Customer Question

I have a Sears Chainsaw Model No.###-##-####with 18 in. Bar. I'm trying to change the air filter and spark plug, but CANNOT loosen the 3 screws that hold the cylinder cover in place. It is not clear what type of fitting I need to loosen. Please help & let me know how I can remove these screws? Thank you. Bob Long

Are the screws too tight? or are they the torq screws with the internal six sided star?

Find the approriate size driver and while holding pressure on the screw, hit the driver , which will loosen the screw.
