Question about Husqvarna "Chain Saw - 16" Bar, 3 Hp

2 Answers

I have a husqvarna 51 which cannot be adjusted to get a high speed to turn the chain. I have rebuilt carb, checked the mag (coil), replaced the rubber connector at the intake, and still cannot get the adjustment on the high side of carb. When running fuel seems to be comming out of the exhaust and breather.

Sounds to me like the flote in ur carb is sticking open and is the reson your geting the raw fule out the exoust and air filter.this would also more than explain not being able to get into the power band.

What the proper carb settings for husqvarana 51


The initial fuel mixture settings are 1-1/2 turns from seated on each.
  1. Set at best mixture after running,
  2. Set Idle speed at 2500 rpm
  3. Then for best at full throttle and not exceed 12500 rpm.
  4. If the engine want to go above 12500 rpm enrich the high mixture a little to limit the speed.

Poulan chainsaw, I rebuilt the carb with all new everything. Now it will start with choke all the way out. Idles really high. If I push choke in, it dies instantly. The hi-lo and Idle is off I know for...


get it running on idle,adjust the idle down till it runs hairy,then adjust low speed mixture screw till you get it highest revs,then keep repeating that till you get it idling normal.rev saw up max revs,adjust high speed jet, in or out till you get max revs,then screw out one quater of a turn.That lets enough fuel thru to cool the sparkplug tip..If thats no good,redo the carbi.Check the tiny filter under the needlevalve hole.Check the needlevalve diaphragm height.recheck gaskets are right way round

I have a series 51 husky saw. it starts and runs normally until it gets up to operating temps. then it stalls out and either refuses to restart or just won't restart until it cools down again....


sounds like air fuel mixture screws are out of adjustment..start with the on marked (L)..this is the low speed(idle) adjustment...turn it in all the way just until it stops..but be gentle..then you wnat to turn it out 1 1/2 turns as a starting point..start the engine and adjust it until you get a smooth idle...next, with the saw running, pull the trigger and you should have a smooth response from slow to fast...you can adjust the (H) screw until you get good high speed operation...if these adjustments don't fix the problem thenm yoou may need to have the carb rebuilt( a carb kit is usually only 15-30 dollars)

My husqvarna 178 keeps cutting out on full throttle have tried to adjust the L and H settings with no success any ideas?


As far as i remember Husqvarna never produced a model 178, however if adjusting the mixture screws does not help there is either a fuel blockage in the fuel filter in the tank ( replace filter ), or the fuel screen in the carb ( strip clean and service carb ), check the fuel hose hose for splits or cracks, asthis will greatly effect the running

I have a husqvarna 55. I put in a new carb, coil,


Preset both needles about 1-1/2 to 2 turns CCW from CW stop. Set H needle first after warm-up. At high speed, engine should 4-stroke with no load, but smooth out with light load(cutting wood). Set idle speed so that it will keep running, then adjust L needle so that engine tries to follow the throttle, but idles fairly smoothly. Readjust idle speed so that the clutch is not trying to drive the chain.

Husqvarna 435 wot run at full speed runs at idle fine and looks like u need a special tool for the high low carb adustment


On that model the low adjustment may be factory set, and the adjustment screw is replaced with a roll pin. The high adjustment has a cover on it that can be prised free revealing the screw beneath. Turn screw all the way in (clockwise) GENTLY dont overtighten only to when you feel slight resistance on the screw. then back out 1 1/2 turns. This is the base setting. Turn at 1/8th turn either way until good high speed rev is obtained, but no further in than 1 1/4 turns out, or you will run the saw lean and cause damage. Check and replace your plug if fouled at all.
