Husky 359 clutch bearing lube tech

I am not sure as to the maintenance procedure for lubricating the clutch needle bearing on a Husky 359. The owners manual is useless in that regard.
Please advise.
Thanks much.

    I assumed as much and did so ( lubed the access hole with a small grease gun in the center of the clutch) But was not sure if that was actually reaching the bearing. I appreciate your prompt and very helpful response. Thank You.

Remove the chain brake cover and check the end of the crankshaft to see if there is a small hole for the roller nose lube gun that should have came with the saw. If so, inject a couple of pumps into this hole which will put grease into the bearing.

If no hole exists then you will have to remove the clutch housing from the saw which can only be done easily with an air or electric impact wrench. The nut comes of in the OPPOSITE direction (counterclockwise) that the nut rotates in when in operation - this should be very easy. Then remove the clutch housing which will expose the needle bearing and using your fingers smear the bearing with a small amount of light high pressure grease. Then replace the clutch housing and turn the nut in the opposite direction you used to take it off with your fingers until it is snug - then use the impact wrench in a very short burst to tighten the nut. Finally replace the clutch housing and/or bar and chain.

For a casual user this should only have to be done once a year as good quality chain oil can get into this area and provide some lubrication.

Ingerroll rand 2132g how do I oil my air impact wrench?


Most I.R. impacts require grease in the hammer mechanism (clutch) and oil in the air motor.
To lubricate the air motor simply add oil through the air inlet about 3 to 6 drops at every use.
To lubricate the hammer (clutch) mechanism you will need a grease gun with a needle, the grease fitting (item# 17) is located on the hammer case assembly (item# 15) 2 or 3 small squirts will sufficiently lube the hammer (clutch) mechanism.
With heavy use grease the tool once a month, with light use 2 to 3 times a year.
Follow this link for the parts list, also indicates the grease needed:

My Neptune Washer displays D-C when it is in the spin cycle


If your are failing in that part of the cycle with dc/UC errors and you have no grinding noise or belt screech (possible hard failure of the clutch) then the clutch may just need some maintenance clean up. If you are failing in spin cycle with dc or UC errors or both this is what I believe is happening. I feel the tumblers in your machine are trying to rotate in spin cycle because of a clutch malfunction. If you can do the maintenance I discuss below or have a friend that can help perform this maintenance it may just solve your issue. After I did thiis clutch maintenance I can wash a single pair of socks or a full load of bath towels and the machine works as designed. Prior to that maintenance fix I could only complete a wash cycle if there were no clothes in the wash basket. I will try to help you solve this and hopefully extend the service life of your machine. Look at the Service Manual page 47 and see what is involved in the clutch removal. It's not too bad just a tight work area. If you want to give it a try I can supplement the manual info. You can download the SM from this site. FAV6800A/9800A Service Manual
Good luck, Rich.

I have a maytag neptune fav6800aw tl washing machine that is out of balance I guess you could say. On spin cycle sounds like the washer is going to come apart?? just started and getting worse... Also can...


Tom,

Here is a link posted by another member of this site for the Svr Repair manual;

http://www.fixya.com/support/t495521-fav6800_manual  

This will help you trouble shoot issues with this machine.  I removed my clutch and lubed needle berings in the clutch pully and that took care of my issue of DC/UC errors in spin cycle.  Here is a quick note on my repair action.

I just did a repair on my FAV6800AAW by lubricating the needle bearings in the clutch pulley hub, the tub displacement sensor checked OK per the service manual check. I was getting dc/uc errors in the spin cycle, washer was purchased in 7/05. I have basic mechanical skills and used a socket wrench to remove clutch pulley, just follow the service manual removal steps to remove clutch pulley. Pull the plastic cover off the clutch pulley and inspect the spring, clean/lube needle bearings and the clutch hub coupler that drives spinner shaft. I used WD40 I may need to re-lube down the road with a good light grease. It took a few tries for me to get the clutch pulley to stay on after re-install and power up, getting the clutch pulley seated properly is the trick. I did not remove the washer tub for this fix, I believe I saw a posting where someone did. I just leaned the washer back to get a better reach angle, it is a tight work area. I did not want to junk 4 yr old $1k machine with out trying a fix. If you want to work on this model get the service manual, I found it online and I believe you can order it in PDF format from Maytag. Good luck!

I just went thru my 10th load of a mix of light, medium and heavy loads and all work fine no unbalance errors (DC/UC). Doesn’t fix the tangle problem :) Prior to this fix I could only run the washer with no clothes in it to complete a spin cycle with no dc/uc error codes.

Needle bearing maintenance


use a plastic piston stop and the proper clutch removal toop. Try Baileys on line or Madsens saw shop for the removal tool. Must order for the specific model, but they are rather cheap.
