I presume you mean lo and hi speed screw. Not sure of Huskys but most saws suggest you begin with 1 full turn open and adjust from there.

Changing my fuel line on my husqvarna141 chain saw and after pulling line out cant figure out where it threads back in to tank

The 141 uses a a very small bore fuel hose, it feeds through the top of the crankcase under the carb, and into the top of the fuel tank, it is not easy to do without removing the fuel tank from the crankcase. To remove the tank, start by removing the air filter held with two screws, remove the two 8mm nuts securing the filter back plate and remove, remove the two 7mm studs securing the carb, and the two cross head screws securing the carb support plate, remove the carb and throttle wire, now remove the four screws securing the starter cover ( these screw into two of the anti vib mounts ) turn the saw over and remove the 4mm allen screw securing the chain catcher at the front corner of the saw, remove the single cross head screw at the rear top corner of the saw and remove the plastic orange cap, the tank will now come away with the top handle as a unit, you can now see and fit the fuel hose.

seems your over rev's may be your carb is sucking air it could be the intake gasket isn't lined up properly or the carb mounting bolts vibrated lose
sometimes the over rev is caused by dirty linkage jamming or trigger jam

I have the same problem with my 350 Husqvarna chain saw. I took the saw to a licensed Husqvarna Dealer. The dealer said that there was noting wrong with the saw. The dealer did clean the carb. I brought...

The temperature is not that different. Is there a fair change in altitude between the dealer and where you live? The jet screws have 'D' heads to prevent owner tampering--how did you adjust them? You need to allow the engine to warm up before pulling the throttle. Make sure the fuel mix is fresh and mixed 50:1 with synthetic chain saw oil--be sure to shake the container thoroughly just before filling the tank each time to prevent oil starvation. It has to be the manufacturer's problem because it is under warranty. It sounds like the jet screws are set fairly lean. Ask the dealer if you can buy the special 'D' head screwdriver to make your own adjustments. Hope this helps!

I put gas in the oil tank and the oil in the gas tank by mistake, started the saw , it ran for a few minutes then it serious???

Not likely. The gas in the oil tank can be drained and refill with bar oil - it might even help it feed more oil to the bar and chain as it would clean any deposits out! The oil in the fuel would just plug up the jets in your carburetor. You'll need to remove the tank and any housing over the carb, as well as the air filter. Blow compressed air into the fuel line to remove the oil from it and watch where it comes out in the carb. Now spray carb cleaner into the throat the oil came out using the red straw. It is possible you may need to remove the air / fuel mix screws on the side of the carb. If so, turn those screws clockwise, counting how many turns it takes to bottom out the screw - take your time, this is really important to get it to run when your done.Don't tighten those screws down - you may damage the seat which will affect the operation. Writing down the turns may help - it helped me!! Remove those screws and blast those ports with the carb cleaner and straw.Spray out fuel line again as well as the throat the oil came out in the carb. Remove and clean or replace spark plug. Doing it now will give the carb cleaner time to dry out. Install those screws, making sure you get them in the right positions and the right turns out by bottoming out the screws then turning out to the proper distance. Install tank, air cleaner, and shoot a 1/2 second blast of starting fluid into the cylinder before you install the plug - make sure you use starting fluid with lubrication so you don't bugger up the piston rings or cylinder wall. Install spark plug, fill oil tank, fill fuel tank with proper mix fuel, choke and start - you should be good to go.
Hope this helps!!

Chain saw carburator settings for husqvarna 61

Turn both screws CW to stops (lightly), then back out CCW 1-1/2 turns each. This is a basic setting and the engine should start and run. Allow the engine to warm up, then pull the throttle full on. Turn the H jet screw CW until the engine starts to speed up, but still 4-strokes. Proper adjustment occurs when the engine is 4-stroking, but immediately 2-strokes when cutting. This gives best power and lowest heat. Release the throttle and adjust L jet CW until the engine idles fairly well, but will allow the engine to 'follow the throttle'. Adjust idle speed screw so that the chain stops turning, but the engine continues to run. Hope this helps!

Model 445 chainsaw. Was cutting all day and no problem. Good gasoline, Husqvarna 2 cycle oil. All of a sudden started racing like the carb was stuck full open even when throttle trigger released. Then...

Engine speeding up on idle is normally due to an air leak, check the carb securing screws are tight, if you have a leaking crank seal it will be a shop repair.

While cutting the chainsaw bogs down and stops

Check the air filter and the muffler if either are plugged up it will not run smooth. Carb hi and low screws are very sensitive so if you change them, only move them a little at a time.

Where is the bar oil adjusted from on husqvarna 345

Turn the Hus 345 chain saw upside down, you may see a little Icon of a oil droplet and a + - arrow by the chain. THe adjustment screw is not pictured in any of the standard user manuals,. but it is a small black slot headed screw over a rectangale metal tab by the chain. I believe if you turn it counter-clockwise, it will give you more oil,, It did for me. If you have the bar off, you can start the saw and see it come out the hole, that would verify your oil pump is working. Make sure the holes on the bar are clean also. running the saw at a fast idle for 1 min should oil the chain well enouth that it starts spraying off the end of the bar when you gun the engine.
