How to reassemble chain brake on an Echo CS-350T that jammed and was pulled apart by someone else?


From what I see you will need assemble thing leaving the main spring and brake cover off. Before attempting to put the main back in install a clutch drum inside the brake band. Then you slip on the main spring and pry the end on with a flat blade screw driver. Now install in the cover for the spring and brake. Reset the chain brake and remove the drum.

Now install the chain brake on the saw and test. Do not trip the chain brake without the clutch drum in place. If these are anything like the Husqvarna version after they get worn they will get where it is nearly impossible to reset.

Replacing brake band on Husqvarna 357/359/340/345/350/346/445 and many others


Before attempting to repair any chain brake, eye protection should always be worn, these machines all have an out board chain brake, known as a knee link brake due to its actuating mechanism, start by makeing sure the brake is off, by pulling the brake handle fully back to the top handle, now remove the bar securing nuts, remove the brake/side cover, the hand guard stays with the saw, so the cover is quite difficult to hold when removing the spring, so take two 8 mm bolts, clamp the hex heads in a vice, spacing them out the same as the fixing holes in the brake, now fit the brake /cover band up onto the up standing bolts, use the two bar nuts to secure the brake to the bolts, now insert special tool part no. 502522202 into the actuating quadrant and turn to activate the brake ( this will remove much of the spring tention ) if you do not have the tool you can remove the hand guard from the saw and use that, or a sturdy pair of long nose pliers, now remove the cross head screws from the spring cover, edge the back of the spring up enough to insert a suitable screw driver into the end, lever the spring up and onto the screw driver shaft ( this will stop it flying out ) remove the c clip securing the actuating quadrant to the brake cover, gently lever out the roll pin in the anchor end of the band, the band will now lift out of the cover, remove the single cross head screw securing the knee link mechanism to the band. Refit the new band into the knee link and re fit the screw, re fit the quadrant onto the post in the cover and re fit the e clip, press the anchor end of the band back into the cover, insert the spring back onto the knee link spigot, compress the spring and push it back into the cover, the best way to compress the spring is to use a good pair of long nose pliers, push the closed jaws into the end of the spring ( this will stop the spring flying out ) now push the pliers in to compress the spring against the knee link, and back into the cover, refit the spring cover screws, you now need to load the brake before it can be put back onto the saw, use the special tool, or the removed hand guard to do this, it will take a fair amount of force to re load the brake, once loaded re fit to the saw.

Chain saw brake on husquvarna model 41


To replace the brake band do as follows, remove the bar nuts and take the brake away from the saw, engae the brake to remove as much tention off the internall spring by pushing the hand guard fully forward, remove the allen screw securing the hand guard, do not remove the e clip and pin from the hand guard, tap out the pivot collers and remove the hand guard, remove the cross head screws securing the spring cover, carefully remove the spring from under neath, tap out the silver pivot pin from the knee link activating arm, use a puch from the other side of the brake to remove the roll pin securing the other end of the band, with the band out remove the screw securing the band to the knee link, install the knee link to a new brake band, re fit the roll pin in the band and re fit into the cover, insert the spring, this will have to be compressed to get it back in, re fit the spring cover, you need now to load the brake, fit the hand guard onto the cover, insert a conical puch through the hand guard and cover to enable you to pivot the hand guard back and load the brake, now fit the hand guard properly onto the cover and re fit the collors and screws.

Took chain brake off 2250 how do i get it back on think i need new chain brake how much spring will not go over clutch


It sounds like the brale has actuated, and the band is now smaller that the drum, you need to carefully place it in a vice ( be careful not to damage the cover ) pull the hand guard firmly back until it clicks and the brake is off, it should now fit back over the drum.

I can't get the cover back on after I fixed the tension on the chain. There is a metal ring and it no longer seems to fit.


take your time with this step! The steel band is part of the brake for the saw. You will need to take very special care and take your time when putting it back together.
The trick is in the braking lever. you will need to pull back on the braking lever, align the steel band over the steel drum, and and align the two contact points that will connect the steel band to the braking lever. After it is in place actuate the lever to see if it is working correctly. This function should cause the chain to stop moving and move when the brake is released. Where strong rawhide gloves to protect yourself from the chain. Good-luck.

The bar and gear cover will not go back on. The


The metal band is the chain brake . It must be compressed so you need to move the brake handle forward.

I have a poulan 18" chain saw. The safety band that goes around the clutch came off. Need info on how to put it back on


You don't list your model; There are probably over 100 to choose from. Find your model here:

Open the IPL. find the "Handle,Chasis and Bar Assembly" or similar page. That is the only drawing showing the chain brake parts. If you aren't able to repair it using that your options are to find your friendly neighborhood chainsaw shop or a new saw. HTH

Is it possible to adjust the chain break & how to do it.


hate to say this,but,there is no way to adjust the tension on the brake band.either the spring is weak or the brake band is broken.either can be changed but it's not easy.spring is under a lot of tension and can fly out when taking it apart or installing,you can get the entire cover as a unit if so desired...hope this helps,let me know
