Question about Husqvarna , No.455 Rancher, 20" Gas - Powered Chainsaw
Put new fuel in,new plug, good spark, new air filter, compression 95, took spark plug out put fuel in hile put plug back in nothing, checked fly wheel key good wont start what else is there?
Sure sounds like you did it all.
Was the Plug wet with gas when you took it out to fuel it directly? I would take the plug back out, blow out or let the Cylinder totally dry. Then spray a bit of Starter fluid in the carb and see if you get life.
Old gas left in a saw is a Carburetor killer. The paper components in these carbs can not stand the new 10% ethanol gas.

Try this get back to us with the results.
Ignition Coil Test
You may need to use a jumper wire between the threaded part of the plug and the cooling fins. You don’t have to bend up the electrode. HTH

If checking spark make shore the out side if plug is earthed to chain saw.
Fresh clean fuel, clean fuel filter filter pull exhaust off and check piston is ok. Than check for flooding. start there.

It needs spark, fuel and compression to run, which is missing?
Lets start with spark. Replace the plug (very inexpensive and great insurance), then do this:

Before we get to fuel please download and follow the start procedure in your Operator's Manual here:
Enter the 3 digit model number (no XPs, Es, just the numbers)
Serial number decode – useful when downloading IPLs and Manuals
06 = year produced – 2006 (single digit before 2000)
15 = week produced - March
00198 = 198th unit Husky produced that week
I own a Husky 359 that 1 time I forgot to set the fast idle (close then open choke). It was near impossible to start. I have missed the initial attempt to fire and flooded it too, again almost impossible to start.
If it has spark and the start procedure fails, put a teaspoon of fuel mix in the carburetor throat, open the choke, and pull. Does it fire and attempt to start? Yes it probably has a fuel delivery problem. Please repost with what you did and we will continue. HTH
IMO regardless of what your manual says ( yours probably 50:1) all 2-cycle engines should be operated on 50:1 (1 gallon of premium fuel to 2.6 ounces of quality 2-cycle engine oil). Once adjusted for this mix they start easier, pollute a bunch less, and do not foul out plugs, cylinders, or mufflers. Run lean conditions are most often caused by dirty air filters, air leaks not detected by the operator, or failing to add any oil to the fuel in the tank. Using a 32:1 mix prevents none of these occurring! I use a Pioneer chainsaw I purchased new early 1980 with a 50:1 mix.

if you have a good compression,a strong enough blue spark and carburetion for the fuel air mixture try priming the engine(put small amount of gas in the spark plug hole)then start the engine.If the engine runs only the gas you put inside the cilinder there is a carburetion problem to find and fix.
let me know regards savumihai71
