Replacing a Spur Sprocket on a Husqvarna Chainsaw

Watch our video on how to replace a spur sprocket on a Husqvarna chainsaw.

A spur sprocket uses star-like teeth to rotate the chain around the bar. If the teeth wear down, the chain can slip or derail from the bar.
This video shows you how to easily replace a worn out spur sprocket.

Step 1:

Remove the top cover and remove the spark plug wire

Step 2:

Insert a piston stop tool in the spark plug hole to bind the piston

Step 3:

Remove the clutch with a hammer and punch or clutch removal tool by loosening it clockwise

Step 4:

Remove the old sprocket and lubricate the bearing if needed

Step 5:

Install the new sprocket and re-install the clutch

Step 6:

Replace the spark plug wire and top cover

    Hello…I have a Huaqvarna 350 chainsaw that I replaced the sprocket because the chain was slipping, however, it still slips. The sprocket is new, what would cause the problem?

      I,m no professional, but you might of gotten wrong size sprocket. All sprockets chains and bars have got to be the same, since you changed sprockets, I guessing there is your problem.

    Chain bar worn in excess, improper chain adjustment, thats about all thats left, except maybe the chain is streched.
