Question about McCulloch 16 In 4.5 Hp Electric Chainsaw With Carrying Case MCC4516FK

Open Question

I have a McCulloch chain saw Model CS38. When I was using it the engine acted strained as it really slowed down then quit. Smoke came out of the right side opposite the muffler and I have been unable to restart it. I have even taken off the chain so there wouldn't be that resistance on it. Is there an easy solution? Thank You

The issue sounds just like a carburetor problem. I had a saw that did the same exact thing, and found that I hadn't been adjusting the carburetor properly for years. I managed to find the instructions on-line, and then it ran like a dream, just every time I store it, I have to go back through the motions again.

Let me know if you need adjustment guidance and I will see if I can dig up anything.

One of our group of experts suggested stuffing knotted, thin rope into the spark plug hole so that the piston could not rise all the way. The other way is to use an impact wrench (left-hand threads) to turn in direction of chain motion.

Carburetor Adjustment
There are no hard and fast settings.
A good initial starting point for the "H" and "L" needle valves are 1.5 turns CCW from lightly seated.
The "T" adjustment enters here (idle speed) and there is no initial setting without a tachometer, depending on age of your saw there may not be any initial "T" setting.
The "L" needle is primarily idle performance (not speed) and acceleration to full throttle.
The "H" is mostly performance at speed, but all are interconnected.


Start with a fresh mix of fuel. Put ALL of the old mix in any 4 cycle engine and start new. I suggest 50:1 regardless of what your manual says.
CW is leaner; to lean will destroy the saw. If over tightened closed (CW) the adjustment screw faces are easily marred; once marred adjustments are difficult to impossible to set properly.
Clean the air filter; adjusting with a dirty filter can cause a run lean condition once cleaned and the saw run.
Clean the spark arrestor and muffler; if the saw cannot exhale it cannot inhale.
Now we adjust for performance. The best performance adjustment procedure I have found follows.
Madsens Shop & Supply, Inc. Carburetor adjustment (All saws homeowner and professional are the same)
http://www.madsens1.com/saw%20carb%20tune.htm Read step 4 (allow it warm before making adjustments).
There are 2 wav (sound - idle & full - may not be highlighted) files that I find most helpful, I think you will too.
I am going to inject a little philosophy here. Undetected air leaks and defective fuel delivery systems account for most chainsaw failures. Constant adjustment of needle valves can easily camouflage more serious problems that result in burning up your saw. A sudden need for an adjustment is often indicative of a larger problem.
If push comes to shove a local saw shop (I prefer Stihl mechanics and do not own a Stihl) should be considered.

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

Does the chain turn freely by hand? Is it being oiled properly? Check the fuel filter, air cleaner, and muffler for plugging. Does 'feathering' the choke make any difference? If it helps, try turning the H jet needle CCW about 1/4 turn which should make it run more rich and 4-stroke until you are cutting which should immediately cause the engine to 2-stroke. Hope some of this helps!

What size chain do I need for a McCullough MacCat CS38?


Chains have three requirements...pitch, guage and number of links. The pitch is the distance on center between chain links, the guage will be one of three, .043, .050 or .063. To get the number of links, you have to count each link and spacer. If you are missing the chain, you may have to take the saw to a service center and have them tell you.

Fuel mix


Quick check with mfg (DAGS mcculloch) yields: 40:1 with their 2-stroke oil and 87 octane.
I've run one (with 14" bar) for years on same 50:1 mix I use in other saws with no problems- synthetic oil and regular gas. One of these saws is now 30 yrs.old. And ... no smoke-cloud, nor port/muffler mung.
With new saw, you might want to use more oil for first few hours. Just remember that doing so leans the fuel mixture.

Where do I find a replacement chain for my McCulloch Eager ****** 2318av chain saw (model # 600038-12)?


Your friendly neighborhood chainsaw shop can fabricate one in about 5 minutes. Take your existing chain for use as pattern.

If original 18" bar.

This can be easily crossed to other manufacturers chain. You might consider a more aggressive chain (dependent on your level of expertise). HTH

There is a McCulloch thread. Your saw is held in high regard. I’m quite sure some of the members will be willing to post some close up photos of the set up on their saws. HTH

a fix that sometimes works is to add kerosene to oil tank where the oil would go normally and rev saw several times with out load holding blade in down position over a piece of dry card board so you can see the oil spraying on the piece of cardboard careful of moving chain
