring if broken or out of shape renew it and rope.check for cracks in pulley. When renewing spring and rope get correct rope length and diameter. don't over tension new spring. hop this helps

Craftsman chain saw repair manual

Its not hard! You need to purchase a tool that goes into your spark plug hole. You remove the spark plug, put this tool in the hole. This tool stops the piston from moving so you can remove the nut holding the clutch. The clutch is what the drive sprocket is attached to. The drive sprocket is where the chain fits on at the engine side. remive the bar and chain and you will see the clutch. Use the tool and then use a wrench that fits the nut on the clutch. be sure you know which way removes the nut. It could be opposite of what you think. some are left hand threads some are not. I think these are not. After you replace the clutch be sure to lube the clutch bearings. Most people don't know this! use a grease gun made for saws and insert it into the hole at the end of the shaft that holds the clutch. Also next time your saw cant saw through a piece of wood, do not give it gas to make the chain try and move.This is what burns up the clutch! If your saw stalls out, and you press the throttle and it still doesn't turn. Always allow the chain to move, pull back and lift up on the saw slightly to get the chain moving again.

There is a number of ways to re load the brake, you can either remove the clutch and sprocket, the brake will then go back onto the saw enabling you to use the hand guard on the saw to load the brake ( to remove the clutch, there are two cut a ways in the clutch centre designed to enter a flat screw driver into, then strike with a suitable hammer to remove, it is a left hand thread ) or you can remove the hand guard from the saw and use this as a tool to re load the brake, or you can clamp the cover in a vice ( be carefull not to damage the cover ) then use a strudy pair of pliers or grips in the three legged loading mechanism and turn it to load the brake.

Chain does not rotate around bar. Chain brake seems to engage/disengage as intended.

With a gloved hand can you manually pull the chain around the bar? if not the chainbrake is still engaged, pull the hand guard fully back to the top handle until you hear the click from the brake mechanism, if the chain does pull around manually then there is a problem with either the cluch or the sprocket, remove the side cover, check the clutch for damage, remove the drive sprocket and check the drive teath are not badly worn allowing the chain to slip within it, replace parts as required.

Hi There, we've bought a SX62 Baumr-AG chain saw. On page 8 of the instruction manual - Point 3: "Install the attached spike to the power unit" - there is no diagram that refers to this...

I have just bought one and the manual is hopeless but finally I figured it out. If you have installed the chain and guide you will need to remove them, then with the saw lying on the side and chain cover off you will see two holes on opposite side of the oil tank/engine casing

Had plug in saw 2 weeks and it dose not work /// it spins but dose not move blade just loud clicking noise

ok i assume it is an electric chain saw? chain usually gets loose and can jump off clutch sprocket . to remedy this there should be atleast one nut or bolt sometimes two nuts or bolts depending on brand and model on the side cover where bar and chain inter the clutch area remove those and cover will lift off second there is a screw that faces front next to bar should be a regular slotted screw head loosenit all the way up till bar gets loose and remove bar by pulling away from saw this will come off veryeasy and chain shoouls fit on teeth of clutch sprocket and fit back onto bar tighten screw till chain tightens up on bar then replace cover and nuts on side cover but do not tighten the with one hand put tension on chain by pulling down on it while tightening screw till chain feels elastic snapping back to bar then toghten up nuts . chain should have no more then 1/4 inch slack around bar this is the correct tension youshould maintain.

My Baumr Ag sx62 leaks bar oil.

The white plastic thing you talk about is spare impeler for the chain oil pump, but you should find it is a different thread which will slow down the oil flow, well it did for me. i have owned one of these saws for three years now and it still goes like a freight train. before you put them to use you must make sure the carby is set right. because if its running to lean or not enough oil in the fuel, Yes it will seize every time. All you have to have is a little bit of an understanding in small engine mechanics. Yes they do leak a little oil, just fill it when you want to use it. a chainsaw should use one tank of fuel to one tank of oil, no more than two tanks of fuel to one tank of oil.

I have a Baumr-ag sx62 chainsaw I put a new chain on it now i can't fit the side cover back on

Loosen the chain tension adjustment screw a few turns so that the tang from the adjuster will drop into the large hole at the rear of the bar. You may need to jiggle the bar in and out a little to engage the tang. Once you do, the cover should drop into place securely. With the attachment nut(s) slightly loose, adjust the chain so that it doesn't droop from the lower side of the bar, yet still turns fairly freely by hand. Tighten the fasteners on the side plate and recheck the chain tension. Hope this helps!
