Husqvarna 455 X Torque Rancher

Deputy347k9July 13, 2013

New member, 1st post! I am in a bind and hoping someone can help me out! Just rebuilt the carb on my Husqvarna 455 X torgue chain saw. Rebuild went great, saw now runs like a champ, however! For the life of me I can not figure out the proper install of the kill switch and wire. This saw has one external push down assembly for shut off with the choke directly below it. This is one single unit. Under the cover is one singe wire (left side) with a angled piece of thin metal that connects somewhere, somehow? When you push down on the shut off the wire would make contact with the metal, shutting hte saw off. None of my manuals nor anything I can find on line show the proper install of the wire and metal piece?

Can anyone provide me with a clear picture of this setup? I would be so greatful!

Most respectfully,

Is it easy to take a picture of this area and items mention and post it if someone does not help you soon? I felt a youtub or engine diagram would easily be found and help, but no luck. Personally I have not been in the saw but a pic might help to see the needed positioning..

The picture is the switch on my Husqvarna 350. From what I can see in some online IPLs, your 455 saw has about the same setup.
Blue wire has a metal terminal that pushes into a couple of grooves in the plastic switch.
Black wire (enclosed in insulation) has a female spade terminal that pushes onto a male terminal on the metal spring/conductor.
