ebay and epa say bye bye to carb tools
« on: September 16, 2015, 08:08:56 pm »
Ebay pulled my listing apparently at the behest of the EPA for the 4 piece carb adjust tool set, lots of guys selling them on Ebay and Amazon, but apparently not for long.
Ebay said not to relist with new language.
I think I have 30+ sets left, but it isnt worth losing selling on Ebay over one item.
I wonder how long till they start pulling all my OEM stihl carb tools.
I have been ordering them in much smaller qty so I don't end up with boxes full if they nix my listings.
if you think you might need them grab them up from someone while they are still around.

I seen your ebay ad for them. Was a good deal and looked like the ones I ordered from overseas and had shipped in.
If you had them when I was looking for 2nd set I would have got yours being your USA. :)

List them here in your where to buy online thread or in for sale section. Only members signed in can see those areas. ;)

I don't think I participate enough here to hawk my wares :)  I like the site just so busy and so scatterbrained.
If someone needs a set let me know I will get them to you cheap, but don't feel obligated.
This was really just a heads up because the EPA is adopting new tactics.

Damn gestapo.....

For older saws:
Tune the H side so that it 4-strokes (burbles) at WOT unloaded and just cleans up when under load.
When you lift cutting load, the saw should immediately revert to 4-stroking.  Fine tune the transition point for the wood you're cutting.

The EPA nerds are kidding themselves!!! They are just wasting tax payer $$$

When there is a will there is a way. People will find a way around all the EPA crap.
We should share what we know... someone may learn...

The place where I work received notice from the EPA to stop adjusting the carburetors on the 2 cycle equipment I work on.   We do a lot of warranty work for the big box stores around here and a lot of the problems are just a simple carb adjustment.   It really is stupid nonsense but they risk a big fine if they do not comply.

The EPA is helping themselves to get a feather in their hat?
