Re: small motor help

Some 2 cycle engines on chainsaws and other lawn machines are set by the factory and need to be taken to a technician to be adjusted because it can effect their emissions...Read your owners manuals...

Re: small motor help

Department store equipment often has plastic press on pieces over the adjusting screws so you can not adjust them. Others have a collar so you can only turn them a predetermined amount. Tyicly if you have to turn them more than a 1/4 turn, you need to clean your carb. And no, Carberator cleaners in a can don't work anymore and they harm plastic and rubber. Most of those department store pieces have plastic carbs now.

Re: small motor help

check automotive tools for a carb adjustment driver.

they come with an assortment of swappable end fittings for different adjustment screws

Most 2cycle problem is the muffle is clog .They get hard to start don't speed up stall etc.Take the muffler off it usually looks like a flat waffer clean with carb cleaner or?Than use a good 2cycle oil with stablizer in it

Re: small motor help

when a new 2cycle comes into my life, that screen comes off, I was fooled once by that.I did find the carb tool in fact the tool set for those that had the four types,will be adjusting soon! I also found an inverted torx set,which I bought because, I never saw one before,hopefully will never need it.
