Question about Garden
On a lot of weedeaters there is a holddown nut collar that
secures the weedeater throtlle cable to the motor housing . if you removed the cable from the carbuerator and loosened this collar
you can adjust the idle speed by adjustng the collar back and forth
towards and away from the carbuerator . Simple adjustment to a major headache.

Without removing them and slotting the heads on them, a special tool to turn them is available. They have them on E-bay and sell for about $10 and up...but be careful messing with the factory settings as the carb is quite sensitive to change, unless it is so worn that it needs to be rebuilt.

Hi montex124, I will try to help. In the past few years carb makers have been making changes. Some carbs have no adjustment at all, the ports are all fixed inside the carb. Other carbs have only the idle speed mixture screw that can be adjusted, like yours seems to have. Is this screw you mention at the top and completely outside of the carb to adjust the throttle? If it is it's probably the idle speed screw which can be adjusted to any idle speed you want and has nothing to do with the air fuel mixture but If it is right next to the idle mixture screw, it might be the high speed mixture screw but is capped so it can't be adjusted. The low and high speed mixture screws should be marked next to each screw H and L.
The 1 1/2 turns suggested is sometimes just right but other times has to be adjusted, so you can try adjusting it to get your idle but maybe adjust the idle speed screw first to get a higher RPM so it doesn't stall on you. Like I said earlier it just adjusts the throttle, and is like when you are using it, and giving it gas as they say. I hope this helps just a bit. Regards and good luck. Get back to me if you need more help or just let me know how you did. Denis.

SOURCE: Weed Eater PE550...What is the
Soft seat the set screw and back out 1 1/2 turns. This is the standard to start adjustments from. Set the low speed one first, then the high. With it running and warm, couple of minutes, turn in until starts to run rough, then turn out til is starts to run rough, then set in the middle of those two points. Go to the other and repeat procedure.
