Default Chain saw repair advice

The chain fell of just now while clearing some trees. Upon inspection the bar adjusting pin and screw kit parts (20 and 21) are missing. How did that happen...... :-) anyway, to replace them I have to take the bar mounting plate (23 off) - but to get to that I need to get the clutch assembly stuff (12, 10, etc.) off. How does that come off? This is a craftsman 14 in bar. I am wondering of I need special tools or something before I order these parts..

Any and all help is appreciated. This hasn't been my day. Am thinking of just going to the local shop in town and getting one of their Sthils...

Are you sure you have to take the clutch off to get the mounting plate off? You might not have to. If you do, clutches usually have a bolt in the end of them and you will most likely need a small puller to remove the clutch from the crankshaft. More than likely a woodruff key in there as well so be careful not to lose that when the clutch comes off...if it has to.

I've never seen a saw that you have to remove the clutch to get to the bar tensioner screw. Double check that. Post a pic of what you have after removing 23.

I've got a hardly used Stihl MS460 I'll sell ya for 500 plus shipping. The 460 is a real saw.

Thanks and you guys are right - I do not have to take that plate off!!!!

I can fit the stuff underneath - do you think these are screws and pin are standard or I gotta get them at sears parts.

Thanks again to all

Bob

PS Yes that stihl is nice but with my back (recovering) I have to use the lightest least powerful one I can find - there is a 179 stihl that would work for me.
