Question about Husqvarna , No.455 Rancher, 20" Gas - Powered Chainsaw
These are related. On your saw the oiler only supplies oil when the clutch turns, and I am going to ignore the oil problem. If it does not oil after clutch replacement please post back. The oil pump is inboard behind the clutch Please inspect it and the worm gear before reassembly.
A link to an "IPL, 455 Rancher, 455 e, 460, 2009-10, Chain Saw" follows (may not be your saw):
The clutch face is on item 1. Inspect the drum (item 3) for glazing. If extreme it may require replacement too. There is also a bearing (item 4) that might effect both problems I suggest you replace it as part of the clutch repair. These parts may be available at your local Husky dealer, if so it will save time and shipping cost. Showing him your parts might be a good idea too.
This is helpful with clutch removal.

Probably, the interior of the clutch was soaked with oil. Try washing it out with spray carburetor cleaner by removing the cover, chain, and bar. Unless the clutch surfaces were burned from any slipping that occurred, that should restore the clutch. When reassembling, make sure you can move the tightened chain by hand. Check for proper oiling, by running the bar tip at speed in front of a piece of cardboard for several moments-- it should throw off a thin line of oil. Hope this helps!
