Inspect oil filter (replace if necessary)

• Check periodically.
• Do not allow dust to enter into oil tank.
• A clogged oil filter will affect the normal lubricating system.
• Pull it out through oil filling hole with a piece of steel wire or the like.
• If the filter is dirty, wash it in gasoline or replace it.
• When the inside of the tank gets dirty, rinsing the tank out with gasoline can clean it.

Inspect recoil starter rope. (Clean if necessary)

Check carburetor adjustment, tool must not move when idling. (Adjust if necessary)

1. Before adjusting carburetor clean or replace air filter and muffler “Spark Arrestor Screen”.
2. Make sure the bar and chain are properly adjusted.
3. Start engine and run several minutes to bring to operating temperature. Flash choke twice during warm-up to clear any air from the fuel system.
4. Stop engine.
Turn “H” speed needle counterclockwise (CCW) to stop. Turn “L” speed needle midway between full clockwise (CW) stop and CCW stop.
5. Idle Speed Adjustment:
• Start engine, turn “Idle” speed adjustment screw CW until the saw chain begins to turn, then turn screw out CCW until the saw chain stops turning. Turn screw out, CCW, an additional 1/4 turn.
6. Accelerate to full throttle for 2 - 3 seconds to clear any excess fuel in the engine, then return to idle. Accelerate engine to full throttle to check for smooth transition from idle to high speed. If engine hesitates turn “L” needle CCW 1/8 turn and repeat acceleration. Continue adjustment until smooth acceleration results.
7. Check idle speed and reset if necessary as described in item 5. If a tachometer is available idle speed should be set to 2,650 r/min.
