Most likely the reason for the failure to start when hot is worn piston rings. Do you have small amounts of oil coming out the exhaust? That's a good sign of worn rings. If qualified, replace your rings and bore out your piston sleeve. You'll be running like new and no more having to wait until it cools to finish the job.

Walter the above is a good answer, however often time people are dealing with older chainsaws, older saws that might not have good venting on the fuel tank... When hot unscrew the gas cap, see if there is pressure in the tank or the gas is boiling. That would have been my first answer. Walter what was the problem did you ever solve it?

Changed carb on a stihl 025 from a single set screw to a double set screw . what settings do i need to start initially

on the needle setting closest to engine(air) it is turn clockwise till it stops, then open it up counter clockwise 1 turn. The second adjustment needle, should be turned clockwise till it stops, then opened up 1 1/2 turns. Adjust the second or gas, until your engine sounds like it is running it's best.

What us the 'H' and 'L' on my chainsaw and how does it work

There are 3 screws on the carb the idle screw usually marked with a T or an I, this screw contacts the throttle spindle and opens it to increase the idle speed, the L screw is a fuel screw, so by screwing it out ( anti clockwise ) will increse the fuel flow through the carb, the screw will adjust the idling, and acceleration up to half throttle, the H screw is also a fuel screw, this will adjust from half throttle to maximum revs, the max revs should be set with a tacometer to the manufacturers fast no load speed, small amounts of movment on boyh screws will make a big difference.

Poulan 446t Will start, won't continue to

The diaphragm in the carb is likely ruined from the gas gelling onto it. This will put pinholes in it and then it won't work properly. Pick up a carb kit and rebuild it (if parts available) and then you should be good to go. If you can't rebuild the carb, a replacement will run you 30 bucks or more.

What are the basic carb setting for a homelite ht21 classic hedge trimmer?

As a general rule, it's always best to start at 1 1/2 turns for each adjusting screw. Screw them all the way in, turning them clockwise until snug. Then back them both out counter-clockwise 1 1/2 turns. This will get you in the ball park. You should first, adjust the High screw, 1/4 turn(s) in or out, as needed. After you have adjusted the H screw, then adjust the Low screw in the same manner.

Good Luck!

How do you adjust the carborator

If this is a late model saw, the adjustment screws have 'D' heads that need a dealer-only 'D' screwdriver. If the screws have slotted heads, then turn both screws CW to stops (lightly), then back each 1-1/2 turns CCW. This is a basic setting, so the engine should start and run. Start the engine and allow to warm up, then pull the throttle full on. Turn H CW until the engine speeds up, but still 4-stroking. When properly adjusted, the engine should 4-stroke, but immediately 2-stroke when cutting. Allow to idle and adjust L CW for fairly smooth running, yet allow the engine to 'follow the throttle'. Adjust idle speed screw to stop the chain from turning, yet the engine keeps running. Hope this helps!
