I have had similar situations. Since I rebuild as a hobby for a little extra money, I have time to waite and search on ebay.
The last Echo CS520 took over a month to find at a good price.

I have had to use heat a few times. Usually use a small propane burner. I might add that I seldom tighten the clutch with tool. Just spin it tight and REMEMBER to engage chain brake before starting. Then rev about 1/3 throttle with brake released and engage brake or start cutting.

No not yet.  I've tried heating with propane torch and when I really put pressure on it with a ratchet it feels like something is bending but springs back.  Afraid to break the con rod and make the repair worse than it is.
Thanks,

Lee

Ok so took it to a dealer to pop the clutch. Got the P&C apart and my heart sank scoring!  I was sold this saw a s a runner too.

****, but wait it's only aluminum deposits mso it can be removed Yhea!  So far just using steel wool and scotch brite.
