husqvarna 262xp problem
« on: August 21, 2013, 04:48:52 pm »
Hi after a few pointers please, got problem with my husky 262xp when starting the chain is rotated and when running the chain keeps turning. I had a look and noticed the clutch was **** so thought must be the problem, so replaced put back together but still got the same problem any ideas please ? Cheers

Have you tuned the carb? Setting L and I

Check for  air leak somewhere if carb is tuned right?

Something is wrong with the clutch?

You should be able to pull the chain around the bar without it turning the engine over?

When you pull on the starter rope the drum or bell of the clutch should not move!

I was thinking  chain turning idling etc. OK down another road of thought then.

Does the clutch drum turn freely by hand?

3 quick things........ Is there any kind of build-up or debri on the inside of the clutch drum?..........Is the bearing or race for the drum moving freely?.......Where there any washers/spacers maybe worn-out,not installed correctly or missing within the clutch/drum assembly?..... All 3 have given me problems at one time or another on any given saw and all with a similar problem as you are describing....

Is it a later with sprocket powered oiler? If so make sure you got it correctly put together.
Do you have correct/identical parts? Often the drum or clutch is not correct.
