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...

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.

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.
