Echo chainsaw how do you remove the clutch from an ehco cs400evl?
ANSWER : OK I looked at Echousa.com and see that there shoule be a hex nut on the side where the clutch is. It doesn’t specify whether it is left or right hand thread. but what I used to do is we have a plastic plug to put in the cylinder to stop piston from moving and then putting a ratchet on the hex nut. without the plug you can try an impact wrench to BUMP the nut in forward and reverse to remove it. Make sure the switch is off before attempting either action. You can look at the manual or parts explosion at the site I listed

Chain not moving on a running chain saw. – Echo 30.1CC Chainsaw With a 14 In.bar and Chain
ANSWER : Hi. Possibly the chain brake is engaged. It is the thing just in front of the forward handle. Try pulling it back, before starting the saw. It should click into place. This device is supposed to stop the chain in the event of a severe kick-back. If that’s not it, you are probably looking at a new clutch or maybe sprocket.

ANSWER : If the engine has good compression, and good spark, it should at least ‘pop’ several times. Check the flywheel ‘key’ as it may have sheared causing the ignition to be out of time. Hope this helps!

Echo 14 in chain hard to start – won’t keep running and began to smoke
ANSWER : Hard starting can sometimes be caused by a clogged air filter which is where I would start. Clean the filter, if you have the operators manual it explains how to do this, if you don’t have the manual check Echo’s website to see if you can download one. Next check the manual and see if the carburetor can be adjusted, but be very careful to follow the instructions in the manual exactly or you could do irreparable damage to the needle jets in the carburetor.
