Thank you for all of the helpful advice gentlemen! Wasted the whole afternoon and I wasnt happy camper least bit. Must have cursed  every bad word in the dictionary 100 times, neighbor was scratching his head wondering what I was soo mad about and wouldn't come over period, That c clip popped off and that put me into another realm of pissing and moaning. Home Depo got $ .25 cents out of me for another one and reinstalled the c clip but still couldn't figure out the spring thing a miggy to save my ass...

I think I might be able to manage it now... Great help and advise here. I'll be back for more stupid questions looking for a fix so stay tuned. This 455 Rancher has been the best investment I have ever made. Always starts 1st or 2nd pull, reliable, damn good saw. Bought it at Tractoir Supply and then bought another new one off Craigslist for $ 200.00 NIB and have never used it. I always buy 2 of everything cause I'm a little rough on my tools but this 455 Rancher I cant seem to tear it up....

I like the 455 also and have 2 myself.

I found for me if just the brake is on when cover is off. To reset I just pull clutch and clutch drum off. Put cover back on saw and reset brake band. Then pull cover back off put  clutch and drum back on.

That would take a little more time but would work even better.

Surely it will work, but my method from 2003 sounds like the fastest one, once you have it figured out.

There are still several roads that lead to Rome though!  ;)

 ;D It was figuring out how to do it that took a few beers, not actually doing it!

Also it was a hot summer day, and those beers were far from the first ones that day - so my brain may not have worked very fast.....

Some of my best Redneck ideas are thought  up after more then a few beers.
