Often the problem is the fuel filter or leak in the fuel hose and EVEN more likely is the fuel pump diaphram and check valves in the carb need replacement. The diaphram uses vacuum pulses to pump the fuel and the diaphram does deteriorate, especially with teh alcohol in many fuels now.

How do i set air on husky 435 saw to fix boggy runnin


Adjust the fuel and air mixture screws while the saw is running... you'll find that "sweet spot"... it just takes a little patience! Small adjustments... If you over adjust and the saw quits running or starting, GENTLY turn both screws in all the way (don't damage the needle valves or seats) and turn both out one and a quarter (1 1/4) turns out. The saw should start, then adjust from there.

Carb ajustment

Only Info I see is "Homelite Chain Saws" - not much to go on.
Most saws have two carb adjustment screws, Hi, and Lo.
Assuming the saw will start and run enough to warm up, then
adjust the Lo screw in, clockwise, until the motor starts to slow down,
turn only about 1/8 turn at a time. From the point where it starts to slow down, turn it out about 1/4 turn. This should give you a decent idle. Now pull the throttle, and see what happens.
A - Saw runs up to speed, but dies off, or starts to slow on it's own.
turn Hi idle screw out about 1/4 turn.
B - Saw speeds up, but runs sluggish, fat - not real hi end.
Turn Hi screw IN, about 1/8 or so, and try again, or adjust
while running at full throttle. (best way)
IF it won't run well, try turning both screws all the way in to seat them, then come back out about 1-1/2 to 2 turns. this should get you in the ballpark to set things up as above.

Once the saw is running well, adjust the idle screw to a smooth idle but slow enough that the chain stops moving.

Stay safe

Even though i have rebuilt the carb on my husqvarna 240e saw its a zama carb and it still isint doing right it will crank up and give it gas and it dies, a person told me that the 2 cycle carburetors have...

It will be set at base settings, you will need to fine tune from there, the mixture screwsrequire a special tool to adjust them part no. 530035560 the screw heads have a star not a screw driver slot, max free running speed should not exceed 12500 +- 500 rpm they are not the easiest machine to tune due to the X Torque cylinder design.

How do i take the oil tank off a 41 cc husky chain saw

I guess we are talking about the Husqvarna 41/141, start by removing the guide bar and chain, remove top cover, disconnect and remove the throttle wire, remove the fuel hose from the carb, use a 4mm allen key and remove the front anti vibration rubber screw ( drive side, bottom front r/h, holding the alloy chain catcher ) now remove the top anti vibration rubber screw with a cross head screw driver ( top l/h holding an orange plate ) now remove the four screws securing the starter cover, two screws are into the plastic crankcase, and two are into the anti vibration rubbers, the fuel tank should now pull out from the bottom of the saw withe top handle still connected, make sure the fuel hose feeds out of the crankcase as you pull the tank away.

What is the factory setting for the throttle and low & high screws for a Husq 41 (1994)

Workshop Manual for a Husky 357XP/359 (2006 - I will wager yours is similar) follows:
The Husky workshop manual on Appendix A (USA, this probably does not apply to your vintage saw) says "H" 3/4 turn CCW from lightly seated. "L" 1.5 turns CCW from lightly seated.
Page 36 (every other nation on earth) 1 turn CCW from lightly seated for both the "H & L" needles. There is no recommended initial "T" setting. (from manual) "The idling speed is correctly set when the engine runs smoothly in all positions and there is a clear margin to the speed at which the chain starts to move".
These are initial settings and the saw needs to be adjusted for performance. Start with a clean air filter and a fresh fuel mix. I could not find an OM for a 1994, a 1995 says mix @ 50:1 per Husky (1 gallon of premium fuel to 2.6 ounces of quality 2-cycle oil).

This explains performance carburetor adjustment better than I can:
Carburetor Adjustment by
CW is leaner; to lean will destroy the saw. If over tightened closed (CW) the adjustment screw faces are easily marred; 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.

There are 2 wav (sound - idle & full – may not be highlighted) files that I find most helpful, I think you will too. Good Luck. HTH.

I need to know the carb adjustments for a Husky 65. I need to know how far each screw should be turned out on the carb to get it to run so that I can fine tune the saw.

Start with 1.5 turns on the low speed screw and 1.5 turns on the high speed screw. You can fine tune from this setting.

Saw want stay running. have to continually restart

TRy setting the I screw on the side of the carb clockwise a half turn. As saws get older the fuel pump diaphreagm in the Carb stiffen and are not as pliable as they were when new. You may need to put a new set of diaphragms and gaskets in the carb. Any stihl dealer can get them for you.

I have a Husqvarna 240 Chain saw. It hasn't been used that much. It is very difficult to start. When running it is a great saw. Runs well under power, nice saw for limbing. The book says to adjust carb use...

Before you adjust the screw, try either, opening or closing the gap on the plug.This will adjust the timing, ever so slightly.
The other choice is to adjust the space betwen the contact, and the magneto.
It is very rare indeed, that the screws on the carb require adjustment.
That should sort it out.

Carb trouble

I presume you mean lo and hi speed screw. Not sure of Huskys but most saws suggest you begin with 1 full turn open and adjust from there.
