Adjusting Poulan Pro PR4218 Chainsaw Carburetor (manual carburetor only)

Carburetor Guide for Poulan Pro PR4218 Chainsaw

The Poulan Pro PR4218 Chainsaw comes with a factory-adjusted carburetor that ensures optimal engine air/fuel flow. However, if the engine is cutting out or idling incorrectly, it may be necessary to adjust the carburetor using the instructions provided in the operator manual.

The manual includes standard settings for adjusting the idling screw, which can be turned clockwise or counterclockwise to set the correct idling speed.

In addition to carburetor adjustment, the operator manual also provides instructions on checking the spark plug for a good electrical spark and cleaning or replacing it as needed. The manual also covers air filter cleaning and replacement.

For those who want more detailed information on carburetor adjustment, PDF manuals are available from the Poulan Pro website.

Carburetor – General Chainsaw Adjustment

Adjusting the carburetor involves matching the fuel flow to the airflow allowed by the throttle valve opening, based on local conditions such as climate, altitude, fuel, and type of two-stroke oil. The carburetor on the PR4218 Chainsaw is equipped with three adjustment options:

  • L = Low-speed jet
  • H = High-speed jet
  • T = Idling adjustment screw

Turning the L and H jets clockwise makes the fuel/air mixture weaker, meaning less fuel in relation to the amount of air. Turning them counterclockwise makes the mixture richer, meaning more fuel in relation to the amount of air. A weak mixture increases engine speed, while a rich mixture decreases it.

The T screw controls the throttle position when idling. Turning it clockwise increases the idling speed while turning it counterclockwise lowers the idling speed. For a complete guide to adjusting the carburetor, refer to the operator manual.
