run a saw, as a engine, with no Bar and Chain attached.
« on: April 24, 2015, 10:55:53 am »
If you were going to run a saw, as a engine, with no Bar and Chain attached.
Would you just not add bar oil? Will that hurt anything?
I do not care if the oiler system gets ruined, but do not want to hurt the overall saw.
Do I remove the oiler parts?

what would you do?

This is for a Husky 142 Clamshell
MIGHTY HUSKY 235
BESTEST SAW EVER!

Make sure the clutch is tight and that the clutch bell is over the clutch shoes or everything will grenade never to be found again.

Thats what I would do, just not put bar oil in.

Think of all the go karts, bikes etc with chainsaw motors on them.

Go kart engines didn't have oil pumps, I would remove the pump and plug the tank outlet. As was mentioned, make darn sure the clutch is tight. I had one depart an XL-12, good thing no one was anywhere near me.

A Clutch assembly zooming around on the garage floor and ricocheting off the walls is rather scary.
