Check your fuel make sure it is new fuel. Check to make sure that you have spark. Even replace the plug, for the price of 3dollars it is not a bad deal. If those do not work then you are going to have to check your flywheel and your armatur those are the items that would prevent you from firing since Huska makes a excellent carb you do not need to mess with it at all.

SOURCE: i have a husqvarna 350 chainsaw, it wont cut straight.

THE ONLY THING THAT CAUSES A SAW TO CUT ON A CURVE IS THE CHAIN IS SHARPER ON ONE SIDE THEN THE OTHER AND IT PULLS THE SAW CHAIN TO ONE SIDE CAUSING THIS PROBLEM.
THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH THE SAW, IF YOU USE A FILE TRY A FILE GUIDE THEY WORK GREAT

I hope 2 different problems Marvin. I think the starter is most important, after you reply with findings we will take on the likely fuel delivery problem. Please do this and post back (below) with what you find.

Starter Handle difficult to pull:
1. Remove the starter cover. Does the starter operate smoothly? If yes, reinstall the cover and continue with 2, if not repair the starter.
2. Is the saw equipped with a decompression valve? Yes continue, no proceed with 3.
· Leave the ignition off, set the valve and pull the starter.
· Pull gently to release the valve. Is there a difference in the effort required?
· If yes continue with 3, if no repair or replace the decompression valve.
3. Was this saw perhaps operated in a lean condition (metal transfer from the piston to cylinder wall)? This may be caused by many things including but not limited to; leaky intake connections at the engine or carburetor; leaky crankcase seals; cracked fuel delivery lines; running on gasoline containing no 2-cycle oil.
· Disconnect the spark plug wire and remove the plug. Remove the muffler (clean it and the spark arrestor before reinstalling), hold a light at the plug hole and inspect the cylinder through the exhaust port. Is it smooth and shiny or does it appear speckled with dull gray spots or smears?
· Pull the starter slowly, inspect the piston as it rises and falls. Is it a dull gray without scratches and gouges?
· Hold the light at the exhaust port and look through the spark plug hole, inspect the cylinder above the exhaust port. Is it shiny and smooth or speckled with gray spots or smears?
Please Note: Any spots or smears on the cylinder or deep scratches and gouges in the piston indicate the saw was operated in a lean condition. Repair of this on a home owner quality saw often exceeds replacement cost. A repair estimate by an independent saw shop should be considered.
4. The last likely possibility is the saw has jumped timing. Inspect the flywheel and crankshaft under the starter cover. Are the woodruff key slots aligned and the key intact? Please take it to a good local saw seller/mechanic for a written diagnosis before authorizing any repair.


If you have more questions or need additional help please reply below and I will get back to you. Thank you for using FixYa and Good Luck. HTH

Starter fluid removes what little lubrication is provided by the fuel mix. I suggest a teaspoon of mix into open carburetor throat or the plug hole. Do not go to speed with the air filter removed.

Back to basics, drain the fuel in the tank and refill with fresh, make sure the ignition switch is on, check for a spark at the plug, does the plug get wet after cranking engine, remove the muffler and check for any piston damage through the exhaust port, let us know your findings.

Check to see if it is getting fuel into the cylinder. Does the sparkplug get wet when trying to start?

Try bypassing the switch by connecting the two wires together. If it starts then you know what the problem is.

Hi, from what you have written I believe you have a faulty cdi unit. Carbys don't generally run perfectly intermittently. To test the cdi theory, close the sparkplug gap to approximately half normal gap. If the saw runs fine you have a faulty cdi, shorting ht lead or stop wire. Regards Phil.

Push it toward the nose of the bar, did it click? I think not. Pull it aft slowly (may require some force at the rear extreme) until it clicks. Move it fore and aft a few times, make it click in each position just for familiarity. After hearing an aft click, while wearing gloves and attempt to rotate the chain, If you cannot rotate it post back below and we will look deeper. Provide the model number pr verify it is a 455 please if you reply.

If you have more questions or need additional help please reply below and I will get back to you. Good Luck. HTH
