    An electrical terminal screw driver or similar.
    Stanley make a good one and slip a little bit of tubing on the end so it holds on the screw when adjusting. I use this setup when tuning the Norton.
    T is probably for throttle/idle speed. Adjust low/high and then the idle.

    PS, when you adjust the high speed, being a 2 stroke, make sure it is smoking out the exhaust on full revs unloaded.
    When you load it (cutting), it will go lean so make sure you are a little rich unloaded.

    @northdude Ok, you could try some thinner walled tube as the outside of the vacuum tube might be binding on the housing or the other screw. Or you could run the saw up then turn it off and make a small 1/8 adjustment in/out and run it up again and see how it responds. A little bit of pissing around but not that hard. How does the saw currently run? whats it doing? How does it run when you turn it 90deg so it is running on its side?

    i originally thought it had a blocked exhaust as it would start and idle on the choke then push the choke in and try and rev it it would just bog and die and then it wont start again it was running fine about 3 months ago when i put it away thats why i thought mason bee might of made a nest in muffler as had that happen

    @northdude Have you checked the air cleaner? it won't take much crap to choke it so make sure it's very clean! If you started it with old fuel it (the fuel) might have separated and oiled the plug. Don't adjust anything, clean or better still, change the plug and use new fuel.

    @northdude Ok, good strong spark? It doesn't take much for a mag to struggle under compression. If it smells really fuely, remove the plug and if it is dry then its most likely lean. If this is the case (as you will know) wind out (anticlockwise) the L screw to enrich the mixture. But prior to this, give the saw a bloody good shake to make sure the inlet filter is not hanging up out of the the fuel.

    they tell me the newer models have a filter in fuel system....it was that the "too much oily mix" had somehow clogged up....saw ran just as you discribe...would start but die as soon as tried to rev it,bogged down like.
