    I have an Echo PB 250 blower and need to adjust the carb. The H and L adjustments are on the right hand side of the carb exposed and need a very small spline tool. The spline tool for Craftsman, Poulon, etc is tool large. The splines on the Echo is very small. Where can I obtain this tool?

    You cannot. The tools are only available to dealers. Its illegal to sell them to the public. And no, its not a conspiracy of the dealers to force you to pay them....its the EPA.

    It IS illegal for legitimate dealers to sell current tools.

    Not saying you wont find them online but I would be careful. The fines are pretty steep if the EPA finds them or you.

    Hmmm....IS...IS NOT....IS...IS NOT....
    Guessing its probably illegal in Illinois..Thats where Obama is from.....or was that Kenya...
    Virginia may be a different story.....you may have to have a special handshake or something..

    Still looking for the long D shape tool. Surely, somebody's got one - at a reasonable price.
