Q:

Husqvarna 455 Rancher

A:

Thank you for your question on the chain saw.

From experience I have found that if the saw is cold blooded when starting from cold it is running too lean.

One way to confirm that is to take a little fuel and remove the air cleaner and drop it down the throat of the carburetor.

If it starts quickly I would open the low speed jet on the carburetor about a 1/8 of a turn.

Since you have are very knowledgeable with these small engines it I am sure you have tied a number of things that have not worked.

You may also have to adjust the throttle screw to get the engine to idle correctly.

Please let me know if it works for you and we can continue troubleshooting to get this saw to start easier.

Thank you for the update. I didn't think you would have had a way to check the compression other that feel on the pull cord. I would have thought the dealer would have done the compression check. I believe it should be between 95 to 110 psi. I am glad the dealer is going to repair it for you under warranty. Sam A.

That sounds great. With the compression release it is a little hard to tell by just pulling the rope. Sam A.

Q:

attempted to remove the bar cover on a husqvarna 455. it is new and after removing to bolts it appears that the clutch spring is attached to to cover.

A:

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem removing the cover. Once the nuts are removed and the brake is off there should not be anything else holding the cover. I recommend making sure the brake is released. If you have the handle pulled back, try pushing it forward. You should feel the spring tighten the brake. If you do feel the tension, pull it back and try to remove the cover. If it will not come off you can try to work the brake band off the clutch drum with a long flat screwdriver.
I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance.
Thank you for using Manage my life. Mark T.
