    I took apart the clutch/sprocket housing, and where the weights are, it seems to be missing a spring connection between the weights.

    Does anyone know exactly how this works?

    The spring kinda looks like a Slinky that passes thru the 3 weights, but like I said, it is missing one section.

    Can I buy a new spring, do I have to get a whole new assembly? What?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    thanks,

    BS.

    chain won't stop.

    The spring is used to pull the weights in. When the rpm is raised, centrifugal force overcomes the springs and forces the weights into the drum. As for where to get parts; I'm sure you could find them somewhere on the web. Rich.

    Your best bet is a Makita dealer, as they bought them out. If no luck, the web is the place.

    there's a Makita Rep in Denver, I've talked to them myself, (I have a 115 that needs some parts, someday) The Info is out there, do a search. I don't remember right off. Good Luck. Interesting handle, Bush Sniffer.

    Thanks guys

    I'll try dissassembling the clutch first, to see if I can reattach the spring together before I go searching for parts.

    Also, if anyone knows, can I put a bigger bar on the same model saw?

    Thanks!

    Sniffer out!

    That would depend on what length of bar you have on it now.

    Hi Bushsniffer,

    Maybe you have already tried this, but if not, I would adjust the throttle screw before disassembling the clutch. It's a heck of lot easier and quicker! :)
