If all parts are installed properly, then the problem has to be in the cylinder / compression. Have the saw checked for compression and have a pressure / vacuum test done to the saw.

Husquvarna 350 chainsaw won't stay running

There could be a couple of things wrong. Check fuel filter and fuel lines for integrity. Then check air filter. Replace sparkplug with proper resistor style plug. If the saw will still not run, check compression, should be between 120 - 145 lbs.
Still nothing, check to make sure ignition has good ground where it mounts on case.

I have a husqvarna partner K960 concrete saw that the skirt of the piston on the exhaust side has shattered, there is no scoring in the bore, the actually sides of the piston above the damage has no...

If the piston is working in the cylinder properly, that part of the piston shouldn't be making contact with the cylinder wall so lubrication shouldn't contribute to its demise unless it was bad enough to lead to enough heat buildup to cause the failure. It is most likely the metal was weak in a way or spot that the force of the piston going up and down was enough for the metal to finally fail. Of course the faster the motor is turning the higher those forces are so over reving the motor could certainly lead to this type of failure.

Hi I have a K960 saw which is a good starter and runs perfect for 5mins after which time it will only tick over - when I try to accelerate it by opening the throttle it then spits petrol back from the carb...

First thing would be to remove the muffler and make sure it isn't plugged with carbon. At that same time you can visually inspect the piston and cylinder. If there is any scoring on either then both will need to be replaced. There are other possibilities too like carb issues or bad crank seals but I always start with the exhaust. You could also take a compression reading if you have a tester. Make sure any compression release (if so equipped) is NOT pushed in. Have the throttle wide open but NO choke and pull 3 to 5 times or until the gauge quits rising. You should see at least 90 psi. If it is around 60 or less then most likely the piston and cylinder are scored or at least the rings are shot.

How to prep and change a blade for gas concrete saw

With the bolt and first washer removed, there will be an inner washer and an arbor to centralise the blade, 14" mahines will normally have a 25.4mm arbor ( 1" ) make sure the blade you intend to fit has the same centre hole as the arbor, fit the bade onto the arbor, if there is a direction arrow fit the correct way, refit the outer washer and tighten the bolt.

Husquvarna starter will not pull

Most saws have a relief valve that you push to let some of the compression out. It is there for that reason. Usually located at the back by the back handle . try to see if that helps. I may need to know what year the saw is.
