    How is the sprocket removed on a Poulan 16" chain saw?

    It would appear that this item is unscrewed. How is the crankshaft held, while unscrewing this?

    I usually just use my cordless impac and zip the nut off, if it wants to turn then just a small grip by hand usually does it, course look for the arrow as far as the right direction of rotation... good luck. :drinkup:

    try a piece of starter rope stuffed in the spark plug hole.
