How do i adjust carburator

I have attached a video from YouTube donyboy73. In it, he adjusts a carburetor for a Poulan 2150.
It won't matter which model saw you are adjusting, they would all have the same screws.

I hope this helps.

How do you adjust the carborator on a 2.5 stihl chainsaw?

Most Stihl carburetors built after 2000 have limiter caps that prevent much adjusting. the standard for adjustable carburetors is 1 turn out on both high and low then set rpm of idle and high end to specs.

If you need to adjust the engine to get it running there is a problem somewhere else in the systems.
see a dealer like for help.

good luck

My poulan chainsaw 2.5 ci farmhand boggs out when choke is turned off?

Check for plugged fuel filter, hard/cracked/rotten fuel lines, plugged muffler and air cleaner, or loose fasteners on the carburetor. If no help, dismantle the carburetor and check the lower rubber diaphragm for hardness or cracking. Make sure to have fresh fuel mix in the tank. If the L jet needle has a slotted-head, a small screwdriver can be used to back out the adjustment CCW about 1/4 to 1/2 turn. If the adjustments have 'D' heads, you will need to take it to a servicing dealer that has the proper tool. Hope some of this helps!

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!

Poulan 295 farm boss chainsaw


Try to adjust the air and gas intake pin. It is a screw type dial usually found sticking out the carburetor. You are tuning your carburetor, so you will have to test different adjustments until you get your desired running idle and power. I suggest you start with adjusting the air intake screws to decrease air supply going to the cumbustion chamber, It will probably make the chainsaw run when you give it a throttle.

Keep me updated
