Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.

Have you checked to see if you are getting spark to the plug?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
there is a spark.
I've removed the bar and chain so no load and it still doesn't start. I ordered a new plug and ignition coil planning to change them next. Not certain of correct carburetor settings though.
The Case has 11/4 turns stamp but worn out so unclear of direction.
Any general guidelines on carburetor adjustment would be appreciated.
Do not have the original instructions booklet.

I would rather talk on the phone whenever you are available.

The 1 1/4 turns would be an initial setting turning the screws out that distance from all the way in snug. I doubt that it would be an ignition coil problem on this one since you say it has good spark. The problem I have is that you say it won't even fire or try to start on carburetor cleaner or starting fluid when sprayed directly into the carburetor. It should at least hit or fire like it wants to run when you do this. I would be checking for an air leak on one of the crankshaft seals or cylinder base gasket.
