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).

The Husky 51 chainsaw was first released in 1990 and is a considered good saw with Husky owners. It shares many parts with the 50 and 55 chainsaw models, often you can use parts from these 3 machines interchangeably. It has a 2-Stroke 51cc engine, making it an efficient firewood cutter.
There were quite a few changes made to the 51 chainsaw during the years it was manufactured (like the carburetor had three different types fitted), and so sometimes you need to know the exact year in order to order any correct parts.
If you wanted to know what year your specific chainsaw was made, you can find out by looking at the serial number on the name identification place riveted to the saw.
The first number in the year in the 90s that it was assembled and the second number is the week.
The Husqvarna 51 is ideal for this type of work:
felling small trees
- Chain brake for stopping blade rotation when triggered
- Throttle lock to reduce chainsaw injuries and accidents
- Automatic chain oiler
- Anti-vibration handle
- Good power to weight ratio
- Air injection filtration system
- Smart Start decompression valve for easier starting
