Hello, New to the Forum
I picked up a Poulan 3400 Counter Vibe, not sure the year, for $50 Bucks and went through Everything!
(I have another one but the cylinder and piston are shot with only 30 psi)

The Saw will start and when it does it's got good power, but if I take my finger of the throttle it dies and when it warms up after 2 minutes, it boggs and stalls at Full throttle and then it takes a bunch of pulls to get started and ends up flooding, I suspect the High, Low and Idle are off.

I messed with the High and Low, and Throttle adjustments, but now I want to start fresh and reset them all.

How many Turns out should the High, Low and Idle at, when I resting the Carb?

I really need this saw going soon, any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Mad3400

Carb L and H should be initially set at 1 turn open from lightly seated. Check your inbox for an ipl, owners manual and service manual. Carb settings are in the owners manual and service manual.
