The sparkplug in my husqvarna 61 is always wet. Even after I dry it out it still gets wet,also my machine looses do I fix this

My guess is you may need a carb overhaul kit. It sounds like the carb is flooding all the time which may only require a strip and blow out. The air and fuel passages in these carbs are tiny and easily blocked so a blast with an airline can usually do the trick. While you are at it, clean the air filter. There are small parts inside so strip on a clean bench and lay parts out in sequence. There is a small diaphragm inside which can get pin holes in it which is why I said get a repair kit. You don't need a dealer kit as such, just get the carb details and go online ebay etc if you don't have somebody local. Don't use an airline on an assembled carb, you will damage the diaphragm. There are only 2 makes of carb generally so go online to the manf and down load matching info to give you a guide. There's a great guide at search husky 61

Chainsaw chain keeps running

This is a carb adjustment issue and needs to be rectified before using it again, the L jet on the carb is set too lean, if you cannot correct yourself i would suggest taking it to the local chainsaw shop.

Husky 61 lots of spark fuel is getting to carb cylinder is dry wont start would comprison be bad?

Two stroke engine have a reed valves, or something like it, that prevents exhaust pressure from causing the gas to back up.
Because of long idle times in the winter, if you don't use a fuel stabilizer, the gas dries up an leaves a sticky varnish residue.
This not only plugs up orifices, but glues the reed valve either shut or open. Either is bad. So you probably have to take the carb off and clean it to remove the varnish.

Carb assembling question

Thanks Jerry.
The only that came to my mind is to try here:
ArboristSite Chainsaw thread (free to join)
I did a quick search and saw nothing for a 61 carb but it does not mean it is not there. Someone at Arborists has rebuilt your carb. The hard part will be digging them out then dredging up the right memories. Good Luck. HTH Lou

I need to know the carb adjustments for a Husky 65. I need to know how far each screw should be turned out on the carb to get it to run so that I can fine tune the saw.

Start with 1.5 turns on the low speed screw and 1.5 turns on the high speed screw. You can fine tune from this setting.

Hi how to put front spring in to clutch brake

No model 61 listed @ Husqvarna.
How about a 261 here:
Enter 261 (no XPs, Es, just the numbers)
Serial number decode – for use with IPL
06 1500198
06 = year produced – 2006 (single digit before 2000)
15 = week produced - March
00198 = 198th unit Husky produced that week
See the Chain Brake Assembly detail. HTH
