Aceleration It starts OK but after some time the speed control (aceleration) does not work. It has 2 screws that can not be adjust with any tool, someone told me that it required a special tool for this, in other words you can not adjust the carburator.

Fixed carb still wont run right


If you are sure the carb is rebuilt correctly then you will need to adjust the high speed screw to get the fuel mix right. There is a small H on the side of the carb that denotes the high speed screw and usually takes a special tool to adjust it. The government made them tamper proof but you can purchase splined screw driver to adjust them with.

Hello,
My name is Dane and I am going to assist you in solving your problem.

You will need to adjust the high speed setting on your Carburetor jet. Turning the screw out just 1/2 turn or so should do the trick. It is not so hard to adjust the Carburetor, however, yes you do need a special tool that is very hard to get your hands on, in order to adjust the jet screws. They don't make many engines with plain screw heads anymore. The newer Carburetors are factory set lean so they can pass emission standards. Since you just bought yours, a local husky dealer should adjust the mixture for free. I hope I've helped. If you found this reply useful, please leave me some THUMBS UP, if you feel I

Engine starts fine but lacks power until it warms up for 2 to 5 minutes. Carb is ok, replaced head gasket. Just started doing this


If it starts at completely cold to fine tune the high jet adjustment.first off the high speed jet should be initially set at 1 1/2 turns out from lightly bottomed all the way in. next when you do your prestart routine,choke all the way on,primer pumped two times,throttle set at the high speed position,ignition key on,fuel line turned on.(this is my prestartup for my 8hp tecumseh)yours may be slightly different.use whatever starts your machine the easiest! once my machine starts up i can almost immediately turn the choke completely off. i can do that because the high speed jet is opened enough or rich enough for the engine to run.if you adjust the high speed in it will lean the motor out(you found that to be true!) to where it will miss and backfire and eventually quit. start at 1 1/2 turns out and start the engine,once the engine starts if you take the choke off right away use what it does as a guide to high speed adjustment. if the engine quits turn the screw out 1/4 turn and so on.use the very first cold startup as the test for high speed mixture adjustment. at completely cold startup you have the jet adjusted correctly when the engine will sustain itself when you completely take the choke off very shortly after startup. let the amount of choke you need at cold start to keep the engine running be your guide.too lean and the engine will not stay running without the choke at all,too rich and the engine will not pull under extreme loads and will show signs of black soot out the exhaust. you want the jet adjusted so within 5 seconds of cold start the engine will stay running with no choke at all. find that needle setting ( don't ad any more!! ) and you'll be good to go.keep in mind the above is not optimum and is a little rich but you will like the way it starts,stays running,and overall performs as adjusted above.

The owners manual for my Ryobi 210 describes carburetor adjustment but the photos do not show which screw is the idle mixture adjuster.


The Low speed adjustment screw is the one marked as "L" and would be adjusted during:
1. Idle - to insure running smoothly, and
2. Acceleration - to transition from Idle to High Speed.

The High speed adjustment screw is the one marked as "H" and would be adjusted during:
1. High speed or Wide Open Throttle. Turn about 1/8 either way to gain top RPM's and then back off slightly.

The final screw is an Idle Set screw. This screw sets the actual speed of the Idle and is the screw attached to the end of the throttle cable as it terminates at the carburetor. Turning it:
1. Clockwise - increases RPM's (speeds up motor)
2. Counter Clockwise - reduces RPM's (slows down the motor)

Leaf blower starts and runns ok for few mins then


Target your inspection towards the 'spark arrestor screen' in the outlet of the muffler.

Overfuel or 'rich' condition
Basics to check:
1) Spark plug - brown or dark brown - OK
a) is it carbon or fuel fouled
b) is there spark

2) Muffler remove for inspection
a) exhaust screen clean or plugged
b) inspect cylinder wall/piston as the flywheel is slowly rotated
3) Check Air filter for fuel saturation
4) Allow engine to run for 5 minutes to excess fuel from muffler
5) Fuel mixture ratio: Make sure the oil mix is per your manufactures recommendations
6) If after the above the engine is still smoking and blubbering:
Adjust carb mixture screws to a 'less rich' setting
*NOTE: only move mixture screws 1/8 of a turn at a time,
and try operation before any more adjustment

Would like to find out how to set carb hi/low speed on homelite mod ut 08030 leaf blower


This is not difficult but it takes patience. First screw both screws in full, then unscrew them out one full turn each.
Start your engine and working on the low screw first adjust it along with
the throttle control screw until you have ticking over nicely, then do the same with the H screw. Make your adjustments very little at a time. Stephen

Idles but stalls when throttled


If you have the TB2BP EC Troybilt backpack and it bogs down or begins to stall out at full throttle with choke in FULL OPEN try the following:
1. Do the simple stuff first, Check spark plug, air filter and clean or replace if necessary.
2. Remove air filter cover, open choke and spray out the carb with carb cleaner.
3. Inspect carb and look for a flat surfaced screw with a small V notch on the side of it. It will be on the top side just forward of where the fuel lines connect. If you find it don't waste any more time looking for the High and Low fuel adjustment screws (there aren't any) this is the only adjustment other than the throttle adjustment screw you'll find.
4. Start your blower allow time for it to warm up and advance choke as far open as you can without stalling motor (mine just suddenly wouldn't run in anything other than full choke).
5. With motor running, adjust the screw to improve operation. Depending on your initial choke setting you may have to adjust, open choke to next position and fine tune.
6. Note- clockwise reduces fuel to carb, while counter clockwise increases it (if it's stalling when you attempt to throttle up it's starved for fuel) I'm sure there's a tool designed so that some tech can charge you 100.00 to turn the adjustment screw 1/4 turn but I found that a pair of fine needle nose pliers did just fine. Pay attention to original position of the V notch and what adjustments you make ( I tend to make 1/4 turns and fine tune from there) so you can always go back to your starting point. Note I'm not a technician so I can't say this the fix for your machine but it worked on mine.

6.5 toro walk behind self propell b&s engine. self propel does not work


Try adjusting your self propel cable. A slight extension of the cable (1/4 inch) will double speed, so do a little at a time. Take the back guard off and clean debris 2 or 3 screws and it is just a cover so nothing will pop out unless that is your real problem. You should have grease fittings behind rear wheels so squirt 2 times with grease gun in each wheel and 1 squirt every 3rd mow.

Ryobi straight gas trimmer, runs rough at idle and up to 1/2 speed, but great at full speed. Bought a reconditioned one.


Here was my solution:
I was having problems with my ryobi cs30 weedeater also. It would start up fine on full choke, but i could not give it more than half throttle or ever take the choke off or it would stall out. I replaced fuel mixture, spark plug, spark arrestor/exhaust, fuel lines, cleaned carb, and still nothing! I was considering getting a better machine. Then i decided to play with the carb adjustments.(on my cs-30, they are two screws on the carb that have a "L" and "H" next to them) I dont think you can get the specialty tool for adjusting the carb unless you are a repair tech, so i just took a Dremmel tool with the circular cut-off wheel to the head of the specialty screws and made them into "flat-head" screws so i could adjust them with a regular screwdriver (if you dont have a dremmel, get one!) (As i was cutting into the head of the screws, i also cut into the casing protecting the head of the screws that was in the way, this does not cause any damage to the unit, that casing is only there to keep "un-certified" people from adjusting it for themselves.)
Now to the easy part: The "L" screw adjusts the idle fuel mixture and the "H" screw adjusts the full throttle fuel mixture. turning the screws clockwise make the machine run leaner (less fuel) and counter clockwise makes it run richer (more fuel).
-I started out by turning each screw 1/2 turn counter clockwise and started it up, then as it was idling, i started adjusting the "L" screw as i was moving the choke position to run, after a few full turns counter clockwise of the "L" screw, it was idling perfectly in the run position, then i did the same thing the the "H" screw while holding down the throttle and i got it to run perfectly in the run position. Now it is running way better than it ever has. I hope this helps everyone.
Good Luck!
* For this specific problem, i would say you should probably just adjust the "L" screw and hopefully that will help

Needs carburator adjustment for poulan model # FL 26


Sure. (This will void your warranty and bypass smog requirements!) There is a red and a white limiter cap on the carburetor adjustment screws. Red= High speed / White = Low speed. Remove limiter caps. Turn both jets a 1/2 turn counter clockwise, Start, then fine tune. Use the low speed and idle screws to smooth out low to idle speed and the hi speed jet to tune the full throttle.
