Adjusting Poulan Pro PR3816 Chainsaw Carburetor (manual carburetor only)

The carburetor is a critical component of your chainsaw’s engine, responsible for regulating the air/fuel mixture that powers your saw. With the right adjustments, you can ensure that your chainsaw is running smoothly and efficiently, even in challenging conditions.

The carburetor on your chainsaw has been factory adjusted to provide optimal air/fuel flow, but sometimes adjustments are necessary to achieve the best performance. This guide provides standard settings for adjusting the idling screw, which can be turned either clockwise or counterclockwise to correct idling issues or engine cutouts.

To properly adjust your carburetor, you’ll need to understand the three adjustment options: L (low-speed jet), H (high-speed jet), and T (idling adjustment screw). The L and H jets regulate the fuel flow to match the airflow that the throttle valve opening allows. Turning them clockwise weakens the fuel/air mixture (less fuel about the amount of air) while turning them counterclockwise strengthens the mixture. A weak mixture increases the engine speed, while a rich mixture decreases it.

The T screw controls the throttle position when idling. Turning the T screw clockwise increases idling speed while turning it counterclockwise decreases it. You can refer to your operator manual for a complete guide on adjusting your carburetor.

Additionally, it’s important to regularly check your spark plug for a good electrical spark, and clean or replace it as necessary. You should also follow the instructions in your operator manual for cleaning and replacing your air filter, as a dirty or clogged filter can affect carburetor performance.

For more detailed information on adjusting your carburetor, you can access carburetor PDF manuals from our website. With this guide and the right adjustments, you can keep your Poulan Pro PR3816 chainsaw running at peak performance.
