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 K750 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 secondary coil (B) which are both surround ed by the iron core (C).

    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.

  • Page 43 Bearing replacement – needle bearing For a long time, a clutch drum with needle bearing has been the standard design on Husqvarna petrol-driven power cutters. The needle bearing is lubricated via a channel in the crankshaft from the crankcase. In 2007 the needle bearing is being replaced with a ball bearing. Please note that machines with a needle bearing cannot be fitted with a ball bearing as the crankshaft and clutch drum are of different dimensions.
  • Page 44 CLUTCH Bearing replacement – ball bearing A clutch drum with permanently lubricated ball bearing is being introduced on the K750 in 2007. The drilled channel in the crankshaft that provided the earlier needle bearing design with lubrication is being discontinued. Tools The tool kit 504 56 79-01 is needed to replace the ball bearing of the clutch drum.
