    Fuel system Fuel pump Fuel pump The fuel pump facilitates cold starts. The fuel pump has the task of facilitating the start of the engine when cold. The pump fi lls the carburettor with fuel before attempting to start the engine. This also prevents vapour bubbles from blocking the narrow fuel channels.

    Fuel system Start throttle speed The start throttle speed can be adjusted using screw (G) Proceed as follows: 1. Start the engine and let it idle. 2. Press down the start throttle lock (C). 3. When the start throttle speed is too low (below 4000 rpm), screw the adjuster screw (G) clockwise until the cutting equipment starts to rotate.
  • Page 27 Fuel system Fine adjustment after running-in After the running-in period it may be necessary to fi ne adjust the carburettor nozzles, usually to get a leaner fuel/air mix.

  • Page 28 Fuel system Adjustment after cleaning After complete cleaning, replacement of carburettor nozzles or complete carburettor, both basic setup and fi ne adjustment must be carried out. The basic setup is: H = 1.2 revs open L = 1.2 revs open For the adjustment to be correct, it must be done under load and with warmed-up en- gine.

  • Page 31 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.

    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 42: 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 44 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 45 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 51 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 retarda- tion forces as it moves between the top and bottom dead centres.
