You can get an IPL here:

I don't think this has the detail you need.
If it were me I'd visit my friendly neighborhood Husky chainsaw seller (not Big Box Store) and ask to look at the clutch cover with the brake installed (take a camera). I'd probably ask for a quote for their repair too. HTH

Your model is no longer sold. The seller will know what model replaced it and may be willing to explain the repair procedure for your saw you. Take the cover and loose parts with you.

SOURCE: cannot reassemble brake band assembly to clutch drum

The brake was engaged when removed. The Illustrated Parts List (IPL) here shows how the majority of components fit together. The brake needs to be released to clear the clutch drum.
Secure the clutch cover (it requires quite a bit of force), with a couple of blocks of wood, in a large vise or a C-clamp on a work surface.

Use a pair of pliers or a crescent and rotate the spoked part CW until it latches. This one is latched.

SOURCE: chain oiler quit working

Your oiler is under the clutch, The IPL (exploded parts list) for your saw is the only detail for the oil system and is sketchy at best. Oiler components and part numbers are listed but may be on different illustrations. They are also beneficial with disassembly/reassembly (You require a special tool for clutch removal. Please ensure the one I list is a suitable substitute):

Enter the 3 digit model number (no XPs, Es, just the numbers)
Serial number decode – useful when downloading IPLs and Manuals
06 1500198
06 = year produced – 2006 (single digit before 2000; please contact Husqvarna for single digit clarification http://www.husqvarna.com/us/homeowner/support/customer-support/)
15 = week produced – March
00198 = 198th unit Husky produced that week

  1. Check the IPL for your saw to see if any special tools are needed. Poulan (Craftsman, Jonsered, Husky) clutch removal tool part number 530031112 if needed, is under $5 from many sources (look at the visible area between the weights if 2 small round sockets are visible you need the tool).
  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 nylon rope (nothing left behind) 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).
If you have more questions or need additional help please reply below and I will get back to you. HTH & Good Luck.

Problem chain / break cover chainsaw


Hi, hold the cover in a vice where the bar nuts normally tighten up to, then pull the chainbrake lever back in the direction the handle bar would be. You will feel a click and the lever will stay back and the brake band will be released. Then refitted cover to the saw. Regards Phil.

Replacing brake band on Husqvarna 357/359/340/345/350/346/445 and many others


Before attempting to repair any chain brake, eye protection should always be worn, these machines all have an out board chain brake, known as a knee link brake due to its actuating mechanism, start by makeing sure the brake is off, by pulling the brake handle fully back to the top handle, now remove the bar securing nuts, remove the brake/side cover, the hand guard stays with the saw, so the cover is quite difficult to hold when removing the spring, so take two 8 mm bolts, clamp the hex heads in a vice, spacing them out the same as the fixing holes in the brake, now fit the brake /cover band up onto the up standing bolts, use the two bar nuts to secure the brake to the bolts, now insert special tool part no. 502522202 into the actuating quadrant and turn to activate the brake ( this will remove much of the spring tention ) if you do not have the tool you can remove the hand guard from the saw and use that, or a sturdy pair of long nose pliers, now remove the cross head screws from the spring cover, edge the back of the spring up enough to insert a suitable screw driver into the end, lever the spring up and onto the screw driver shaft ( this will stop it flying out ) remove the c clip securing the actuating quadrant to the brake cover, gently lever out the roll pin in the anchor end of the band, the band will now lift out of the cover, remove the single cross head screw securing the knee link mechanism to the band. Refit the new band into the knee link and re fit the screw, re fit the quadrant onto the post in the cover and re fit the e clip, press the anchor end of the band back into the cover, insert the spring back onto the knee link spigot, compress the spring and push it back into the cover, the best way to compress the spring is to use a good pair of long nose pliers, push the closed jaws into the end of the spring ( this will stop the spring flying out ) now push the pliers in to compress the spring against the knee link, and back into the cover, refit the spring cover screws, you now need to load the brake before it can be put back onto the saw, use the special tool, or the removed hand guard to do this, it will take a fair amount of force to re load the brake, once loaded re fit to the saw.

How do I get the brake band ,located inside the chain cover, assembled back onto the chain saw. clutch assembly. The band brake diameter seems too small to fit around the clutch housing.


You need to load the brake, clamp it in a vice, be carefull not to damage the cover, if the hand gaurd is connected to the brake pull it fully back until the locks off, this may take a fair amount of force as it is compressing a large spring, if the hand guard is on the machine, remove it and use this as a tool to load the brake, the only other way is to remoce the clutch and sprocket, now refit the brake onto the saw, now pull the hand guard fully back to load the brake.

How do you pull the chain break apart on a poulan chainsaw 2150 and repair it.


The brake is a saftey item on the saw and should only be repaired by a quailified fitter, however if you should decide to do it yourslf that is down to you, the brake is a so called knee link brake, start by removing the brake from the saw, once removed activate the brake by pushing the hand guard forward untill you hear the brake come on, now remove the allen screw in the hand guard pivot ( do not remove the c clip in the side of the hand guard ), tap the pivot collers out from either side and remove the hand guard, remove the cross head screws securing the spring cover, BE AWARE THERE IS A COMPRESSION SPRING UNDER HERE, eye protection should be worn, with the cover off, pry out the spring, remover the small pin securing the knee link mechanism, using a small punch tap out the roll pin from the other side of the cover that secures the anchor end of the band, it should now come away, remove the cross head screw holding the band to the knee link mechanism. You can now replace the band, refit the the knee link to the new band, re fit to the machine, tap the roll pin back into the cover to secure the anchor end of the band, re fit the knee link pin, re fit the spring ( be carefull ) re fit the spring cover, place the hand guard back on the cover, use a suitable tapperd punch to insert through the hand guard and cover to hold it in place, now pull the hand guard fully back to load the brake, remove the punch and re fit the pivot collers and allen screw. Make sure the brake now functions properley.

The chain brake on my UT10942D keeps shutting my saw down and will not disengage. The brake is constantly on. I have lubricated it with WD-40 and it didn't help.


Likely, the brake 'toggle' mechanism that keeps the handle in one of two positions is packed with sawdust/dirt that prevents full travel in the release position. Make notes of how the parts are fitted together, then dig out the spring and other components, clean everything, and reassemble. You may need to compress the coil spring with 'Channel Lock' pliers, and tap it into the recess. WD-40 is great lube, but not particularly effective on chain saws. Make sure the brake band is not deformed in any way. Hope this helps!

How do I reinstall the chain brake on my Poulan Wild Thing??


Find your model number add a LE suffix (i.e. if 2375 make it 2375LE) the "Handle, Chassis, and Bar Assembly" shows what detail is available. If not enough detail tell Poulan! Maybe it will improve for the next guy. If not happy with Poulan answer tell Husqvarna (parent company).
An entire new clutch cover (2375LE Type 2) item 36 pn545139903 is $19.43.

I have a poulan 18" chain saw. The safety band that goes around the clutch came off. Need info on how to put it back on


You don't list your model; There are probably over 100 to choose from. Find your model here:
Poulan.com
http://www.ordertree.com/modelinfo/POULAN-WEED-EATER/75.59.html
Open the IPL. find the "Handle,Chasis and Bar Assembly" or similar page. That is the only drawing showing the chain brake parts. If you aren't able to repair it using that your options are to find your friendly neighborhood chainsaw shop or a new saw. HTH

Buy and replace new watch band ?


I just replaced the band on a women's ironman watch, so I know it is tricky, but can be done. First remove the old band using a small flat blade screwdriver and determine that the spring bars that came with the new band are the right size by comparing with the old ones. My new ones were too large. Then, use a pen to make marks on the back of the watch case in alignment with the spring pin holes . Put a spring pin into the band and position the band on the watch the way it will be attached, with the pin just above the marks. Use the small flat blade screwdriver to insert one of the spring bars into its hole and align the other side of the spring bar with its mark on the case. Compress the spring bar and slide it down until it roughly aligns with its hole, then, push the band sideways toward the hole and wiggle the band until the pin seats. Apparently the hole alignment is very tight and, without that last step, the pin simply will not seat. After spending a lot of time with the first strap, locating the spring pin hole by trial and error, I used a magnifying light for the second strap to allow me to see the spring bar hole, making the process a lot faster.

The lock on the brakes of my bugaboo cameleon doesn't work.


I just repaired my Bugaboo Chameleon brake. If the white brake lever doesn't "lock" i.e stays in its forward position, locking the brake you need to disassemble the brake handle housing. Open the black plastic cover by unscrewing the two screws. The handle should come off with a little tweaking. Remove the brake wire. The "button" where you are supposed to release the brake is actually a sort of cogwheel that stops the lever from springing back. Sometimes the cogwheel gets too pushed in the handle. You can tell if it has done so by observing the 8 small grooves that are out of place. Simply take a small flat object like a flat screwdriver and pry the button out. It should pop out as it is spring loaded. Now put it back in its position but TURN IT so it fit in the grooves. Put it back in the black handle, by reversing the disassembly process. Easy!

Best Regards,Fred, Stockholm, Sweden(Sorry about the English, hope you understand)
