Question about Poulan Pro Chain Saw 46cc 20"
I need to readjust may chainsaw carburetor and would like some helpful tips.
You normally have 3 screws - idle speed - slow running and fast running.
First take care as if it runs faster than idle speed that chain will be whipping around also.
Second you have to determine what is the problem. Is it faulty at low speeds or high speeds ? or won't it idle.
If it has turn stops fitted to the screws you only have a small adjustments either way.
If it won't idle, try turning in the idle screw a half turn - until the chain just starts to move slowly.
If its dying at slow speeds, get is going and slow turn the slow screw out until it starts to run a bit rough then turn it back in to the point where its running smoothly.
Bad fast speed can be caused by simple things such as a blocked muffler ( insects too - I had one blocked off by a mudnest wasp) - otherwise get it running at full and adjust the fast screw as per the slow one - out till its rough then back in slowly until its smooth.
Suggest before all this tho that you get it running with the cover off the carby and then give it a good squirt of carby cleaner first - it may just clear out any 'poop' thats there.
(Have faith even tho I have a Poulan with a carb that refuses to run on anything but carby cleaner. I have pulled it apart a few times and renewed all the perishable bits buts its a real pig)
