The clutch can be fastened to the crankshaft using threads or a key. Note: All saws built since 1990 will have the clutch threaded onto the crank shaft. The clutch has left hand threads and can be removed by using a piston stop to keep the engine from turning and using a socket or clutch spanner tool to turn the clutch off of the crankshaft.
