Homelite Blower HB180V carb adjustments.

Can you tell me the initial carb mixture screw adjustments and which screw is the Hi or Lo, left or right? Have been looking for an online operators manual with no success yet. Thanks.

Only runs with choke half on as if mixture is too weak. Can`t work out how to adjust mixture

homelites fuel mixture is 32:1 and you can try to adjust the jets or jet on the carb if it has two jets turn them all the way in to the right but dont over do it just till they stop then back them out one full turn and see if that does the trick if not then you need a carb kit

I have a Toro 524 with Tecumseh engine, model 38040 8 0000640. I am rebuilding the carb and would like to know what are basic settings for idle and hi/low speed screws?

The high speed mixture screw is initially set at 1 & 1/2 turns out. Then adjust it to give good acceleration and top speed, while not closing the screw more than you need to. The low speed mixture screw is set at 3/4 of a turn out. Adjust that, to give a smooth idle. The 3rd screw, the idle speed screw, is set to give a low idle speed without stalling.

BLOWER only operates at half choke....then shuts off and can;t start again

your mixture screws probibly have to be adjusted.i have a homelite weed whacker and homelite leaf blower.
both had to be adjusted after i used them 6 or 7 times.theres a tool you can buy to move the screws.or you can be cheap like me and use a dremal tool with a cutting wheel on it and cut slots in to be able to adjust with a flat head.
turn the screws clockwise til there just seated,not too tight.then turn each one out counter clockwise to 2.5 turns and start adjusting from there.the first screw is the low setting and the second is the highs. i usally start with the highs.but u can do what you want. u can also youtube on how to adjust.

Rebuilt carb need air and idel mixture screw settings. Blower runs but only a few seconds and then will not restart.

air fuel mixture screw shoould have initial setting of two turns out from lightly seated,check unit make sure cylinder is tight to base they only have two screws holding them down,if 2 cycle motor has a vaccum leak they will not run properly,also check compression if you have gauge should have a least 100 psi to run properly.
