The chain may have the procedure but the driver plate is worn out - what happens when you are not attached to the chain lubrication oil lubrication channels or if the chain is about or when the pump is not working.

Take off the clutch cover and make sure the area isn't gummed up preventing the brake from disengaging. Generally the brake consists of metal strap that goes around the clutch and is tightened when the brake bar is pushed forward. The tensioning is adjusted through a spring mechanism and it may need to be loosened as well. Hope this helps!

Check fuel tank breather valve. Leaking valve can cause saws to barble at full revs.

The factory do not offer a rim sprocket for the 455/460, they are classed as semi pro saws and as such get a spur sprocket, there may be an Oregon after market one available.

If you have run out of adjustment there are a number of reasons, wrong drive link count of the chain ( too long ). The chain has stretched due to the machine not oiling correctly, or the tentioner has stripped the thread and is not moving forwaed.

There are very few things that can stop the piston coming to top dead centre, the big end has gone, the connecting rod has broken, or somebody has fitted the wrong piston.

I have had to change a few fuel tank breathers on the 455 and 460 saws, when it starts to die try to slacken off the fuel filler cap, if it picks up again it is a brather issue, the breather is under the starter cover at the top right hand corner.

Not enough oil getting to the chain, check the oil flow, hold the tip of the bar close to a tree stump rev the saw, you should see a good line of oil on the stump srayed from the end of the bar, if not the machine is not oiling, drain the oil tank, fill with a suitable cleaning fluid, give it a good rinse out, and try again.

The breather sits in the bar pad, it is a sintered plug that covers a duck bill valle, you would need to screw a self tapper into the plug so as to pull it out, this will of course desroy the breather and would need replacing

Hi Chris,
Check the air filter is clean and the choke plate is working ok.
Ensure the chain is sharp.
Check the chain isn't damaged and dragging in the guide bar.
A blocked muffler/silencer can cause loss of power.
Try screwing the "H" mixture adjustment screw in with the engine running at full power to reduce the richness of the mixture. Do this 1/4 turn at a time. Ensure you count the number of turns so you can get back to where you started.

It sounds like your chain is just dull.Or might not be sharpened right.This usually happens when the chain is getting dull.

Husqvarna 20"... | Answered on Mar 09, 2011

The normal reason for a saw to cut to the left, or right is because the cutters have been sharpened more on side than the other, they are now longer on one side, this then sends the cut off to that side. Measure the cutter lenghts, take the correct file and shorten the longer cutters
