There should be a small screw hole beside the prime pump bulb where you can adjust the centrifugal clutch nudge ahead speed, and then adjust down again for the correct idle without any chain motion. However the gas tank filter inside really needs to be cleared of a paper thin film of dust which gets in there while refueling and won't let gas through - this causes you to think the carb needs more gas or the idle setting is wrong.

There should be a vac device called a pull-off that opens the plate about 20% when the engine starts. Then the electric coil heats up to open the plate in a few minutes of run time.

How do i fix my 89 jeep wranglers float in the carberater?

Carburetor floats are adjusted (if needed) when the unit is rebuilt. This is not a normal maintenance item and it is unusual for a float to become misadjusted. Rebuild kits for carburetors are available from parts stores inexpensively, and complete instructions for all adjustments and clearances are included in the kits, as well as all the gaskets and replacement parts you might need.

What or how to adjust the carberater

I take it you just found a heading for your saw and it is gas operated, not electric? Adjusting the carb, you have 2 jets on the side , one low one high, depending on what it does, won't rev, won't idle, open up the adj screws 1/4 turn and see what happens, if they have been moved in and out and are way off, turn them all the way in and then out 1 1/2 turns each, this should get you running. You can fine tune from here, one at a time, and very fine adj. It doesn't take much. make sure the gas is mixed right, and the chain does not bind. Hope this helps.

New carberater and a mechanic needed!

Even if you do it yourself you need to adjust it.I would get another mechanic to look at it also.Have you tried cleaners? 1 type you add to the gas the other you remove the air bonet and spray into the top of carb while running (have someone press on the gas lightly so you don't stall.Have you tried to increase the idle via the adjusting screw? has the auto choke been tested..adjusted? Good Luck.

The carberater is leakin gas

hi mate you float is to high in the carb take the carb off and take the bottom casing off and adjust the float to the correct measurements in the manual if the float is too high it is allowing to much fuel in and so it will flow over the over flow and out the tubes it is simple puch the pin out and adjust the metal where the little valve is hanging onto with a pair of long nose pliers good luck

There shouldn't be an adjustment to it. It is held in place with a pin & small piece of metal. The tiny spring goes under the small piece of metal and it hooks to the needle valve.
