I used to think it was 3- Half turns. But just now discovered on a Poulin Pro, about 1-year old, this was to much. Flooded. Went with, screwing all the way in, and then backing both H and L out just 1-full turn (2-Halves). Perfect. From older models of 2-stroke motors, if, when you pull trigger, there is a lag in acceleration, then open the L little more, till lag is gone. Then at wide open, turn H in little till motor is at it highest RPM (or out, which ever makes it fastest), then back out the H about 1/4 turn. You are finding its most lean point (highest RPM) but, you want to run it slightly rich for most horse power when motor loaded i.e. cutting.

What or how to adjust the carberater

I take it you just found a heading for your saw and it is gas operated, not electric? Adjusting the carb, you have 2 jets on the side , one low one high, depending on what it does, won't rev, won't idle, open up the adj screws 1/4 turn and see what happens, if they have been moved in and out and are way off, turn them all the way in and then out 1 1/2 turns each, this should get you running. You can fine tune from here, one at a time, and very fine adj. It doesn't take much. make sure the gas is mixed right, and the chain does not bind. Hope this helps.

What are the carb. adjs. on a Mc culloch chain saw model cs 38em

If it bogs down like it's getting too much fuel, turn the low side screw out about 1/8 of a turn at a time until it will rev without bogging. If it chokes down like it's not getting any fuel, you probably need to open up the high screw a little.

BTW, you can determine which screw is which by looking at the carb at the base of the will have a L for Low or H for High stamped near it.

Cain saw

You might have to adjust the low on the carb, turn the low adj. all the way in and go out 1&1 half turns out. start from there. If that doesnt work you will need a carb rebuild. Also checkyour compression and cyl.

Husqvarna chain saw stalls

hi charlier 421

I think the small holes from the Venturi wall of the carb are clogged.To clean them you need carb disassembly.Near the needle there is a tehnological cover,under the diafragm(fuel pump).Taking off it you will see some small holes maiking conection with Venturi wall.Used ompresed air to clean them.
