Electronic ignition systems are not fixable as a rule--everything is potted. Magneto types with points are usually centered around the points. Not sure what type you have. Points must have clean contact surfaces and open (high point of cam) about .020"--about the thickness of a paper match cover. If the contacts are in bad shape, then the condenser and points should be replaced. The coil is a possible, but not as common, failure.

No spark on Huskvarna Rancher 55

disconnect any and all kill wires going to the coil... if you still have no spark then it can ONLY be the coil... if this produces spark then you have a kill system problem or your flywheel has no magnetism... and this can be the only solution as you do not have points/condenser or things just went full derp

Husqvarna rancher 55 chainsaw having problem starting have spark new spark plug, plug is wet after trying to start it

You need to check that this machine is mechanically sound, remove the muffler and check the condition of the piston skirt through the open exhaust port, any signs of scuffing ( seizure ), and the cylinder will need to be removed to assess the damage

I have a Rancher 55 18" with a new chain. Started

First thing you need to check is the cylinder.Take the spark plug ouy.use a flashlight and look down the hole towards the muffler side.If its scratched up afraid the motor is shot and will need to be rebuilt.If its not scratched up let me know on here.Then I will give you more things to check.

I've got a 55 Rancher that just won't start. I was using it on a tree job one day, stopped to refuel, flooded it, and it hasn't ran since. It's getting a spark from the plug, everything is hooked up like...

You need certain things to be correct for the engine to run, clean fuel getting to the cylinder, a spark ( occurring at the correct time ) and the machine to be mechanically sound.
So remove the spark plug, is it wet? if not remove the hose and filter from inside the fuel tank, remove the filter and replace, if the plug is wet, then place the plug against the cylinder ( away from the open plug hole ) crank the engine, is there a spark? if not replace the ignition unit, if there is a spark, remove the muffler and check the condition of the piston face through the open port, any signs of scuffing or melting the saw has seized and will require stripping to assess the condition.

I have a rancher 55 and I had to reconnect the gas line to the carburator and now I can't reconnect the throttle I need a view of the throttle assembley. Where can I find one thank you

55 IPLs start at page 4 but I doubt it has the level of detail you need.
Enter the 3 digit model number (no XPs, Es, just the numbers)
Serial number decode – useful when downloading IPLs and Manuals
06 1500198
06 = year produced – 2006 (single digit before 2000)
15 = week produced - March
00198 = 198th unit Husky produced that week

I suggest you go here and join.

The following thread is about your saw. Someone of will probably be willing to provide the photo you need. There are other threads where your saw is discussed.
I must warn you. Many that frequent here develop an obsession with chainsaws. When I joined I had 1 and had only owned 2. I now own 7 and am always on the look out for a new one.
Good luck with your project. HTH

Husqvarana Rancher 55 , how to clean the exhaust port

Cleaning the exhaust: on the saws I've worked with it was just to loosen two bolts at the front and then the exhaust is off the saw. Clean with brake cleaning fluid and blow with compressed air, let it dry before assembling. Don't forget to clean the fine mesh at the output side underneath the lid if present (i.e the spark arrestor).

Make sure to have your carb adjusted properly afterwards.
