    I am currently rebuilding a Homelite c5 and had to buy a new crank case. The crank case I bought is from a c51 and has the crank shaft in it. I tried to put the clutch from the c5 on but it has a slightly bigger inner diameter and doesn’t fit on the c51 crank. Then I ordered a clutch from a c51 on eBay and it is the same exact size as the c5 clutch. I was wondering if Homelite changed the clutch part way through production or if something was titled wrong on eBay.

    Thanks, Kannon

    Gonna move this to the Chainsaws forum where you will likely get more and better replies on this subject.

    I have already returned the c-51 clutch, and then is no issues with the crank case it is all on the crank shaft.
