What will cause the chain to stop turning when clutch(brake)cover gets final tightening?

If this is a Husqvarna, then it is crucial to make sure your brake is not set, when removing the cover. Rotate the blade to make sure it is moving freely, then remove the cover without setting the brake. However, as time went on, it still happened occasionally and seemed to be a defect in the saw. I had a Husqvarna Rancher, which drove me berserk, until I removed it, entirely. Not recommending that last course of action, but it is something that is common to this saw.

How to lubricate needle bearing

Remove the clutch cover by loosening the 2 bar nuts. Lay the saw on it's side with the clutch drum facing upwards. Drip engine oil into the centre of the clutch drum while rotating it. That's all there's to it.

Take the chain off a 450 husqvarna

Pages 17 & 18 should help answer your question. (This may not be your saw)
Loosen the tension adjuster, remove the clutch cover, (engine to left) pull the bar off the adjustment pin then push it left against the clutch cover bolt. Remove the chain from the chain groove, remove the bar, the chain can now be removed.

Husqvarna 345 chainsaw chain doesn't move freely and heats up

has the chain ever came off the saw?and i'm going to assume that it is the correct chain for the saw...reason i ask about the chain comming off the saw is that when it does the driver have a tendency to become nicked and will heat up the clutch because the saw is trying to drive the chain links through the chain slot.also you need to look at the drive sprocket to see if there is any wear on the teeth....also over tighting the chain will cause the clutch to heat up.

Husky 359 clutch bearing lube tech

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.

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.
