Most chainsaws are built so all the adjustments are easy and basic. A standard flat blade screwdriver should be all you need to address most carb problems. Your problem is more likely the fuel mixture, the ratio between gas and oil. Check your owner's manual and replace your fuel with the proper mix..

My Rancher doesn't maintain high rpm. What's wrong?

Most 2-cycle chain saws have 3 carburetor adjustments; idle speed, low RPM fuel/air mix and high RPM fuel/air mix. The fuel/air mix needle valves will probably require a "special" driver tool to adjust them. Be careful with the adjustments, you can really mess things up by incorrectly adjusting them, then your saw goes from running poorly to not at all.

It keeps stalling on me

This could be one of many problems:
To start, is this the first time you have used the unit in a while? Did you store it with gas in the saw? How old is the gas that you are putting in? The factory call center will tell you that today's gas is only good for about 30 days before you should use it. If it is old gas, get new gas, make a new mix and try again. If that doesn't work, check your air filter. If the air filter looks good, the carb either needs a good cleaning or an adjustment. The newer poulan saws require a special tool to make the adjustment. If this is a newer saw (1 year or less), 1 carb adjustment is covered under the warranty. You can find the list of authorized service centers on poulan's website. Without a model number, I can't help you with specifics on where the air filter is, etc. I hope this helps.

Proved saw is firing, acts like it is not getting enough gas, need to know proper procedure for adjusting carb. and what the two adjustments marked L and H do. Looks like it takes a special wrench, need to...

If the saw has a EPA carb it will have anti tamper screws, these have a spline on them, not a screw driver slot, there is a special tool to adjust the jets part no. 530035560, check the web for sellers, both screws are fuel screws, not air screws, so the more you undo them the richer the mixture gets, the L screw will adjust the mixture from idle up to half throttle, the H screw will adjust from half throttle to max rpm, all saws today are set for the best emmissions not the best running so they are always set on the lean side, the settings as they are will be a good starting point, if the saw does not pick up clean inscrew the L screw a bit at a time until it does, be very carefull with the H screw as this can be leaned off too much and the saw will over rev and possibly seize, this should be do with a taco so as you know what the rvs are, it should not exceed 12500 should aleays sound a little rich at maximum no load revs.

Most hobby saws do not have an adjustable pump, if it is adjustable there will be an external screw close the the clutch and sprocket, would would not need to remove the bar and chain to acsess it.

Normally you would need a screwdriver.But the adjustment screws on your saw have plastic caps on them that will only turn about a1/8 of a turn.these are pre-set at the will need too take carb off and clean it out.if that doe,s not help it needs to be rebuilt or replaced.

I have a new Husky saw that does not maintain accelleration. I'm operating at 7,500 feet above sea level. And apparently you need a special tool to adjust the carb? And there is nothing in the manual on...

All modern saws are set to operate very lean at sea level (thank the EPA). If you bought it locally take it back to your Husqvarna dealer, he should adjust it without charge. If purchased at a big box store or on line I'd take it to a dealer at the altitude where you use it and ask them to adjust it. there will be a fee but running it to lean will cause it to fail. A few dollars spent for an adjustment will certainly be less expensive than a new saw.
There are tabbed plastic caps on over your fuel adjustments. Thank the EPA once more.
