M7xR55: Not al;l adjust screws are splined as per this example. Homelite(home depot) screws are 'D' shaped. HD does not stock them. I rigged a piece of tubing to do the job and sure enough...my trimmer works fine now. Odd that so many trimmers need this adjustment after only a few uses. I had to open the left screw 3/4 of a turn...but it works fine now.
Oh Jay: You could find it on the Wish App for $3. Amazon $7
jgyrwa: Will this tool work on stihl chainsaws also?
Dennis “DDietr” Dietrich: Thank you :)
Matt Stewart: I just bought my carburetor adjustment tool in toolnkit.com got it fast and free shipping!!
not2high2fly: If your in a pinch and don't have the time to order/ go to the store to buy the tool you can try what I did. I used an old Bic pen that was out of ink, I pulled out the point and ink tube and filed the sides near the tip down a little to fit. Then heated the tip with my Bic lighter for a second or two to soften it a bit, pushed it on let it cool a second and turned the screw. I don't know if I just got lucky but if your stuck it's worth a try
Phillip Kramer: Wow i guess things are more expensive in Canada but I am wondering why. I bought that same tool while replacing a carb on a ryobi 26cc weedeater. The carb was 11 and that tool was another 5 and the brand of carb was not a walbro or zama but a ruixing.
Danny Diet: great Vid can I use this tool on Ryobi 2cyc weed whacker??
Larry Bolan: Thanks for the info. Revisted this video as my neighbor tossed his old weed eater (same model as the one in the video) due to it only running for a few seconds, and only if the choke was all the way on. I found that while the carb parts were still good, it was dirty and full of gunk and the like. Cleaned it out, put it together, runs a lot better, but the carb is WAY out of adjustment. Way too lean. Luckily Amazon had the tool for $10 shipped (I live in Indiana, lucky me).
derrickb1974: Thank you. Exactly what I was looking for.
Concerned: Thanks for the great info, enjoyed the video!
Michael Nicholson: Thanks for your help.
Travis Boyd: Hey don't u know its a federal offense to sell that tool to the general public in the states u should really take this video down
way ditay: So Dony.. that's for the regular "d" screw and access hole.
What diy solution for the mini/smaller "d" screw and access hole (that is now almost impossible to grab and turn) on my 2010 Echo PB-250 blower?
For that, Walbro/Echo/Shindaiwa had a "long d" adjusting tool (91059L) but it is not now available except through special circumstances (EPA mandated) from OEM.
Stephen Koldus: I pulled the ink out of a bic pen, taped the end to keep it from slipping. Worked great.
09809709879876678698A: $20 what a fraud, as if th4ey couldnt have just used a hex nut.
colin p: Thanks again Don, I will be ordering a set of these soon. However, I found that I can use a BIC pen (remove the tip and ink refill) and it fits perfectly over the screw. Since I bought a new Husky chainsaw, I will sacrifice my 4218 to learn on.
Cody Taber: Good to see an honest video with solid advice. Now that its spring and summer I'm sure there will be a gazillion hits on this. My experience with the special adjusting tools, of which there are at least two different ones for alternate brand machines. The pacman one is what I needed. And to get a good price last summer I had to order from SlowBay and I wasn't happy with the price. I now know my personal best option is a hacksaw blade to cut a slot across the screw heads and the surrounding aluminum molded around them. Takes five minutes to do to another machine once you have done it once.
Adam Barraclough: What do you think about the sets they sell on Amazon with different heads?
jonathan bosco: Thanks
