Re: Husky side cover will not go back on....

I have personally been through the steps of that last video.

I just went ahead and installed the final spring cover before resetting the over-center mechanism. 

I also put the whole chain cover in a padded vice to install the spring and to re-set the over center mechanism.

The spring has to have something partially down through its center at installation or it will buckle and jump out of the slot.

Often when someone forces a chain cover off with the brake engaged, they distort the brake band and it will not seat in the pocket area anymore.
This will require replacement of the band which is not very expensive but the labor technique is generally not easy as has been described.
We should share what we know... someone may learn...
That knowledge can live after us... and that "Pays It Forward".
Be all that you can be . . .
