Problem is you removed side cover with chain brake closed. You must open the chain brake to re-install the cover. You can do it with the handle. Put the side cover into position, put the handle into the fitting on the side cover. push the handle forward until you feel the "3" point connector engage. apply pressure to the handle and pull back until the side chain brake "Pops" open. Your Husqvarna dealer has a tool to open the chain brake if you are unable to get it open. Takes about 5 mins.

SOURCE: 455 rancher chainsaw does not pump oil to the chain

If you look under the machine by the chain you'll see a flat head screw (next to the sprocket) which controls the bar and chain oil flow . Try to turn the screw and check if there's any oil flow to the chain . If not you will need to replace the oil pump (part # 537 10 55-02 which will cost you about $35.00) Hope this help

I will wager you will NEVER again remove the cover with the brake set. Me either! Good Luck. HTH

SOURCE: how to disengage or fix chain break on husqvarna

It sounds as though you have tried resetting the brake to no avail. If I were you any Monday through Friday at 1300 - 1500 I would be in my local Husky dealer (not Lowes). Someone familiar with the saw that can see and touch it. I suspect you will need parts once the problem is isolated, order them there and the diagnosis will probably be gratis. Factor in the shipping and handling fee and most dealer prices are competitive.

If you have more questions or need additional help please reply below and I will get back to you. Good Luck. HTH

How do you rePlace the chain on the 455 rancher?


You take the chain cover off of the bar. It is two nuts. Take them off and the cover will come off. Slide the bar toward you and the chain will become slack. You can then slide off the chain from the sprocket. To put a new one on. You will need to turn the chain adjustment back all the way to the left. Then put the chain back over the sprocket, then onto the bar. Put the chain cover back on and tighten the chain back up. Then tighten the two nuts back to tight.

Bar thru the chain, pulled the side cover off with difficulty and now cannot get the side cover back on, appears the roundish bearing on the cover won't go over the round bearing that covers the chain...


I just had the problem of not being able to put the cover back on because the brake wwas engaged when I took it apart. What I did was use a #4 allen wrench and take the brake lever off being careful of the spring on the brake handle. There is a screw on both sides. I then put the cover loosely in a vise, and using the brake handle reset the brake to the correct position. It went back together easily. Probably took me ten minutes.

Husq 455 rancher chain saw. the chain locking spring in the cover is in the lock position and will not mount on the saw. how do i release the spring tension?


you should be able to release it with a flat screwdriver. you should see something that looks like a wheel where the chain brake locks to the brake handle when you put the cover back on. you should be able to twist that wheel and unlock it that way.

Husqvarna 455 Rancher - oil coming out of muffler and not oiler. Just emptied gas and remixed new batch so that should not be issue. It was working fine until I took off chain cover to clean and got brake...


Re-clean the engine case and loose parts. Start the engine with the bar removed--oil should ooze out of the side port where the bar fits to, but nowhere else. Clean the bar drive end oil passages--especially the two small channels that go out to the chain groove on both sides. If you seem to be pumping excess oil out, there should be an oil volume adjustment screw either in the back case or just underneath the case near the lower run of chain. Turn the screw CW to lessen the volume of oil. Hope this helps!

Chainsaw clutch/chain break cover installationis a pain in the neck...


First make sure it is clean and be sure the brake is disengaged. If the problem is getting the bar/chain lined up while trying to install the cover set up some blocks like 4X4s to keep the bar in line as you assemble the cover while the saw is on it's side.

I took the sprocket cover off to remove the bar and chain while i had the chain break engaged. (idiot) NOW i cant get the thing back on. any ideas?


It must be reset before you can reinstall it.
This answer stolen from Dolfoff;

Clamp the cover in a vise being careful to stay on flat surfaces of the cover (use wooden blocks if needed) and pull the brake lever back to the "OFF" position. It's a strong spring so pull hard in the direction that would be towards the rear of the saw if the cover were installed.
Hope this helps.

I have a husqvarna 455 rancher. It was working


Take it right back to repair shop and have them fix under their warranty.

It is possible the fuel hasn't got to the carbureator due to plugged fuel filter or fuel finder OR an air leak in the fuel hose.

What size file to sharpen chain for 55 rancher


It depends on the chain you have installed on the chainsaw. You can look at the numbers stamped on the drive link side of the cutting chain and it should have a 2 digit number that correlates to the size.

The factory chain supplied with the #455 rancher was a .325" pitch 3/8" chain.

Here's a link to the specs for your saw with some useful info
