I learned another way that was super easy for me. On a 455 a brake band was engaged on clutch cover. 
I just removed clutch and drum off saw.
 Mounted cover back onto saw and worked brake handle to open brake band back up. Only about 5mins for me this way. Then remove cover, reinstall drum and clutch.

Share your ideas too ;)

Chain brakes can be a monumental pain in the buttocks .Wait until you get one completely apart some time .Worse yet some Stihls ,even the same model used different cam actions and they don't interchange either .Oh yeah I've fought em too .

I hear ya Al. The hardest brake mechanism i have put back together was a dolmar 7900. It took 3 men and a small child to pull that spring back. :o

Myself being not used to the captive sprocket cover nuts on my 562XP, alot of times I accidently trip the chain brake as I pull the cover off.
I just press the side cover back against the chain brake lever "catch" and pull the lever back and forth until it hooks up and opens up the brake band.

As matter of fact a Dolmar painted blue about gave me fits also .Makita whatever it was that my neighbor spit a rod bearing up through the cylinder .I did one of my half-fast fixes on it and actually it runs like a top .I thought I'd never get the flippen  spring installed though .

Then there was the bones of an 042 Stihl I got from good ole Fred AKA Stihl boy .I only bought it to get the chain break .Good old Stihl as usual had changed the parts from what I had but I got any way .Those pot lickers never could make up their minds how they wanted to do things . Pshaw and I thought McCulloch was bad about that .

Ya know the more I think about it I think it's an international conspiracey to drive saw owners nuts .--it's working ---

And THANKS...to ALL responses.!!!  I tried meagerly to turn the three armed what-cha-ma-callit, but it seemed determined to stay in the position it was currently occupying.!!! i LOVE THE VIDEOS....too cool.!!!  Glad I found this forum.!!!!!  I will give that a try.!!!!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Some beers, some "brain-smoke" and some brute force fixed it for me the first time this happened - and I never repeated the mistake, so I have forgot the details.... ;D

I once bought a relatively new Husqvarna that this had happened to the owner. He took pliers and cut the brake band off at the connector ends.

I replaced the brake band and re-installed the big spring. It was not easy but I eventually figured it out. You would never know it today.

I bought the saw cheap because of the problem and the repair was rather cheap on the pocket book, but hard on the brain. The chainsaw turned out nice.

 Here is a homemade resetting tool made from a scrench.  Guy on the CR group shared his pic helping a guy out.
