Use a plastic piston stop and the proper clutch removal toop. Try Baileys on line or Madsens saw shop for the removal tool. Must order for the specific model, but they are rather cheap.

How do I oil the machine. I have looked in the manual and it doesn't show anything at all on this subject. unless I missed something.


There is little to no maintenance on this machine in general. The machine is fitted with oil impregnated sintered (powdered metal) bearings that are self lubricating. About 12 to 15% of the physical volume of such a porous bearing is oil. Adding additional oil will not absorb into the already oil saturated bearing, so adding oil will only create problems such as a messy oily machine and subsequent oil varnishing on parts.
However, the front cover on the needle bar end of the machine can be removed for lubricating the take-up lever and needle bar mechanisms. The balance of the machine should be left as is without oil. Periodic removal of lint with compressed air is advisable in the hook and bobbin case area.
Over the years, it has been found that over lubrication is more harmful than under lubricating Bernina machines.

How do you change the clutch?


Remove the side casing. (bar side)
Take off bar and chain.
Remove E-clip holding the clutch drum on.
Remove clutch drum and needle cage bearing.
This should expose the clutch.
Remove spark plug.
Use a piston stop to stop the piston rising, Sometimes a knotted piece of pull cord fed into the cylinder is just as good.
Turn the clutch clockwise with a socket to unscrew.

To put clutch back on turn anticlockwise till piston cycles back and hits the piston stop again and tighten. Replace spark plug and clutch drum, bearing, bar and chain and side casing.

Chain revolves when pulling starting cord. Difficult to start and when it goes the chain is permanently engaged. Cluch? What does a worn clutch look like and can I replace it myself?


Yes it could well be the clutch, if the springs are weak, or have broken, however it could also be the drum bearing, if this has not be lubricated it can seize on the crank and will turn the chain all the time, either way you need to remove the clutch and drum, if you can pull the clutch shoes out by hand the springs have gone weak, if the drum does not turn freely on the crank, it may be just a case of lubricating the bearing.

I have a 455 rancher.I take very good care of my equipment but. the manual states to lube the clutch bearing.How can I do this with out tearing the clutch apart.It may also need special tools?Any help...


The passage in the operatore manual is the same in all mauals, it is taken from the pro saw manual, here you can grease the bearing through the end of the crank, you cannot do this on the 455, you do need to remove the clutch and drum, the reality is that the drum bearing is only turning if the saw is idling without the chain rotating, the crank then turns in the drum, unless you leave the saw idling for long periods of time ( this is bad practice ) the bearing is doing very little, there is normally plenty of oil flying around to lubricate it, to remove the cluch there is two cut a ways in the clutch spider, these are designed to take the screw driver from the combi wrench, with a suitable hammer jarr the clutch against the compression of the saw until it un spins from the crank ( left hand thread )

If the saw was run with the brake on, or with the brake cover pushed on with the brake on, then there could be some damage to the drum, the clutch, or the pump drive gear that is normally driven by the drum, the lack of oil to the chain could be the same issue as the noise, remove the brake, clutch and drum, inspect all of these components for damage or blueing from heat, if you can pull the clutch shoes out with your hands then the spring requires replacement, check the needle bearing for the drum, if this is dry, then re grease it, check the oil pump drive gear for melting or damage.

How to lubricate needle bearing


Remove the clutch cover by loosening the 2 bar nuts. Lay the saw on it's side with the clutch drum facing upwards. Drip engine oil into the centre of the clutch drum while rotating it. That's all there's to it.

My Neptune Washer displays D-C when it is in the spin cycle


If your are failing in that part of the cycle with dc/UC errors and you have no grinding noise or belt screech (possible hard failure of the clutch) then the clutch may just need some maintenance clean up. If you are failing in spin cycle with dc or UC errors or both this is what I believe is happening. I feel the tumblers in your machine are trying to rotate in spin cycle because of a clutch malfunction. If you can do the maintenance I discuss below or have a friend that can help perform this maintenance it may just solve your issue. After I did thiis clutch maintenance I can wash a single pair of socks or a full load of bath towels and the machine works as designed. Prior to that maintenance fix I could only complete a wash cycle if there were no clothes in the wash basket. I will try to help you solve this and hopefully extend the service life of your machine. Look at the Service Manual page 47 and see what is involved in the clutch removal. It's not too bad just a tight work area. If you want to give it a try I can supplement the manual info. You can download the SM from this site. FAV6800A/9800A Service Manual
Good luck, Rich.

My Mainteb fix performed in mid Dec. 08

""I just did a repair on my FAV6800AAW by lubricating the needle bearings in the clutch pulley hub, the tub displacement sensor checked OK per the service manual check. I was getting dc/uc errors in the spin cycle, washer was purchased in 7/05. I have basic mechanical skills and used a socket wrench to remove clutch pulley hub, just follow the service manual removal steps to remove clutch pulley hub. Pull the plastic cover off the clutch pulley hub and inspect the spring, clean/lube needle bearings and the clutch hub coupler that drives spinner shaft. I used WD40 I may need to re-lube down the road with a good light grease. It took a few tries for me to get the clutch pulley hub to stay on after re-install and power up, getting the clutch pulley seated properly is the trick. I did not remove the washer tub for this fix, I believe I saw a posting where someone did. I just leaned the washer back to get a better reach angle, it is a tight work area. I did not want to junk 3.5 yr old $1k machine without trying a fix. ""

Husky 359 clutch bearing lube tech


Remove the chain brake cover and check the end of the crankshaft to see if there is a small hole for the roller nose lube gun that should have came with the saw. If so, inject a couple of pumps into this hole which will put grease into the bearing.

If no hole exists then you will have to remove the clutch housing from the saw which can only be done easily with an air or electric impact wrench. The nut comes of in the OPPOSITE direction (counterclockwise) that the nut rotates in when in operation - this should be very easy. Then remove the clutch housing which will expose the needle bearing and using your fingers smear the bearing with a small amount of light high pressure grease. Then replace the clutch housing and turn the nut in the opposite direction you used to take it off with your fingers until it is snug - then use the impact wrench in a very short burst to tighten the nut. Finally replace the clutch housing and/or bar and chain.

For a casual user this should only have to be done once a year as good quality chain oil can get into this area and provide some lubrication.
