I just purchased a Husqvarna 445 a few days ago. Seller said it may need some carb work. It started exactly like my 450 then stalled so I purchased it for $80 figuring all it needed was a good carb cleaning. Cleaned the carb which was spotless and had the same issue. Swapped carbs with my 450, same issue. Almost seems like its shutting off. Primer bulb is good. Fuel lines and fuel filter are like new. Tried adjusting the carb, same results. The low adjustment did nothing. The high adjustment worked as it's supposed to. Swapped fuel caps with the 450, no change. The strange thing is it will run at WOT, but thats it. It's running hot and lean at WOT. New spark plug is white. I sprayed carb cleaner around the intake at WOT but that didn't do anything. Compression is 122 cold. The saw literally looks brand new. Another issue I noted is that the bar oil is literally pouring out of it especially when its running. Additional info: no scuffs or scrapes on the piston on the exhaust side, impulse line, intake boot look perfect. This one has me stumped! Would a bad seal on the crankshaft cause this kind of running issue? What is good compression for this saw?? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
