I had the same issue. I disassembled carb and cleaned. Started up, but ran poorly. Looked at a few google searches and found a forum about his issue. I came across a write up about failed muffler bearings. I did some research, but to no avail. on part numbers. I went to a repair shop and inquired about how to get a muffler bearing ordered for my unit. It has been about a week since I was at the shop and I did call, but they assure me that they are working on getting this part for me. Apparently these motor parts are made in China and that can create some issues when trying to get parts. I may have to let the repair shop do the repair since I was told it may be a bit complicated to replace without having the experience. If it is as difficult to locate, I would not want to damage it when trying to install and have to get another. I will be glad to repost once it has been repaired. Perhaps this muffler bearing is an issue with a lot of other units and we may be able to contact the manufacturer for a refund or a free muffler bearing? I hope!!! Good luck out there and hang tight. I may be on to something here, I've got a good feeling about this.

hello sir,, now there are two types of carb.adjustment screw covers,the old one where there are plastic over the screws,simple remove the plastic covers with a pair of needle nose pliers or cutting off,,,second are the new ones that are above the adjustment screws,which you have to take your drummel tool with the cutting blade and cut slots in the screws, after you get this done it is important to count the number of rotations in until stops make note how many. because you are going to reset the same way.now remove the screws,put to the side when you get ready to put screws in put in all the way than back out as many turns that you noted, now that is factory set there should only be a small adjustment to do. the rule of thumb is turn both out 1 1/4 turn and adjust in until saw runs smooth and idles ok, it is hard to adjust the top speed when saw is running wide open,let saw idle when adjusting top speed is easier that way, when you go to cut wood you may have to readjust top speed, the above does apply some what if you are not using fresh gas mix and dumped out the old fuel and starting with fresh,and a new plug CJ8Y,and as you know the saw has to breath in and out by this i mean a clean air filter,make sure the small screen on the muffler is not cloged,this will keep saw from running at peak speed and sawing wood, ok i have ran across a few saws to where the small screen in the muffler is cloged so the saw would idle but not run at high rpm's,if you do and check all of the above your saw should run,oh btw check compression should be above 60 to 160 lbs, hope this helps,any comments welcome,please accept my solution,thank you. 00
