SOURCE: husqvarna chain saw oiler

My Husky 36 did this. The oil pump drive gear was stripped and had to be replace. It's located under the flywheel/sprocket so you have to pull that. I couldn't find info on how to do that so had a local shop repair it for $70! Parts are cheap, labor is not.

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.

Place a business or index card between the fly wheel and coil, rotate until the magnetic attraction pulls everything tight together. Tighten the coil screws, rotate the flywheel until the attraction eases and remove the card. Ensure nothing contacts when flywheel is rotated.

SOURCE: I have a Husqvarna 345e chainsaw. Can't get the cover back on.

That metal band you see which is preventing you from putting on the cover is part of the chain break mechanism. You were suppose to disengage the break before taking off the cover (I did the same thing). To get it back together you need to disengage the break by a tricky procedure and that will make the band diameter larger so it fits over the clutch. To force the band open, you need to first place the cover over the two bolts that hold the bar. As you already know, the back of the cover will not be able to fit over the clutch. Now in this angled position, bend (force) the break lever down (gray thing on top) until you can force together the sproket in the cover onto the mating pastic fitting built into the break lever. Now you can use the break lever to force down the internal spring and open the metal band. That will expand the stainless steel band and it will fit around the clutch. If you now push down on the back of the cover it will snap in over the clutch. Once you see how it is done, it is not so hard, but it is tricky because you are forcing some of the parts slightly out of position to get it back together. .

What will cause the chain to stop turning when clutch(brake)cover gets final tightening?


If this is a Husqvarna, then it is crucial to make sure your brake is not set, when removing the cover. Rotate the blade to make sure it is moving freely, then remove the cover without setting the brake. However, as time went on, it still happened occasionally and seemed to be a defect in the saw. I had a Husqvarna Rancher, which drove me berserk, until I removed it, entirely. Not recommending that last course of action, but it is something that is common to this saw.

Electrical wire?


Because of the simplicity of the ignition system, there really is no diagram necessary. Husqvarna uses a simple two-wire harness in that unit (e.g., p/n 544 08 28-01) that has two female quick-connects at one end and one female quick-connect and a ring terminal at the other end.

The end with the ring connector is the magneto end. The female quick-connect there attaches to the magneto primary circuit control terminal, and the ring terminal there is secured under the head of one of the two magneto armature mounting screws.

The opposite end of the harness goes to the ON/OFF switch on the case side near the handle. This switch is a simple single-pole/single-throw switch that allows the engine to run when in its open position, and kills the engine when in its closed position. The engine shut-down occurs through the effective action of grounding the magneto control terminal to the magneto armature frame, as accomplished through the circuit through the ON/OFF switch when that switch is closed.

To identify the armature, harness and switch for your saw, go to the Husqvarna Manuals Download Page for your saw, identify the list by the build date of your saw, and download the desired list. (I like the 2009-02 version as it has the sections identified and bookmarked, but be sure you ID the correct parts for your saw. It might help to DL your manual as well as the 2009-02 version for reference purposes.)

The armature and harness will be found on the Ignition / Flywheel page (items 7 & 8, respectively), and the switch will be found on the Air Filter / Intake / Carb and Air Purge / On-Off Switch pages, as item 9 (e.g., p/n 504 00 34-01, includes retainer bail).

If you are getting no spark from the plug wire when cranking the engine with the ON/OFF switch in its ON position, the problem must be in one of three places -- the magneto or its mounting, the harness, or the switch. A short between the magneto control terminal and the magneto armature will kill the spark, as will any short between the two wires in the harness. Similarly, an ON/OFF switch that fails to open (internally) will have the same effect as leaving the switch set to its OFF position.

If the engine will not stop when the ON/OFF switch is moved to its OFF position, an open magneto circuit is indicated. This can be due to a broken wire in the harness, a loose or corroded connection of the grounding (control) wire to the armature frame, a break in the magneto primary circuit to the control terminal, a loose or disconnected wire at the ON/OFF switch, or an ON/OFF switch that fails to close (internally).

While broken or shorted harness wires are easily repaired without replacement, any magneto or switch failures will usually require replacement of the failed component.

Cover won't go on.round metal strip won't fit on round spindle that turns chain.E-235.Do I need the break bar?It doesn't line up either. DB


Sounds like the chain brake was set when you took the cover off. You need to disengage the chain brake (release it) so the round spindle will fit inside. Look for the two parts (one on cover, one on saw) that match up at the base of the chain brake. You won't be able to fit the whole cover on, but if you can line up where the metal triangular gear engages the chain brake, you can give it a snap to disengage it. What I have done in the past is to line up the two parts and push down on the top of the cover where they meet so as much of the gear is in the chain brake release as possible ( I put a knee on it ) and then give a snap to release it. Be careful though, because the cover part is plastic and you don't want to strip that part of the chain brake assembly. Good luck.

How do you set the chain tension on a 345e?


The E version is tooless, so flip out the wing in the centre of the big cover fixing nut,slacken the nut off half a turn, now turn the knurled adjuster in the side cover, down to tighten, up to slacken, there are many schools of thought about the correct tention of the chain, but basically the chain should sit snuggly all round the guide bar, and with a gloved hand pull manually around the bar with out too much force, it should never sag on the bottom of the guide bar.

Husqvarna 345e


I have a model 435 Husky that had the same hard-to-start problem--warranty service replaced the carburetor and it seems to work ok now. The chain that continues to turn can be fixed by turning the idle-speed screw (not the H or L jet screws) CCW a small amount until it can be accelerated then dropped back to idle to quit driving the chain. Hope this helps!

I need to replace the chain sproket on my Hsuqvarna 345e chain sa

  1. Check the IPL for your saw to see if any special tools are needed.
  2. There are metal piston stops available, when square (almost never) with the piston top these work well, if not square they have been known to punch through the piston. I suggest a length of starter cord or nylon rope be used instead of the piston stop (retain 6" ± so you can remove it). Make sure the piston is near the top of the cylinder before feeding the cord or it can fall through the exhaust port and damage the piston as it rises.
  3. Everyone I have ever removed had a left handed thread (tighten it to loosen it).
    Let us know how it worked for you.

Take the chain off a 450 husqvarna

http://weborder.husqvarna.com/order_static/doc/HOUS/HOUS2008/HOUS2008_1151081-96.pdf (This may not be your saw)
Loosen the tension adjuster, remove the clutch cover, (engine to left) pull the bar off the adjustment pin then push it left against the clutch cover bolt. Remove the chain from the chain groove, remove the bar, the chain can now be removed.
