Would anyone know if its easy replacing the clutch in an Echo CS-370 or should I have a Echo dealer do it? I think it seized. I can't pull the starter cord. Its about 7 years old, Thanks

just buy a new one not worth the time and money to fix it.

Sounds much more likely that the motor is seized and not the clutch. You should still be able to pull over a saw with a stuck clutch specially if the bar and chain are off.

Brett's right, Jeff's wrong!) a clutch is very simple to change (and cheap) but it should still pull over with a bad clutch, did you try taking the spark plug out then give it a pull? That'll narrow it down. Dean (Login purplelab)

I will do that today!
But I can pull the chain around the bar by hand but cant pull the cord. Dean (Login purplelab)

Took the plug out but still could'nt pull the cord so I'm guessing the motor seized.
