What are the carb. adjs. on a Mc culloch chain saw model cs 38em


If it bogs down like it's getting too much fuel, turn the low side screw out about 1/8 of a turn at a time until it will rev without bogging. If it chokes down like it's not getting any fuel, you probably need to open up the high screw a little.

BTW, you can determine which screw is which by looking at the carb at the base of the screw...it will have a L for Low or H for High stamped near it.

MY CARB


I didn't think there was an adjustment in there, the air fuel screw?? Is it outside? Are there 2 screws outside? Is it Mikuni? If it has 2 adj screws outside, turn both in all the way, then back them out 1 1/4 turns each, this should get you running, some minor adj from there should make it right. But I could have sworn there was no adj on those, and the only way to adjust it is to change the jet. Check it out.

Need to adjust my honda shadow 500 vt carburator's fuel/air mixture


start by synchronizing your throttle plates. Honda calls the next step the "idle drop procedure". u need to know if you have fuel adj. screws or air adj. screws. fuel screws will be on engine side of carb slide, air screws will be on airbox side of carb slide. start leaning out mixture, (turn in fuel screw, turn out air screw. idle will increase so keep adjusting idle back to spec.after each turn if needed. Adjust about 1/4 to 1/2 turn at a time on each carb until there is no change in idle, then richen up mixture by one half turn. If u sync throttle plates first then follow this procedure, there should be no hesitation when you "blip" the throttle, and after revving it should return to idle smooth,

I have a 1994 xcr440 liquid cooled sled carb settings


YOU DONT NEED SETTINGS TO SYNC CARBS. YOU NEED A CARB SYNC GAUGE. TURN THE SYNC SCREW UNTIL BOTH GAUGES READ THE SAME! AS FAR AS THE SLOW SPEED ADJ. USUALLY 2-2.5 TURNS OUT FROM BOTTOMED WILL SUFFICE.
