Yes...they have them on Ebay. Normally you won't be able to get one from a small engine repair place or dealer unless you're "in" with them. You can make using a 22 gauge-18 calibre electrical connector. (Quick disconnects-female) They need to be female spade terminals and you can stick um on the end of a screw driver and then push them down over the round-splined heads of the L and H adjusting needles on the carb. Probably have them at auto parts store....if not Radio Shack.

What is carburetor setting on a2.3 chainsaw


There is no fixed carburetor setting on these engines, just two screws to adjust low-end and high-end operation. Special tool may be required, there are about a half-dozen screw head standards. Check eBay for tool. Get the engine to run and idle fast (idle adjust) so it doesn't stall, adjust low-end screw so that engine doesn't hesitate or sputter when accelerated. Adjust high-end screw to run fast and smooth on full throtle. Readjust idle to normal.

I own a Husqvarna 128LD. My trimmer works on full choke, half choke, and when in the run position...it runs...but when the trigger is on balls to the wall throttle, it goes dead. What is my next move?


The next step is to richen the fuel mixture on the H screw on the carb, there is a special tool required to turn the adjuster screws because they have a splinr rather than a screw driver slot, the tool is part np. 530035560 unscrew tthe H screw 1/4 turn anti clockwise.

Ryobi CS30 Trimmer starts and runs in full choke and half choke but stumbles and stalls on run. Not up to full rpms when in full choke and half choke....


You probably need a slight carburetor adjustment. Try to turn the L mixture screw (the one near the bottom of the carburetor on the air filter side, closest to the engine) 1/8 to 1/4 of a turn counterclockwise. These mixture adjustment screws ( L and H) have odd heads on them and conventional tools won't turn them. I use an automotive type plastic wire connector (around 22 gauge) with a ring terminal end which I can hold. Tap the plastic end of the wire terminal connector onto the head of the screw with a small hammer and this will enable you to adjust the L screw. This adjustment will increase you high speed side and possibly allow it to run off choke in a regular manner.

Trimmer will start but as soon as i depress the trigger it dies. I have had to replace the primer bubble and in doing so made sure the gasket was put back on properly IT JUST WONT STAY RUNNING can you...


Your trimmer is starving for fuel. If it is less than 18 months old, my guess is that it just needs a carburetor adjustment. If it is older than 18 months, it should have the carb cleaned and rebuilt, or replaced. Check with homelite.com for the cost of a replacement carb, sometimes they are less expensive than having the old one repaired. If it just needs an adjustment, find a local repair shop to do it for you. Homelite requires a special tool to adjust the carb, and won't sell the tool directly to consumers. Some shops will sell the adjustment tool. No special tools are required to replace the carb, just basic tools.
Good luck!

My 32cc starts right up but as soon as i give it gas it stops...help


The low side carburetor adjustment screw needs to be turned counter-clockwise. Start by turning it 1/4 turn then test run. If your carb has plastic locks on the screws, they will have to be removed first. Most modern carbs require a special tool to adjust the jets. The tool can usually be purchased from your local repair shop.

Problem with gas trimmer staying started


Carburetor is out of adjustment. there are two carb adjustment screws on the side of the Carb. they require a special tool that is only $5 from your local mower repair dealer. those screws are the idle and Hi speed mixture adjustments. the carbs on Ryobi are set too lean. turn counterclockise to richen the mixture. just turn one eigth of a turn at a time. start w the hi speed.
