SOURCE: husqvarna chain saw oiler

My Husky 36 did this. The oil pump drive gear was stripped and had to be replace. It's located under the flywheel/sprocket so you have to pull that. I couldn't find info on how to do that so had a local shop repair it for $70! Parts are cheap, labor is not.

SOURCE: saw will not cut , chain stops turning when chain touches wood

If your saw has a removable sprocket, Check the drive sprocket on the clutch drum. Either the the spline is worn or the drive link on the chain is not properly seated in the sprocket well.

How do you seperate pole from engine on husqvarna 327pt5s chainsaw?

The end going into the clutch is splined. It is held in place by a spring clip. Carefully pull the shaft from the clutch, do not force it. If it does not snap out, you may have something stuck on the clutch side.

What causes a cylinder on husqvarna 50 chainsaw heat up quickly

There are several factors at play here. 1. The saw needs to be disassembled and blown out with compressed air.(no air flow over cylinder) 2. Air filter is plugged and needs to be blown out also with compressed air. 3. Fuel mixture is incorrect. (too lean) 4. ambient air temperature is too high for prolonged use. use intermittently when outside air temp is high. 5. Chain needs sharpening. (a dull chain causes you to "work:" the saw harder causing an "overheat". Hope this helps.

What would cause 4.6 engine just stopped firing while driving

Items to cause this include immobiliser, heavy objects swinging on the ignition key, cam/crank position sensor, broken timing belt/chain. Check that the cam shaft is turning. Check for loose / dirty battery terminals that allow the circuit from the battery to be broken intermittently.

Husqvarna Chainsaw Chain stopped turning

Have you take the chain brake off..? This is a band which grips the clutch drum and must be disengaged before use.

Check chain tension, this shouldn't be too tight.

Did you also put chain oil in the oil tank.?

My Husqvarna 350 bogs down and is not turning the chain.

something is pinching the chain when you have the side cover on. either the bar isn't sitting flush to the saw or you don't have the chain in the sprocket correctly and that is causing it to bind

Husqvarna Rider 155 No steering Rear end of cable looks okay

The steering is fairly basic, a steering wheel that turns a steering shaft, on the end of the shaft is a sprocket, around the sprocket runs a short chain, on either end of the chain is a steel cable, both cables run to a quadrate at the underside of the engine, the r/h cable then goes the the l/h fixing and the l/h to the right, so either the locking screw on the steering wheel shaft has come loose and not turning the lower shaft, or the sprocket has sheered from the lower shaft, or the cables are not adjusted correctly, remove the cover on top of the chassis between you feet, you will then see the lower shaft, sprocket and chain, you should see the problem when the steering is turned.

The saw is a 385xp. We have changed bars and chains numerous times. When sawing the bar gets hot enough to fry an egg and the chain stretches out. Onlynable to saw a minute or teo at the time. bar gets...

Overheating the chain/bar is usually caused by insufficient oil getting to the chain, but can be caused by the chain being too tight to begin with (you should be able to turn the chain by hand), grit in the chain groove, or a poorly sharpened chain. The saw has an oil volume adjustment screw on the lower part of the case near the chain return area. Turning it CCW should increase oil flow. Oil volume can be judged by running the saw tip at speed near some cardboard for a moment--it should throw off a thin line of oil. Chain sharpening condition can be judged by the sawdust residue coming from the cut--if a powder-like material, the teeth are not sharp or are improperly filed. You should not have to bear down excessively on the saw to make it cut quickly. Hope some of this helps!

Reference the Husqvarna 350 chainsaw. Why does the chain continue to turn at idle? I just installed a new clutch. Adjusting the idle down causes the saw to shut off upon trying to accelerate.

Sounds like the clutch is still grabing. Easy solution is to apply the chain brake at idle to stop the chain turning. Try adjusting the L screw for a smoother idle.

When beginning to cut, the chain will operate and then stop while I am cutting a log. Would this be a clutch problem?

Does the chain continue spinning? If no (and gasoline) bad clutch. If yes I suspect the bar and chain are binding (cutting in an arch). That is often caused by a worn bar or improperly sharpened chain. Post back (below) if the latter and I will help with that too. Post back with the model number (358.#####) and I will help with clutch replacement.

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
