I’ve “spun off” 2-3 already. Saw hasn’t started yet just popped a little. Trying to figure out why I’m spinning them off and destroying them upon trying to start it. Could it be because I didn’t torque my clutch? Just kinda hand tightened. Any input? Anyone seen this? I keep having to set it aside n buy more E clips.

Some I've dealt with weren't exactly tight enough and would come rather easily, so I went to an OEM clip and problem is gone

That’s what I was goin on. But I think because the saw isn’t starting I’m rattling it loose pulling n pulling.

Hardware store E clips are about .010 thinner than the clips that come on saws.
I would not use them!

No $hit? Uh lol this damn thing. Every detail. Is that a pic of the oem one?
No it's the one that belongs on a 660... Much better design though. You have to drill it out to a slightly larger diameter though, but with the kits, you will keep throwing clips unless you do this... Or go OEM on the washer and clip. Your choice, but this is what I have found to work flawlessly.
