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

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.

SOURCE: Poulan Pro Clutch Removal
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

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.
