Sounds like you removed it with the brake on?
Start by removing the bar and chain, then put the cover on and tighten the nots only hand tight. then push the cover in at the point where it connects to the brake handle, then pull the handke back with your left hand while holding it in, That will reset the brake. Then reinstall the bar and chain, and your good to go.

I have a 455 rancher.I take very good care of my equipment but. the manual states to lube the clutch bearing.How can I do this with out tearing the clutch apart.It may also need special tools?Any help...


The passage in the operatore manual is the same in all mauals, it is taken from the pro saw manual, here you can grease the bearing through the end of the crank, you cannot do this on the 455, you do need to remove the clutch and drum, the reality is that the drum bearing is only turning if the saw is idling without the chain rotating, the crank then turns in the drum, unless you leave the saw idling for long periods of time ( this is bad practice ) the bearing is doing very little, there is normally plenty of oil flying around to lubricate it, to remove the cluch there is two cut a ways in the clutch spider, these are designed to take the screw driver from the combi wrench, with a suitable hammer jarr the clutch against the compression of the saw until it un spins from the crank ( left hand thread )

Will start but will not stay running


The 455 was very prone to blocking the fuel tank vent, as a test, when the saw starts to die release the fuel cap, if the saw picks back up and runs normally it is a breather issue, the breather is pressed into the crankcase under the starter cover.

Husq 455 rancher chain saw. the chain locking spring in the cover is in the lock position and will not mount on the saw. how do i release the spring tension?


you should be able to release it with a flat screwdriver. you should see something that looks like a wheel where the chain brake locks to the brake handle when you put the cover back on. you should be able to twist that wheel and unlock it that way.

It sounds like the chain is too tight. Loosen up the tension on the chain by turning the tensioning screw located on the end of the saw where the bar goes out.

Cutting with 455 rancher chain locked up took cover off ,replaced chain and put cover on still locked up


Husqvarna - IPL, 455 Rancher/ 460, 2006-02, Chain Saw (example - may not be your saw):
http://weborder.husqvarna.com/order_static/doc/usa/2006/I06000/I0601076.pdf
See Detail A, pn 503 89 08-02. You can use a Crescent Wrench on one of the ears (left end) to reset it. With the cover positioned with pn 503 89 08-02 in the upper left rotate it CW until it nests, to reset it.

This works quite well:
Reset Chain Brake by Dolfoff
Please follow this link, http://www.fixya.com/support/t3102817-re_install_side_cover_after_chain
Cursor down to “Best Solution”, while there click the “Was this helpful? [Yes]” button
If you do not have a vise a large C clamp to a work surface might work, you may still need a block or two of wood.

You can download the IPL for you saw here:
HusqvarnaUSA.com
http://www.husqvarna.com/us/homeowner/support/download-manuals/
Enter the 3 digit model number (no XPs, Es, just the numbers)
Serial number decode – useful when downloading IPLs and Manuals
06 1500198
06 = year produced – 2006 (single digit before 2000)
15 = week produced - March
00198 = 198th unit Husky produced that week

I will wager you will NEVER again remove the cover with the brake set. Me either! Good Luck. HTH

How do i remove the cover to get to the chain for husqvarna455


It really depends on which model 455 rancher you have. The "455e" models have a lever on the chain cover that you lift and turn counterclockwise in order to remove. The regular 455 models have two nuts that you remove in order to take the chain cover off. There is also a chain tensioner on both. On the 455e model you turn the wheel down to increase tension and on the 455 you turn the screw below the foremost nut to tension. Remember that you want to just snug the chain to the bar. You should be able to rotate the chain around the bar by hand.

ARE YOU SURE THE KICK BACK BAR IS NOT ENGAGED , IF YOU HAVE PULLED IT BACK VIGOROUSLY AND STILL HAVE PROBLEM IT IS PROBABLY NOT ENGAGED , THEN THE NEXT BEST CK IS TO REMOVE THE BAR AND COVER ,LAY DOWN AS IT CAME OFF SO NO MIX UP IN RE-INSTALL WITH IT OFF SEE IF THE DRIVE GEAR IS TURNING IF SO PROBLEM COULD BE IN BAR , YOU MIGHT ALSO TRY TO LOOSEN THE CHAIN UP A WEE BIT AND SEE IF THIS HELPS , REMEMBER WEAR SAFETY GLASSES AND GLOVES AND STAY CLEAR OF ALL MOVING PARTS
