Intake Manifold #544082301

My 445 Husky, purchased in July 2012 and used quite a bit cutting firewood, started to idle rough, did some stalling and was hard to keep running and carb adjustments were needed but did not hold. I saw a YouTube video that illustrated the problem- and air leak somewhere in or around the intake manifold. I replaced it with the part #544082301 and installed a gasket kit in the carb. This saw has been run on nothing but non-ethanol and  Amsoil Sabre (90 to1). Upon installation of these parts the saw is back to normal and runs as new.
IF you install these parts it is not hard but tedious and you need to have a clean, well lit work area and do not hurry it. You will also see where leaks can occur. Make sure the four allen screws are cross and evenly tightened when secured to the motor. Sometimes I felt like a dentist working in someone's mouth while doing all this. But it worked.

    I'm sure you had a bit more fun than an actual trip to the dentist, am I right? Haha.

    The dentist visits are no problem. A saw that doesn't run right is a real pain. I used it for the first time to day doing farm work and getting ready for deer season. It actually seems to start easier from cold than it did before. When warm? One pull. The ergonomics of the 445 are excellent. Husky got it right on this saw. However for serious work I do have an XP372. Remember keep the teeth sharp. Pardon the pun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
