Will it run if not cutting?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I can get it to run but it won't stay running without playing with the trigger
Expert:  Vince O. replied 1 year ago.
Make sure the carbs tight. The carb may need adjusted. A special tool needed but you make one. Tap a piece of 3/16 copper tubing onto the adjustment screws to turn them.

Start the saw and open the low speed screw(closest to the engine) so it will run without the choke on.Squeeze the trigger and if it hesitates or wants to stall open low speed a hair more.Run on high speed and fine tune adjustment,after it runs good open high speed screw a hair so it doesn't run too lean.
