    I am a sears guy just got that....I do get a few tools from snap on that the dealer repair guys get for me.

    That is tough for me to take pictures....if you get youself one of those ear inspection tools from Target you go look into various cavities to find them.
    One is usually on top and the other is on the back side. The reason I buy mainly Echo or Shindwawa is because they do have these adjustment needles that can be used to adjust carb. These machines just will not run very long with out a tweek.

    where can i find out more info about these. Ive just bought 2 rebuild kits for k75 zamas and still cannot get it to run right! Gonna take some time off and do some more research and blast entire carb with carb cleaner and compressed air. After i remove all diaphrams and needle of course. Does seat come out on this carb?

    No. It has a high speed needle that you can back out once you get it apart. The brass collar will come right out as you screw CCW on the needle. On that high speed needle hole you need to blow from small hole in the carb out not from outside.

    Usually--right under the primer bulb--there's a small black hard plastic plug. Do a search on Echo carb adjustment or removal of Echo adjustment plug, you should find a ton of info.

    Would you happen to know the snap on part number for this tool. I might have to ask Santa for one.
