This machine has an inboard brake, there are no parts available for this brake, it is not easy to re assemble the spring, and load the brake, as this is sold as an assembly, and is a main safety device, i would suggest you just order up a new brake and refit, the part no. is 530071893 if you wish to rebuild it let me know and i will try to explain how its done.

    To reassemble the brake, refit the band into the houseing, use a suitable tool to compress the spring, use a pair of long nose pliers, push the unopened jaws into the end of the spring,once inside the spring it will stop it flying out and causing injury, once the spring is back in the houseing re fit the securing clip, to re fit the brake and load it you need to remove the clutch and sprocket, the sprocket is held on with a simple c clip, however there is a special tool to remove the clutch 530031112, this tool fits into the two cut a ways in the clutch centre, with a 19mm nut on the top, this allows you to jar it off against compression ( left hand thread ) it may be possible to make a tool for this purpose, once off the brake will now re fit onto the crankcase, and using the hand guard load the brake.

I am unable to get the bar and chain off of my Poulan Pro 260 42cc chainsaw because the stud for the clutch brake housing has broken loose inside the housing. When turning the clutch brake nut the clutch...


I ran into the same problem and I "cheated" my way through this. First of all, the thread is metric on the stud. Take an imperial nut and start to thread it on the stud. Don't force it, it will stop after half a turn. Now you hold the imperial nut with a socket or a wrench, and use a flat wrench to undo the other nut(the one that is stuck). It took me 2 minutes to remove it and no damage done at all.

Hope it helps

Unable to release chain brake on Poulan 2150 2.1c.i. Unable to reassemble the chain brake cover.


You should have released the chain brake before removing the side cover. Try using a wide, heavy, flat-blade screwdriver to release the toggle mechanism for the brake in the outer cover which should expand the brake ring to allow it to go over the clutch drum. Hope this helps!

I need to know how to replace the sprocket on poulan model 4620 chainsaw


A link to a Poulan "PP4620AV Gas Saw” follows (may not be your saw):
http://www.ordertree.com/modelinfo/PWE/PP4620AV-Gas-Saw/75.PP4620AV-Gas-Saw.1.59.1.html

If not your model number all IPLs can be found here:
The IPL (exploded parts list) for your saw is beneficial with disassembly/reassembly:
Poulan.com
http://www.ordertree.com/modelinfo/POULAN-WEED-EATER/75.59.html
The dash number of your serial number is the type.

The 4620 link has an outboard clutch remove it as demonstrated here (chain brake must be released else difficult to remove the clutch cover and impossible properly to reinstall):
R² Drive Link Outboard Clutch by Drivelink.blogspot.com
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cdqkIuVNUQc

  1. Check the IPL for your saw to see if any special tools are needed. Poulan (Craftsman, Jonsered, Husky) clutch removal tool part number 530031112 if needed, is under $5 from many sources (look at the visible area between the weights if 2 small round sockets are visible you need the tool).
  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 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.
  3. Everyone I have ever removed had a left handed thread (tighten it to loosen it).
If you have more questions or need additional help please reply below and I will get back to you. HTH & Good Luck.

Chain and sprocket won't move. Poulan P4018WT


Poulan P4018WT Gas Saw Type 2 link below (may not be your saw - 5 to choose from):
http://www.ordertree.com/modelinfo/PWE/P4018WT-Gas-Saw-Type-1/75.P4018WT-Gas-Saw-Type-1.1.59.1.html
It has an inboard clutch. If this is your saw remove the clutch cover, bar,
chain and inspect the chain brake linkage within. Is the brake band tight against the clutch drum? If yes grasp the forward most upper handle and pull it aft (may require some force at rear extreme) until it clicks (a keeper nests in a detent). Is there a little clearance between the brake band and clutch drum? Can you spin the clutch drum now? If yes reassemble your saw.

Jammed pull cord on Poulan P4018 chainsaw!


There maybe a split pin holding the cover down over the spindle! Not too sure, but possible. Could be pushed down the centre, just a case of having a good look. Only really worked with Hurqvarna's and Makita's. Hope it helps. Good Luck

Chain runs constantly how do you ajust the clutch or brake


It sounds as though the saw may be running to fast (centrifical clutch engaged) or the clutch springs are tired or broken.

Do this to inspect the clutch. Remove the drum and clean the interior while there.

The C-clips tend to fly when being removed. Please wear eye protection and exercise care.

There is also an idle adjustment for your saw too, the one seperated from the others. Often marked as T (throttle). GL
