Follow up for resource info.
Clutch O.D. for 55 rancher matches this series of Poulans.

Ordered two bands from china.  Will report back once installed.

Nice please do update on this. This will be good to know for others too.

Look like this ? http://www.treestuff.com/store/catalog.asp?item=16566





My two brake bands arrived a little bit ago.  Compared to broken original, check.

Installed it, perfect fit.  Works fine.

I would like to also add that this brake was mostly never used.

Wear must occur from thermo plastic shift, aka warpage, to cause the band to rub clutch drum in normal use.

I wonder what weight penalty a magnesium cover would have added to these saws?

There is a thread here now comparing the weight of the plastic one with plastic handle and the mag one with metal handle.  Was a pretty big difference.

Out of 3 covers with chain brake I got in. 1 good to go, 1 broken band, 1 missing band.

broken band one fixed.



Had to use a left hand drill bit on the one missing band to remove fastener. EZout wouldn't grab to remove either.
