Hello DJ; I suspect she is has some age. The IPL I found (below) shows an outboard clutch and no chain brake.
http://www.ordertree.com/modelinfo/PWE/3400-Gas-Saw/75.3400-Gas-Saw.1.59.1.html it may be helpful with disassembly. Clutch detail is on the "Handle Bar Assembly" print.

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 certain 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. Most (99.9%) clutches have left hand threads (tighten it to loosen it). If a finger nail held in the thread and rotated clockwise comes off the shaft it is a left hand thread. If it pinches against the clutch it is a right hand thread.

If you have more questions or need additional help please reply below and I will get back to you. HTH & Good Luck.

I have poulan countervibe 3700 chainsaw, starts great, revs up nice but when I go to cut it lacks power especially cutting sideways. it finally will stall.


The diaphragm in the carburetor allow the unit to run upside down or sideways. I think you may have a diaphragm that is not pumping fuel well. Rebuilding the carburetor may fix the issue.

How do i remove clutch assembly on a poulan 445 pole saw ?


First you need to remove clutch drum. Inside the center is a trox that need to be loosen to remove it. Then you will to remove the spark plug so you block the piston movement using a piston stop or fill the cylinder with rope. The itself is left handed threaded and there will an indicating arrow on it as which way is off.

Poulan Countervibe 3400 will not start


In all of those years, the fuel and oil lines will have deteriorated as well as the rubber components in the carburetor. The fuel filter in the tank is probably also plugged. Remove the spark plug and check for spark--it should be blue and snappy. Check the condition of the primer bulb--it should be soft without holes or cracks. Try some fuel in the cylinder head and reinstall the plug. It should pop a few times if in firing condition. Replace the air cleaner and check the muffler for plugging. Pretty much a major tune up! Hope this helps!

Go to m-and-d.com then parts diagram then illustrated parts online then parts look up then select oem poulan then poulan then saw then look at list of models you will find 3400. Have worked on one or two of the 3400 and they seem to be a fairly good saw for home use.
