Hi, I've acquired a 550xp Husqvarna. Lovely saw, in fact it's dragging me away from the 357's I normally use. However the chain brake isn't working due to the damaged raised, threaded plug that sits in the chain brake recess acting as a locking hinge, . I've tried various repairs with different araldite type fillers to 'remake' the raised plug but they only work for a short period of time. I'm thinking the best way of doing it is to drill out the enlarged hole and put in a metal tube with a flange on the exhaust side and put a thread in for the chain brake screw. The problem is I don't have such a thing lying around my shed . Does anyone have such a thing, or direct me as to where I could find one or maybe someone could suggest a better/easier repair. All ideas are welcome. The first two photo's attached show the problem and the last what the actual part should look like. Many Thanks
