If the carb mounting screws are tight then it is likely that the entire cylinder assembly is loose ( this is common) and the cylinder to crankcase screws need to be loc-tited and tightened.If the carb mounting screws just spin and dont tighten then they are stripped.

Find the adjustment screws on the front of the carburetor
There should be two screws on the front of the carburetor, which are used to adjust the air and fuel mixture. These often look like flat-head screws, and you can use a screwdriver to turn them, adjusting the amount of fuel and air mixing in the carb.

What is carburator ajustment screw setting
Just about any 2-cycle can be started by bottoming out the pins fully. (All in, clockwise rotation) Then, back them out 2 and a half turns. Remember, this will get it to start! Getting it to RUN will take some tweaking. If it idles, no worries, the idle is just there to keep it warm. Concentrate on fiddling with your high speed screw after the engine has idled up to operating temp for at least 3 minutes, and when placed into LOAD. NEVER adjust by sound or feel with NO LOAD. Too easy to get them too lean and pop their little heads off. ;D
Unable to tighten chain .. too droopy.
There are usually two 7/16″ nuts on the side of the chain saw. Loosen those a little first, then turn the screw to tighten the chain – not too tight or you’ll stretch out the chain when you use it. Don’t forget to re-tighten the two nuts before using the chainsaw.

I have a carburetor adjustment problem on my Mantis S V4/B. I had to remove the adjustment screw limiters because the were just turning on the screw shafts and not turning the screws themselves. Thanks to some unneeded assistance, the screws are well out of adjustment now and I can’t get it started. How many revolutions should I back out each of the screws to get back to near-factory settings?
