If the chain chatters it is to fast or the clutch needs repair. I think CCW is faster, make small adjustments, blip the throttle let it settle.
On the engine cover there are often 3 holes for needle valve adjustment. Idle is usualy marked "T".
If you have an Owner's Manual the location is usually displayed somewhere within. I could not find an on line OM. HTH

What is the initial carburettor adjustment for a mac 120 MCCulloch chainsaw?


Hi williamsc32...
Before you remove or try to adjust your low and high speed jets you should always count the number of turns it takes to lightly seat the idle mixture screw and high speed needle adjusting screws.
Be sure to write the number of turns down on a piece of paper so you will know how many turns from the seated position to open the jets when you go to reinstall them, or if you remove them for cleaning or replacement.
If you have aready tried to adjust them then the adjustments below should get it running for you for final adjustment when warm.
Normally you will adjust your idle jet to 1/2-3/4 turn open from the bottom seated position.
Then you will re-adjust the low speed of the engine when the engine is warm by turning the idle screw in or out till the engine runs smoothly at idle speed, around 1200 RPM.
The high speed jet is adjusted to 1 1/2- 1 3/4 open from the bottom seated position, after the engine is warm.
Then re-adjusted by turning the High Speed jet adjustment screw in or out till the motor runs smoothly at high speed.
Alway use the "lightly seated" method if you have not changed the screw settings.
Please take time to rate me

Can anyone help with fuel mix and starting instructions for McCulloch 2214av chainsaw please


Ok, always use good quaility teo stroke oil, from a manufacturer who actually produces a chainsaw, ie Husqvarna/Stihl/Jonsered etc, all of these oils should be run at 50-1, avoid oil makes you have never heard of.
Starting instructions are as follows, switch the red ignition switch too on ( up ) depress the primmer bulb as many times as it takes to 3/4 fill the bulb ( you cannot flood the engine if you over prime, it is better to over prime ) pull the blue choke fully out, crank the engine until it fires once ( it will only fire once, do not continue to crank the engine after it first fires with the choke still out ) now push the choke fully back in, crank the engine until it fires up and runs on fast idle,now blip the throttle trigger to diss engage the fast idle position, the saw should now drop down to idle.

I have McCulloch 11-600031D PRO MAC 55 08/73 to 03/77 IPL 92384A-R1. i got it running but it is hard to keep it running i screwed in both idle and mix all the way in i just don't know how much need to...


Typically the screws are seated gently then turned out 1 turn as a base adjustment. The saw should start & run, if not perfectly at this point. A little fine tuning is always nescessary. If you can't get it to run at these basic settings, a carburetor service is probably needed.

Stalls during idle


Try setting the idle speed screw CW a little (not the two jet screws) until the engine will continue to idle, but not turn the chain. If this doesn't seem to help, then adjust L jet screw about 1/8 turn CCW. Hope this helps!

The second hand McCulloch 120 chainsaw I purchased


I think the pre-adjust settings are to turn jets in all the way and back out 1.5 turns each. then:

You will find a Low and High adjustment screw. At idle turn the screw in or clockwise until the rps starts to decrease. Then start turning it out till you hit max idle rpms. Turn screw back in a quarter to half turn and it should be idling smoothly. Be careful here and get someone to hold saw if necessary but hold in throttle to full speed and do the same with high adjustment screw. turn it in till rpm starts to drop then back it out until you get to max rpm and it won't go any higher then turn it back in a half a turn.

Set the carb on 3516


Both the High and low speed jets need to be 1 1/2 turns open. Then fine tune from there.
