If this was started without oil in fuel, then the piston is likely scored, and the compression rings stuck in a smeared aluminum mess. You can remove the muffler and probably see the damage to the piston. It can probably be repaired though. Take it to a reputible shop, then read the owners manual and get some help to learn how to safely use and maintain your investment that you have in this saw.

Low gear


In that old a machine I suspect the grease and oil of the mechanism has gotten hard (waxy) and is causing the gear mechanism to stick. Most likely it simply needs to be taken apart, the old lubricant removed, and new grease and oil added.

I dont know where to put the oil


There are small holes what you find along the moving parts indicating that it is a oil lubricating point. You might just have to use a tiny drop to get the oil to move along the holes to the spindle bearing/bush blocks or within the mechanism. Do not attempt to use too much oil but only if the machine is too dry as seem with a good lighting.

Happy New Year.

Husqvarna 51 chainsaw will barely run, magnito and carberator ok


Probably need to re-adjust the carburetor jets. They are very small screws in the base of the carburetor. They will be labeled with an "H" and an "L" . Set the low speed first by turning it in slowly until the rpm drops slightly then start turning it outward untill the engine idles smoothly. At that point you can also adjust idle speed. Then you need to be careful here but you need to hold the throttle wide open at the same time adjusting the high speed jet. Turn it in until the rpm drops then slowly turn it out. The rpm will keep increasing. Once you get to a point where it is max'ed out then screw the jet back in one half a turn. Changes in altitude like using your chainsaw in town versus going to the mountains for firewood can sometimes make it necessary to adjust the fuel/air ratio.

Huskystar squeeks when sewing


They occasionally need oiling. You should have received a tube of oil when the machine was purchased. If you don't have any, try to find Tri Flow oil available at bicycle shops or Amazon.com. If you are unable to find it, you can use machine oil but not 3n1 oil. These are excellent machines and I still have mine. It may be well worth having it serviced at an authorized husqvarna viking dealer. You can locate a dealer near you by visiting the husqvarna viking website and clicking on the Dealer link on the left-hand side of the page - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com

Good luck.

My Husqvarna 142 chain saw, new out of the box, starts and runs well enough but left to idle it continually stalls. Any ideas?


The carb needs to be adjusted. Look for 2 adjustments label High(H) and Low(L). Low is the one that you want. Start you chainsaw and let it warm up and turn the L adjustment a until you are able to let it idle on its own. Hope this helps.
