Adjusting the carburetor is to chainsawadjusting the position of the nozzles. As a rule, the carburetor has three adjustment screws: screw the low speed jet, propeller jet high speed and adjust idle screw blade running.


The first two screws regulate the ratio of the fueland air mixture, which is determined by the throttle valve opening. If you need to impoverish the mixture tighten the screw clockwise if necessary to enrich the mixture and increase the number of turns, the screw should be unscrewed by turning counterclockwise.
