Carburetor – General Chainsaw Adjustment

Adjusting the carburettor involves adjusting the engine to the local conditions e.g. climate, altitude, fuel and type of two-stroke oil. The carburettor is equipped with three adjustment options.
L = Low speed jet
H = High speed jet
T = Idling adjustment screw

The L and H jets adjust the fuel flow to match the airflow that the throttle valve opening allows. Turning them clockwise makes the fuel/air mixture weaker (less fuel in relation to the amount of air) and turning them anti-clockwise makes the fuel/air mixture richer. A weak mixture increases the engine speed and a rich mixture decreases the engine speed. The T screw controls the throttle position when idling. Turning the T screw clockwise gives faster idling; turning it anti-clockwise lowers idling speed (see manual for complete guide).

Some owners have reported that they have to adjust the carburetor more often than they would like. Owners report that the muffler heat shield plate often comes loose. This isn’t an unusual issue with gas power tools. Vibration can often expose small design faults that cause fixing bolts and screws to loosen. It’s wise to check your saw before every use to see if everything is tight!

The Husqvarna 142 features a constant flow bar and chain lubrication system. There’s no oil pump, the system is gravity fed. It’s a low cost solution to the important issue of keeping bar and chain lubricated. Unfortunately the other feature of this gravity fed system is that it leaks oil even when not in use! Owners often complain about this issue. Be certain to store your saw carefully where an oil leak can be contained. Apparently it is possible to reach inside the oil tank and hook the feed pipe over the screw thread for the filler cap. This stops it leaking whilst in storage. However, do not forget to unhook the feed pipe before use or you risk a low lubrication disaster!
