Remove the chain brake cover and check the end of the crankshaft to see if there is a small hole for the roller nose lube gun that should have came with the saw. If so, inject a couple of pumps into this hole which will put grease into the bearing.
If no hole exists then you will have to remove the clutch housing from the saw which can only be done easily with an air or electric impact wrench. The nut comes of in the OPPOSITE direction (counterclockwise) that the nut rotates in when in operation - this should be very easy. Then remove the clutch housing which will expose the needle bearing and using your fingers smear the bearing with a small amount of light high pressure grease. Then replace the clutch housing and turn the nut in the opposite direction you used to take it off with your fingers until it is snug - then use the impact wrench in a very short burst to tighten the nut. Finally replace the clutch housing and/or bar and chain.
For a casual user this should only have to be done once a year as good quality chain oil can get into this area and provide some lubrication.

Yes you can make your own cylinger gasket for your chain saw just as you can make a gasket for a carberator or other items. Just go to the local automobile parts store and ask for gasket material. Take the old gasket out and trace the pattern on the gasket material and cut it out. The holes will have to be cut cut out also to the correct diameter. The screw holes can be drillied out or punced out for the installation. Be sure you obtain the correct gasket material so take the old material in with you for them to look at.

This saw needs aproxamitly 150 psi. Any less than 120 and you will have problems with the saw breaking up at high rpm and stalling under load. Pop the muffler off and take a peek at the piston and the cylinder walls for scoring. If its scored it will need a new jug and piston, the kit from Husqvarna, includes everything you will need, should run from $175.00 to $200.00.

Hope this helps, feel free to email me with any other questions, we are a Husqvarna dealer/repair center and can help you out with that saw. It is a great saw all the features of the XP line at a fraction of the cost. It has the 3 piece crank and magnesium case. It is definitely worth putting the money into this saw!
