Replacing brake band on Husqvarna 357/359/340/345/350/346/445 and many others


Before attempting to repair any chain brake, eye protection should always be worn, these machines all have an out board chain brake, known as a knee link brake due to its actuating mechanism, start by makeing sure the brake is off, by pulling the brake handle fully back to the top handle, now remove the bar securing nuts, remove the brake/side cover, the hand guard stays with the saw, so the cover is quite difficult to hold when removing the spring, so take two 8 mm bolts, clamp the hex heads in a vice, spacing them out the same as the fixing holes in the brake, now fit the brake /cover band up onto the up standing bolts, use the two bar nuts to secure the brake to the bolts, now insert special tool part no. 502522202 into the actuating quadrant and turn to activate the brake ( this will remove much of the spring tention ) if you do not have the tool you can remove the hand guard from the saw and use that, or a sturdy pair of long nose pliers, now remove the cross head screws from the spring cover, edge the back of the spring up enough to insert a suitable screw driver into the end, lever the spring up and onto the screw driver shaft ( this will stop it flying out ) remove the c clip securing the actuating quadrant to the brake cover, gently lever out the roll pin in the anchor end of the band, the band will now lift out of the cover, remove the single cross head screw securing the knee link mechanism to the band. Refit the new band into the knee link and re fit the screw, re fit the quadrant onto the post in the cover and re fit the e clip, press the anchor end of the band back into the cover, insert the spring back onto the knee link spigot, compress the spring and push it back into the cover, the best way to compress the spring is to use a good pair of long nose pliers, push the closed jaws into the end of the spring ( this will stop the spring flying out ) now push the pliers in to compress the spring against the knee link, and back into the cover, refit the spring cover screws, you now need to load the brake before it can be put back onto the saw, use the special tool, or the removed hand guard to do this, it will take a fair amount of force to re load the brake, once loaded re fit to the saw.

I have a Rancher 455 chainsaw - when changing the chain the brake did not disengage and now I can not get the clutch cover back on - any suggestions?


I have done the same exact thing myself. It's not going to be easy. I had to compress the spring by hand. there should be a little cover screwed down covering the spring, carefully remove it. this spring is pretty strong, so if you let it out of the channel its in, it probably going to eject across the room. I don't think theres a specific method, just use ingenuity and force the spring to open up the ring that grabs the oustide of the clutch, and move the mechanism inside to lock it there, then re-cover the spring, line up the 3 notches, and it'll go right back on. Don't be surprised if it takes a little while.

I have a 14" husgvarna


Depends on what model we are talking about,if the hand guard stays with the machine, then take the retaining screws out and remove it, you can now insert this into the cover and use it to load the brake, it will take a fair amount of force as it is compressing a fairly large spring.

I have 2000 ls , took eng apart and found cam chain broke. and wonder what cause it to break clean? nothing is bang up.should i place cam chain and that be it or there more to it?


Very rare that a chain breaks. I'd replace the chain and before closing it up, turn the engine by hand and see if anything is binding or frozen in the valvetrain. Also look carefully at the valve springs to make sure that no valves have bent. (if bent, most times the spring will not return to normal height)

How to adjust primary chain and clutch on 04 1200c thanks


First, let's adjust the primary chain first. Remove the upper inspection hole cover. Stick your finger in the hole, find the chain, and raise and lower it. With the engine cold, the chain should have 3/8" to 1/2" up and down movement. To adjust this, look underneath the primary. You'll see a bolt and a lock nut. under the primary. Loosen the lock nut and turn the adjuster to adjust the tension in the chain. Adjusting the bolt upwards tightens the chain, lowering it loosens the chain. If you get the chain too tight, lower the chain until you get too much movement in it and then raise the adjuster again.

On the clutch, remove the clutch release mechanism cover. Remove the spring and the lock nut. Find the cable adjuster in the middle of the clutch cable. Move the cover up or down, break the lock nut, and adjust the cable adjuster inwards until you get a lot of slack in the cable. Turn the adjuster bolt at the relaese mechanism counterclockwise until it stops. Then turn it back clockwise 1/2 turn. Install the locknut and spring and cover. Go back and adjust the cable adjuster outwards until you have about an 1/8" freeplay. Lock the lock nut and replace the cover.

Good Luck

HOW DO THE SPRING ATTACHED TO THE SAFETY BAR BACK IN SLOT; IT APPEARS TO BE TO STIFF TO COMPRESS BY HAND


Try compressing the spring with a Channel-lock type of pliers, hold it over the slot and use a small hammer to tap the spring into the slot while keeping the spring compressed. Good luck!

My garage door will not open. The motor hums when I press the garage door button but nothing happens. If I remove the chain, the motor runs as normal and the gear rotates as normal. If I put the chain...


Check to ensure one or more of your garage door springs isn't broken (they last about 10 years). Most doors, especially double wides, have two or more springs. If one breaks, as they ultimately will, the motor won't have enough mechanical assistance from the spring to lift the door; however, gravity and one good spring will certainly close it.

I have a Husqvarna 345e chainsaw. Can't get the cover back on.


That metal band you see which is preventing you from putting on the cover is part of the chain break mechanism. You were suppose to disengage the break before taking off the cover (I did the same thing). To get it back together you need to disengage the break by a tricky procedure and that will make the band diameter larger so it fits over the clutch. To force the band open, you need to first place the cover over the two bolts that hold the bar. As you already know, the back of the cover will not be able to fit over the clutch. Now in this angled position, bend (force) the break lever down (gray thing on top) until you can force together the sproket in the cover onto the mating pastic fitting built into the break lever. Now you can use the break lever to force down the internal spring and open the metal band. That will expand the stainless steel band and it will fit around the clutch. If you now push down on the back of the cover it will snap in over the clutch. Once you see how it is done, it is not so hard, but it is tricky because you are forcing some of the parts slightly out of position to get it back together. .
