Husqvarna Craftsman 36cc, 16 In. Gas Chain Saw - Page 6 - Answered Questions & Fixed issues

First off, take off the bar and chain, clean up the grooves and the small oiling holes in the bar. Then without the bar on, start the saw, see if oil comes out of the oiling hole, if not, dump the oil out of the saw, put some gas in, rinse out well, spray brake cleaner works well, too. Refill with oil and see if its oiling yet, make sure to check if it has an adjustable oiler, open it up a bit if need be. Use only bar and chain oil, not car oil!

If the muffler is clogged or damaged there will be too much back pressure for the engin to run. Check for free flow. Also, check the intake air filter to make sure it is clean so there is amaple air flow. Lastly, is there a safety shutoff related to the muffler that is being activated impropperly?

If you had this apart, a few things may have happened. First the linkage from carb to throttle trigger maybe jammed between plastic housing or linkage may have come apart and throttle is in the full open position. You'll have to take this apart again and follow the linkage between carb and throttle trigger to ensure all is connected and moving freely and properly. Use care when putting housing back together.

My guess is the tube has come loose inside.

It's your ignition, which you can take that stuff apart on the left hand side of the saw under the recoil. I have 2 of these, & you can get the parts. Maybe its just the magneto gap adjustment, which is like a business card or newspaper width gap. I would check that first. Hope this helps you, Rick

Remove muffler and inspect piston, rings, and cylinder through the exhaust port. If any vertical scoring is visible you may need a top end rebuild, if not may be dirty fuel filter, cracked fuel line etc.

This happens for two reasons. First of all, take off the chain and the bar and clean it all up as saw dust may be the culprit. The other reason is that some chain oils are too thick. you can thin it down a little bit by adding a little kerosene or gasoline.

On my 724 I adjusted the cable below the lever on the left side,just loosen the 2 nuts and bring the cable either up or down ,cant remember, I had to fool with it a bit to get where I wanted it, have the blower running and in neutral while adjusting and keep trying her in forward and reverse at full throttle to see after you adjust it, I found that if shes faster in reverse when adjusted she slowed down a bit in forward but keep playing with adjustment till I got it where I wanted it, you have to slow it down going and blowing a lot of snow anyway so didnt mind it a little slower in forward but nice to have it faster in reverse

Your carb seems to be flooding. You might want to adjust the carb inflow line.
