Adjusting Poulan PL3816 Chainsaw Carburetor (manual carburetor only)

Poulan PL3816 Chainsaw chainsaw carburetor guide. The carburetor has been factory adjusted to provide the optimal engine air/fuel flow. Instructions for standard settings to adjust the idling screw, turning either clockwise or counterclockwise. Learn how to set the idling screw correctly if the engine is cutting out or idling incorrectly.

Learn how to check the spark plug for a good electrical spark, cleaning or replacing it if required. Air filter cleaning and replacement are described in the operator manual. Detailed carburetor PDF manuals are available from this website.

Carburetor – General Chainsaw Adjustment

Adjusting the carburetor involves adjusting the engine to the local conditions e.g. climate, altitude, fuel, and type of two-stroke oil. The carburetor 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 with 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).
