Re: Poulan Pro Chainsaw 18" 42cc stalls at part throttle
Ok, it must be the mixture adjustment. I adjusted the screw out with a pair of pliers. Adjusted it out even with the low side screw. Now its WAY too rich, smokes alot and doesnt rev high enough but it WILL run above 1/3rd throttle. I am 99% sure the problem is the mixture adjustment. I just need the special tool to adjust it correctly.
BTW I believe the gas I am using now is 91 octane from a pump labeled "No Ethanol". I dont know how it is in other states but here in Missouri, ALL gas less than 91 octane MUST contain 10% ethanol by law. SO, 91 does not have to contain ethanol, but it is ALLOWED to contain it. So unless its 91 octane and labeled "No Ethanol", I no longer buy it. Not for anything. I am glad I drive a diesel... however even that has been messed with, they took out most of the sulfur which makes it hard on the pumps and injectors in pre-07 diesels. Blah! They need to quit messing with out stuff! Or let them foot the bill for the repairs and upgrades.
