Hey my buddy's 372 had the spring pop out from under the presence lever while he was blowing out his saw with compressed air. Him and I had a quick go at it in his sub zero, dimly lit garage, had no luck, then it was sent home with me because I'm the saw mechanic.
So before I go out in my freezin' azz shop, what is the easy way to reassemble these?
I was planning on dropping the back end of the tank and driving out both trigger pins.

Drive out the pin just holding in the interlock- after it is out- rotate the interlock slightly to the right and dip the nose of it down and you'll be able to work it out.

After it is out- you'll see the tab on the left side of it where the end of the spring goes.

Thanks again , worked like a charm, almost. I had to nudge the trigger lever toward the starter side of the saw with a long thin screwdriver to get the operator presence lever to release, I appreciate the help.IMG_0340.JPG IMG_0341.JPG

When I got my 385 the OP lever and spring were missing. When I got the new parts I think I dicked with it for over an hour.
