This echo clutch tool also worked on the 550xp 545 saws. Might work on the 5000. It was for echo 4500 6700 I believe not 100% sure, would need to look up.

Pay attention, 2 different echo tools and no guarantee it will work on the 5000.    Also look at the thread I bumped for you on using sockets to make your own clutch removal tool.

I cant believe the punch method  didnt work for you.  Thats the one I use as last resort and gets the most stubborn clutches off.

If I was willing to dent up the Y bracket, it probably would.  But as soon as I saw a little ding in it, I stopped.  I fully admit that I am weird. :)

As you can see in the above pic of 5000 clutch it never had a ding taken off with punch method before.  You have to use a flat end round punch, set flat and punch downward for best results.

Art could you share your method of clutch removal on the 5000.  I dont know if I am coming across right in pm's.

I think I made a tool similar to the factory one.

Thanks for bumping the clutch tool thread.  It gave me an idea of what I had to do. 

I went to my local guy and he got the clutch off for me using a Shindawa clutch removal tool.  He said he couldn't sell me one, because he's not allowed to, and he paid high dollar for his. 

So I took the clutch to autozone and matched up the right sized diameter socket that would allow me to make my cuts in the grooves of the socket, which was 22mm.  It was nice to have the clutch off of the saw for that part of things.

I marked it off, used the Dremel to made my cuts, kept them *just* on the small side, then used a sanding rod to bring them out to the right size, and now I have the perfect clutch removal tool for the saw.  (It's still untested, but it sure looks like a winner)

It's past dinner time, so I'll get everything together tomorrow and make some cuts with .325 -- Then when my 3/8 bar comes in a few days, I'll be able to swap out the rim sprocket and feel the 3/8 powar! 

My local Stihl shop told me that can't give me true RS non safety chain in .325 .050 but he said their new "mini hump" cuts way better than their old safety chain, but that their real selection of .325 is in .063. 

He told me he can give me whaaaatever I want in 3/8.  So knowing that, I may end up just running 3/8 even in longer lengths.

Good job.

When I ran that chainsaw it always had 3/8" chain.
We should share what we know... someone may learn...
That knowledge can live after us... and that "Pays It Forward".
Be all that you can be . . .
