The old Stihls had bonded linings on the clutch shoes and yours are missing the lining. You need shoes as well as the spring.

Best to get a whole new clutch spider assembly

Thanks for the clarification.
I removed the clutch and took it to my local Stihl dealer.
He gave me 3 new springs for $3.
I asked if he saw anything else wrong with it.  He mentioned that some had linings on the shoes but could not tell if mine was one of them.

Installed the new springs, re-installed the clutch and fired it up.
Just a reminder here, this is not really my cutting saw, I have several other good saws to cut wood with.
THIS SAW is really my "learning saw" on how to take things apart and put them back together again.
Trying to teach this old dog some new tricks without costing too much money.

Now that the chain was not dragging, because of the clutch,  I was able to re-tune the carb that I had just rebuilt.
Really pretty easy when everything is working  ;D

I will keep an eye on the clutch and new springs.

Thanks all for your help.

Chuck
