Thanks to all who contribute to this great forum.
Started our Husky 372. Ran great as usual at idle and no load high speed which was a bit under 11,500 rpm (13,500 rpm recommended Max. although I generally run 500 rpm or so slower).
Adjusted no load rpm to around 13,000 rpm THEN
IT WOULD NOT IDLE. WOULD DIE. Accelerates
perfectly from a bit above idle.
I screwed the idle speed in but still did not increase
speed. If it had increased the speed and not died it would have made it easier for me to fine tune the idle mixture.
Saw starts so very well as usual but dies at idle.
Again, idled perfectly before I adjusted no load speed from around 11,500 to 13,000 rpm.
Air cleaner nice and clean, new fuel mix. Still playing with idle mixture control but would help to know the basic turns of the idle needle.
Never had this problem before after owning the 372 for three years and hundreds of cutting hours.
Again, would help to know the basic turns of the idle needle.
Maybe I am losing my touch at 82 years +.
Thanks and appreciation.
