The stud never changed through production, it is part no. 501454301 should be available through your local dealer, or on the web, it can be fitted without splitting the crankcase, with some thin wall tubing and pulling through the oil filler hole.

Testimonial: "Thanks Andrew White for the help.I have ordered the stud and the nut.Do you know if the stud screwa in from the outside or do i have to take it apart?I will know the anser when the stud gets here,but thought I would ask.Thanks again for your help."

    The stud is a press fit from the inside, if you have a magnet on a stick you can feed the styd through the oil filler hole, you will need to mark a top dead centre on the tip of the thread, the reason for this is the stud has a sqaure on the back and must fit into a square opening on the inside of the oil tank, once the threaded portion of the stud is through to the outside of the crankcase make sure your top dead centre mark is upper most ( to align the square ), then use the nut and spacers to drag the stud fully home

SOURCE: Cant get clutch cover off new Husqvarna 235e chain saw

Mine did this when nearly brand new. You likely have a nasty jam of oil and sawdust stuck between the chain brake and the flywheel. It can be loosened by either careful prying of the case or precise shots of carb cleaner up in the housing. While you are in there look for a buildup of oil around the chain brake connection to the kickback paddle.

SOURCE: Ineed to remove flywheel from 365XP Husqvarna to split crank case

The thread is RH, loosen the nut un till its just flush with the top of the crank threads, use an soft metal drift, copper, allly, brass etc.
hold the fly wheel and strike the top of the nut with the drift it will pop the fly wheel off. you may need a hand. if it wont come off use a screw driver under the fly wheel and pry it up when you strike the nut..Dont hit the nut /shaft without the soft will destroy the shaft.

the clutch thread is LH..

SOURCE: Husqvarna 359 leaking chain oil

Remove the sprocket cover, bar, and chain. Find area where oil is discharged from case--is any part of the rubber seal damaged? Next, use compressed air to clean sawdust and dirt from oiler ports in rear of bar as well as the chain slot. Are you using motor oil instead of bar oil? Make sure there is nothing to prevent bar from making close contact with oiler port in case. Reassemble all parts and adjust chain tension.

Chain wont tighten


When you can't adjust the chain any more, the chain has stretched so far that you will need to remove the chain and replace it, or the tensioner pawl has slipped out of the bar and the chain tensioner will not work. Let's start with the easier solution. First lay the saw on it's left side so the bar is up and you can see two studs with nuts on them. These nuts hold the bar and side cover on. Remove the nuts (a 1/2 inch socket is what you need) and remove the side cover. The side cover holds the chain tensioner. Check to see that when you put the side cover on, the pawl on the chain tensioner fits into the small hole in the bar. If it does not, adjust the chain tensioner screw (below one of the chain retention stud holes in the side cover) until the pawl fits into the hole in the bar, and reinstall the side plate. You'll be able to adjust the chain tension now. If the chain tension is still too loose when the back of the pawl (visible through the slot in the side cover) is at the back of the slot, it is time to replace the chain as it has stretched beyond adjustment parameters.

Hope this helped.

Ive removed the cover on the crankcase side in order to change the chain itself. The cover is held in place by two studs. I cleaned the crankcase and then went to fit the chain assmebly and cover back on....

I really can't see the studs falling inside but it sure could drop out. But to make sure and satisfy your curiosity take your saw and shake it, or turn it upside down then right side up and listen for noise to see if it could be inside your saw. Sometimes when you remove the nuts the stud comes with it and you don't think too much of it. I have done that myself. I hope this helps, thanks.

No problem; using a borrowed Husqvarna 44-don't know fuel mixtures (if any). The chamber for "oil"-is that engine oil (if so, what do you recommend) or chain saw oil (if not, is there another...

The mix fuel mix is 40:1. Use Husqvarna 2 stroke oil not the cheap stuff on sale at car service stations. The chamber for oil is for chain oil which can be bought at most places that sell or hire machinery like chainsaws, lawnmowers etc.

The chain cover will not go back on because the break is engaged and I would like to know how to disengage the break band.

If the blade brake is engaged, it can be extremely hard to disengage when not mounted on the saw, as I'm sure you already know. One thing you can try is loosely mounting the cover on the bar studs with no sprocket installed so that you will have the leverage you need to disengage the brake band. Good luck.

I need to replace the chain and can not figure out how the cover/plate comes off

Depending on the model, you should just release the blade brake, if engaged, remove the bar stud nuts and remove the clutch cover. You should then have access to the bar, chain and sprocket.
