When you say you have made all the adjustments, are you referring to the idle speed screw adjustments? If so, have you turned down the High idle adjusting screw? Sometimes these get stripped, and it doesn't end up doing the job it should.
One other thought: If you don't have spring tension on the throttle trigger in the handle, the linkage may have popped off inside. This is kind of a pain in the *** to fix, because there is a spring mechanism inside the trigger handle, and the linkage is a strong bent metal bar that winds its way into the motor and fits into a hole in the throttle assembly, but is not well shown on the parts diagram for the saw from Husky. If this is the case, I can go through the process with you on a followup.

What causes the Clutch drum gear that drive the chain to go bad ? my chain eats a groove all the way through it aftr about 12 hrs of cutting I have replaced it 3 times now.

The chain you should be using should be a .325 pitch and not a 3/8.

Never over tighten the chain, it will wear and stretch with time, which is why you should regularly check the chain tension. To get it right you should be able to lift 2 drive links clear of the bar. The chain will naturally wear groves into the spur sprocket, there is no conversion to a rim spricket for this model. Rim sprockets allow the chain to move along the sprocket easier and takes the wear away form the clutch drum.

My husqvarna chain saw will start fine and run good and cut good for a few minutes then it will start running fast then slow down run fast slow down it will do that 3 or 4 times then cut off any idea...

It certainly sounds fuel related, remove the fuel hose from the fuel tank and replace the filter on the end, try the machine again, if it is no better it could well be an issue with the fuel tank breather, to test this run the saw until the problem starts to occur, slacken the fuel cap enough to allow air into the tank, if the machine picks up and runs well you will need to replace the tank breather, let us know if this works and i will will go through how to change the breather.

I have a husqvarna 257 with a 20inch bar and having oiling problems, is getting hardly any to no oil and have the oil adjuster screw the whole ways out, is the oil plunger bad?

If you take the bar off, and then run the saw, does oil come out of the saw? If it does, then the oil pump is likely working O.K.

If the oil comes out of the saw and does not make it onto the chain, it is possible that the oil exit slot on the saw, and the hole on the bar are not lining up properly. This happened on my Husqvarna 141 saw. The oil was coming out of the saw fine, but it never made it to the bar and chain. As a consequence the chain was always dry and very, very hot.

The other saws we use, always have plenty of oil on the chain. I think Husqvarna may have made a design flaw on some of their saws, and the exit point of the saw and the entry to the bar are not properly aligned. I wonder how many saws this affects.

Husqvarna chain saw oiler problem

I fear you are correct about the oiler problem. I see a lot of oiler problems on these saws. Sooner or later Husky will have to address it. Ask the dealer about modifying your oiler; the 350 has an adjustable and might fit 1 or both of these saws. I think Husky needs to admit the nonadjustable is a mistake, and come up with a fix.

If you want to do some research start with the IPLs 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)
15 = week produced - March
00198 = 198th unit Husky produced that week
Please post back (below) with what happens at the dealer. Take your buddy and his saw with you! Good Luck. HTH
If Husky starts modifying all these with 350 oilers I want compensation...LOL

I have a Husqvarna 350 (1998). Just replaced cylinder and dismantled the saw for a complete wipe down. After reassembly, the saw runs great if I start with a squeezed throttle. Will not idle at all. Help!...

Kinda hard to hook up the throttle rod incorrectly. When you replaced the piston did you notice which way the arrow on the piston head pointed. It should point towards the exhaust. Also, you probably should have replaced the two crank seals just to be on the safe side. Sometimes, those little creatures can cause total agony and most guys do over look them.
