Craftsman 3.7 or poulan carburetor
« on: September 18, 2021, 02:16:39 pm »
 been through this carb trying to fix the flooding issues after a few minutes of running. Can't find any info on adjusting fuel metering lever. Locating a used  carb or new one is a big challenge if not impossible. Someone else was inside this carb when I bought it.

Craftsman 3.7 or poulan carburetor

Accidentally posted this question somewhere else but on my 3.7  the carb in constantly flooding the engine out and I've been
through the carb numerous times looking for the cause with no luck. Adjusted the level metering rod flush with casting but
didn't fix the problem. Anybody have a fix for this or do i need to search for another carb or just can this build altogether?
Wife keeps suggesting buy a modern saw with the headaches ::)

I do have the carb off that 3700 still.

I just set the fulcrum height to what the tool shows on them or what the book showed I just done one too. But cant recall.

No clue came in as a builder and I parted it instead, due to coil.

Went back through the carb a few times and so far its working for now. Waiting for chain to arrive then I'll test it cutting and if floods,then I'll sell it. Thanks for responding.
