    SPECIAL FUNCTIONAL COMPONENTS X-Torq ® This engine technology was introduced with its predecessor K750 under the name Dual Charge, now renamed to X-Torq. In addition to the intake from the carbu- rettor with fuel/air mix there are two chan- nels for intake of fresh air; the upper chan- nels as shown in the illustration.

  • Page 6: Dismantling Into Basic Modules

    DISMANTLING INTO BASIC MODULES Basic modules This chapter shows how the machine is built up of basic modules, for example, the starter, carburettor, air filter system, etc. The purpose is to illustrate how you can easily and effectively dismantle and assemble the machine in its basic modules.

    STARTER Replacing the starter cord Dismantle the starter. Eliminate the spring force from the return spring 1. Pull out the starter cord approximately 12 in./30 cm. Hold the starter pulley with your thumb and place the cord in the cut-out on the starter pulley. 2.
  • Page 11 STARTER Starter pulley First eliminate the spring force as per the previous page. Remove the centre screw and lift off the starter pulley. Clean the surfaces between the starter pulley and the spring cassette. Assembly Lubricate the hub with grease (arrows). Preferably also apply some grease around the starter pulley hub so that the grease seals against the spring cassette.
  • Page 12 STARTER Starter pawls Function In principle the starter pawls have two positions that are determined by the centrifugal force generated by the rotation of the flywheel. When the engine is at a standstill the springs push the starter pawls towards the centre, which when starting then grip the starter pulley's metal sleeve.

    It is insensitive to moisture and dirt. The design is point such that the ignition point does not need to readjustment. Husqvarna K760 has integrated overspeed protection in the electronic unit that limits the engine's speed to 9,300 rpm. The ignition system consists of the primary coil (A) and 3�...

  • Page 18: Air Filter

    AIR FILTER Function Husqvarna Active Air Filtration is a filter system that sig- nificantly improves the K760 model. The improved centrifugal cleaning has now made the previous plastic foam filter obsolete. 1. The centrifugal cleaning is the first step in the air clea- ning of the inlet air.

Test the non return valve by first blowing in the direction towards the tank. The air should pass without a build up of pressure.

The pressure tester is supplied with an adapter nipple for small sizes. Make the hose connection to the nipple as short as possible, this gives a clearer test result.
  • Page 26 CARBURETTOR Metering unit Measurement chamber Note the internal order of the parts when dismantling to avoid reassembling in the wrong order. Gaskets A are identical. Measurement chamber – function The measurement chamber has two chambers: Air chamber (to the cover) and a fuel chamber (to the carburettor body).
  • Page 27 CARBURETTOR Pump unit Function The pump diaphragm (A) is driven by pressure variations in the crankcase, which are lead to the top of the pump diaphragm. The fuel underneath the diaphragm is pumped to the valves (B). Back pres- sure from the measurement chamber diaphragm to the needle valve in the measurement chamber regulates the valves' degree of opening and the amount of fuel pumped to the measurement chamber's fuel side.

  • Page 29: Decompression Valve

    DECOMPRESSION VALVE Decompression valve Function The decompression valve reduces the compression in the cylinder when starting. A limited quantity of fuel/air mixture leaks out through the decompression valve, as shown in fig. A. As soon as the engine fires the valve will close due to the combustion pressure, as in fig.

The belt pulley has dual, permanently lubricated ball bearings that face each other without spacers. The outer rings of the ball bearings are fitted with a light force against the belt pulley and a sliding fit against the crankshaft, which means that the belt pulley can easily be pulled from the crankshaft when dismantling the clutch.

The water strikes a section of the cutting blade and the centrifugal force carries it out towards the blade's diamond segment. The spray nozzles are available with several different hole diameters depen- ding on the type of machine and application.

    OILGUARD (OPTIONAL) OilGuard prevents the machine from running with the wrong fuel. To operate the function, an oil containing dye, “Husqvarna OilGuard oil”, must be added. Fuel analysis commences 10 seconds after start-up and con - tinues for 50 seconds. If OilGuard indicates the wrong fuel, the engine speed is restricted to 3,800 revolutions per minute.
