It may well be the drum bearing, if this is dry it will sqeek, you can grease this bearing through the end of the crank without removing the clutch, this bearing rotates on the crank if the saw is idling, it is not good to leave the machine idling for any lenght of time,it is always better to switch the machine off whilst moving logs ready for cutting, there is no sealing on the bearing so the grease is quickly lost, when the saw is cuttin the bearing is not in use as the drum rotates with the crank.

Accelerator squeeking and internal crunching

Acc. squeek noise due to linkage issue, get it lubicated.

Regarding the clutch, you check the links, clutch plate springs condition. If there is wornout parts get it replaced. Gear shifting will be solved once you fix your clutch problems.

My Husquvarna Model 61 coils are not working I need a new coil where will i get an old chainsaw for spare parts for my machine now? I am in Sydney, Australia

check and search on E Bay mate, search for "Chainsawa' and "husquvarna", you should be able to pick up something cheap, also the coil from other Husquvarna models may fit, example, a 36 model coil, may fit a 61. A new coil is available from any mower and chainsaw shop, cost about $80.

The squeaking would have either been caused by the clutch release bearing or the pilot bearing in the crankshaft if it has one (pilot bearing). It doesn't really matter as the transmission has to come of to repair either of these. It is hard to tell what you were describing, but whatever you do, don't spray any more WD 40 at anything! It will ruin your clutch and clutch fluid if it comes in contact with either. If the clutch fluid reservoir gets low, only use new brake fluid to top it up.

Squeeking noise when i start the engine, with the engine cold

Probably serpentine belt to loose.
It is common. Have it checked.
Also can be water or oil getting on belt and it starts slippering and makes the noise.

In the rinse cycle the washer is making a squeeking noise

check whether there is something inside the washing drum ..

by mistake some thing might have fallen inside..

else the bearings would have worn out making the squeeking noise..
