Craftsman 16" Electric Chainsaw.

Separated from:

I have had a continuing problem with stripped gears on my Craftsman 16" electric chainsaw. It happened after about 2 hours of use the first time and Sears replaced the saw. The gears stripped on the new saw a couple years later (maybe 3 hours of use). I replaced the gear from a 3rd party supplier and it failed after about an hour of use. Each time only the bottom 2/3 of the gear is stripped, like it's not seating properly, but it did go together okay. Perhaps a bad design. I got my new gear (which looked identical to the original one) at llrdbrn on EBay. Part was: McCULLOCH ELECTRIC CHAINSAW DRIVE SPROCKET/INNER GEAR 302855/6228-210104 NEW ( item: 181259113971)

Yeah, bad design. If you look at the one in the picture above, 2/3 to 3/4 of it is stripped as well. These were poorly made in my opinion. I missed the reply nearly a year ago saying it wouldn't come on. I hope JerMannSki got it going.
