What will cause the chain to stop turning when clutch(brake)cover gets final tightening?

If this is a Husqvarna, then it is crucial to make sure your brake is not set, when removing the cover. Rotate the blade to make sure it is moving freely, then remove the cover without setting the brake. However, as time went on, it still happened occasionally and seemed to be a defect in the saw. I had a Husqvarna Rancher, which drove me berserk, until I removed it, entirely. Not recommending that last course of action, but it is something that is common to this saw.

What turns the worm gear on the oiler onhusqvarna 142

There should be what looks like a widely spaced spring on the motor shaft, which then turns the gear on the pump. If that "spring" is missing, then your oiler won't pump. The spring comes in a kit you get when replacing the oil pump.

I recently replaced the worm gear from my backup saw which is an older 372 xp and upon taking out the old one noticed that it was fit with a metal inner piece and that the one I bought at the shop had

The early pump gear was all plastic, the later gear has a metal arm rather than plastic to increase the service life of the gear, the later gear fits with the later oil pump with a laberinth on the outer face to stop dirt entering, both types run on a removable steel bush that slides onto the crank.

Haqve model #142 chain saw with very little oil to chain, cleaned every thing all holes are clear new oil and still have problem. also checked worm gear and it is good Have chain saw 3 years, only...

There is a filter in the tank on the end of the oil pick up pipe, if you have checked the gear you must have already removed the cluch and sprocket, if you now remove the two screws holding the pump and take it away, behind here is the pick up pipe, pull it out with long nose pliers and inspect the filter, the later machine has an up graded pick up and delivery tube in one to stop any leakage, if you have a seperate delivery and pick up pipe i would suggest changing to the later pipe part no. 545037101, if this still does not help it will have to be a new pump part no. 530014410.

Mixer makes a clicking noise and beater stops turning or mixing...gear seems to be slipping...

The only part that consistently wears out is the Worm Gear Follower located inside the Transmission housing. The teeth are wearing out and becoming chipped. The clicking noises you hear are made by the Worm Gear banging on the Follower. All the teeth of the Follower are now damaged and the Planetary stops rotating.
Removal and replacing of the Worm Gear Follower is no easy task. Let me know if you need help.
(Do not try to remove the Planetary assembly by forcing it with a screwdriver. That is not how it's done.)

My Husqvarna 142 doesn't pump oil. In the parts list it seems there is a. a new pump, b. a worm gear, c. a pick-up?, d. a filter. How do I get the clutch/bearing assembly off to clean/ replace these parts?...

You are the only one that can determine what part or parts are defective (we cannot see the parts). If you are not comfortable making that determination a I recommend a local Stihl or Husky seller/mechanic.
Oil System Plugged.
  1. Remove the clutch cover, bar, and chain, clean the bar groove, any holes and passages on the rear of the bar (both sides, consider rotating the bar) Clean the saw oiler hole and channel. Insert a blunted, hooked piece of wire through the oil filler hole and pull the hose in the oil tank out. Pay attention to the screen or filter on the free end (clean or replace, difficult to determine serviceability). Start the saw and see if it oils when revved up. If yes reassemble your saw. If no, continue with 2.
  2. Work your way through the linkage cleaning and replacing any defective parts as you go. Carefully check the hoses for cracks especially at bends and connections. If equipped with an oil pump it is usually behind the clutch (clutch is a left handed thread). Please make extensive notes & some digital pictures will help during reassembly.
If it does not oil on completion of 1 it is most likely a bad oiler or worm gear. Please see the IPL to aid in oiler component identification. HTH

The oiler and worm gear are behind the outboard clutch(often under sheet metal cover). This will help with clutch removal:
R² Drive Link Outboard Clutch by

  1. Check the IPL for your saw to see if any special tools are needed.
  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 starter cord or nylon rope 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).
Enter the 3 digit model number (no XPs, Es, just the numbers)
Serial number decode – useful when downloading IPLs and Manuals
06 1500198
06 = year produced – 2006 (single digit before 2000)
15 = week produced - March
00198 = 198th unit Husky produced that week
