    There is a tool called carb adjusting tool. I just bought one for 5 dollars on ebay by searching Walbro tool. It is a "D" shaped tool made specifically for taking jets in and out. P.S. Walbro is the name of the manufacturer of homelite carbs you speak of.

My Homelite ZR10926 16-Inch 33cc Ranger it is starting, idling, it dies when I accelerate it. I assume is the carburetor, maybe ? thank you.


It probably is not getting enough fuel. Check the filter in the tank. If it has been sitting with stale gass this filter plugs up.
Try running the engine with some choke. If this helps, try adjusting the carburetor high speed screw.

Homelite chain saw model ut10522 engine starves


All late model saw engines (in the US at least) have special 'D' shaped jet screw heads that require a dealer-only special screwdriver. Check the fuel filter for plugging and the fuel lines for decay or other damage. If you feel the H jet setting is responsible, then you are stuck taking the saw to a servicing dealer for adjustment unless you are skilled at making such a tool yourself. Hope this helps!

How do i adjust the carb a homelite super2 chainsaw when i give it gas it quits but will idle


Check the fuel filter, air cleaner, and muffler for plugging. Inspect the fuel lines for decay/damage. Make sure that all of the carburetor fasteners are tight including those that hold the carburetor to the cylinder. Go to: http://www.drystacked.com for a helpful 12 page article on Walbro carburetor theory and troubleshooting. Pay particular attention to the location of the lower chamber gasket/diaphragm components. The two jet screws are likely to be 'D' headed which means that you need a special screwdriver to adjust them and servicing dealers are supposed to the only ones allowed to perform this adjustment (thanks to the EPA in the USA). Hope this helps!

Hi how to tune homelite 330 chain saw carby, idle


Before adjusting anything, check the fuel filter, air filter, and muffler for plugging. Check the condition of the fuel lines for decay or other damage. Tighten all carburetor fasteners. Make sure you have fresh fuel mix in the tank. Does the primer bulb pull fresh fuel into itself when pumped? Turn both jet screws CW to stops (lightly), then back out CCW 1-1/2 turns each. This is a basic setting and should allow the engine to start and run. Start the engine and allow it to warm up, then pull the throttle full on. Adjust H needle CW until the engine starts to speed up, but still 4-stroking. Proper final adjustment is when the engine 4-strokes unloaded, but immediately 2-strokes when cutting. Release the throttle and adjust L needle CW for fairly good idle, but still allows the engine to 'follow the throttle'. Adjust idle speed screw so that the chain stops turning, but the engine will continue to run. Hope this helps!

Icarburator adjustment


Before adjusting the jet screws to fix something caused by other factors, look for a clogged fuel filter, air cleaner, or muffler. Check the condition of the fuel lines and the fasteners on the carburetor. Make sure the primer button is soft and not cracked. These saws use a Walbro brand carburetor and an excellent article on troubles and repair can be found at: http://www.drystacked.com The pictures are out of focus and he neglects the pumper chamber action, but the theory is very helpful--especially the position of the lower chamber gasket/diaphragm. Hope this helps!

How to adjust high and low settings on carb for a homelite chains


Me know how! Want know who?

I would start with both the "H" and "L" needle valves at 1.5 turns CCW from lightly seated then adjust for performance as follows:
Carburetor Adjustment by Madsens.com
http://www.madsens1.com/saw%20carb%20tune.htm
  • CW is leaner; to lean will destroy the saw. If over tightened closed (CW) the adjustment screw faces are easily marred; 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.
  • There are 2 wav (sound - idle & full - may not be highlighted) files that I find most helpful, I think you will too.
If you have more questions or need additional help please reply below and I will get back to you. Thank you for using FixYa and Good Luck. HTH

The chain on my chain saw is slack.


The adjusting screw is usually found on the right side of the saw close to the bar, near the bottom. You will need to loosen the two nuts on the side that hold the bar tight. Loosen them until the bar lifts up and down (about 1/2") with your finger.

There should be a combination spark plug wrench and screwdriver that came with your saw. If not, use a slot screwdriverto tighten the chain while you hold the bar up with two fingers.

When adjusted properly, there should be no hanging slack in the chain when it is warm. It should rest just against the bar so that you can grasp it with gloves on and pull it toward you.

When it is tightened thusly, tighten the two side nuts while holding the bar up with two fingers. If you don't tighten the two nuts enough, it will loosen and the chain will have slack again shortly.

Remember that the hotter the chain gets, the looser it will be. Make sure your chains is getting plenty of bar oil. Never use regular motor oil.
