Question about Poulan 16Inch 30 HP Electric Chain Saw 1630

Open Question

I have a Poulan 3.0 Peak HP 1630 and I am having a problem with it. It is slipping in inside the the saw, so I took it apart and seen that the big plastic or fiberglass gear has its teeth worn down. It has a part number on it 29241. I bought the saw at Canadian Tire here in Ontario Canada and I was wondering where I could get this gear/sprocket? I live in Hanover ontario Canada. N0G 1R0. Thanks Brian Bieman

my name is Dennis Gladx and I can assist you with the problem of getting the sprocket off of the crankshaft of your chainsaw.

To remove the centrifugal clutch and sprocket you unscrew it from the crankshaft and it has a left hand thread. Also a little trick to remove anything from a crankshaft that could turn while you want to unscrew the item, Remove the spark plug and insert some rope into the cylinder for the piston to squeeze against and you will jam the piston without damage.

Glad to be of assistance Please rate this solution because I can learn from your rating. Thank you

SOURCE: Bar sprocket smokes, gets hot spot

Sounds like you're not getting enough oil to the chain. Basically you've got an oil pump, pickup and filter involved in getting oil from the resovior to the chain/bar. If you cleaned the obvious area and the chain is not coated with oil, you may have a clog further up (inside) the oil delivery mechanisms. Also, drain the oil from the tank, and see if you can "blow" air through there. With the saw running & pointed down, you should be able to see oil on the ground being slung off the chain, if not, you are not getting enough oil to the chain.

Yes there is a special tool to engage on the clutch. You can get it from the Poulan web site - I think it is part number 31112 - cost about $5. Maybe you can get by without it, by using a screwdriver and hammer, but the tool was easy and risk free. You also have to stop the piston, as the previous poster said. I Googled how to do this, and the consensus seemed to be that it's easiest to stick rope down inside the cylinder, avoiding pusing it through the exhaust port. That worked like a charm. I used a hammer to hit a wrench on the clutch tool to break it loose.

Many thanks to the original answerer for getting me on the track to solving this.

Current USA model Poulan saws can be found here:

If Poulan is willing to offer a full warranty (2 years) and parts are readily available I'm not certain I'd care about the year of manufacture. I would contact Poulan to ensure "Antique Tractors" is an authorized dealer and that there will be no warrenty problems should I have a claim here:
There is a phone number at the bottom.

All new saws regardless of maker are set to run extremely lean to meet EPA mandated air quality standards. All new saws are fitted with a device to restrict richening the carburetor beyond initial factory settings also required by the EPA. Most big box stores put them on the shelf and sell them to the consumer with no thought of how elevation may impact saw performance or longevity. Homeowners usually aren't concerned about changes in the saws performance until it quits operating. This combination results in many destroyed saws and homeowner saws of most brands being called junk!

Find a local chainsaw seller/mechanic. If they pull a saw off the shelf and hand it to you without making some adjustment or minimally ensuring it will run hand it back and leave. You can get this service at a big box store cheaper. Find a different seller/mechanic and try again. A good dealer will help you arrive at a saw that will meet your needs. He will ensure it runs properly and you have an understanding of how to properly operate it. Should a problem arise you have somewhere to go and if you treated your dealer properly someone in your corner helping you rectify your problem.
Sorry about the sermon. HTH

SOURCE: want to change sprocket on poulan 4620 avx to 3/8,

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:

  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).
Good Luck. HTH

My saw threw a blade . I took it apart to put the blade back on I have tried everythingbut the blade ,which is the proper one isI about 1-2 links too long. this is w/ the tensioner all the way out. Any...

I would say that it's time for a new chain. After using for varying periods of time the chain will stretch too far to be used anymore. This is caused by heating during usage. Some things that will cotribute to chain wear out are insufficient bar oil, dull chain or just every day wear. I think if you get anew chain you'll be fine. When I'm tensioning my chains I run the saw at high rpm for a couple of mins. Shut off and grasp chain by mid-point of bar and lift up. I try to get enough space to slip a nickle between bar and bottom of chain. You should check tension often, as over tightening also adds to wear on chain and motor. Hope this helps you. Thanks

I took the side cover off the saw and a piece that looked like a roll pin fell out and i don't know where it goes

There are no roll pins listed. The only pin listed is part of the bar adjustment mechanism. Are you certain it is not a small piece of branch? Are you certain it is a model 1630? (All Poulan Models)
The dash number of your serial number is the type.
