The tool you need is a 530035560. You will have to search around the internet to find one as the manufacturer actually considers this to be a "tech-only" tool. But I do know they can be had by anyone wanting to buy one.

Some models do have special tools to make the carburetor adjustments. With models from certain manufacturers, the tools are not made available to the public. Finally, there are some models that do not have any form of adjustment outside of the idle speed.

If you will reply back to me here with your model number, I can look to see what type you have and advise your further.

Thank you for using Manage My Life!

The leaves are falling and winter is upon us. Having your leaf blower working correctly would be nice. I did some research and found an expert answer at managemylife.com to a similar question but you did not provide the model #. so I'm not sure that this answer will help.. I suggest that you resubmit your question with the model # so you will be provided the most accurate answer from your expert..
