    I have a 45cc power stroke timberman 45- It runs great for 2 min. then slows down .if you tilt it down it runs bad or up to much. I can turn the carb screws while it's running & it takes off & runs great for a min. no amount of adjusting will keep it running at max rpm.I tried putting the fuel pick up in different locations, no help it seams to run better as long as the tank is completely full.

    Still looking the answer to my question. Don't know who bear973 is or how their question was attached to mine. Does anyone out there know the answer to my question on Homelites?

    I adjust the carb and it runs great and strong for a long time, then suddenly it dies and is hard to start. I wonder if the chain is too tight. But I loosen the chain tension and it doesn't help. So my problem isn't too much drag (load) on the engine. I wonder if I just simply have to rebuild the carb.
    I've cleaned the tank and the line is good. I've had the "bad-line" problem before. Of course I've reset the carb-adjust limiters. I'm pretty thorough, so I guess the next step is to rebuild the carb. After all, if I took it to a shop, they could get it running so it would maintain its integrity... So why can't I?
    To those who have tried replacing the fuel line and dealing with the filter, try rebuilding the carb. Make sure to spray cleaner through all the ports and passages, the blow compressed air through afterwards. Reassemble and adjust as needed, using the new rebuild kit of course. Let it warm up and readjust as needed. Also keep in mind to have the air filter installed before making adjustments. Everytime you adjust any carb, you must do so as though it were going to run daily, with all components installed.

How about a new set of rings?or a crankset with new piston etc?could be just worn out on other 2 strokes you have to get new rings every so often,and decarbonize,at or around 500 to 1000 hrs ,a couple of wrongly mixed tanks of fuel will shorten life of the rings

I'd replace the fuel pickup and line. It sounds like you are getting air into the fuel system ahead of the carb.

Why does homelite chainsaw runs wide open?

if your saying your saw runs full speed as soon as it starts , one of two things is happening :
(1) your low speed carb jet is too far open
(2) your throttle trigger has disconnected or become stuck from your carburetor and now the throttle blade inside carb is full open

Need to know best way to adjust carb to get maximum performance on my homelite XL12

Regarding the adjustment procedure you generally start your low and high mixture screws at one turn from seat, or slowly turn them in all the way until they bottom out and then back them out one full turn. You will adjust the high speed mixture screw at full throttle and get the median point between too rich (loads up) and too lean (dies out). You will want to do the same thing with the idle mixture screw, just adjust at idle rpm. You will also adjust the low idle mixture screw to give you a smooth transition from idle to throttle up. Once this is obtained, you adjust the third or idle speed screw low enough so the chain does not turn at idle rpm but high enough so the saw doesn't cut off. Hope this gets you going.
