    I'm running Husky 55 Rancher. I dropped saw and now the clutch cover won't go back on cause the clutch brake metal loop is too tight. I dont' know how to move the brake mechanism to losen it back up. There is a spring mechanism. How do you adjust in order to put back together?

    Thanks

    Good to hear Dave but does the break still work properly? It's important that it'll lock as designed and you can ...with minimum effort unlock it.

    Check that out with the saw off.
