Replace sprocket on rancher 460


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.

Chain brake locked


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!

On the 460 rancher does the chain oil tank have a breather pipie? and how easy is it to replace all the pipes. as it seems to block up untill i open the tank and air gets in


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

Husq 455 rancher chain saw. the chain locking spring in the cover is in the lock position and will not mount on the saw. how do i release the spring tension?


you should be able to release it with a flat screwdriver. you should see something that looks like a wheel where the chain brake locks to the brake handle when you put the cover back on. you should be able to twist that wheel and unlock it that way.

Cutting a log with 455 rancher chain locked up took cover off replaced chain ,chain spins with cover off put cover on chain is locked up again husqvarna


It sounds like the chain is too tight. Loosen up the tension on the chain by turning the tensioning screw located on the end of the saw where the bar goes out.

Cutting with 455 rancher chain locked up took cover off ,replaced chain and put cover on still locked up


Husqvarna - IPL, 455 Rancher/ 460, 2006-02, Chain Saw (example - may not be your saw):
http://weborder.husqvarna.com/order_static/doc/usa/2006/I06000/I0601076.pdf
See Detail A, pn 503 89 08-02. You can use a Crescent Wrench on one of the ears (left end) to reset it. With the cover positioned with pn 503 89 08-02 in the upper left rotate it CW until it nests, to reset it.

This works quite well:
Reset Chain Brake by Dolfoff
Please follow this link, http://www.fixya.com/support/t3102817-re_install_side_cover_after_chain
Cursor down to “Best Solution”, while there click the “Was this helpful? [Yes]” button
If you do not have a vise a large C clamp to a work surface might work, you may still need a block or two of wood.

You can download the IPL for you saw here:
HusqvarnaUSA.com
http://www.husqvarna.com/us/homeowner/support/download-manuals/
Enter the 3 digit model number (no XPs, Es, just the numbers)
Serial number decode – useful when downloading IPLs and Manuals
06 1500198
06 = year produced – 2006 (single digit before 2000)
15 = week produced - March
00198 = 198th unit Husky produced that week

I will wager you will NEVER again remove the cover with the brake set. Me either! Good Luck. HTH
