Question about Husqvarna Garden

1 Answer

Husqvarna 460 xtorq with not start. Just replaced the clutch and sprocket now it will not start. I'be got spark. Thought it might be flooded but tried open throttle start and let saw sit for two days.

I even tried emptying the cylinder thinking there might be to much full in it. Also clean air filter.

    Hi William Rich, I want to help you with your question, but I need more information from you. Can you please add details in the comment box?
    How did prevent the crank from turning when removing and installing the clutch?

    I first used a flat head screw driver and then a piece of rope. I inspected the cylinder and piston and found that I scored both accidentally. This could be the problem. No compression.

  • Eugene Rounds Dec 07, 2014

    Yes the lack of compression is definely going to be big cause of the problem. Depending on how bad you scored the cylinder you may have jammed the compression ring But be prepared for a full top end replacement.

  • Eugene Rounds Dec 07, 2014

    In future you should a regular piston stop. The rope trick works a lot times but there setups that it will not work very well. I tried this yet but are planning to take a bolt of the proper size and thread pitch and grind off the leading edge threads an half inch or so to make a homemade piston stop tool.

There should be two adjustment holes for the carb turn them to the left as far as they can go not tight just less than snug and then turn to the right half turns at a time and then fine tune when it starts

SOURCE: 353 husqvarna chainsaw, floods during start process

Husqvarna says the initial carburetor needle valve settings are from lightly seated 1 turn CCW for both H & L.

Your Operator's Manual can be downloaded here:
http://weborder.husqvarna.com/order_static/doc/HOUS/HOUS2004/HOUS2004_1140204-95.pdf
Once flooded Huskys are very hard to start. This works well on my 359.
Start Procedure
Cold:

  1. Ignition on/off to on
  2. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release
  3. Pull (close - sets fast idle) pull starter and listen for an attempt to start. once heard (usually two pulls)
  4. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release
  5. Push (open) choke pull starter until it starts. (usually the next pull)
Warm:
  1. Ignition on/off to on
  2. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release
  3. Pull (close - sets fast idle) choke, - Don’t pull with choke closed.
  4. Push (open - fast idle maintained) choke, pull starter until it starts. (usually first pull)
Hope this helps
Lou

Remove the spark plug and check for blue, snappy spark. If nothing, try a new plug--set gap at 0.020". If still nothing and machine is still under warranty, take it back to your dealer for free repair. The problem could be the ignition switch or the ignition module. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: chain saw carburator settings for husqvarna 61

Turn both screws CW to stops (lightly), then back out CCW 1-1/2 turns each. This is a basic setting and the engine should start and run. Allow the engine to warm up, then pull the throttle full on. Turn the H jet screw CW until the engine starts to speed up, but still 4-strokes. Proper adjustment occurs when the engine is 4-stroking, but immediately 2-strokes when cutting. This gives best power and lowest heat. Release the throttle and adjust L jet CW until the engine idles fairly well, but will allow the engine to 'follow the throttle'. Adjust idle speed screw so that the chain stops turning, but the engine continues to run. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: my husqvarna 575xp chain saw starts and runs for

I had the same problem with my 575 xp and was able to correct it by cleaning the orange nipple that the gas tank breather hose connects to. The hole in the nipple is really tiny. I cleaned it out with a fine wire and then blew air through it.

Husqvarna 576xp auto tune won't start seem to be flooding


you might have to have the unit re-calibrated with the auto tune software available at husqvarna dealer. there is no adjustments that you can do with an auto-tune carb. it will need to be hooked up to a computer at your husqvarna dealer.

Why does the chain keeps tightening


Has it ever come off while using it? If so, there may be burrs on the drive teeth making the chain wider than the bar opening, also if there is no oil getting to chain while operating chain could bind from heat, check sprocket on the bar tip for blockage and inspect the clutch bearing.

Replace sprocket on rancher 460


The factory do not offer a rim sprocket for the 455/460, they are classed as semi pro saws and as such get a spur sprocket, there may be an Oregon after market one available.

Husqvarna 460 rancher: oil pump not working. Clutch ran hot a few times. When the bar and chain are removed no oil appears from the supply port


The oil pump is adjustable ( 3 positions ) the adjuster screw is located under the crankcase below the sprocket, there is also a filter in the oil tank, you will need to gently lever out the oil pick up pipe from the oiltank, it has a grommet in the centre to keep it tight in the tank, failing that there is a nylon gear driven via the drive sprocket, this may have become damaged.
