You don't set the air flow, you set the fuel rate. There is typically a plastic screw in the back that supplies air pressure to push the fuel in. Clockwise will increase fuel flow. You will need to adjust until you find the sweet spot of good heat with no black smoke.

My remington 870 is suddenly not loading shells from the tube. What could be the problem

It could be that the spring in the ammo tube is not strong enough to push them far enough back to clear the tube. Have you added any type of accessorys to the receiver like a side saddle, scope, etc? If you have changed the tightness of any of the screws or bolts (such as you would replace or adjust for a side saddle), it can bind up the action and prevent the free movement of the shells. Is it a new weapon? Is it propperly lubricated?

Does a Remington 3.0 HP 300 with #114732-01s have a chain tension and screw. I do not have the manual and can not see where a chain tension screw would go.

The part number is Remington's and cannot be interpreted. What is the saw model number (reply below please)?
See the 2 holes near the heel of the bar (each side of the slot)? That is where the adjuster fits. I do not recall any Remington with an "Intenz" type bar (tensioner embedded in the bar).

If you have more questions or need additional help please reply below and I will get back to you. Thank you for using FixYa and Good Luck. HTH

The clipper blade adjustment on my Remington Hair Clipper, model HC-8017 (a black plastic adjustment arm) broke. Is it possible to get a replacement part?

The part that you require is not available for budget models like the HC-8017. You will need to purchase a new clipper or find an old one (ebay?) that you can buy cheaply for parts.
If you decide to replace your HC-8017 clipper, you will find them for sale at

Chain fell off my remington chainsaw, easiest way to put it back on?

Adjust the bar in until you can get the chain back on it and then adjust the bar out until the chain is snug but still can be turned by hand. hope this helps you...

Idle speed adjustment

While looking at the engine from in front of the car with the hood up..
Locate the TBI assembly ( follow the air intake tub from the cor support back. It leads directly to it ). Next look on the lower left side of the TBI just above the throttle linkage connection to the TBI.
you will see what looks like a little molded bullet sticking off the side with a screw sticking out of it making contact with the linkage assembly. On the back side of that little bullet you will see a torques head type screw head. adjust that forwards to increase idle speed or back it off to lower idle.
If you have a high idle condition the chances are it is not due to the idle set screw. Its more then likely either deteriorated vacum lines, deteriorated TBI gasket or a bad Air Idle Control Motor ( IAC ).
If you adjust the screw and nothing happens worth noting then check the vacum lines and replace. If nothing happens still then change the TBI gasket where it mounts to the intake.
If that doesnt do it then your left with the more costly option of changin out the IAC for a new one. They run from $75 - $125 depending on where you shop.
If after you change the IAC and it is still acting out then you may have an intak emanifold leak, or a head leak.
