The splined Poulan Carb Adjustment Tool, 530035560, which was readily available for less than $20.00 before 2013, has become scarce and bottom the feeders are price gouging. Check ecrater.com and curtschainsawparts.com. I just received one and it is the quality item at very reasonable price, $14.00

Unless you are skilled enough to make your own, you are stuck taking the saw to a servicing dealer as they are the only ones allowed to possess the necessary 'D' head screwdriver. Give thanks to the EPA for mandating the prevention of mal-adjustment pollution.

Engine runs on choke but dies without?Special tool to adjust hi /lo carb settings?


Your main jet in carburetor is fouled and needs to be cleaned out. The choke circuit bypasses it but when you remove the choke the gas is supposed to go into engine via the main. If clogged, the engine will quit for lack of fuel.

Either clean the carb and jet or replace carb. And yes, newer carbs have basically non a adjustable jets which is ridiculous since each engine is unique and has to be properly matched to new carb. Way around this is by either buying the special tool (he-- with them) or using a dremel tool to cut into head of adjuster a slot so that you can use a regular flat blade screw driver to adjust.

Carb adjustmwnt requires a special tool and a tacho, the saw is set from the factory for the best emmisions, however it may need a small adjustment, this should be done by a qualified dealer, incorrect adjustments can damage the engine.

I can start my chain saw but when I give it more gas it stalls.


Hi jbboitnott,

There are 3 things I can think of that would cause that problem. First, the saw was not warmed up enough. Second, did you cut the choke back after your saw warmed up? The third cause would be that your carburetor is not adjusted correctly.
If you did the first two things, then you could try adjusting your carburetor. The carb has to have a richer mixture when it's cold than when it has warmed up. If you have your carburetor set with the mixture too high, it would start but then choke on the extra gas when it was warmed up. Thus, you should lean out the carb.
Huskys carb adjustment screws are on the same side as the oil and gas fill caps. They are above the gas cap. The screw on the left is for leaning the carb, the one on the right is to richen the mixture.
So, turn the left screw, sometimes marked "L", counterclockwise to richen the carb. Adjust a very small amount at a time. Let it run a little, cut some wood, then adjust again, if need be.

I hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate your vote. Thanks for visiting fixya.com

Hello,
My name is Dane and I am going to assist you in solving your problem.

You will need to adjust the high speed setting on your Carburetor jet. Turning the screw out just 1/2 turn or so should do the trick. It is not so hard to adjust the Carburetor, however, yes you do need a special tool that is very hard to get your hands on, in order to adjust the jet screws. They don't make many engines with plain screw heads anymore. The newer Carburetors are factory set lean so they can pass emission standards. Since you just bought yours, a local husky dealer should adjust the mixture for free. I hope I've helped. If you found this reply useful, please leave me some THUMBS UP, if you feel I

Its not an idle screw adjustment issue, it is a mixture screw adjustment issue, unfortunatly there is a special tool to adjust the mixture screws, pt no. 530035560 ( available from Hysqvarna dealers ) once you have this tool you can make an adjustment to the L screw on the carb, undo ( anti clock wise ) this screw ten minutes on a clock face ,this will richen the muxture, and should make it more stable on idle.

I need to set carb on a husqvarna 455 back to factory


Start with "H" and "L" 1 turn CCW from lightly seated. Then tune for performance like this.
Carburetor Adjustment by Madsens.com
http://www.madsens1.com/saw%20carb%20tune.htm
CW is leaner; to lean will destroy the saw. If over tightened closed (CW) the adjustment screw faces are easily marred; marred adjustments are difficult to impossible to set properly.
Clean the air filter; adjusting with a dirty filter can cause a run lean condition once cleaned and the saw run.

There are 2 wav (sound - idle & full – may not be highlighted) files that I find most helpful, I think you will too. HTH

I have a Husqvarna 455 rancher I have been trying to adjust the idle and carburetor but it's still running a little rough. Any Suggestions?


husqs are sensitif for dirt in carb and fuelsystem clean everything real good. airfilter, carb, tankfilter. after building together make sure it can not take false air. start with both screws closed and open for 360 degrees. after that start adjusting. compression must be ok. saw must hang on cord and not go down. good luck lot of work.

All modern saws are set to operate very lean at sea level (thank the EPA). If you bought it locally take it back to your Husqvarna dealer, he should adjust it without charge. If purchased at a big box store or on line I'd take it to a dealer at the altitude where you use it and ask them to adjust it. there will be a fee but running it to lean will cause it to fail. A few dollars spent for an adjustment will certainly be less expensive than a new saw.

There are tabbed plastic caps on over your fuel adjustments. Thank the EPA once more.
