1. 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.
2. 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.

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: trying to replace gear on echo cs 440 chain saw

The IPL for a model 400 Echo can be found here:
http://www.echo-usa.com/pdf/documentation/CS400_C090_11_081007.pdf
It should not matter but please verify this fits your serial number.
From the IPL your saw has an outboard clutch. Use this the following as a guide. I didn't see any special tools on the IPL.

  1. Check at the IPL for your saw to see if any special tools are needed.
  2. A length of starter cord or nylon rope may 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. It is probably a left handed thread (tighten it to loosen it).
    Let us know how it worked for you. GL

How to reassemble chain brake on an Echo CS-350T that jammed and was pulled apart by someone else?


From what I see you will need assemble thing leaving the main spring and brake cover off. Before attempting to put the main back in install a clutch drum inside the brake band. Then you slip on the main spring and pry the end on with a flat blade screw driver. Now install in the cover for the spring and brake. Reset the chain brake and remove the drum.

Now install the chain brake on the saw and test. Do not trip the chain brake without the clutch drum in place. If these are anything like the Husqvarna version after they get worn they will get where it is nearly impossible to reset.

How do you replace clutch on cs 350 echo chain saw


I am guessing what you are calling the clutch band is the anti kickback brake. It is operated by a "lever" in front of the hand grip on the front of the saw. Pull that lever towards the rear of the saw to get more slack in the band.

Lowering idle speed does not stop chain on ECHO SC chain saw?


I will need more information. Will the chain stop if touched to a log? Is it just creeping along compared to the speed of the motor or matching the speed of the motor? Has the saw been used enough to have saw dust build up inside the clutch and keep it engaged?

Chain brake not working needs adjistment


I found several outlets that said they sell Echo chain saw parts but none of them could come up with the ones I needed. It seems that ECHO doesn't want anyone repairing their equipment except their dealers who seem to easily get the parts.
I took the saw to a dealer an hour from here and he put a new clutch, drumb, bearing, and some other small parts in that clutch area. The saw runs fine now so I won't need farther help. Your solutions was correct but I just wasn't able to get the parts and do it myself. Thanks 2bigal
