Carburetor Adjustment
There are no hard and fast settings.
A good initial starting point for the "H" and "L" needle valves are 1.5 turns CCW from lightly seated.
The "T" adjustment enters here (idle speed) and there is no initial setting without a tachometer, depending on age of your saw there may not be any initial "T" setting.
The "L" needle is primarily idle performance (not speed) and acceleration to full throttle.
The "H" is mostly performance at speed, but all are interconnected.


Start with a fresh mix of fuel. Put ALL of the old mix in any 4 cycle engine and start new. I suggest 50:1 regardless of what your manual says.
CW is leaner; to lean will destroy the saw. If over tightened closed (CW) the adjustment screw faces are easily marred; once 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.
Clean the spark arrestor and muffler; if the saw cannot exhale it cannot inhale.
Now we adjust for performance. The best performance adjustment procedure I have found follows.
Madsens Shop & Supply, Inc. Carburetor adjustment (All saws homeowner and professional are the same)
http://www.madsens1.com/saw%20carb%20tune.htm Read step 4 (allow it warm before making adjustments).
There are 2 wav (sound - idle & full - may not be highlighted) files that I find most helpful, I think you will too.
I am going to inject a little philosophy here. Undetected air leaks and defective fuel delivery systems account for most chainsaw failures. Constant adjustment of needle valves can easily camouflage more serious problems that result in burning up your saw. A sudden need for an adjustment is often indicative of a larger problem.
If push comes to shove a local saw shop (I prefer Stihl mechanics and do not own a Stihl) should be considered.

If you have more questions or need additional help please reply below and I will get back to you. HTH & Good Luck.

Mcculloch 3516 chain saw, does not always start.


It must have spark, fuel and compression to run. Your task is to figure out which is missing.
Sometimes electrical components quit operating once beyond a certain temperature. Does it always start cold and become tempermental when warm?
IMO most hard start problems on a chainsaw with a good fuel delivery system are flooded.
Start Procedure
Cold:
  1. Ignition on/off to on
  2. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release
  3. Pull (close) choke, set fast idle (done when choke closed on some saws); pull starter and listen for an attempt to start. once heard (usually two pulls; no more than 4)
  4. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release
  5. Push (open) choke pull starter until it starts. (usually first pull)
Warm:
  1. Ignition on/off to on
  2. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release
  3. Pull (close) choke, set fast idle (done when choke closed on some saws) - Don’t pull with choke closed.
  4. Push (open) choke, pull starter until it starts. (usually first pull)
The 3516 is a MTD McCulloch (Chinese). These saws are in a class by themselves. Good Luck

I have a 3516 chain saw mod22-600035-18 Mcculloch the fuel lines


I wish I could help. There are no parts available, there are no Exploded parts lists I've found a link to. These are Chinese chainsaws with the McCulloch name. They ARE Chinese chainsaws and I'm disappointed in Mac. Most mechanics won't touch them. We can provide no more help with this saw. Sorry
Lou
Poulan or Craftsman gasoline chainsaws are reasonably inexpensive, parts are available, and given a little TLC perform well.

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.
