Question about McCulloch Garden

1 Answer

In my model 47 chainsaw manual page 22, it details how to time the saw by using 1/4" rod on the back side if the flywheel to determine the beginning of the opening of the points. Later the manual refers to checking for the proper breaker gap, My problem is this, how do I make the points open wider? and how do I do it " I suspect that my saw won't start because of this. It just pops and sometimes pulls the cord back in. Marvin Vincent ghostridermv@midco.net cell 218-766-7721

How do I test the Timing on my Craftsman 42cc/18" chainsaw? How di I set the Timing?


Ron Davis:

Your saw can be knocked out of time by a sudden stoppage (such as the chain popping off of the bar and stopping the saw suddenly). The flywheel has slipped on the driveshaft.

To correct the timing on your saw, first, you will need to remove the bar and chain. remove the side cover with the bar and chain. remove the engine from the engine housing, then remove the pull cord and spring assembly. The flywheel will be visible now. Use a puller to carefully remove the flywheel (don't crack the flywheel by putting the puller jaws on a weak part of the flywheel). Replace the small square key that fits between the flywheel and the crankshaft (it must fit snugly). Reassemble the saw, and the timing should be correct. the space between the flywheel and the magnetic pickup is very small (0.10") but the pickup can not touch the flywheel at any point. ( I have used a matchbook cover to get the proper spacing). The slots in the flywheel and the crankshaft must match exactly for the saw's timing to be correct. It's a time consuming process, but properly done, your saw will run again. The metal key that fits between the flywheel and the crankshaft can be purchased at any lawnmower repair shop or at Lowe's or Home Depot. Just make sure it is the exact same size as the original.

I'd like to know what steps to take to replace the contact points on a 1978 Poulan Micro XXV Super Deluxe 14" chain saw


Its a long time since i saw one of these, however, start by removing the starter cover screws and the starter itself, you need to remove the flywheel nut,1/2 spanner as far as i remember, strike the non magnet side of the flywheel with a suitable hammer, the flywheel should just pop off, remove the points back plate cover, this should just pull off, the points and condensor are all one peice, held with two screws, either clean the points or replace the assembly, the back plate will have slots to allow you to set the points gap, the gap is between 12 and 15 thousands of an inch, put a small amount of grease on the felt pad against the cam, refit the flywheel and nut, take care to re fit it onto the woodruff key properly, the air gap between the coil and the flywheel should be set at approx 0.5mm, re fit the starter and check for a spark.

My McCullough chainsaw series 3200 is leaking oil, all the oil drained out. i need a manual.


Operator Manuals for McCulloch are difficult to find and will not help with this problem unless you want a repair facility. You can try here:
Operators Manuals: are much more difficult. I have dialed this number many times (Contact Us - All McCulloch Products 1 (800) 521-8559) and have yet to get a satisfactory response. Please try this! If enough of us try they will fix it!

You provided no model number; this one was given in a 3200 fuel problem I answered earlier. An IPL for the model you provided follows (this is actually a 3214, I have never found a 3200):
http://www.ordertree.com/modelinfo/MCC/11-600032-32-Mac-3214-06%2F93-IPL-211229/139.11-600032-32-Mac-3214-06%2F93-IPL-211229.1.59.1.html
It is the only 600032-32 here:
McCulloch IPLs (all)
The IPL (exploded parts list) for your saw is the only detail for the oil system is sketchy at best. Oiler components and part numbers are listed but may be on different illustrations. They are also beneficial with disassembly/reassembly:
http://www.ordertree.com/modelinfo/McCulloch/139.59.html
There is a less detailed print here:
Chainsaws 32cc-35cc

On this block of saws the oil pump is under the flywheel and there are many hoses. Please use the IPL to identify and locate oiler parts. I hope you find a burst hose. There are oil pump repair kits listed. Unless the pump has an obvious crack or hole I would not attempt to change it until I had exhausted all other possibilities.

This works for older MCs but MTD (this one) saws often deviate from the explanation. It will give you a little guidance if you try to locate a different IPL.

I know it is not plugged but this may also be helpful.
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), if equipped with a sprocket nose ensure it rotates easily at least one complete revolution. 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 (oozes down side of saw). If yes reassemble your saw. If no, continue with 2.
  2. Work your way through the linkage (use IPL to identify components and locations) 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 (see IPL).

These are very difficult to work on, most saw shops will not attempt a repair. I hope the chainsaw Gods smile on your undertaking. Good Luck. If you have more questions or need additional help please reply below and I will get back to you. Thank you for using FixYa HTH

I got no oil coming out of my chainsaw


You provide no model or serial numbers , limiting how much help I can provide. Brevity for a repair where the item cannot be touched or inspected helps no one.

Oil


While Bar Chain oil will probably work, the owners manual (sitting in front of me) on page 9 says to "use SAE #30 motor oil". This is the owners manual for Models: M12510US, M15012US, M15014US, M15014AS, M30016US, M30016AS, M30016AW, M35016UW, M35016AW. Remington Electric Chain Saw

Adjust carburetor gas and air intake on craftsman chainsaw


There is too much information to relay so I would suggest you go to Searspartsdirect.com and type in your saw number and on the right side there is an area for a manual. You will need to use your email addy and select a password for this but it is free. You can view or download the manual and the area you need is on page 15. Let me know if this won't work and I will copy and retype info requested.
