Question about Garden
Newish machine. When speeding up (under load or without load); stalls. Have replace gas mixture, cleaned air filter and replaced gas filter. Saw worked perfectly for first 10-20 hours. Starts easily.
Hello sir,, now there are two types of carb.adjustment screw covers,the old one where there are plastic over the screws,simple remove the plastic covers with a pair of needle nose pliers or cutting off,,,second are the new ones that are above the adjustment screws,which you have to take your drummel tool with the cutting blade and cut slots in the screws, after you get this done it is important to count the number of rotations in until stops make note how many. because you are going to reset the same way.now remove the screws,put to the side when you get ready to put screws in put in all the way than back out as many turns that you noted, now that is factory set there should only be a small adjustment to do. the rule of thumb is turn both out 1 1/4 turn and adjust in until saw runs smooth and idles ok, it is hard to adjust the top speed when saw is running wide open,let saw idle when adjusting top speed is easier that way, when you go to cut wood you may have to readjust top speed, the above does apply some what if you are not using fresh gas mix and dumped out the old fuel and starting with fresh,and a new plug CJ8Y,and as you know the saw has to breath in and out by this i mean a clean air filter,make sure the small screen on the muffler is not cloged,this will keep saw from running at peak speed and sawing wood, ok i have ran across a few saws to where the small screen in the muffler is cloged so the saw would idle but not run at high rpm's,if you do and check all of the above your saw should run,oh btw check compression should be above 60 to 160 lbs, hope this helps,any comments welcome,thank you. 00

Testimonial: "Thank you; yes helpful! I'm a little confused about the car adjusting screws, The 460 has two 1/4" closely adjoining (Overlapping a bit, in fact) holes, labeled L and H. My small screwdriver will go in 2 inches. The right one (H) seems to have a slot (meets resistance when I gingerly try to turn it), while with the left one (L) it is not so apparent that thee is a slot. Make sense (I doubt it). I haven't actually tried to turn either yet. "
Clean out the Exhaust ports. I've had that problem & take off muffler spray with carburetor cleaner & clean out holes with small screwdriver.
If it can't get rid of the exhaust no adjusting of carburetor will fix your problem.

Suggest you drain the fresh gas/oil and add a fresh batch but first add a gas stabilizer to your batch of gas/oil in the storage container. You will probably still need to use starting fluid for a few times When 2 cycle engines sit for a long period of time, the gas/oil mixture undergoes a change and tends to leave a residue on the delicate parts of the carb. The gas stabilizer will help that.
I always do the following for 2 cycle engines when I put them up for the winter. Empty the gas container on the device and then start it to use up any gas left in the fuel lines and carb. this keeps any residue from forming.
Hope this helps Good luck Loringh PS please leave a rating if appropriate. Thanks

I've been messin with my poulan 2150 that was doing the same thing. Good, fresh gas, good spark,etc. I noticed whenever I loosened the fuel cap it would literally spray gas out! alas, I removed the muiffler assy and the darn thing fired up the first pull! I've got the muffler parts soaking in gas right now and I'm sure this the problem. It just makes sense especially if you use the same 'mixed fuel' can for weed eater, blower,etc. Check your's out, it could very well be your problem too! GOOD LUCK

The Correct Fuel Mixture Ratio
All two stroke engine will use a 50 to 1 ratio using today's two stroke oils. I once used an old chainsaw probably from the 1960s, that had a sticker on it that said to use a 25 to 1 fuel/oil ratio, but that would have been using two stroke oils of the time period the chainsaw was manufactured. In that chainsaw I used 50 to 1 ratio with no problems. Today's two stroke oils compared to yesteryears are more efficient at lubricating. It is like comparing today's synthetic motor oil to motor oils of decades ago. All the equipment I use in landscaping, anything from a weed eater, leaf blower, chainsaw, hedge trimmer, use 50 to 1 ratio, and I use all types of makes and models, Stihl, Homelite, Husqvarna, Shindaiwa, and Echo, Sears. I mix up a 5 liter fuel can and use it in all of the equipment for my customers and for my landscaping. To calculate the ratio is simple. For instance , if you have 1 gallon of fuel it is best to break it down into smaller units, like ounces. One gallon = 128 oz. You then divide this amount by the ratio of the mixture which is 50 to 1 (50 parts fuel, 1 part oil). So therefore 128 oz of divided by 50 = 2.56 oz (you would just measure out 2.5 oz ) of two stroke oil. If using metric, say a 5L gas can, you would break this down to smaller units, which would be milliliters. 5L = 5000 ml. 5000 ml of fuel divided by 50 = 100 ml of two stoke oil.
