I have found the manual , looking for a parts breakdown . My concern is being s electric saw it's clutch may be different
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
So, what do I do? I identified it as an electric chainsaw from get go. I'm sure a manual for any saw other than a 3.0 hp model no.,. MS 1630 - 6097-210201 would be no help.
Expert:  Briggs-Fan replied 10 months ago.
The manual is for your saw. I'm just looking for a parts breakdown to see the clutch etc .
