The piston rings rely on the oil in the gas to lubricate the cylinder wall. More than likely, the rings are now too small to provide the proper seal for enough compression. It could also have worn the cylinder wall more than the rings, the end result is the same.

You can try to remove the plug, put in about a 1/2 teaspoon of oil into the plug opening, slowly pulll the rope 1 time to let the oil coat the ring & wall & then put the plug back in & try to start it. Use a little extra oil in your gas to provide thicker lubrication. good luck

What is the gas / oil ratio mixture for husqvarna 455 rancher model ?


50:1 that's 2.6 ounces of 2-stroke oil (preferably with fuel stabilizer) to one gallon of gas. I recommend using 89 octane gasoline for all small engines. It has little or no ethanol in it, as opposed to the 10% typical in 87 or 86 octane fuel. This will prevent a lot of fuel issues, especially if you are not using the tool daily or at least weekly.

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.

You need to check that this machine is mechanically sound, remove the muffler and check the condition of the piston skirt through the open exhaust port, any signs of scuffing ( seizure ), and the cylinder will need to be removed to assess the damage

Husqvarna 55 rancher-just put new piston ring and cylinder.saw start right up and idles.when i try to acellerate it bogs and try to stall.when I let off gas it idles fine again.I tried turning mixture...


The plastic carb mount has a hole and a slot, this is the pulse channel from the cylinder to work the pump diaphram in the carb, if you look behind the plastic plate there is a tube that fits into the cylinder under the black induction rubber, this feeds a positive and negative pressure to the carb as the piston rises and falls, make sure you have re fitted the small seal in the cylinder that seals this tube or you will have big running problems.
Let me know if you need more help.
