    Well, Slapper, it appears my research dept is out to lunch as well.
    The link didn't pan out--"undefined", when I clicked on it. At any rate, the info is on Echo's website.

    My saw has the WT829. I assure you they are recessed. My concern, as mentioned, is after their removal, the needles will have nothing to hold them in place as these adjusters have no springs per the WT829 diagram. Thanks...

    Thanks. The saw only has a couple of hours on it and I did check the spark screen and it's clean. Anything else to check??

    Jud...I looked around the shop and could not find a single carb with springs on the adjustment screws.
    Over 100 Stihl, redmax,echo, commercial units. Most have been adjusted at some point and the caps ain't around.
    I believe the screws have an interference thread because once they are adjusted, they stay adjusted.

    Many thanks. I guess I'll get to work and see if I can get the limiters off. I just don't get how they get away with making crap like this.
