Quick video to show how splitting can be done with out the expensive tools. Care must be given to align tooling and crank shaft. Also to protect the case half mating surfaces.
An overview video on how to copy the Husqvarna "knocker" service tool. These can be made to fit any crank for easy flywheel removal.
A friend had mentioned that in theory it was possible to run the motor in reverse without rewiring. Spend the day running it in this manner.
Three remedies to fix the idle issue and or hesitation off idle on the 555 562 saws. Update: Currently my recommendation if you have a hesitation issue with the EL44, follow this video. Adjust the pop off and mod the butterfly as needed. If you are having any issues and the saw has the EL46,replace it with the El44 using the current up to date computer that was on the EL46. Then adjust per the video as needed.
Had big ideas for this video but when it came down to time restraints and the many different saw fuel systems, I decided to do a broad approach.

Please ignore my measurement list at the end. This was my third attempt at this video. At the end of the first two, the camera wouldn't save. Had all kinds of numbers trapped in my head lol
