  • Page 9 Electrical system The engine is equipped with an electronic ignition system completely without moving parts. Consequently, a faulty component cannot be repaired, but must be replaced by a new component. The spark in an electronic ignition system has a very short burn time and can therefore be interpreted as weak and can be diffi cult to see while troubleshooting.

Check other cables and connections for poor contacts (dirt, corrosion, cable brea- kage and damaged insulation). See chapter 3 “Throttle”. TIP! Use an Ohmmeter in order to easily check if cable breakage has occurred, due to pinching, for example.

  • Page 27 Centrifugal clutch The centrifugal clutch has the task of transferring the power from the engine to the cutting equipment’s drive axle. As the name implies, it works according to a centrifugal principle. This means the clutch’s friction shoes are thrown outwards towards the clutch drum at a certain engine speed.

  • Page 33 Angle gear The angle gear has two purposes: The fi rst is to gear down the engine’s high speed to better suit the lower speed a saw blade or trimmer requires to work effi ciently. Secondly, the angle gear contributes towards the operator’s working stance so that it is comfor- table and at the same time effi cient.

    Cylinder and piston The cylinder and the piston are two of the components exposed to most strain in the engine. They must withstand, for example, high speeds, large temperature swings and high pressure. Moreover, they must be resistant to wear. Despite these tough working conditions, major piston and cylinder failure is relatively uncommon.
  • Page 38: Cleaning, Inspection

    Cylinder and piston Cleaning, inspection After dismantling, clean the individual components: 1. Scrape carbon deposits from the top of the piston. 2. Scrape carbon deposits from the cylinder’s combustion chamber. 3. Scrape carbon deposits from the cylinder’s exhaust port. NOTE! Scrape carefully with not too sharp a tool so as not to damage the soft aluminium parts.

For the best results we recommend Husqvarna two-stroke oil or ready-mixed fuel that is specially developed for air-cooled two-stroke engines. Mixing ratio: 1:50 (2%). If Husqvarna two-stroke oil is not available another good quality two-stroke oil can be used.
  • Page 40 Cylinder and piston Piston damage caused by a too high engine speed. Typical damage from too high engine speed is ruptured piston ring/piston rings, broken circlip on the gudgeon pin, faulty bearings or that the guide pin for the piston ring has become loose.
  • Page 41 Cylinder and piston Foreign objects Everything other than clean air and pure fuel that enters the engine’s inlet port causes some type of abnormal wear or damage to the cylinder and piston. This type of increased wear shows on the piston’s inlet side starting at the lower edge of the piston skirt.

  • Page 47 Crankshaft and crankcase The task of the crankshaft is to transform the reciprocating motion of the piston to rotation. This requires a stable design withstanding immense pressure and rotational and bending strain, as well as high rotational speed. In addition the connecting rod is exposed to large acceleration and retardation forces as it moves between the top and bottom dead centres.
