To re assemble the hand guard back onto the brake cover, place the hand guard as best you can onto the side cover, now use a conical punch to push throught the hand guard and cover, now useing the punch as a pivot pull the hand guard fully back until the brake loads, once loaded remove the puch, the hand guard should now easily align back onto the cover, insert the two puvot collers and re fit the allen screw.

Husky 435 chain brake is stuck in "locked" position with clutch cover off. How do I release the brake, so the cover will fit over the flywheel?


Hi, grab the cover in a vise in the same place the bar nuts tighten up to. Then pull the chainbrake lever back towards where the handle bar would normally be until it clicks and locks back. This will require a bit of force. Then refit the cover as normal. Hope this helps, regards Phil.

How doe the band on my chain break attach to my chainsaw mine is broken and i do not know how to install it. or how to get the clutch off so i can replace it


It can be a little tricky!

If you are referring to chain break band

Tools you will need:
1/2 Socket (to remove bar nuts)
T25(torq) or you can use a Flathead screw driver but is a little harder.

Remove 2 bar nuts,Clutch cover,bar,chain, 2 screws on black bar handle right behind clutch cover(this is needed because there is a hidden screw there for the chain break) You will need a new chain brake (my guess is that it is part # 530071893 aprox $15) but you will want to verify that with your model number.

You should see the chain break assembly, 3 - T25 screws are visible after the clutch cover is removed(note sometimes you have to clean saw dust to make screw head visible) the other T25 screw is hidden under the black bar handle. Once you remove all 4 screws on the chain brake you will be able to pull it off.

Installing the new one is the tricky part because if it is set(or break is on) you will have a hard time putting it on.One of the easiest ways is to focus on it near the muffler you will see that a metal 3 pronged gear fits into the plastic part of the chain break handle.and if the band is too tight to fit over the clutch drum you will have to carefully reset it by applying pressure onto the area that has the 3 pronged gear and chain break handle make sure that the handle is pushed forward all the way while you apply pressure then slowly pull chain break handle back till you hear a "snap" this resets the chain brake spring and the band should now fit over the clutch drum.Now, proceed with putting back together 4 chain brake assembly screws,2 handle screws,and bar,chain,clutch cover,and 2 bar nuts.

Please note it is important that you apply quite a bit of pressure onto chain break area where metal (3 pronged) gear fits into handle while resetting or when you reset it the metal part can cut into and damage the plastic piece in the chain break handle.

You can see a breakdown here: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Poulan-Parts/Chainsaw-Parts/Model-P4018WT/1324/1503220/P0506041/00002?blt=06&prst=0&shdMod=P4018WT

Hope this helps!

How to get the clutch off on a 142 husky


  1. Turn off the saw and release the chain brake. The chain brake is the plastic handle located on the topside of the saw's body, and is between the bar and the throttle. With a gloved hand, spin the chain to ensure the brake is off.
  2. Use the wrench to loosen the bar nuts until they are finger tight. Use the flathead screwdriver to loosen the bar tensioner screw. This screw is located in between the bar cover's two metal posts, and can be reached through the small, round hole in the cover's center.
  3. Finish loosening the bar nuts and remove the bar cover. Take off the bar and chain; set them aside in a safe place.
  4. Unplug the spark plug from the rubber spark plug connector, located on the top of the saw's body. Push some of the chainsaw's starter chord string into the spark plug cylinder to block the piston from moving while taking apart the clutch.
  5. Remove the clutch assembly with the clutch socket wrench. Husqvarna chainsaw clutches are left-locking nuts, so you will need to turn the bolt clockwise to loosen it. Tap on the socket's handle with a hammer if the bolt won't loosen.
  6. Remove the bolt and pull off the clutch cover, clutch spring and clutch drum. Replace these parts if they are chipped, warped or heavily worn.
  7. Follow these steps in reverse order to reassemble the clutch.

How do you re assembly brake handle poulan 2150


Hello Larsens;
A Poulan "2150 Predator Gas Type 6" IPL follows (may not be your saw)(the LE suffix is a Wood Shark) http://www.ordertree.com/modelinfo/PWE/2150-Predator-Gas-Saw-Type-6/75.2150-Predator-Gas-Saw-Type-6.1.59.1.html
There is no breakdown, they want you to order a new cover $20±. The cover appears on different print names with different models (Handle & External Assembly) above.
Poulan.com (all)
http://www.ordertree.com/modelinfo/POULAN-WEED-EATER/75.59.html
The dash number of your serial number is the type.

Do you have a friend with a cover you can look at? The brake will need to be lached open (enlarged) to refit the clutch cover on your saw.

Detail A here is a good representation of a Husky chain brake, they are all similar and this may be helpful.

If your saw is indeed a Husky there is likely an illustration of the chain brake on the IPL here:

Enter the 3 digit model number (no XPs, Es, just the numbers)
Serial number decode – for use with IPL

06 = year produced – 2006 (single digit before 2000)

I don't think this has the detail you need.
If it were me I'd visit my friendly neighborhood Husky chainsaw seller (not Big Box Store) and ask to look at the clutch cover with the brake installed (take a camera). I'd probably ask for a quote for their repair too. HTH
Lou
Your model is no longer sold. The seller will know what model replaced it and may be willing to explain the repair procedure for your saw you. Take the cover and loose parts with you.

CHAINSAW BRAKE LOCKED ON HUSQVARNA 455 RANCHER HELP PLEASE?


I used applman08's solution. A few pointers:
0. This problem occurs when you take off the side cover while the brake is set. So after you fix this, don't do that again.
1. When removing the clutch, place the screwdriver in the notch next to where it says "off" and tilt the screwdriver down so that when you strike it you are applying a clockwise shock force that is almost horizontal (assuming your 455 is on its side).
2. DO NOT remove the spring! There is a plastic housing that basically holds the brake mechanism in place (secured by 4 screws). If you take that apart, and then take out the spring, you will be learning how the brake works and spending some time compressing that spring and getting it back in. You'll have to come up with something clever to get the spring in depending on tools available.
3. Going back to 1. - get that clutch off, put the side cover back on, getting that brake lever lined up with the very-difficult-to-grab three-toothed mechanism for engaging the spring. Tighten down the side cover, or hold it snug with one hand while you lever the brake handle with the other. You will hear a satisfying snap as the braking mechanism (with the spring I told you not to mess with) resets.
Note: You can probably reset the braking mechanism by manually turning that three toothed gizmo but it's really hard to grab and the brake handle fits it perfectly. The key is you've got to turn that about 60 degrees.
Good luck, this was an annoying problem.

Reset chainsaw brake on a husqvarna 455 rancher


You removed the cover while the chain brake was in the locked position.  The plier method will be a pain in the ***, as you cannot get enough leverage to twist lock or spread the spring.   I've accidently done this myself and found a much easier way to solve the problem.  Just remove the chain brake handle by unscrewing 2 screws.  Stick the cover and the handle together as they would if it was correctly assembled and twist.  You should be able to unlock the chain brake and it will now slide right on.
