Question about Garden

1 Answer

Poulan 1950 I have a low and high carb. adj. but they are restricted by a plastic covering over the adjustments. The plastic restrictors can be removed. I would like to set the carb. adjustments up like it is suppose to be coming out of the box. I cleaned the carb., replaced fuel lines and primer bulb and am having a hard time starting. I just got the saw so I don't have any history. I had it started a couple of times but ends up dying out and then difficult to start. I thought if I started with initial setting then adjust low 1/4 turn out until I get results then it would be downhill. What do you suggest? Joe

How to adj the crab on a poulan chainsaw

if the engine is in good shape..screw in both carb jets adjusting screws till they seat lightly, then back them out 1 1/2 turns, srew in the throttle adj screw a turn and start the motor,,warning if the chain is on make sure the blade isnt likely to touch anything when the engine starts as you will have to have the brake off to get started and adjusted. With the engine running, adjust the throttle srew until it is idling just above shutting off speed, then adjust the "L" low speed jet to get the best idling speed without srewing it in much, reset the throttle srew, then , while trying to accelerate suddenly each time, open the Low jet a little at a time until the machine accelerates smoothly without hesitation. Reset the throttle srew to a position that the chain stops running at idle and check again that the acceleration is without hesitation ( usually with "L" jet about 1/4 turn out more than best idling). The high "H" jet can now be set to give the best power while cutting a block of wood.

Cannot take valuable time off to have the fuel mix adjusted. Need the tool !!

those carb adj. screws are very small. I was recently looking at this myself, it was recommended to me to heat a small screwdriver then place agains the plastic screw. This was an ingenious way to now have a tool to adjust the carb mixture. It worked for me, just thought I would advise with that. I hope it helps.
