Engine dies when throttle engaged, assume carb needs adjusted, how to do that?


I'm not familiar with your brand of machine, BUT...

This symptom usually is not an indicator for a need for a carb "adjustment," but instead, it indicates a need to clean-out "gum" and "varnish" in the TINY passages [called "galleries"] inside your carb!!!!!

The gum and varnish problem is caused by leaving old, stale fuel in the carb for long periods of time.

Can get it to run but snap throttle it boggs down and some times dies tryed changeing fuel cap with a bran new one tryed ajusting mix screws new plug gets bettter but problem still there


Check the fuel filter, air cleaner, and muffler for plugging. Check the condition of the fuel lines for decay or other damage. Check for spark at the plug--it should be blue and snappy (gapped 0.020"). If it looks weak, try a fresh plug first--if still weak, remove the left side engine cover to expose the flywheel and ignition module. Turn the flywheel magnets under the ignition module, insert a thin business card into the pole gaps, loosen the module screws to allow the module poles to contact the magnets. Tighten the screws, and rotate the flywheel somewhat to remove the business card. Rotate the flywheel one complete turn to make sure the pole gap does not close up further. Reassemble and test for spark again. This process seems to have fixed a lot of Poulan saw problems. Finally, turn both carburetor jet screws CW to stops (lightly), then turn each 1-1/2 turns CCW. Start the engine and allow to warm up. Pull the throttle full on, and adjust H needle CW until the engine starts to speed up, but still 4-stroking. Correct adjustment is when the engine still 4-strokes when running free, but immediately 2-strokes when cutting. Release the throttle and adjust L needle CW until the engine idles fairly smoothly, but will still allow the engine to 'follow the throttle'. Adjust the idle speed screw so that the engine continues to run, but the chain doesn't try to turn. Hope this helps!

What are the carb. setings and where do you get the tool to adjust?


A basic preset adjustment is CW to stops (lightly), then CCW each 1-1/2 turns. The engine should start and run, but will 4-stroke. Allow to warm up, open the throttle, and adjust H CW till the engine speeds up, but still 4-stroking. Final adjustment is when the engine will 4-stroke, but immediately 2-stroke when cutting. Release the throttle and adjust L CW so that the engine idles fairly well, but will allow the engine to 'follow the throttle'. The problem with late model saws is that the EPA has mandated tamper-resistant carburetor adjustment screws which have 'D' shaped heads. Only authorized service dealers are supposed to have this tool. It's possible to drill into the end of a 1/4" steel rod, saw off part of the hole on one side and weld a small plate over the cut to make the 'D'. The big problem with this is getting a screw out to take measurements! Also, the recess in the carburetor just barely allows the 1/4" rod. Hard to say if this helps any! You may be stuck with taking the saw to a dealer to get it adjusted. Good luck!

Poulan saw wont run


Clean the muffler spark arrestor screen and check the cylinder port for carbon build-up at the upper edge. Try presetting both carburetor H and L adjustments (from lightly CW stops) 1-1/2 turns CCW each. Start the engine and allow to warm up. Pull the throttle wide open and adjust H CW until the engine speed increases, but still 4-stroking. Correct setting is when the engine 4-strokes, but immediately 2-strokes when cutting. Allow to idle and adjust L for smoother running, yet allows the engine to 'follow the throttle'. Set idle speed to keep the engine running, but doesn't try to move the chain. You may have to look closer at your carburetor if the above doesn't help. Go to:

for an excellent article (but poor pix) on Walbro carburetors, but related to most all 2-stroke carburetors. Hope this helps!

I had to replace all my gas line on my Poulan 446t i need someone that knows how they hookup


Typical fuel system and a couple of tips. Leave the carburetor connections a little long so they can be swapped if need be. I think the upper most connection goes to the bleeder.

I think this is an IPL for your pole saw: (there are others, this may not be your saw):
http://www.ordertree.com/modelinfo/PWE/PP446T-Gas-Pole-Pruner/75.PP446T-Gas-Pole-Pruner.1.59.1.html
The IPL (exploded parts list) for your saw is the only detail for fuel line routing and it is sketchy at best; components are listed but may be on different illustrations.

I need info on a Poulan Pro 445 fuel line routing


I'm so confused. This is reported as a Poulan and McCulloch pole saw, which one? Is it a pole saw? That is the only 445 Poulan I can find. It is reported as an electric but has a fuel routing problem.

If it is a Poulan Pro gas pole saw it is here: PP445 Gas Pole Pruner
The fuel system routing is terrible, but it is all there is.
Fuel Routing follows:
Tank to carburetor (hose in tank with filter on free end)
Carburetor to primer (primer draws fuel from the tank through the carb)
Primer to fuel tank (returns any excess fuel to tank when pushed) HTH

What is the walbro chain saw carburetor adjustment for a


There is no set adjustment on any chain saw. If it were that simple there would be no need for adjustments. The problem is that most equipment manufactured in the past 10 years can not be adjusted by the user. Carburetors are now equipped with either adjustment limiters which limit the adjustment to less than half a turn or with adjustment screws that require a special tool to make the adjustment. More than likely you will have to take it to an authorized dealer for those adjustments.

If you do have an adjustable carburetor, then gently close both needles and open each on 1 full turn. This should allow the engine to start and the final adjustments can be made at that point. If it still will not start then open each needle 1/8 to 1/4 turn and try again. If this still does not work then most likely your carburetor needs a good cleaning and a rebuild kit.

Craftsman chain saw only runs short time


Craftsman is made by Poulan.
How old is the saw? Have you checked for split fuel hoses? Change the cc to model number (2.2cc Craftsman is often Model 2200 Poulan) and try to find an IPL http://www.ordertree.com/cms/illustrated-parts-list/9788.html. This will show hose routing. As a last resort you may try the "Chainsaw forum here http://www.arboristsite.com/. These are good guys but you will be flamed for buying a homeowner saw.
Lou
I'd put the filter back on.
