wcjcnc: There are a total of 7 "special" screwdrivers for adjusting the carburetors on 2 cycle engines. I have all 7 of them but it took me a few months to get them. The hardest one to find is the "Offset Pin" driver. Then there's the standard four which are the Splined tool, Single D, Double D, and the Pac-Man. The other two are the "Tiny D" and the Stihl 4MM Hex driver. It's nice to have the proper tool when something comes into my shop. 

Bob Traweek: Get it while you can. EPA made it illegal to tune your carb and if you sell the tool there's a $12,000 fine! America is run by corporate idiots.

John Lizana: Hi im kong I have question about weadeater carb adjustment screws. I don't know what the proper way to adjust them if they have ben taken out .

Christopher Pinterich: AMAZON.COM!

Trust No One: there or a lot of tools for the carburetor's but you can buy them all in a set on Amazon and Thanks for the great video's donyboy73

JohnnyBallou: Thanks! You saved me a fortune in repair costs!

Doc Riordan: Just purchased 4 different types of these at Amazon at the price of $10 per. Hope to get my money's worth in the future, I'm sure it will make the adjustment easier. Good Video, I am subscribed and learning.

grantman64: THANK YOU!!!! My Craftsman 358.791070 32cc weed trimmer has been running like s**t -- it'll run fine with the choke on, but when I hit the throttle, it dies. Was thinking I'd at least have to buy a new carb, but thanks to your vid I have ordered the tool you reviewed and expect to have my trimmer running like a top within minutes of the tool arriving on my doorstep.

Skyler1640: Craftsman 32cc Weed whacked had that problem I'm just a carburetor on it and it vibrate like crazy hard to just because it's vibrating you know Getting one too weedeater husqvarna Like them. Negative review this Husqvarna problem The pull ropes or junk 128ld I like them

wcjcnc: Damn, I damaged my screwdriver like this one. Had to get on ebay and order a replacement. There goes $26.00. Can't live without it though. lol

Bob Traweek: For $3 I bought a disk for my hand held drill (Dremel). I simply ground off the aluminum housings for the high speed jet adjustment screws for access to the adjustment needles. I used a hemostat to tweak the jet setting and had positive results. If I'd had a cutting wheel available, I could have notched the stupid needle head for ordinary screw driver adjustment. Stupid EPA.

Dale Howell: use a dremel tool and cutting disc and grind a slot for a screwdriver go slow and not let it get to hot..

Sean Rhoades: I have an Echo PB-250 Blower, with a walbro carb, it has two small adjustment D type screws for H & L, I would like a tool to adjust them, it cost me over $20 to have a Echo dealer tune last year. I saw somewhere that the EPA has made it illegal to sell these tools is that true?

beas302: Thank you for the good information.

Warren Copeland: I'll take some pics tonight for you. The tip of it is round with a tiny pin offset to one side. The screw it fits just has a round head with a tiny hole in it just off center. I've only needed this tool a few times. 

mikeatc33: Thats The greatest tool...!...Thanks for the info!

donald laisure: 24 female torques

bigDcstx: Just grabbed one from amazon for 18.68 shipped. Thanks for the video!

wcjcnc: I want to make my own offset pin screwdriver. Do you have any of those carbs that have those offset pin H/L screws? I need one to go buy so I can make the tool. I could make one for you too.

oldfatnbroke: When your Poulan tool wears out and will not turn the screws any longer just grind about 3/16" off the end of the tool. That will get you past the worn splines and expose brand new splines. Do not overheat the tool! If you see the steel turning blue stop and cool it in a cup of watter. You have to take your time so you do not remove the temper of the steel or the splines will wear really fast.

donyboy73: I've never heard of a fine but I know they are making It harder for people to sell them

donyboy73: thank you

donyboy73: NO IT WON'T

Home Vidoes: I'm working on a toro trimmer. The carb adjustment screws are smooth on the outside and have a "dimple" in the top. Do you have a part number or place to buy a tool to fit this adjustment screw?

donyboy73: if it says 40:1 then I would continue using it

donyboy73: LOOK UP "POULAN CARBURETOR TOOL

TheWallyjp: love when u put up tool vids can i find one of these in like a Sears, Lowes, or Home Depot?

lawnguys2: cool

trunk516: Was wondering if you're anywhere with the video on replacing the recoil spring for the starter on my Lawnboy 8603??

666mrjimbo: I PURCHASED ALL 4 FOR UNDER 40.00 BUCKS AYYYY ONLINE AYYYYY I NEED A BEER AYYY ABOOT TIME!!

jimandnena4: I worked on my first Ryobi last year and solved the carb adjustment problem without a tool. picasaweb.google.com/jimandnena4/RyobiC430CarbAdjustment?authuser=0&authkey=Gv1sRgCKTisNaruqeJQQ&feat=directlink

savagenomore: gotta be able to get them out before you can do that

icandoit20: I bought mine at mowers4u.com It was less than 10 bucks.

Greg O: Ordered one of these at Amazon, and it showed up today. Don't have anything to use it on at the moment, but sure I'll need it in the future. Thanks for the upload.

donyboy73: then a good starting point is 2 turns out

donyboy73: I have a lot of carbs here, would need to see exactly which one u want

donyboy73: nice to hear that

Goregoon: Nice, I didn't even know that tool existed. I assumed they were non-adjustable for some reason. Thanks for the vid!

phordguy: Although I haven't tried it yet I hear an electrical butt connector will also work if you don't have the tool...

Liamautomechanic: tidy wee tool. worth the money.

donyboy73: lol

99carnot: Good information! Thanks!!

Robbie Batdorf: Thank you so much, can now cut weeds instead of trying to get my 2 weed eaters started. they never ran right new, that's why I purchased the 2nd one last year. My wrist thanks you too.

sjs2657g: Thanks, I'm in need to adjust that type of carb, and would rather not spend a lot of money for a one use item. Did you take that link off? I can't seem to get it to work.

Martin LeBlanc: my new saw calls for 40:1 mix will it hut it if I use 50:1 after I break it in

TheLoneWolf1124: Just ordered one, fuel tubing used to work but its not easy to be precise with it.

donyboy73: welcome to my channel!

dejanira2: Always looking for tools to make things easier,

wcjcnc: It's just a round screw with a hole or dimple in the head of it. The hole is offset a bit to one side. One of these screwdrivers is on ebay right now and it has a bid of $55.00 on it which is CRAZY. It's part # 797-00039, MTD Zama carb adjust tool. I've learned a lot from your videos but I'm a poor man so I can't afford to donate but I'd be glad to mail you one of these once I figure out how to make them.
