Macson 110 Chainsaw - burnt out clutch

Hi, I have inherited a Macson 110 chainsaw with a great motor but the clutch is kaput, as in the alloy weights have melted onto the insides of the steel sprocket carrier. Interestingly the sack it came in had a new spare clutch cover with the safety brake band.

So far haven't been able to find a replacement and I'm toying with cobbling up a direct drive bodge.

The OD of the clutch is 2 7/8 " ( 7.3 cm )

Any suggestions as to a clutch from another make or model which might be able to be modified to get this little puppy going again ? I have friends who can do excellent welding.

Thank you so much for that info Markiz37. Yes, I'm in Australia, and I have been to a dozen mower and chainsaw shops, none have been helpful. Will chase up that eBay link right away.

They don't ship goods to Australia

All is good ! Picked up a parcel from the US today with a very nice secondhand clutch from that e-Bay link, thanks, they changed their shipping policy to Australia.

Altho described as used it's in remarkably good shape. It has just been fitted but it's 10 pm local time here so a bit late to crank it up for a little test run.
