The scabbard is marked in 2 in. increments to be cut anywhere between 12 in. to 20 in. L so its ideal for smaller saws too. The scabbard protects the chainsaw`s bar and chain from dirt and debris during storage and transportation.

When engaged, the chain brake stops the chain from rotating around the saw`s guide bar. When using a chainsaw, you should always start it with the chain brake engaged so the chain does not move.
Look to see if the clutch linkage is loose or out of adjustment. Check the connections to the clutch fork to make sure that the clutch linkage is tight. Step 2: Check the clutch linkage at the clutch pedal. Make sure that the pin and cotter pin are in place.
There could be a leak on the slave cylinder causing the slave cylinder not to operate. Also, check the pin to the clutch pedal and make sure that it is hooked up to the clutch master cylinder. Check the lines and make sure that they are not cross threaded, which will not seal and cause a leak.

I am assembling the chain saw that I bought online. There was some difficulty in taking off the clutch cover. Before I did that, I had disengaged the chain brake. Now I find that I cannot put the cover back on because the chain brake seems to be activated, and the brake is too small to get it around the ring to remount the cover. I cannot move the brake one way or the other to activate the spring-loaded mechanism. Do you have a solution?

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.

How do I get the brake band ,located inside the chain cover, assembled back onto the chain saw. clutch assembly. The band brake diameter seems too small to fit around the clutch housing.
ANSWER : You need to load the brake, clamp it in a vice, be carefull not to damage the cover, if the hand gaurd is connected to the brake pull it fully back until the locks off, this may take a fair amount of force as it is compressing a large spring, if the hand guard is on the machine, remove it and use this as a tool to load the brake, the only other way is to remoce the clutch and sprocket, now refit the brake onto the saw, now pull the hand guard fully back to load the brake.

I remove the chain brake and bar cover from my 51/55 Husquarna saw and cannot get the cover back on the saw. The brake band is to tight to fit over the clutch assembley and I cannot figure out how to get to reinstall without removingftheband.
ANSWER : Hi, the chain brake has most likely been activated while removing the cover. Place the cover in a vise where the bar nuts tighten up to and pull the chain brake lever backwards towards where the handle bar would be. It should click back and stay back. Hope this helps, regards Phil.
