Idle should be adjustable , but if it was purchased in the u s of a since 2012 then sorry it's got a C.A.R.B. type carb on it ( google that acronym) and sorry fuel mixtures are not adjustable anymore the clean air folks took care of that for us! I thank them everyday for looking out for us all .

look on top of carb right next to cam that moves when you press throttle down , there you'll see a very small screw that's your idle adjustment

SOURCE: Leaf blower will not achieve full RPM's

try removing the muffler and scraping out any carbon build up in the exhaust mouth of the block. if that doesnt help you will probably need to replace the carb.

SOURCE: I relpaced the fuel lines on my Mccullough Eager ****** leaf blow

ok then these are the low and high speed adjusting screws. first make sure the spark plug is clean of buildup or new . what you need to do is first try to get it to idle with the low adj screw. now im not sure which ones which so try one and if it makes no difference during idle then try the other. start it if it dies turn the screw , repeat this until you get the right sound and steady idle.once you figure out the low screw trun it all the way clockwise then turn it counter about 2 turns. then tune the idle from here. you want it to have a steady sounding idle. now the idle sounds good use the high screw to adjust the throttle. give it about half throttle and turn the high screw until it sounds steady here. then go to full throttle and turn high screw until it sounds steady here. now it should sound steady at idle and throttle. and try not to trun the screws more than 1/8 to 1/4 turn at a time,especially the high, you dont want to blow it up. lemme know how it goes

SOURCE: I have a John Deere 2E leaf blower. Lately it has

The H (High Speed) and L (low Speed) should not typically need adjustment. What happens is the diaphragms get stiff and do not operate efficiently. If the unit is over 5 years old and/or the fuel is not completely drained with the unit run dry at the end of the fall, then I would suggest replacing the diaphragms within the carburetor. This along with spark plug change, air filter cleaning and a check of the muffler to insure it is not clogged is considered a basic tune-up.

I have a 5hp 2cycle snow blower. It revs too high. What should I do?


You can adjust the idle screw, u can also make the spring tension a little loose than before.. if someone removed the linkage, then it was reinstalled incorrect. Also your carburetor may have the air adjustment screw on the side of it. U turn that in short increments to adjust the air fuel ratio.

What does "h" or "l" stand for on a carburator adjustment screw ?


H is the high speed adjustment ( screw in to lean the mixture and increase the revs, screw out to richen and decrease revs ) I is the idle screw, this will adjust the tick over speed of the engine, you can also have a srew marked L this is to adjust the low speed running by leaning or richening the fuel mixture

Echo pb-620st will not crank


Simply use a srewdriver to adjust the mixture screw. Its located on the carburator. Clockwise is lean, counterclockwise is rich. If you can get the thing to idle, let it warm up first. Adjust the mixture lean until it just starts to sputter, then adjust it rich 1/2 turn. Test full throttle, if it sputters, you can adjust the mixture a little more rich so that it runs good at full throttle.

I would suggest steering away from investing in 2 cycle engines for a pawn shop, unless you can see them running. These little engines are very picky and they only run well if they are in good shape. If you cant get them to start easily, there is probably a lot of internal wear/damage and these engines are hard to find parts and are not cheap to fix.

Bad investments would include 2 cycle leaf blowers, trimmers, chainsaws, boat motors, and motorcycles that do not start easily. Believe me, they are a headache to fix.
