What causes the Clutch drum gear that drive the chain to go bad ? my chain eats a groove all the way through it aftr about 12 hrs of cutting I have replaced it 3 times now.

The chain you should be using should be a .325 pitch and not a 3/8.

Never over tighten the chain, it will wear and stretch with time, which is why you should regularly check the chain tension. To get it right you should be able to lift 2 drive links clear of the bar. The chain will naturally wear groves into the spur sprocket, there is no conversion to a rim spricket for this model. Rim sprockets allow the chain to move along the sprocket easier and takes the wear away form the clutch drum.

Why does my clutch unscrews when i start the chainsaw?

You should never under any circumstances run the saw with the bar, chain and brake not connected, the clutch is a left hand thread and self tightening, run the saw at full revs and put the brake on, this will tighten the clutch.

My Stihl MS280 has to be pulled 8 - 10 times to start and after warming up and finishing a cut, wants to run continously at high rpm. It does NOT have a Hi and Lo screw. Please advise correct repair...

Taking into account that you have corrected any other deficiencies, this unit should have electronic ignition. If you experiencing run time issues, seek an authorized sthil dealer for repair.

What happened to my request for the proceedure to follow in changing a clutch in a sthil 18 inch chainsaw? you've charged me $6 and i've read your return email once and then it disappeared off my computer...

I have no idea who you talk to before?But i will try and help.You need to remove the side cover and bar.The clutch unscrews counter clockwise.You can use a something like a punch and hammer.Give it a quick hit and it should come loose.Put it back on the same way.Just give it a couple hits to tighten.If the teeth on the clutch cover are very worn replace that also.Anything else I can help with just send me a email.They usually come off fairley easy.

I have a sthil 026pro i know where the screw is for the ajustable oiler but what way should i turn it for more oil

Anti (counter) clocwise increases oil flow (I think - it's been a while).
you won't damage it if you get wrong. Make your ajustment and rev the saw to maximum, pointing the tip of the bar at a reflective surface (about 2 inches away) for about 20 seconds if you see a layer of liquid covering about half an inch wide then the oil is ok.
