346 XP advice needed.

Recommended Posts

Yes I deffo strained it by repeatedly try to get it to click in and that's why it failed and haven't got the knack of the pros that have done it before but what a stupid design the only reason can be manufacturing costs ,it wouldn't be so bad if any of the local Husky dealers stocked spares but they don't.Total pain in the arse.

 I know the clamp might seem like a pain in the arse

 but there are some good reasons they are like that.

1...its a pre set clamping force that with the proper intake gives a known sealing performance that Husqvarna will have tested....a screw clamp works fine but has to be done up to the right pressure and stay at that pressure.

2...the clamp, in best practice, is a fit once and replace if you remove the intake in the future (not often done and they are cheep).

3...it is low profile and can fit into the limited space in front of the partition wall easily.

If you have a tool and instruction to instal , like most things its far less hassle than without.

Thanks I get your point and I admit its down to my inexperience, but I have had so many carbs in and out of 2 strokes bikes so many times never a problem and Yamaha and the like know how to build a reliable smoker.Husky could have made it simple, I'm not going to wait for another clamp from the internet only parts supply.Thanks again though for yours and the other poster's advice ,it really is appreciated and every day is a school day.

These clamps were really a fix for the plastic unit that could fail rather than a 1st design.. other saws in the 300 group use a clamp akin to the Yamaha sort you mention. The updated intake partition kit makes ether sort of clamp work at there best (without modding the old one) , screw thread or pain in the butt sort😀

The 346 is now all back together and running sweetly,I used a 9mm s/steel band fixing and a new boot and impulse hose ,new choke lever, reset the carb screws back to stock and with hardly any messing with the carb it is pulling well.I thrashed it for about an hour, and tick over is now totally consistent.

Thanks all for your help.
