SOURCE: can not adjust carburetor

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.

SOURCE: where do I get the little tool for adjusting the

The part number for this carb tool is
530-035560 and it is made by Poulan.
Not sure where you can purchase unless there is a small engine repair shop near you. If they deal in Poulan they may be willing to order one.
Otherwise, try on net for small engine repair.
Dave's Radiator is a good one.

SOURCE: carburetor adjustments yamaha 450yfz 2004

Turn both the air screw and throttle screw inward until they LIGHTLY seat. Now back each one outward one and one half turns. This is the factory setting. I am going to give you a web site where you can download a free PDF factory service manual for a YZ450FR. I believe the model is a bit different but the carbs are the same.

Go to this site and you can download a free PDF service manual. The site may take up to 25 seconds to fully load the list of manuals. It is worth the wait. www.carlsalter.com/motorcycle-manuals.asp The service procedures are there in detail and a lot of diagrams and photos. Don't mess with the pilot screw unless you have to, Part #11 in the diagram.
Can I get a Very Helpful" rating out of this?

Weedeater will idol but won't run - it will cut off when you try to give it gas


To begin with, let's start with the basics.
  1. Are you using fresh gas? If not, you need to get some. If there is any old gas/oil mixture in the machine, remove it by pouring it into some sort of container.
  2. If want to purchase a gas/oil mixture already mixed, a store like Home Depot or Lowes has quart cans at the correct mixures. 50:1 / 40:1 etc. and it's Leaded gasoline usually 91 octane.
Weedeaters will lose their carburetor adjustment over time because of vibration or the fuel mixtures may change. The carburetor settings are crucial for the machine to run properly.
Not all carburetors are the same, but which ever one you have, you will need a special adjusting tool to do this. You can find adjusting sets locally or here. https://www.amazon.com/HIPA-Carburetor-Adjustment-Including-21-Teeth/dp/B01FAAKN7E/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1467833656&sr=8-3&keywords=carburetor+adjusting+tool

Not To do this process, you will need to identify the 2 special

adjusting screws on the top or side of the carburetor.
The screws are highlighted as HI and LO. The HI allows fuel adjustment for the weedeater at full throttle. The LO is for the adjusting the idle.

Try these steps:
1. Adjust both screws clockwise until just seated (tight) using the correct tool (from a set similar to the one above)
2. Rotate the HI screw 1 1/2 turns counter-clockwise
3. Rotate the LO screw 1 turn counter-clockwise
4. Start the machine.
5. When it's running (spitting, coughing...) adjust the LO screw a 1/4 turn either way until you get a smooth idle.
6. Pull handle to run at full throttle. If the engine is sputtering then it's getting too much fuel....adjust the HI 1/4 turn clockwise checking to see if the engine runs smoother.
7. When you get the weedeater running smoothly, there are no further adjustments to be made. Just make sure you are using FRESH gas/oil that hasn't been sitting longer than 30 days.
Good Luck!

Show me how to adjust the carburetor on a bolens bl110


Bolens trimmer sputters and stalls and only runs on half choke? Here's how to fix it.
Look on the top of the carburetor and you will see 2 black screws that are mostly round with a flat side recessed in the aluminum housing. They are flat on top and have no notches to insert a screwdriver. The trick is to turn these two screws 1/4 turn counterclockwise. I have a set of precision pliers and used the fine tipped needle nose to turn them.
The other option is to try and notch the top of them enough so you can use a flat blade screwdriver. You can grind down the surrounding aluminum with a Dremel tool so you can access them better.
You can see in the picture that I scratched across the top of the screws as a reference to see how far I was turning them.

What is the walbro chain saw carburetor adjustment for a


There is no set adjustment on any chain saw. If it were that simple there would be no need for adjustments. The problem is that most equipment manufactured in the past 10 years can not be adjusted by the user. Carburetors are now equipped with either adjustment limiters which limit the adjustment to less than half a turn or with adjustment screws that require a special tool to make the adjustment. More than likely you will have to take it to an authorized dealer for those adjustments.

If you do have an adjustable carburetor, then gently close both needles and open each on 1 full turn. This should allow the engine to start and the final adjustments can be made at that point. If it still will not start then open each needle 1/8 to 1/4 turn and try again. If this still does not work then most likely your carburetor needs a good cleaning and a rebuild kit.
