Typically 1 to 1 1/2 turns out will get you going.

Need carbureator jet settings for snapper SKU 952711718 weed eater motor


screw all the way in and back out 3/4 of a turn. Then adjust the bottom screw out 1/4 turn at a time till it cranks and continue adjusting till it idles good.
Then adjust the top screw till it stays running when going to high speed abruptly.

Hard to start, when i get it started it fine shut it off try to start it hard to start


Hi
General advice aplicable for all gas powered chain saws;
Clean air filter regularly.
-Adjust spark plug gap (very important). A faulty gap will either cause poor spark or a overloaded and damaged spark plug coil.
-Use correct good quality spark plug
-Use correct oil/fuel mix ratio and correct oil.
-Do not use old premixed fuel if you can avoid it.

Carburator adjustment;
-idle speed setting screw should be set so that the saw idles well, without engaging the chain. If you normally have to press the gas lever to be able to start it coul indicate a to low seting. Clockwise will increase idle speed. This screw is found near the carburator and is slightly larger the the two adjusment screws.
- fuel-air mixture screws can be set to standard factory setting as a start. Normally there are 2 screws labeled L and H, for Hi and Low rpm band adjustments. Factory setting are usually 3/4 turn out(anti clockwise) from fully closed setting for both (clockwise to closed position).
Experiment with adjustments by 1/8 increments at the time. Anti clockwise turning will increase fuel to air ratio and opposite. Warm weather will require a slightly leaner mix and cold weather will reqire a slightly richer mix(more fuel). Low rpm setting only serves the idling performance. The Hi rpm setting can be evaluated by removing the spark imediately after running at full load for a period. The spark plug should be dry, and be lightly brownish at the electrodes. White-ish color indicates low fuel to air mix, and this causes too high combustion temperature. A black colour indicates a too high fuel to air mix ratio, and it causes carbon build up on the plug.

If you still have starting problems, cylinder/piston compression is the next to check for. This is a more extensive job and should best be left to professionals, unless you are very skilled and have access to special tools required. Compression on modern saws are very delicately balance, so the slightest damage to either the rings, piston or cylinder can cause problems. Is is not alwas worth to replace the cylinder and piston kit, so compare prices and ask for advice at your dealer.

I hope this helps you.

How do you set the carburator back to factory specs. mine wont keep running


Basic settings can vary from model to model, a good starting point for most carbs is screw both H and L screw right in ,then back the H screw out 1 turn and the L screw 1 and1/4 turns, the machine should run well enough to fine adjust from there, they are both fuel screws, so the more you unscrew them the richer the saw becomes, always remember if there in another under lying problem adjusting the carb screws will not always help, before any adjustment clean or replace the fuel filter in the fuel tank.

Need to know then factory settings for the carburetor on a 78 it 250 e...how many turns out for the idle and how many turns out for the air/fuel mix?


I have the H model and set mine at one and a half turns out from stop. It waivers a little from summer to winter but only by a fraction.

As for the idle speed, when bike is warmed it will idle a little different to when cold and using choke.

Personal preference really, without a tacho fitted, I set it so she idles easy when cold. Once she's warm, idling is generally not used!!

To balance the two, warm engine and hold throttle at your optimum idle speed. Screw in idle adjuster until it engages base edge of carby slide. Release throttle and screw in/out fractionally to test if revs rise/fall. Set at optimum and then turn air mixture screw in/out till revs are highest (without using throttle). Then reset Idle screw back out to bring revs down to optimum level.

Tip, use a little thread seal on the idle screw as they have a nasty habit of unscrewing and leaving a hole in the side of your carby...sure fire way to lean right out and burn a hole in your piston when riding.

Cheers.

I need to set carb on a husqvarna 455 back to factory


Start with "H" and "L" 1 turn CCW from lightly seated. Then tune for performance like this.
Carburetor Adjustment by Madsens.com
http://www.madsens1.com/saw%20carb%20tune.htm
CW is leaner; to lean will destroy the saw. If over tightened closed (CW) the adjustment screw faces are easily marred; marred adjustments are difficult to impossible to set properly.
Clean the air filter; adjusting with a dirty filter can cause a run lean condition once cleaned and the saw run.

There are 2 wav (sound - idle & full – may not be highlighted) files that I find most helpful, I think you will too. HTH

Tt-r 125 e carburetor adjustment My son tried to clean the carburetor and set all the jets and screws tight. What do I set which jet at ?


The air screw and throttle screw are the only settings on the carb. Bear in mind they only screw in until they LIGHTLY seat. Now turn each adjuster one and one half turns outward. This is the factory setting. Put the rest of the carb back together, clean the air filter and install the carb. Let the float bowl fill then start the engine.


If the screw adjusters were screwed in tight they will likely need to be replaced. The end of the screws will have a depression ring and that little ring can screw up the carb.

Could you take a moment and rate my answer? Thanks!

Idle speed problems


Hi Walker14,

You have to sync thecarbs and also you will have to reset the air-fuel mixture screws.
One of the carburators should be factory adjusted, I dont wn a kawasaki but I own a YAMAHA SECA XJ750R and thro it I am sharing my experince.
Once you have located the factory preadjusted carburator you can thn set the others to its specs. I use the feeler gauge to do for my bikes carburators and it works fine.
With regards to the mixture screw..... get the all in tightened but slowly aas to not damage the pin end of it!.
Start the bike and get it to normal running temp and thn set the screws 2 and half turns out...you may need to set your idling speed before you begin this setting of the mixture screws, you prolly will hveto go higher on revs or vicecersa ....onc eyou are at the mixture screws and adjusting them , you will surely note the differenc ein sound of he bike an its idling ..
Hope this will help.
