An “OM, 455e Rancher, 455 Rancher, 460 Rancher, 2009-09, EN, FR, ES” Follows (may not be your saw):
http://weborder.husqvarna.com/order_static/doc/HOUS/HOUS2009/HOUS2009_1151382-49.pdf
An excerpt from page 38 of the above OM follows (forcing it may render it inoperative):
Adjustment of the oil pump
Adjustments are made by turning the screw using a screwdriver or combination spanner.
The machine is supplied from the factory with the screw set to position 2.
Turning the screw clockwise will reduce the oil flow and turning the screw anti-clockwise will increase the oil flow.
Recommended settings:
• Bar 13"-15": Position 1 (full CW)
• Bar 15"-18": Position 2 (center)
• Bar 18"-20": Position (full CCW)
These recommendations apply to Husqvarna’s chain oil, for other chain oils increase the oil flow by one step.
WARNING! The engine must be stopped when making adjustments.

All OMs and IPLs can be found here:

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 http://www.husqvarna.com/us/homeowner/support/customer-support/)
15 = week produced – March
00198 = 198th unit Husky produced that week

I have a rancher 455 and it's not suppling enough oil to the bar. Is there an adjustment for this?


The 455 has a 3 position adjustable oil pump, the adjuster screw is up under the crankcase, sprocket side, you need a flat blade screw driver.

No chain oil feed


not sure if the 455 rancher is the exact same as my rancher but when the oil feed on my saw seems slow i remove the chain and bar and clean the chain grove. pay special attention to the end that is near the motor there are a couple of places that allow the oil to flow from the saw body to the chain groove and then subsequently to the chain

Why is my husqvarna chainsaw not oiling?


Not wanting to be patronising, is there oil in it?
Ok, now sensible answer...
Have you cleaned it - remove the chainguard, chain and bar. Using compressed air, blow through the oil hole in the bar, and in the machine where it meets the bar and between the rails on both sides of the bar.
are you sure that it isn't oiling? rev the machine to maximum and hold the tip of the bar about 2 inches from a reflective surface for about 20 seconds. if you see a thin layer of oil, then the saw is actually oiling ok (huskies tend to run a bit dry but don't worry)
Try turning up the oil pump - turn the saw upside-down, behind the chaincatcher on the sump of the saw you shuld see a silver screw turn it anti-clockwise to increase the oil flow.
hope this helps.

Husqvarna 455 Rancher - oil coming out of muffler and not oiler. Just emptied gas and remixed new batch so that should not be issue. It was working fine until I took off chain cover to clean and got brake...


Re-clean the engine case and loose parts. Start the engine with the bar removed--oil should ooze out of the side port where the bar fits to, but nowhere else. Clean the bar drive end oil passages--especially the two small channels that go out to the chain groove on both sides. If you seem to be pumping excess oil out, there should be an oil volume adjustment screw either in the back case or just underneath the case near the lower run of chain. Turn the screw CW to lessen the volume of oil. Hope this helps!

455 rancher chainsaw does not pump oil to the chain


If you look under the machine by the chain you'll see a flat head screw (next to the sprocket) which controls the bar and chain oil flow . Try to turn the screw and check if there's any oil flow to the chain . If not you will need to replace the oil pump (part # 537 10 55-02 which will cost you about $35.00) Hope this help
