Most chainsaw shops will install a Helicoil cheaper than you can buy the tools. If I am not mistaken this is a common problem on that saw. Husky dealer might be best option.

Go to and see if their product would help you.We used to use heli-coils in our saw's but they just would not last very long.Have had very good results with the ezlok insert combined with a makeshift front muffler bracket.

    Yes this is a common problem for this model.When you go and veiw husqvarna saw bullitens you will see that they have a part number for the inserts,when you get them they are the ezlok brand.We installed these in at least 50 saws and never had one fail,even with my dealer discount its still cheaper to get them from an auto parts store.

I have A husgvarna 350 chainsaw that got real hot the muffler screw came off causing the muffler to wiggle to a slant and melt my plastic right above the bar. What should I do that is very unusual.

There was an issue with the muffler bolts comeing loose, to that end a muffler with a third fixing hole was introduced, if the oil tank below the muffler is melted to the point that the chain oil is leaking out, then it will need a new crankcase.

Muffler falls off while running

If this is the Husqvarna 350, then there was an issue with the muffler coming loose, there was a retro fit muffler with a third fixing screw available, if the muffler comes loose there is a chance that it will melt the tank underneath, so you need to address this problem.

I purchased a Husky 350 in 2003. Other than the usual problem of the muffler falling off from time to time it's proformed well otherwise. Until a week or two ago. The saw started running faster than...

The muffler falling off was a common fault, there was a later muffler with a third fixing screw in the top, you can retro fit this if you wish, as for the running, it certainly sounds like a fuel issue, the rubber boot conection on the cylinder also incorperates the impulse tube, make sure the tube has not split and come off, it is a short curled pipe from the bottom of the rubber induction boot, this creates the pulse to the carb pump, als make sure the clip around the boot has not come undone.

Need to replace the muffler on my husky 272

It should be easy enough, there are two 6mm allen screws sunk down into the muffler holding it to the cylinder, the front support is held with two allen screws into the muffler itself, there is then a screw in the front of the oil tank, and a long screw from the r/h side that also secures the felling spike.

Saw stalled after last cut,and seems to have lost compression

Doesnt sound good, remove the two muffler screws, remove the muffler, check the condition of the piston through the exhaust port, any signs of scuffing, or piston damage and the cylinder will have to come off for possible replacement. Cylinders are very expensive so you need to consider wheather this is a viable repair.

I need that owners manual for Husqvarna 350BF leaf Blower

Written for chainsaws, works for blowers too (just looked).
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; please contact Husqvarna for single digit clarification
15 = week produced – March
00198 = 198th unit Husky produced that week

Mufflers on 350 chainsaws often tear out the threads in the cylinder. Please keep an eye on yours. At the first sign of trouble a visit to your local husky dealer might be a good idea, while the warranty is still active.

If you have more questions or need additional help please reply below and I will get back to you. Thank you for using FixYa and Good Luck. HTH
