Re: Husqvarna 445e....Piston ring Repair advice.

Thanks Cut4fun
I am in the UK. 
I asked at a local husqvarna  dealer about the ring, and he quoted 10 pounds. I know that I can get it cheaper on the web, but I am assuming that it is a genuine husqvarna part, so might be my best option.
Kroi sounds good stuff, but haven't been able to find anywhere in the UK that stokes it for a reasonable price.

You mentioned Berrymans B12 reminded me that I had some carb cleaner in the garage that I bought last year, so I thought that I would give that a go.  So now I am soaking it in that.

I have noticed that one end of the ring has lifted a little bit, almost to the position that I might be able to get my nail under it  I am trying to be gentle, because I dont want to damage anything, especially the piston.
I am not so bothered about damaging the ring because I can easily replace that, but I want to try and avoid any damage to the piston.

I will continue tapping and soaking for a few more days, just in case it does free up.

Thanks again
