16'" Wildthing wont Idle after turning the "t" throtle screw

I took of the side cover to fix the pull start rope and didn't realize I was unscrewing the throtle screw labeled "t". Now the chainsaw starts but, wont idle. Is all I have to do is screw in the "T" adjustment screw in all the way and back out one turn and start from their? I didn't adjust the other L&H screws. Thanks, Patrick

Screw it in and then back it out until it idles, may have to keep it running by giving gas and lettting off of gas until you find the correct idle speed

I have a homelite 3316c when it starts up it goes full throtle it doesnt idle right is there a idle screw


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.

Pull cord will not rewind


  • 1

    Turn the Homelite chainsaw so that the bar and chain are laying flat and the starter cover is facing up. Loosen the four starter cover screws by unscrewing them counterclockwise with the screwdriver.

  • 2

    Take the starter cover off of the engine. Turn the starter cover over to work on the pull starter. Pull the rope out about 6 to 8 inches.

  • 3

    Twist a loop into the end of the rope. Insert the intersection of the two ropes into the notch on the upper flange of the pulley. Rotate the loop back and forth until you notice the recoil spring has disengaged. Unwind the rope from the pulley. Cut off any old rope if you need to replace it with a new rope.

  • 4

    Unscrew the screw holding the pulley to the starter cover using the screwdriver. Take the pulley off the starter cover. Turn the pulley over and remove the recoil spring cassette from inside the pulley.

  • 5

    Inspect the spring inside the cassette to see if it is damaged or overstretched. Replace the recoil spring cassette if it is broken. Lubricate the post on the starter cover using about a dime-sized amount of engine grease.

  • 6

    Put the recoil spring cassette back into the pulley. Set the pulley onto the starter cover and tighten the screw down with the screwdriver. Wind the starter rope back around the pulley in a clockwise direction.

  • 7

    Leave about 6 to 8 inches of rope unwound. Form another loop at the end and insert the loop into the notch on the pulley. Rotate the loop back and forth until you notice the tension is set on the recoil spring.

  • 8

    Remove the loop and place the starter cover back over the engine. Pull the rope out 6 inches and tighten the starter cover's screws using the screwdriver. Release the rope and it should automatically retract

    Chain saw I bought last summer. The pull rope to start the saw does not retrack. Took the cover off and loosened the screw and it works, put cover back on and 2 pulls same thing. I've only used it 3...


    The fixing post for the pulley has become lower than the pulley for some reason, the fixing screw is now rubbing the pulley instead of bottoming out on the post, quick fix is to find a suitable washer the same diameter as the screw head, fit this between the post and the fixing screw.

    Troybilt chainsaw 20'' bar. will only run until primer fuel is burnt. Replaced gas filter, and soaked carb,and installed a carb.kit.Can`t find any vaccum leads, flywheel and key ok .Help thanks


    The idle screw may be turned all the way in on the carb adjuster which should be a very small screw in a 3/16 hole through the plastic cover on the side between the starter rope and the trigger on most saws. Bottom it out and then turn it back 1 and 1/2 turns. Have the saw on a low bench, so you can control it when she starts up - if the revs are too high the chain will spin up which can be dangerous. Now screw the idle down until the chain stops and the motor starts to stall, screw it out a little to get a running idle which will not stall but never starts the chain spinning up. Some have two screws, one for air during idle, the other for the gas during idle. They both should be out about one and a half turns which is industry standard and then you can fine tune from there, but usually only a half turn cw or ccw would be way too much difference from the standard positions.

    Hard to start Husqvarna 435


    reportedly you need to open up the low idle jet screw about 1/4 turn, takes an odd shaped tool to get at it, Husky sells this tool, or you can probably makeshift one from hard plastic tube... anyway, this is due to EPA issues, but once you increase the L adjustment 1/4 turn (counter clockwise, I believe), problem is said to go away.

    Husqvarna chainsaw carburetor adjustment


    Find the 2 screws. There will be a (h) high and (L) low. These are for hig rpms and low rpms. First tighten the screws. Then unscrew them about 1-1/4 turns. Then start the saw and let it warm up. Start with the high rpms first pull the trigger all the way then adjust the screw in 1/8 turns either way until it is running good at high rpms. Then work on the L rpms. Get the saw to idle then pull the trigger, there should not be any hesitation when going from L to H rpms. Just adjust the low same as the High. They have to work together so if the high is good and the low is not just right turn the h a small amount. If you have any more questions let me know

    Hi tchild, my name is Dennis and I will try to assist you with your problem.
    You can get the part from Poulan parts and it will take about 15 minutes to fix the first time eight minutes the second time. In addition I might add that to remove the centrifugal clutch and the sprocket, it unscrews from the crankshaft with a left hand thread. A little trick to remove anything from a crankshaft that could turn while you want to unscrew the item, Remove the spark plug and insert some rope into the cylinder for the piston to squeeze against and you will jam the piston without damage.
    Glad to be of assistance. Please rate the solution because I can learn from your rating. Thank you
