There's a low speed screw and a high speed screw. There is also a tickover/idle screw. Its possible this is just screwed in too far. The high and low screws may have tamper proof covers on for emissions regs. Remove the top cover and you should see the screws on the side of the carb. H&L are side by side, idle is on the linkage to throttle trigger.

Adjust H,L and T from the carb.When the engine is warm check the spark from the sparkplug:It has to be a strong violet spark(not flame).Disassembly the carb and carefully clean it.Check the fuel pump(it should be tighten not bended),Check the fuel filter and air filter.;the gas tank ventil and the fuel hose.

My homelite 3316c chainsaw it seems the idle is off when i start it it runs full throtle

I would think that either throttle is hung open where the choke mechanism didn't release it or the throttle butterfly is missing.

Idles wide open

Sounds like the inner cable is too short, what you can do is gently snip off a peice
of the outer cable where it anchors, this will make the inner longer.

Need to know best way to adjust carb to get maximum performance on my homelite XL12

Regarding the adjustment procedure you generally start your low and high mixture screws at one turn from seat, or slowly turn them in all the way until they bottom out and then back them out one full turn. You will adjust the high speed mixture screw at full throttle and get the median point between too rich (loads up) and too lean (dies out). You will want to do the same thing with the idle mixture screw, just adjust at idle rpm. You will also adjust the low idle mixture screw to give you a smooth transition from idle to throttle up. Once this is obtained, you adjust the third or idle speed screw low enough so the chain does not turn at idle rpm but high enough so the saw doesn't cut off. Hope this gets you going.

Have a 18" power chain saw.

Fuel restriction could be dirty in tank filter, or high idle screw needs to be adjusted. Do this by turning it counter clock wise 1/8 turn at a time start and check for improvement after each adjustment.
