Question about Husqvarna "Chain Saw - 16" Bar, 3 Hp
142 chain saw. Starts but will not pick up when pull throttle then dies. Have changed spark plug air and fuel filters. Suggestions
Posted by Anonymous on
Check the fuel lines for hardness, cracking, splitting, or end rot. Check the muffler for plugging. Check the carburetor fasteners for tightness. Are you using fresh fuel mix? If the carburetor jets have been adjusted, try turning both CW to stops (lightly) then back out each CCW 1-1/2 turns. Engine should start and run--allow to warm up. Pull the throttle full on, and adjust H needle CW until the engine starts to speed up, but still 4-strokes. Proper adjustment is when the engine 4-strokes, but immediately 2-strokes when cutting. Let idle and adjust L CW for fairly smooth running, but still allows the engine to 'follow the throttle'. Hope this helps!

Remove, clean and reinstall the muffler and spark arrestor, if no better the "L" needle may need adjustment.
