McCullough chainsaw runs backwards at start up in idle. What is the cause ?


2 cycle engines can do this. The engine backfires when starting and it runs in the wrong direction. Shut it down and restart it.

I have a 18" mcculloch mac 5 evolution Chainsaw


You should run the saw on a 50-1 fuel oil mix, with an oil from a known chainsaw manufacturer and recommended for 50-1, this machine was an Italian built product sold under many different model names, Titanium 460,Partner 538, California, i am sure if you surf the net you will find one. If you cant find one post me your e mail address and i will send you one.

How to adjust carby settings after rebuilding. McCulloch Eager Be


Turn both jet needles CW to stops (lightly), then back out each CCW 1-1/2 turns. This is a basic setting that should allow the engine to start and run. Start the engine and allow to warm up, then pull throttle full on. Adjust H needle CW until the engine starts to speed up, but continues to 4-stroke. Proper setting is when the engine 4-strokes unloaded, but immediately 2-strokes when cutting. Release the throttle and adjust L needle CW for better idle, yet allows the engine to 'follow the throttle'. Adjust idle speed screw so that the chain stops turning, but the engine continues to run. Hope this helps!

Starts, idles and runs but quits after a few seconds of cutting


Check the air cleaner and muffler for plugging. One screw adjusts the idle stop (idle speed) position and the H and L jet screws set fuel mixture for high speed and idle speed mixture respectively. Turn both jet screws CW to stops (lightly) then back each out CCW 1-1/2 turns. This is a basic setting and should allow the engine to start and run. Start the engine and allow to warm up. Pull the throttle full on and adjust H CW until the engine starts to speed up, but 4-strokes. Correct adjustment is when the engine 4--strokes running free, but immediately 2-strokes when cutting. Release the throttle and adjust L needle CW until the engine idles fairly well, but allows the engine to 'follow the throttle'. Adjust the idle speed screw so that the chain stops turning, but the engine will continue to run. Hope this helps!

I have a McCulloch 3516 chainsaw and need advice on how to adjust the carburator. It starts but runs for a short time and dies.


You say runs a short time, seconds or minutes ? Seconds could be carb setting, minutes could be fuel mix ratio. let me know.

My mcCulloch mini mac 25 starts, runs, and cuts, but when it warms up it dies and will not restart


It sounds like the fuel cap is clogged. The fuel cap must be able to breathe in order for the carburetor to operate properly.

One way to be sure that it is the fuel cap is: The next time the chainsaw starts to die, loosen the cap for a second or two, it should start running properly again.

The second hand McCulloch 120 chainsaw I purchased


I think the pre-adjust settings are to turn jets in all the way and back out 1.5 turns each. then:

You will find a Low and High adjustment screw. At idle turn the screw in or clockwise until the rps starts to decrease. Then start turning it out till you hit max idle rpms. Turn screw back in a quarter to half turn and it should be idling smoothly. Be careful here and get someone to hold saw if necessary but hold in throttle to full speed and do the same with high adjustment screw. turn it in till rpm starts to drop then back it out until you get to max rpm and it won't go any higher then turn it back in a half a turn.
