    I also cannot find a manual for my McCulloch Eager ****** 2.1ci chain saw. Maintenance is impossible or risky at best without knowing how to disassemble.

SOURCE: need owners manual for mccolloch electric chain saw

This is a tough one to find, but after some research I found the full blown tech manual (this saw is of the late 1980's vintage!)

Anyway, here's a free manual - I suggest you print and save a copy as a pdf for future use and reference, as once this gets pulled off the site, I doubt you'll be able to find it again.

http://mcculloch.motoruf.de/spell/get_file.php?filepath=/Mipl/ps100ser.pdf

You can also try calling 1-800-521-8559 and ask for the parts deparment and request a copy of the owners manual be emailed to you in a pdf format.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

SOURCE: set the carb for a mcculloch 3516 chain saw

Carburetor Adjustment
There are no hard and fast settings.
A good initial starting point for the "H" and "L" needle valves are 1.5 turns CCW from lightly seated.
The "T" adjustment enters here (idle speed) and there is no initial setting without a tachometer, depending on age of your saw there may not be any initial "T" setting.
The "L" needle is primarily idle performance (not speed) and acceleration to full throttle.
The "H" is mostly performance at speed, but all are interconnected.


Start with a fresh mix of fuel. Put ALL of the old mix in any 4 cycle engine and start new. I suggest 50:1 regardless of what your manual says.
CW is leaner; to lean will destroy the saw. If over tightened closed (CW) the adjustment screw faces are easily marred; once 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.
Clean the spark arrestor and muffler; if the saw cannot exhale it cannot inhale.
Now we adjust for performance. The best performance adjustment procedure I have found follows.
Madsens Shop & Supply, Inc. Carburetor adjustment (All saws homeowner and professional are the same)
http://www.madsens1.com/saw%20carb%20tune.htm Read step 4 (allow it warm before making adjustments).
There are 2 wav (sound - idle & full - may not be highlighted) files that I find most helpful, I think you will too.
I am going to inject a little philosophy here. Undetected air leaks and defective fuel delivery systems account for most chainsaw failures. Constant adjustment of needle valves can easily camouflage more serious problems that result in burning up your saw. A sudden need for an adjustment is often indicative of a larger problem.
If push comes to shove a local saw shop (I prefer Stihl mechanics and do not own a Stihl) should be considered.

If you have more questions or need additional help please reply below and I will get back to you. HTH & Good Luck.

SOURCE: I have a 3516 chain saw mod22-600035-18 Mcculloch the fuel lines

Okay I figured it out finally. One line from fuel tank with filter goes to bottom connection on carb, or right hand side furthest away from start er cord. The line on the other side of carberator goes to short nipple on primer bulb. then the center nipple on bulb goes to return line into tank, not good at typeing hope this helps took me 2 hours of trial and error to get it to run.

Mcculloch eager beaver chain saw


Hi Mike firstly check the air filter is clear and if so try putting some fresh gas where the spark plug goes into the block. If it fires its the gaskets on the carb. If it doesn't it's the gaskets on the block and it wont fire due to the compression being at fault.

What is the correct fuel/oil mixture for an older Eager ****** 16 inch chain saw?


It really depends on the model number of your Eager Beav er unit. Anything within the last 6 years is 50 to 1 older models can be anywhere from 25 to 1, to 32 - 1 up to 40 - 1. t all depends on the model number.

The usual fuel mixture is 40 - 1 or 3.2 oz. per gallon.

Your chain saw would have to be pre-1995 to use a mixture greater than 40-1. If your chain saw is other than that then use a 32 - 1 ratio. 4.oz per gal.

This is a great fuel mixture calculator:

If you know your model number you can use this page to get an owners / operators manual:

Need an owner manual for mcculloch eager ****** 300s-16 electric chain saw. Already contacted mcculloch and their parent company and the manual is not available from them


You would pay the manual about the price of new saw. These are made in china and usually motor or the switch blows. Check that the voltage pass thru the switch and if so and it dont work, throw it away.
