Unhappy Husqvarna 460 chain brake is stuck



Wouldn't you know it? I hired two guys that wanted work to help me clean out the back yard. The chain slipped off the saw bar about noon and I told them to break for lunch. I went to pick up the burgers and when I came back they had the Husq open and were playng with the chain. Now I can't get the clutch cover back on because the clutch brake won't fit over the clutch. It's in the stop position. I have a decent parts diagram and I'm hoping that I can release the brake without using the brake handle which I can't engage because the cluch cover won't fit!! Any suggestions?

don't own a husky but look for a cam that you can turn to loosen everything off. shouldn't be to hard to fix, if you can just spot the problem.

Cool Thanks for the reply!

What diameter wrench did you use? What did you cut it with? Do you think same diameter PVC pipe would work?
Thanks in advance.

The wrench is 5/8" I used a 4" right angle grinder and cleaned it up with a file. It takes a lot of force to release the brake I don't think that PVC would work.
