Also as old as my Husky 37.

It appears to route the handle and to the carburetor mounting area.
Here is the IPL for the Husky 40.

You need a carburetor kit. The needle valve in the car. is stuck open. The needle valve helps to control the flow of fuel.

SOURCE: installing throttle cable on Husqvarna 445 chainsaw

Try blocking the throttle arm on the carburetor in the wide-open position with a small stick, then deal with the trigger mechanism. In order to remove the cable from the carburetor, you need to remove the carburetor itself, then unhook the cable end at the throttle arm. Keep track of which fuel hose goes where if you do this. Hope this helps!

Replace the ignition coil on the flywheel side. I'm fairly sure that is the problem.

SOURCE: Carburetor setting for Husqvarna 372xp chainsaw

The jet screws are fuel not air screws, the more they are unscrewd the richer the mixture becomes, basic settings are one and a quarter on the L screw and one turn on the H screw, you will have to fine tune from there, idle speed should be around 3000rpm, and max speed should not exceed 13000rpm, this should be set with a suitable engine tacho, when fine tuning always start with the L screw first, start gently screwing it in, the revs will start to increase as it leans off, when it starts to die because its too lean, unscrew until the revs pick up again, as you keep unscrewing you will hear the revs start to drop because it is becoming richer, leave it there, now blip the throttle, it should pick up instantly, if not turn the screw out a further 1/8 of a turn, the H screw is like a govener the more you screw it in the faster it revs, so do not exceed the 13000 rpm or this is a good chance it could seize, before any adjustments the fuel filter in the tank should be clean or replaced, the air filter should be cleaned and fresh fuel should be used.

I installed a new after market gas tank on mi 365 huski when i start it, it runs at full throttle, with and without the throttle cable attached

Recheck your assembly...Something is either has the carburetor throttle plate held open or you have an intake air leak. Nothing to do with the tank other assembly problem.

How can i adjusting the throttle on a husqvarna ?

Depending on the model Husqvarna, there is an idle adjustment you can make. However, Federal Government and EPA will not allow you to change the settings on the carburetor's High and Low needle settings. This must be done by a certified Husqvarna dealer.

I can't figure out how to re-attach the throttle wire to the carburetor and handle on my husqvarna 235 chainsaw

To re assemble the carb, connect the throttle wire into the r/h side of the carb, there is a small hole in the throttle spindle, thread the wire into the spindle from the out side and twist so it stays in the spindle, you must do this with the carb off the saw, now push the carb with the wire connected back onto the two studs from the cylinder, refit the black air filter box, fit and tighten the two 8mm nuts, re fit the torx 20 screw into the top of the filter box, re fit the orange plastic plate on the r/h side of the crankcase, now re fit the the back handle and spine assembly, fit the three torx screws back through the anti vib springs and into the crankcase, if not already done remove the three screws securing the l/h side rear handle half, hook the other end of the throttle rod into the trigger, refit the handle half.

Wher do the two carburator linkages hook up to a husqvarna on a 455 rancher

The throttle wire plasric end sits through the back of the crancase and into the square cut a way into the tank back handle, the hooked wire end drops into the carb throttle spindle on the r/h side of the carb, the blue clip on the spendle then rotated and locks the wire in, the choke pull just pushes into the choke spindle on the l/h side of the carb, it has a bullet style end to stop it popping out again

You need to inspect the throttle mechanism at the carburetor. When you pull the throttle trigger, it should move the throttle arm to it's 'full on' stop, and when it is released, the arm should come back to the idle stop screw. If the action seems to be indefinite, take the throttle trigger mechanism apart (make notes of part placement as you go), and clean it of sawdust and dirt. Don't run the engine until the throttle is working correctly. The 'stop' switch may also be full of sawdust, or the connecting wire may be damaged. Make sure the carburetor fasteners are tight as an air leak behind the carburetor can cause engine racing. Hope this helps!

It is running lean. Continued operation like that will cause it to fail. Spend $40 for a tune up by your friendly neighborhood chainsaw seller/mechanic. If you ask nice they will show the location of the carburetor adjustments (3 normally). HTH
