Clean the air filter and spark arrestor (muffler). Try turning the "H" needle 1/8 turn CCW and retry. no better turn it CW 3/16 and try again.

This is a very good adjustment explanation.
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.

If problem persists reply (below) and we will continue. HTH

Jcb jz70 lacks power

Sounds to me like you have a hydraulic lever or pedal open and its dead heading against a closed port. Possibly to an attachment line. I'm not sure about the JCB on this, but if you can put other attachments on the unit, there has got to be an actuating lever or pedal to open the attachment lines for actuation.

My bmw 318 51 plate stalls randomly. it lacks power more often than not. it can just cut off both at cruse or town driving. when this happens it will take about 15mins to start. help please

When was last tune up (30k service aka "Inspection II")? Plugs, all fluids & filters - especially fuel filter? I'd start there and run a good fuel system cleaner through it (Techron, STP, etc..)

I have a Semi-Automatic 2005 BMW e46 318i. The engine randomly cuts out (stalls) when decellerating, coming to a stop, or when stopped. Other than this problem the car drives fine, and the engine starts up...

The problem you are having sounds suspiciously like the torque converter is not disengaging to allow your engine to spin freely until you are ready to accelerate.If when decelerating or coming to a stop you feel a jerking sensation similar to driving a vehicle with a manual transmission and bringing the vehicle to a stop without depressing the clutch, then the problem you are having is faulty Torque Converter Control Solenoid or a bad Torque Converter itself. If you have any other questions please contact me here. Good luck.
