Question about Husqvarna Garden
Removed chain cover to clean and will not fit back
Make sure chainbrake is OFF. The brake band needs to be in the opened position to fit back over the clutch drum.

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.

It must be reset before you can reinstall it.
This answer stolen from Dolfoff;
Clamp the cover in a vise being careful to stay on flat surfaces of the cover (use wooden blocks if needed) and pull the brake lever back to the "OFF" position. It's a strong spring so pull hard in the direction that would be towards the rear of the saw if the cover were installed.
Hope this helps.

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!

Your chain brake mechanism is in the "locked" position...you will need to release it. Some husky's have the handle on the cover. If this is the case simply pull the handle towards what would be the rear of the saw and install the cover.
Other saws have the handle on the saw and some little cogs mesh with cogs in the side cover. In order to unlock this one I use two 1/4" x 2 1/2 inch or so bolts in a vise. They get clamped with the bolts protruding vertically above the vise jaws and are spaced so the the tips of the bolt will fit in between the cogs. Study the assembly and determine the direction of rotation required to release the brake. Place the side cover face down over the bolts with the bolt tips in between the cogs and rotate until the brake cams over and releases. be sure you know which direction to rotate the cover as a bit of force is required to get things moving.
Once the brake is released you should be good to go.

The chain brake is activated, if the hand guard is connected to the brake cover, carefully clamp the brake in a vice ( be careful not to damage the cover ) now pull the hand guard fully back until the brake clicks off, if the hand guard is on the saw itself, remove the two screws and remove the hand guard, use this as a tool to fit into the brake and load it.
