Q:

I need a drive sprocket for my electric chainsaw model 316-341070. Does any one know of a replacement?

A:

The sprocket for your chainsaw is still available. The source number in our Sears system has changed and our system does not recognize the change.

Ask the agent at Sears Parts Direct to run the part number MC-6228-211504 under source number 247 and you will receive the sprocket.

Q:

Craftman Electric Chainsaw

A:

Thank you for your question.
I am sorry you are having a problem with the saw. A few things will cause the saw to leak oil. They are a broken oil hose, worn pump, or a broken tank. First, put some oil in the tank. Then put the cap on but leave it loose. After it sits for a few days, check the saw for leaks. If not leaks are found the problem is the change in temperature. The cap has a vent to allow air into the tank but not out. When it is cool out air will enter the tank because of contraction. Once the oil warms up it expands and increases the pressure in the oil tank. Due to the fact the cap will not allow air out, the pressure forces oil to the pump. If left with pressure on it the oil will leak past the pump. This is somewhat normal. You can replace the pump but it could still leak when not in use. It is best to store the saw upright with the cap loose. If the saw seems to be leaking more than normal, you need to disassemble the saw and inspect for worn parts. First, unplug the saw and remove the bar and chain. Next, remove the drive sprocket from the saw. The drive is marked in blue in the image below. Once you have the drive removed, remove the screws in the housing to separate the two halves. After you have it apart look over the tank and hoses. If they look ok, I recommend replacing the pump. The parts for the saw can be ordered from the following link. Craftsman chain saw parts

I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance.
Thank you for using Manage my life. Mark
