    I need to buy the carb adjustment tool for my M242. The number believe to be 81362, but I have been searching all over the web and cannot find it. Anyone have any idea?

    Thanks

    Have you taken the tamper proof plug out yet? The reason why I ask is because the Walbro PDF mentioned the idle needle having a 2.5mm straight slot head. They may have gone to a head requiring a special tool; I don't know.

    Hey Alan, would you like me to send you the Walbro PDF? I accidentally learned how to email Adobe PDFs. :D

    No I have not done anything yet. The engine seems to need a bit longer to warmup lately, that's why I am looking ahead to buy the tool.

    Yes, please sent me the PDF. Thanks.

    You'll have to PM me your email address, but I promise not to give it to the CIA or immigration service. :D

    Is the carb adjustment tool the little red thing about 6 inches long. I think I have one that I never took out of the plastic.

    Guess it won't help you but my dealer gave me one for the 2510 when I purchased 4 units. This one is a blue handle and the adjusting needle is kinda d shaped. I am guessing that this isn't a special tool.

    Just order the D shaped tool for $20.00 to your doorhttp://www.edgeandengine.com/webstore/wecs.php?store=edge&action=searchadvanced&advancedsearch_words=91059 and be done with it.

    By EPA policy, that tool is not suppose to be sold to the general public, just registered dealers. It is a $32,000.00 (yes, 32 thousand) dollar fine if EPA catches you impropperly adjusting mixture screw. Applies to dealer and END USER!!!!
