Re: 562 Xp auto tune

One of the viewers asked a question about clearance between the transfer caps and the cases when either cutting the cylinder bases or building w/o base gasket. On mine, the flywheel side rear most corner of the transfer cap just about hits the cases. I can just get a "leaf" from a feeler gage through. On another set of cases I have it actually appears there is a wear spot EVEN though it had a base gasket therefore would need to be relieved. Is this typical? And since this would most likely effect how the transfers case to cylinder intersect... is this a potential problem and a possible reason why some are lean???

The one I cut the other day had this problem.it had to be clearances a lot to sit down flat. The case was also A tiny bit off from each half. I don't think it would have sealed gasketless.

I got just damn lucky on the one I built, going to pull it apart and measure the clearances anyway. I used a torch tip cleaner to "saw" from the back side through to the front to make certain. Actually the clutch side was fine, just the fly wheel side really close. Goo gasket has held to this point...a tank of gas! But going to yank it apart anyway.

husqvarna 562 problems

Guy working on a 562 shared this at the chainsaw repair FB group I do too.

Said he has been working on saws for 20 years at the shop. Never seen this before.

Derf on 562 carbs etc =  There was some evidence of SOME saws having problems related to heat soak causing fuel vaporization and improper metering, mostly evidences as stumbling, and bogging, difficulty starting, especially after the saw was ran recently and is still hot.
Husqvarna upgraded the el44 carb to an el46 to address the problem, though there was still SOME continuing evidence that the problem persisted.
Then Husqvarna updated the top cover with a cutout (which your saw has) under warranty, and updated the carb again in 2016 to the el48. At that point most of the problems with the 562xp hot-start/bogging disappeared.
If you haven't experienced any of these symptoms, your saw is probably fine. Having an older carb doesn't mean it's a bad saw. But some buyers are choosy about what they buy.

Wow broke that rod clean and then jammed into the cylinder like that.   That is pretty wild.

At least nothing came out of the saw and into the operator. Really got into those 562's. More going on than typically see on line with clearances though. Have to laugh when I go back and read some of the postings and issues, especially those with mods & an air leak to the transfers. Building my "Ultimate Old Man Saw" with a 555/562 blend HTSS style along with the new narrow kerf concept & light weight bar from Oregon, a Sugi will fill in until the stuff I want shows up  :)

Does it have the upgraded top cover with the extra hole for cooling? I know my 2016 550 was the first year for that upgrade.
My 2012 562 is still running strong with no issues other then hot start problems in 90 heat.
