Open Question

Just rebuilt a 55 rancher and doesn't like to stay running. Its sounds like it is running out of gas? I replaced the filter, gas line, and gas tank breather but still no luck. I am wondering if the crank case is leaking but see no signs og a leak?

SOURCE: Husqvarana Rancher 55 , how to clean the exhaust port

Cleaning the exhaust: on the saws I've worked with it was just to loosen two bolts at the front and then the exhaust is off the saw. Clean with brake cleaning fluid and blow with compressed air, let it dry before assembling. Don't forget to clean the fine mesh at the output side underneath the lid if present (i.e the spark arrestor).

Make sure to have your carb adjusted properly afterwards.

Check for plugged fuel filter and muffler. Check the fuel lines for decay or damage. Did you service the carburetor? Make sure the lower chamber diaphragm is not hard or cracked. Did you change the two jet settings? Put some fuel mix into the plug hole and pull it through--you should get a pop or two. If ok, then concentrate on the fuel problem. If no spark at the plug, check the ignition module gap to the flywheel magnets using a thin business card for a gauge. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: chain oil leaks out quickly

Remove the bar and chain. Clean the engine side case where the bar fits. Does the oil port itself leak or is it coming from the engine case? If from the case, it may be a loose or split line from the tank or it could be a cracked oil tank. If the tank is cracked, replace it as there is no glue or epoxy that can permanently repair it. If the leakage seems to have stopped, clean the drive end of the bar including the two small oil passages that run out to the chain groove. Re-assemble the bar and chain, then run the bar tip at speed near some cardboard for a few moments--it should throw off a thin line of oil. This saw should have an oil volume adjustment screw located near the chain return area on the back or underneath the case. Adjust CW to reduce the oil volume. Hope some of this helps!

check your fuel filter/gas line in tank you could have a crack in your line that in the fuel till it gets below half tank then sucks air through crack, It's a possibility, other than that, check your exhaust port, but sounds like a fuel problem check your fuel tank vent also to make sure it is venting. Good Luck

How do you change a fuel filter on a husquavarna 455 rancher


Hi Rick,

To change the fuel filter:

1. Drain the gas from the tank and run the saw until it is completely out of gas.
2. Remove the top cover. You might also have to remove the air filter.
3. Locate the fuel line from the tank to the carb. Detach the line from the carburetor.
4. Feed some of the line into the tank if you can. With pliers, pull filter far enough out of tank through the fill hole so you can get the filter and a little of the line.
5. Pull the filter off and replace with new one by twisting it onto the line.
6. With pliers, pull the line back to the carb from the top and reattach to the carb.

Hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate your vote. Thank,

Handie Andie

My 455 rancher bogs down when i give it gas it's not even under a load new plug air filter, fuel filter, made carb adjustments like manual said running 93 octane gas.it,s still bogging


Make sure the chain break is releasing all the way. When the saw is not running release the chain break and make sure you can move the chain back and forth by hand. If you can there is a small fuel filter in the gas tank that should be replaced. Make sure the fuel lines are not spongy because they could collasp when the engine is running starving the carburetor for fuel.

Saw runs out of petrel and stops, when plenty of petrol in tank


Try opening the fuel cap for a moment to see if tank venting is the problem. If no change, check the fuel filter for plugging and the fuel line that it is attached to for decay or other damage. The fuel line in the tank should be long and flexible enough to allow the filter to flop around to find the low point no matter the operating position. Hope this helps!

I have a husqvarna 455 rancher that won't run at full throttle unless the choke is on. It runs at half throttle fine.


Clean or replace the fuel filter. Check the fuel lines for decay or other damage. Check the muffler for plugging of the screen. Be sure to run with fresh fuel mix and to shake the container thoroughly each time just before filling the tank to prevent oil starvation. Hope this helps!

Husqvarna ranger 55 chainsaw starts but quits


I too have a rancher 55 and had what sounds like the same problem this week. It would start fine but run for only a few seconds at a time. I took it all apart today and found the problem - a cracked fuel line. In the places where I could see the hose it looked fine, but it wasn't until I removed the fuel tank that I found the crack...right where it exits the tank and then goes thru the housing above it. You don't need to remove the tank to replace the hose but it is easier that way. You do have to push it thru a grommet at the top of the tank. I read some other posts about checking the tank vent to see that it's not plugged up. Mine was ok so I knew it had to be something else. The vent is in a hole about the size of a pencil and is recessed about an inch into the tank on the upper right side. Its partially covered by a plastic cap that's part of the vibration damper, which can be removed to gain access to the vent. The vent tube can then be pushed out from inside the tank with the use of long needle nose pliers, but be gentle. I just loosened it then pushed it out with a finger. I put it all back together with a new hose and its running like new again!

Chainsaw kills when I press the throttle


My 372 xp did that and when I talked to the repair shop they even showed me. There is a fiberglass gasket that is used to mount the carburetor to the engine. I have no idea on how this happens, but I saw it with my own eyes. The gasket had actually folded over. They replaced it with a rubber one and have had no problem since. The saw was hard to start, would run as long as I didn't try to cut anything and when I did it would open up and then die. I could be giving wrong information, but that sounds exactly like the problem I was having.
