Did this video help you?

graywriter123: Funny, I never need to remove the sprocket from a nice clean shiny saw like that! Good tutorial, though.

elsmitro: Helped a lot, thanks!

Moritz P: thank you! now i have learned how to change it :)

Gerard Woodhouse: Fantastic video, replacement of parts very well preformed. Very easy to follow, keep up the good work. 

Juantor Tor: Te doy las gracias por un detalle que fue lo de la piola en la bujia para sacar el volante del embriague, no tenia como sacarlo ok

Ariel Lezen: On my saw, the clutch appears to be backwards; the teeth for the chain are facing outwards and I can't see the inner parts. Help?

MsSomeonenew: Jesus, I thought the guy in the shop was just an idiot and didn't know how to do it properly, but you are actually suppose to jam something into the damn cylinder?! What kind of birdbrain design is that... Anyway good tutorial.

Arnold Long: Mark I learned a lot from this video , you make it look so easy , I was unaware they made a piston binder , if I were to replace many clutches I would purchase one of these for sure , one of the better videos I've watched , good presentation , ty <> Arnold

MarkyMark: nice tutorial .... THANKS !!!! 

Faye Duvall: A great video. Thanks .

Rafael F. Cardona: So nice for those who know... Thanks, very helpful..

Thomas Herbert: Dominic,, who the hell are you talking about ? the guy in video ? did you work on your saw ? 

Gregory Joy: he should have greased the sprocket bearing while he had it apart , or at least made mention of it . I had never seen the cord trick before. It would have good to see it actually done . 

backyardbirds: I can't seem to get the clutch/sprocket cover to go back in place on my Husky 345 after cleaning and replacing a chain. can you help?

Martin Benfield: Thanks. This was great. Best info I have gotten

willembeton: thanks for the tips !!

Cheryl MacKenzie: Dear Mark, Thank you very much for helping me rehab our chainsaw! Mystery dispelled, nothing to get hung about. C 

Jose Ferreira: yeah...use the string and ruin your piston/rings. what a dumb idea. do you know some people dont know it may get caught on the ports? oh nevermind. you just wanna sell some parts

Waseem Asghar: thanks great job,we learn a great trick to open it.

Duramax0530: Good video but wondering if hammering on that clutch will do any damage to the piston when it hits that stop?

wersuss: Thanks, also great site powermotors.lt/

WalshPhoto: Priceless video. Thanks

mindfreak001009: hi there, please can you tell me the advantage/disadvantage of spur and rim sprockets, try to buy one for my father's farm in the Philippines, thank you so much! really learned a lot!

kevin d: Excellent video, your making it look to easy. :)

byran garcia: 1. I put the string in the piston, it turned over and caught my string. 2. string is caught in piston now. 3. now I have to either take my brand new chainsaw apart or bring it to a shot so I can look like an idiot... oh yeah can u take a shoe lace string out of my piston yeah thanks. worst idea to lock the clutch up ever

William VanNess: Smart fella might tie a big knot on the end of that cord. Be pretty irritating for that loose end to slip down that mouse-hole and disappear.

DownTownBrown71: I assume that you are now running around with just one shoe on???

Jakewick1: Is it likely that an old chainsaw's clutch cannot be replaced or removed?

Lord Vaders: i have a homelite chain saw and when i start it it runs great but as soon as i touch it to a single peice of wood it bogs down really bad. i already rebuilt the carburator. any think you might be able to think of? Thanks,

eReplacementParts.com: Check the spark arrestor in the muffler and make sure that it isn't plugged. If it looks good the next thing I would look at is cylinder wear which would lead to lack of compression. Use a compression tester to check the cylinder compression. It should be around 110lbs. Anything less than 70lbs. would indicate a worn out cylinder and piston rings. I hope this helps, -Mark

Don Brown: This was very well done. Thank You! I would like to find an e-how video on how to do a basic carburetor kit. I my case a sthyl chain saw 290. I would love to know if I'm doing it all right. I'm a video editor do you have your own staff or could I help? See next video post.

JEREMY FOUNTAIN: always always always replace the clutch drum bearing

jon hepden: Thanks you this video was most helpfull.

gmax666: You should mention that the piston should be above the exhaust port before you poke the rope in.

eReplacementParts.com: @Sasquatch7foot A spur sprocket will begin to develop grooves on the drive surfaces when it is worn. A rim sprocket will develop indentations on the surface of the drive holes. My saw is also a model 55. When I purchased it it was also .325" pitch. I replaced the sprocket, bar, and chain and converted it to 3/8" pitch. I run a 16" bar on it which is enough for most jobs. It sure cuts fast with the 3/8" pitch chain! Thanks for watching, -Mark

chasesrc: Very cool trick using a screw driver & hammer. Thanks for the great video, my clutch just burned up on Saturday!

ensen89: Right. I made a home-made clutch key. Just a piece of wood with two screws in it. I had to built it twice, because the first version wasn't strong enough and broke. Srewdriver didn't work. I don't like pounding on maschines, it's better to apply "soft torque"

Joseph7296: Hi Mark--quick question..I'm new to chainsaw repair. I have a Husqvarna 353 saw and I removed the two C shaped clutch springs thinking I needed to do this in order to replace a spur sprocket. Is there a special way to get the springs back on to the clutch? I can't seem to do it. Great video and thanks in advance for answering my question.

Don Baker: Excellent information useful also for Tanaka. Comment about making up a tool with 2x1 wood about 3 feet and putting in 2 screws is the answer for an old machine rather than the hammer and screwdrive method. Thanks everyone for useful info Don at Buckinghamshire UK

Richie Burke: there called nuts ...lol not bolts

realman68751: These are the most informative videos I've been able to find . don't stop posting them as I will use them then buy my parts from eparts...thank you

norman1987: Where do you buy a "piston binding tool?

MARIJAN KUČEJ: Thanks

John Flowers: can u show how to fix a throttle peddle's safety on a chainsaw

Maltinis: thx, great and informative video!

robertkathleen1: very informative..thank you

DownTownBrown71: Once you remove your drive sprocket, before installing your new part, should you not remove and grease your roller bearings before reassembly?

Felicia Clarke: as a mechanic can you give me a tip, I changed chain,bar,sproket and clutch on an old Dolmar 115, only problem is the clutch isn´t gripping, engine runs okay , chain rotates but as soon as you apply pressure it stands still. Have I got the wrong clutch or do I need to manipulate it in some way before mounting it

Old Guy: You just cant fix stupid so don't try!

pwleppa: A very good video. Thank you and best regards from Finland.
