    How do I remove the sprocket/clutch assembly to replace it? Does Husky make a clutch wrench? If so, where could I get one? Would I need a piston locking screw? Also, what are your recommendations on chainsaw repair books? Thanks alot. David

    Most folks remove the sparkplug and insert a piece of rope on top of the piston to lock the crankshaft in order to remove the clutch. I am not familiar with the husky however.

    David< I don't think you need a special tool to remove the clutch on a 51 model. It has a hex head that is left hand thread. So all you need is a piston stop which you should be able to pick up Ace hwde. I use an impact, although It's not recommended. As far as a workshop manual, Husqvarna should be able to supply those to you.
