I used the #12 butt crimp connectors on the splined needles but it wasn't consistent enough for accurate adjustment. I decided that the crimp connectors could best be used to just remove the needles so you could slot them?

Then I came across the splined and Pac Man screw drivers at a decent price. I didn't worry about it any more.

I took some plastic tubing that would fit tight over the spline head screws, then cut down a pair of small machine screws to about 3/8" long, boogered up the threads on them to keep them from turning, pressed them into the tubing and pressed the tubes onto the mixture screws in the carb.They come out about even with the plastic guard over the screws.This way they can stay there forever, and can be turned with a straight screwdriver, plus they are easy to see thru the holes in the top cover.Works great! ( P3816 saw).

Thanks, Couldn't afford the golden screwdriver, had to do something! I think all newer saws can't run right out of the box, they're strangled by gov't. regulations. I really doubt that chainsaw emissions is a big problem anyway...
