SOURCE: Need Gas/Oil Mixture

How tiny is the bottle? Don't follow the advice of the entire bottle to one gallon. Bottles come in different sizes. The correct mixture is 50:1. this equals 2.6 ounces of oil for each gallon of gas. You can do the math from there to match the size of your fuel can.

I hope this helps.

SOURCE: carburetor adjustment for Homelite 2 cycle engine

I have the same problem with my MightyLite 26cc Blower/Vac. If it does start it runs rough on full choke and stalls on 1/2 choke or run. I've tried everything, fresh fuel, Seafoam, etc. Nothing works. First time I used it the exhaust burned a hole in my brand new Carhartt hooded sweatshirt. Best solution, throw it away, never buy another Homelite product and tell anyone who will listen what a piece of junk Homelite products are.

A friend of mine gave me a zr series ,625cdv homelite weed eater and I can't figure out how to adjust the carb. Bought a new primer bulb it crank and run for a little bit but I have to idle it high

Screw in the HIGH and LOW needle valves. Then turn each one out 1 full turn, That should be a good starting point.
After engine is running Run engine at Full throttle. Loosen HIGH screw until the engines RPM slows a bit. When that happens Turn screw back in until it revs high and then just starts to slow again. You do not want the engine to run at it's highest RPM or it's not getting enough Lubrication It need to run Rich, that's why you screw the screw in a bit after the engine has reached it's highest RPM. Let it idle down . Then Accelerate hard, if it hesitates, loosen or tighten the LOW until it accelerates quickly with no hesitation.

Saw will not rev up to full rpm when you pull trigger it revs up to 1/2 to 3/4 throttle and starts cutting out.

Engine may be too worn or may have run out of oil at some point, compromising the bearings.

Have to adjust the high on the carb. should have, 3 screws, 2 that are together is your h for high, and L for low. the one by itself is for idle. when mackine is running, squeeze throttle and adjust the high til it clears up, if it stalls real fast, back counter clockwise while off, and try to restart it, if worse, go the other way. i do mine by 1/4 turns. keep count of turns in case your going the wrong way! hope this help s!

Why does homelite chainsaw runs wide open?

if your saying your saw runs full speed as soon as it starts , one of two things is happening :
(1) your low speed carb jet is too far open
(2) your throttle trigger has disconnected or become stuck from your carburetor and now the throttle blade inside carb is full open

Problems with starting i spite of strong battery. Can it be carburator problems? The cycle was nor active for 6 months and in very cold climate.

If you are using fuel with ethanol and it sat for six months, the carb jets and passages are gummed and clogged. Rather than an expensive teardown and manuel carb cleaning, I recommend putting 1/4 to 1/2 can of SeaFoam in the gas tank. Lock the front brake and rock the bike back and forth for a minute or two to mix it with the gas. Crank the engine and run at high idle for a few minuets, shut it off and let set giving the mixture time to work. Crank back up and repeat running at high idle.

Even if your gas doesn't have ethanol, it can gum up with storage that long. You can use a full can of SeaFoamto tank of fuel if necessary.

I recommend 1/4 can for 5-10 gallons as a normal additive for running.

24cc craftsman 2 stoke trimmer. took apart everything and cleaned. new fuel lines. cleaned air filter. ran fine saturday. now sunday bogs out while trying to throttle up or just stalls.

Low side adjustment on the carb needs to be opened up or the carb needs to be overhauled. To open up the low sie, find the carb jet adjustment screws. The screw closest to the cylinder is the low side. Turn the screw counter-clockwise 1/2 turn. You may need to romove tho plastic locks from the adjustment screws, or if it is fairly new, you may need to buy a special tool to use on these screws. The tool is available anywhere that sells Poulan parts. If adjusting the screws doesm't fix it, the carb will need to be overhauled or replaced. Check with . Replacement carbs are sometimes cheaper than an overhaul.
Good luck!

Setting carb on homelite chainsaw

Make sure that the air cleaner is not choked with sawdust. Turn both H and L jet screws CW to stops (lightly) then back out each 1-1/2 turns CCW. Start the engine and allow to warm up. Pull the throttle full on and adjust H CW so that the engine will speed-up somewhat, but still 4-stroking. Proper final adjustment is to be 4-stroking, but immediately 2-stroke when cutting. Allow to idle and adjust L so that the engine runs fairly smoothly, but will allow the engine to 'follow the throttle'. Set idle speed screw so that the chain doesn't move, but the engine keeps running. Hope this helps!
