SOURCE: Piston ring compressing

Don't use a rubber mallet! It shouldn't take that much force! Make sure the piston ring is compressed enough so it will fit inside the cylinder as you slide it down over the piston. Be very delicate! It doesn't take much effort to break a piston ring or screw up the crank bearings. Just take your time and make sure everything is lined up and extremely clean.a thin coat of 2-stroke oil on the piston, rings, and inseide the cylinder will help protect everything - just make sure you're working in a clean environment where there's no dirt and grime for the thin coat of oil to attract.

SOURCE: need diagram of husqvarna 141

Not sure why you would need these! This is a really simple process. Remove bar and chain brake cover. Disconnect choke and throttle lever, muffler, and 4 screws with your allen wrench, i've never even attempted it before and just took my about an hour to complete the entire process. Just make sure to note how carb goes together, you can mix a few parts up if your not careful.

You can find aftermarket kits to with cylinder, pistion, rings and all for around $60-100.

Saw starts, but why does it run few seconds then quit?

Has it enough compression ? because i have the experience it have a questionable closing system for carburetor air filter it is not always fully locked take care to close it replace parts if its not as soon as this problem is there or its to late , on the way it should but when it is not good closed it leaks in much cases and the piston had often grooves by polution from graveldust it can have lost compression by it first to do is control the piston.
In the event that all of this is not the subject the tank airiation and fuelhoses to control.

Hello, i have an old L65 Husqvarna chain saw, i have been lookin for a piston kit, but with no luck, i was told that old style 48mm piston out of Husqvarna model 61 will work in a l65 . Can any one co

I have a homelite piston running in my Husqvarna edger . Most pistons for engines are all the same if the cc's are the same . they only vary in the gudgeon pin size and the location of the pin in the piston. So take your piston to a small engine wreckers and any piston that measurers the same ,looks the same will do the job. then get a new piston for the make that it came out off and it will fit.

Husqvarna 250 Brush Cutter Piston and Head Scratched

the cylinder if it has small scuff marks can be honed out using a large brake cylinder honer in an electric drill
scratches on the piston can be removed using emery paper
the ring/ s need to be replaced
remember that the rings are pinned in position when being assembled to keep the eng gap away from the port holes
your statement indicates that it was run with out the correct oil ratio so check for big end and little end bearing coloring ( blue or tan color) before assembly

I have a husqvarna 61 it wound pull over with the plug in but with it out it pulls over just fine

Assuming you have fitted the correct spark plug ( BPMR6A ) then it has to be an issue with the piston, if this is a after market piston it could have poor tolerences, the piston crown should be completly flat, not domed, if the piston is slightly too tall it will increse the compression to the point where you can not crank the engine, take the piston out and carfully compare it with the old piston.

My husqvarna 61 starts fine and runs great for about 15 seconds and the it flat out stalls. Over and over this happens. what can i do?

Make sure the chain can be turned by hand and is well oiled. Check the muffler, fuel filter, and air cleaner for plugging. Check the condition of the fuel lines and primer button--does the primer pull fresh fuel into it when pumped? Check the carburetor fasteners for tightness including the mounting to the cylinder. If there is a rubber isolator between the carburetor and cylinder, check it for cracking or any holes. Make sure you are using modern synthetic saw oil in the fuel, not boat motor petroleum based oil. If still acting up, clean and re-kit the carburetor. Hope this helps!

Husqvarna 130BT leaf blower - locked-up

If you stored it with fuel in it, the piston and cylinder may be stuck together. The old fuel turns to a gummy varnish. spray some WD-40 in to the cylinder through the spark plug hole and rock the flywheel back and forth to break it loose. Then flush the fuel system and carburetor. If that isn't the problem, remove the muffler and inspect the piston, rings, and cylinder for vertical scoring, if scoring is present a top end rebuild may be necessary.
