Check for plugged fuel filter and muffler. Check the fuel lines for decay or damage. Did you service the carburetor? Make sure the lower chamber diaphragm is not hard or cracked. Did you change the two jet settings? Put some fuel mix into the plug hole and pull it through--you should get a pop or two. If ok, then concentrate on the fuel problem. If no spark at the plug, check the ignition module gap to the flywheel magnets using a thin business card for a gauge. Hope this helps!

First thing you need to check is the cylinder.Take the spark plug ouy.use a flashlight and look down the hole towards the muffler side.If its scratched up afraid the motor is shot and will need to be rebuilt.If its not scratched up let me know on here.Then I will give you more things to check.

You may need to use a jumper wire between the threaded part of the plug and the cooling fins. You do not have to bend up the electrode.

Ignition module gap
Place a business or index card between the fly wheel and coil, rotate until the magnetic attraction pulls everything tight together. Tighten the coil screws, rotate the flywheel until the attraction eases and remove the card. Ensure nothing contacts when flywheel is rotated.

Husky 455 dies out at full throttle or under load


Your carb may be the issue but your ignition coil could be the culprit. Once they start going bad, they can act up intermittently or give various symptoms from day to day. The fact that your saw dies at full load or under load, probably means that when your saw gets hot or requires more spark, your coil is not able to provide it. Your carb is easy enough to clean out, you can take it all apart and clean all screens, etc....

I just replaced my coil due to the exact same symptoms and now my saw runs great. $60 off ebay and you can put it on in 15 minutes yourself. Check your carb first though
