Re: Husqvarna chain brake
You'll have to release the brake with the cover off the saw. You just need to find a way to brace it well enough. If you really can't do this, then it suggests your chainbrake is faulty, of ath the very least not adjusted right.

There is a number of ways to re load the brake, you can either remove the clutch and sprocket, the brake will then go back onto the saw enabling you to use the hand guard on the saw to load the brake ( to remove the clutch, there are two cut a ways in the clutch centre designed to enter a flat screw driver into, then strike with a suitable hammer to remove, it is a left hand thread ) or you can remove the hand guard from the saw and use this as a tool to re load the brake, or you can clamp the cover in a vice ( be carefull not to damage the cover ) then use a strudy pair of pliers or grips in the three legged loading mechanism and turn it to load the brake.
You need to make sure the blade is not damaged. You need
to release the chain tension screw, most cases; you turn in counter clock wise
to release the tension rod. Do it in the reverse when you reinstall chain to
tighten it back up to operating conditions.
You need to release the brake mechanism in the cover so that the brake band will expand enough to pass over the clutch drum. You should have released the chain brake before removing the cover, but that doesn't help now. Use a wide heavy screwdriver to release the mechanism. Hope this helps!
you should be able to release it with a flat screwdriver. you should see something that looks like a wheel where the chain brake locks to the brake handle when you put the cover back on. you should be able to twist that wheel and unlock it that way.
The chain brake should have been released before removing the cover. You will have to release it with a large flat-blade screwdriver in the connector that runs the brake from the control handle. Hope this helps!
the only way to get the cover back on that i have found is to take the clutch drum off,after the drum is off you reinstall the cover,pull the brake back to the of possition.take the cover back off,reinstall the drum,put cover back on.it's a real pain to do it this way but i've never figured out any other way.husqvarna doesn't know any other way either.hope this helps,let me know
the easiest way i have found to put that cover on is to remove the clutch drum,once you have the drum off you can put on the side cover and release the brake.once the brake is released you reinstall the clutch drum.let me know
OK. This is simple. Either the chain brake is engaged or the chain is too tight. Start by pulling back on the chain brake toward you. There should be a "click" if the brake was released. If the chain is still immovable, try resetting the chain tension.
1. remove the spark plug wire2. loosen the two clutch cover nuts3.hold the bar nose up and loosen the tension adjustment screw until the chain moves freely without becoming loose.4. tighten both clutch cover nuts with the bar held up.5. Pull the chain around the bar by hand. Loosen the adjustment if you feel tight spots.6. When the chain is properly tensioned,tighten clutch cover nuts securely. Do not overtighten!7. Check chain brake operation and release.8. Replace spark plug wire and operate saw. Hope this solution will Fixya.
