Echo Carb Adjustment Tool

Ya I know it's a dealer only tool but there has to be someone out there that is selling/making them. I'm just getting sick of driving to the dealer for a 1/8 of an inch turn. Pm me if you don't want to post any info if you know where to get one.

Flat head screwdrivers come in all sizes. Star shaped, hex shapes,etc. are purchasable at harbor freight.
My two spare units aren't adjustable at all. when they start to act funny, get a rebuild kit or new carb.
Pretty much those Echo tornado carbs or whatever are throw aways....................the fuels and heat will warp them with continual use.

You go into the shop and tell em you want to buy one of those tools to adjust the carb. And while you are there ask them to buy one of those tools to pull out the plastic caps inside that little bitty hole. You can grind down a small screwdriver but ........why do that?

I ground a screwdriver down. Then again, I have a few dozen laying around.

I guess I can just go this route.

Just buy a set or two of the tiny screw drivers with the silver metal handles from harbor freight or even the dollar store. Then grind one down to a point or even a small hook to remove the plastic cap. This is the I do it and my dealer does the same.
