Question about Husqvarna Model 460 Rancher Chainsaw 60cc with 24 Bar and Chain
I took my cover and bar off of my saw while the chainbrake was engaged, i think. Now its nearly impossible for me to get my brake band to slide over my clutch drum. How do I get my brake to be able and slide over my drum ?
If you pulled the brake toward you to engage it, simply push it back out to disengage it. (might take more pressure to release it than to engage it)

Sometimes that's not an easy job . I work for a Husqvarna dealer and I have that problem frequently . First try to get the clutch cover on place (do not use the bolts) and push in @ the top part of the clutch cover , then try to move the clutch lever backwards to release the band (better if done with two people) . If that does not work the only way is remove the clutch lever with the 2 bolts on each side and put the lever on the clutch cover (top metal piece that looks like a clover)to release the band (again with 2 people one holds the clutch cover and the other one the lever pulling the lever backwards) .
Hope this help

SOURCE: clutch cover wont go back on
Your cover probably won't go back on because the kickback/chain brake is on. Pull the handle on the cover back until you hear a click, the it will go on. As for removing the clutch, you need Poulan tool # 530031112 and an impact witha 3/4 socket. If you're just trying to reset chain break, removing clutch is not necessary, just pull back on handle as I said before.

A link to an IPL a 2008 Husqvarna 235E follows (may not be your saw):
It includes a good illustration of the brake and its' components. It is likely the chain brake is released and will need to be engaged to enlarge the brake band.
Reset Chain Brake
Immobilize the clutch cover (blocks of wood on a flat surface to protect the finish) in a vise or with a large C-clamp to a work surface.
Use pliers or a crescent wrench and rotate it clockwise until it latches open. This will require some force. A slight modification reported in a testimonial to the above method follows;
" Thanks for the help. I took your answer and modified the fix a little. I placed the cover on loosely and then moved the bar handle into the right position in order to engage the spoked wheel, then rotated the handle back until the cover fit right. Thanks, SG "–NameRemoved

The problem you are experiencing is very common. Many people remove the side cover with the chain brake applied or either the brake becomes engaged after the cover has been removed. You will need to reset the brake before you can install it. This is a little tricky but can be accomplished. I find that it is done fairly easy by carefully clamping the side cover in a vise, and using a good strong pair of needle nose, span the "rotator" (star shaped wheel) on the brake and with another pair of pliers, grab the needle nose pliers and "twist" the brake into the disengaged position. Hope this is explained well enough to get the job done.
