HOW TO ADJUST POULAN CHAINSAW CARBURETOR

HOW TO ADJUST POULAN MODEL 2150 CHAINSAW CARBURETOR. These are just suggestions, others might do it differently. Be Careful doing this. IF YOU SCREW IN THE LOW SCREW IT WILL RUN LEANER. UNSCREW THE LOW SCREW AND IT WILL RUN RICHER. USE THE HIGH SCREW TO SET IDLE AND ALSO TOP END. DON’T FORGET THE IDLE ADJUST SCREW, THE BIG SCREW, TURN IT IN FOR FASTER IDLING AND TURN OUT FOR LOWER IDLE.

    @carvinrigged they are made by same company but husqvarna is far superior. i would buy a husqvarna or stihl

    Hi , I have one of the first Poulan Wildthing 18″ 42 c.c. saws with a Walbro carb. I have used,and abused this saw and actually cut firewood with it . It runs strong and is very dependable . I know it can’t last forever so I’m looking at Husqvarna as a replacement . Everyone tells me they are the same saw . Is this true ? If so which doo you reccomend . Thanks for sharing !

    @MrPalvis 1st take off the muffler and look at the piston and rings to make sure they aren’t scored, it could be that ur compression is too low, check that first, it doesn’t cost anything

  • MrPalvis:

    @donyboy73 so even if i have gas and oil coming out the muffler and the spark plug i need a carb kit? or are the rings bad? help

  • donyboy73:

    @MrPalvis put in a new carb kit

  • MrPalvis:

    i have a homelite xl and i have gas pouring into the cylinder and into the muffler, what do i do to stop this.

  • donyboy73:

    @jazz82z u can turn down the idle screw, if that still doesn’t do it the clutch springs may need to be replaced

  • jazz82z:

    my chainsaw chain moves while on idle. the only way to stop chain movement is to put on the brake. any thoughts. thank you

    @onaleegrace go to my channel and paste this in the search box Fuel Line Configuration on Poulan 2150 Chainsaw

  • onaleegrace:

    I replaced rotted out hoses on my 14″ 35cm Polan. It will not run. Could you show how to replace hoses?

    @IMCrazyQuick thanks for watching!

  • IMCrazyQuick:

    My unit ran perfectly until after I replaced fuel lines and a mechanic thought it needed a carb adjustment. He really fouled it up. I was about to pitch my 16 year-old Poulan because it was running like crap. No power and would not idle. A friend let me use his new Poulan and the chain kept coming off due to of that easy bar adjustment. No way do I want a new chainsaw with that feature. Anyway, I referred to your video and now my trusty old Poulan is working like a champ again. Thank you!

  • donyboy73:

    @gbienhome probably need a new carb kit

  • gbienhome:

    I tried your adjustments and now have my 3400 is running well as long as the choke is in the half on position. When I push the choke all the way in, the engine will not rev up. It acts like it is overloaded. If I pull the choke out half way, it revs up great. How to get it to run with the choke off?

  • chfar072281:

    That worked perfect! Thanks for the info.

  • websuspect:

    I love my cheap crappy poulans thanks!

  • donyboy73:

    @tribulation138 L screw will help with responsiveness

  • tribulation138:

    hmm. i didnt know the low screw effects the WOT. I always turn the H screw to adjust the high rpms

  • brianwilburn:

    @songz15love That can actually screw up your gaskets and diaphragm. Use wd40

  • brianwilburn:

    You can always bust out the trusty black and decker dremel and cut a slot in the screws. Beat them at their own game.

  • ushouldntjudgeme:

  • ushouldntjudgeme:
