Turn both jet screws CW to stops (lightly), then back each out CCW 1-1/2 turns. This is a basic setting and should allow the engine to start and run. Start the engine and allow to warm up, then pull the throttle full on. Turn the H needle CW until the engine starts to speed up, but still 4-strokes. Correct adjustment is when the engine 4-strokes running free, but immediately 2-strokes when cutting. Release the throttle and adjust L needle so that the engine idles fairly well, but allows the engine to 'follow the throttle'. Adjust idle speed screw so that the chain stops turning, but the engine continues to run. Hope this helps!

take apart your carb--sounds like your carb diaphram is not installed right the settings should be
1.5 turn out low jet
1 turn out high jet
that should get it running then some fine adjustment once its running

Set the carb for a mcculloch 3516 chain saw


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.

I need to know the carb adjustments for a Husky 65. I need to know how far each screw should be turned out on the carb to get it to run so that I can fine tune the saw.


Start with 1.5 turns on the low speed screw and 1.5 turns on the high speed screw. You can fine tune from this setting.

2375 ''wild thing'' poulan saw hard starting after carb rebuild


Through trial and error on fairly new Poulin Pro, found that the usual 3-half turns for both high and low was too much (flooded) (Used to be good starting point on weed eaters years ago. So, turned both all the way in, and only backed out 1-full turn. (2-halves) Saw fired up perfectly, and ran wide open just fine. Try that.
