Question about Garden
Hi i have a esco model 162 chainsaw i wonder would you be able to help me; What way do you turn the screws on the carburetor
The adjuster screws on a chainsaw carb are fuel screws,not air screws, so by unscrewing them anti clockwise will richen the mixture, there are normally three screws, an engine idle screw, this will operate against the throttle spindle, a screw marked L, this will adjust the fuel mixture from idle to half throttle including acceleration, and a screw marked H, this will ajust the fuel mixture from half throttle to full revs, as this will increase the maximum revs it is very importent not to exceed the manufacturers no load speeds, so a engine tacometer should be used to check this, over speeding can seriously damage the engine.

There is too much information to relay so I would suggest you go to Searspartsdirect.com and type in your saw number and on the right side there is an area for a manual. You will need to use your email addy and select a password for this but it is free. You can view or download the manual and the area you need is on page 15. Let me know if this won't work and I will copy and retype info requested.

The tool you need is available from Randy's Engine Repair, on his E-Bay store. The price is about $10., plus $3. shipping. Phone for Randy's is (937) 927-5665. It is usually busy.
Ebay item number is: 390025452838. Buy it online. I got mine about a week after I ordered it.

this is called a california carb and these screws are made this way because they don't want you to do any adjustment,you can try to remove the carb and clean it yourself,i have had some luck(if its not too dirty) if you can get it started and then keep spraying in wd-40 in the carb it may pull the obstruction thru and melt the varnish out of the carb caused by the oil/gas mixture,also clean out the reed port on the exhaust as it carbons up over time and can cause back-pressure on the exhaust side

Testimonial: "This explains the "california carb" but there must be a way to adjust. I am thinking about cutting slots in the screws with by Dremel."
