HCR 1500 Hedge Trimmer. Putting on a new carb. How many turns to open the screws on the new carb? In other words, a rough adjustment just to get the little pig running again? Thanks, gents. Hot Ajax. Don't send Private Messages. My mail box all #$%&'ed up. Thanks.

The new carb will have the limiters. If you can get the tool it will likely cost as much or more than the carb, they are not supposed to be sold to service shops or the end user.
I worked for the Canadian Homelite distributor, we had the tools available for less than 10 bucks each. Then a directive came through from the EPA threatening all kinds of dire consequences, the price promptly shot through the roof. We weren't under the EPA thumb but management decided to quit selling them to be safe, they didn't want them going back across the border.
