Hi, new here and from Buffalo NY area.
Two things I've read about and found that I'd like to share:
1- Gear misalignment/vibration issues that were mentioned on another thread. Someone said they found that the marks on the crankshaft/clutchbasket gears didn't line up, so they corrected it. Mine were also off, BUT I have a hand placed scribe mark located one tooth of original mark, counterclockwise on the crank gear. So it must have been a factory deemed change, so I'm leaving it. (have pics)
2- "Brake howl" that has been noticed by some is the rear sprocket rubbing on the nylon chain guard insert.
Hope this (above) helps someone.
This my 3rd Husqvarna, and hope I made a good choice!
