Question and Answers

Q:

what are the needle valve setting on the carb.? 917351050 Craftsman Sears chain saw

A:

Start by turning the low (L) and high (H) needle valves screwed all the way in clockwise until they bottom out. Do not over tighten. A starting point would be backing the low (L) and high (H) needles valves out 2 1/2 turns. Then start the engine and let it warm up. Run the engine at full throttle and adjust the high (H) speed jet out or in until the engine reaches the peak rpm. Once it peaks out, turn the high (H) speed needle valve counter clockwise (CCW) 1/8 to 1/4 turn. Release the throttle back to an idle and adjust the idle screw if needed to keep the engine running. Adjust the low (L) speed needle valve as needed to adjust the engine idle. If the engine bogs down when throttling up, turn the high (H) speed needle valve counter clockwise (CCW) 1/8-1/4 turn. You may also need to open the low (L) speed needle valve as needed to prevent bogging down when throttling up. I added a link to a video showing how to adjust the carburetor.

Q:

I am searching for a chainsaw bar that seem to be no longer available.

A:

Thank you for choosing ManageMyLife.com. I understand how important it is to be able to get correct parts for your chainsaw. However, the model number you've provided is invalid in my system. Craftsman chainsaw model numbers normally start with 3 digits and a dot followed by 5-8 more digits after that. I am unable to look up parts without a model number.
If you would like more assistance, reply to this thread and please include the complete model number of the chainsaw and I will be glad to assist you further. Thanks for using ManageMyLife.com.

Yes, I included the model number of the saw and the part number already. The part number was hand written on the cardboard cover it came in, but Sears confirmed it is the part number. They just can't find me the part. The chainsaw is a Sears D-44 lightweight with the manual oiler.

Unless an expert comes up with a source chances are you're going to be out of luck. Your Sears D-44 - Model Number - 917.351050 - chainsaw was manufactured by Roper and is 30 to 40 years old.

The little tag on the motor is a Tecumseh model number. It's from the 60's according some of the papers and packages that came with it. I'm actually having good luck on a forum for tree cutters and chainsaw enthusiasts. I've found a person who walked me through a repair and 3 more people who currently own the same model or used to and are looking for spare parts and a manual for me.This site and Sears are pretty useless. This certainly not the first time I've had this problem. This type of equipment is built to last, and we're pretty much forced to replace it simply because you can't find common parts and such.

Thank you for choosing ManageMyLife.com. Anonymous, thank you for providing the model number for this chainsaw. The bar for this model is no longer available per the manufacturer. I apologize for this inconvenience. Manufacturers normally stop making parts for any given unit, about 7-10 years after production. The best suggestion I have is to enter the part number on the internet to find out if there is a seller selling used parts.
I hope we can help you with any other questions and repairs in the future. Thanks for using ManageMyLife.com.
