Run it like you would normally, WOT through normal-size cuts. Just give it 20-30 sec warm-up at part-throttle first, and give it frequent cool-down breaks @ idle/fast-idle between cuts. When finished, give it ~30 sec @ fast-idle for cool-down. For the first few tankfuls, give it a bit more oil, like maybe 40:1 fuel:oil ratio. Make sure the carb is properly adjusted- too lean will torch the piston. Full bore operation is what will break it in.

The factory usually recommends 2-3 tanks of fuel going easy on the saw and not running at full throttle.......but I have never done this on any of my saws and I don;t know anyone who has and my saws are all still running great.

Trying to find the correct compression for a Husqvarna 455 Rancher chainsaw?


you wont... as per husky anything under 110 would be suspicious. I have seen those saws with the lower piston ring gummed up from a rich fuel mixture.

I have a new 455 rancher chainsaw husky 20inch bar chain keeps coming off new chain


You may have a bent bar, or you could be putting the chain on a little too loose. Perhaps the chain is not getting lube ?
Possible that the chain tentssioner and or adjustment is loosening up as you are using the unit. Other than that maybe a defective new blade ?

My 455 rancher bogs down when i give it gas it's not even under a load new plug air filter, fuel filter, made carb adjustments like manual said running 93 octane gas.it,s still bogging


Make sure the chain break is releasing all the way. When the saw is not running release the chain break and make sure you can move the chain back and forth by hand. If you can there is a small fuel filter in the gas tank that should be replaced. Make sure the fuel lines are not spongy because they could collasp when the engine is running starving the carburetor for fuel.

What is the longest bar i can go on my 455 rancher saw ?


Available power and the amount of oil may both be a limiting factors. Your oiler has a 3 position adjustment (as do most intermediate level Huskies) with 20" being the longest recommended. My 359 is virtually the same and I run a 24" Carlton bar on mine with no problem. If you opt for a longer bar let the saw determine cutting speed. Come on over, my bar and chain will fit your saw, try it before you buy it. If you have an acquaintance with a 24" small mount Husky bar that is probably a good idea. I would likely not recommend a 24" bar if regularly cutting Oak or a hard wood, I do a lot of Fir.

How to disengage or fix chain break on husqvarna 455 Rancher ?, cant get cover off to change blade. Pulling or pushing on the handle , no results .


It sounds as though you have tried resetting the brake to no avail. If I were you any Monday through Friday at 1300 - 1500 I would be in my local Husky dealer (not Lowes). Someone familiar with the saw that can see and touch it. I suspect you will need parts once the problem is isolated, order them there and the diagnosis will probably be gratis. Factor in the shipping and handling fee and most dealer prices are competitive.

If you have more questions or need additional help please reply below and I will get back to you. Good Luck. HTH

Will not fire bought new coil and still plug will not spark tried disconnecting kill switch still does not work do you think I have a bad new coil? If so will husqvarna make this up cause the hardware...


Is this you?
http://www.fixya.com/support/t3950480-no_spark_changed_ignltion_modual_no
If all this has been done it must be the flywheel or the ignition unit. I might try the local Husky dealer just to maintain my sanity. He can swap the ignition unit into a known good saw in a couple of minutes and verify good or bad. He might even be willing to honor the Husky warranty on a bad coil. Please reply with the outcome.

455 rancher chainsaw does not pump oil to the chain


If you look under the machine by the chain you'll see a flat head screw (next to the sprocket) which controls the bar and chain oil flow . Try to turn the screw and check if there's any oil flow to the chain . If not you will need to replace the oil pump (part # 537 10 55-02 which will cost you about $35.00) Hope this help
