If the helicoil does not fit perfectly ( and it has to be tight because of the compression from the engine will just blow it and the plug out, you can take some drastic measures and JBWeld the Helicoil into the block.

SOURCE: no fire

Two possibilities left.
You have a short in your stop circuit or bent/out of place component. To check this unhook the small wire on the coil and tuck it out of the way. Put your recoil back on and try to start it. If it starts you need to follow the wire and look for any exposed wire. No exposed wire then you need to follow the mechanical portion of the on/off switch, something is not aligned right or a spring is worn out.

Next check your flywheel to coil air gap. Place a cover of a notebook or a piece of cardboard from a cigarette pack between the flywheel and the coil. This will get you the proper air gap. Then tighten down the coil. If that's not it, you have a bad flywheel. It's very rare but does happen.

Note: while you have the flywheel exposed, clean it up with light grit sandpaper (180 grit or finer) or steel wool. Rust can interfere with the electrical field.

If you have been running ethnol mix in your saw there is a good chance that your fuel vent line is plugged. Loosen your fuel cap and start saw on its side and see if it runs. If it does you will have to clean your fuel vent.

A Husqvarva IPL for a 455 Rancher 2005-01, follows (may not be your saw):
http://weborder.husqvarna.com/order_static/doc/usa/2005/I05000/I0501036.pdf
See print "A" (clutch cover) pn 537 28 64-01 & pn 503 21 70-10, if missing or loose these may cause your problem. If not an inspection of the parts beneath may disclose the defect.

If the bar is what can be moved pn 537 28 65-01 or 537 28 66-01 may be stripped. After I determined what parts need replacement, I would contact a local Husky Dealer. They may have these parts on hand and if not ordering through them should save you shipping and handling fees.

If your saw was not manufactured between Jan 2005 and Mar 2005 you can find your IPL here:

Enter the 3 digit model number (no XPs, Es, just the numbers)

06 = year produced – 2006 (single digit before 2000; please contact Husqvarna for single digit clarification http://www.husqvarna.com/us/homeowner/support/customer-support/)
15 = week produced – March
00198 = 198th unit Husky produced that week

Will not start


Do you have good compression.

If its flooding then its probably a carb issue. Strip and clean carb, check diaphrams and reset hi and low screws to standard settings. Screw both needles in and unscrew them:- H 3/4 of a turn anticlockwise and L 1 full turn anti clockwise.

Here's the breakdown for the carb. (dont use airlines to clean carbs)

Husqvarna 455 rancher new filters /plug get spark wont start put gas in cylinder and wont start what am i missing


Check to see if there is a leak in the air purge bulb (primer bulb), sometimes they crack and allow air in and don't push the gas through properly. Here is the manual for your saw.

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.
