Question about Garden
Unit was getting hard to start so did compression test(100lbs), inspected and cleaned carb, inspected fuel lines(no holes), replaced fuel filter and primer bubble, and cleaned spark plug, check gas tank vent and it is ok. unit will fire up and run for about 20-30 seconds and dies. i figured it has an air leak but can't find it.

I think your on the right track
Blowing compressed air through your tank vent
is great but it is way more air than the natural asperation
that the saw pulls on it own
I would replace the vent cap and also look for a pinched fuel line between the fuel tank and the carb

Pull off the exhaust, does the piston look ok?
If scored thats not good.
If ok check fuel filter , pressure test lines or remove and check for cracks. Just a start but check easy stuff 1st or get back to me with more info, cheers

if you have a good compression,a strong enough blue spark and carburetion for the fuel air mixture try priming the engine(put small amount of gas in the spark plug hole)then start the engine.If the engine runs only the gas you put inside the cilinder there is a carburetion problem to find and fix.
let me know regards savumihai71

Check the fuel filter for plugging. Check the fuel lines for decay or other damage. Make sure the carburetor fasteners are tight, especially the carburetor to cylinder fasteners. Did you check the lower chamber diaphragm when you were working on the carburetor? It should be flexible with no holes or cracks. Go to: http://www.drystacked.com for a 12 page article on Walbro brand carburetor theory and troubleshooting. This information applies to other brands of carburetor as well. Hope some of this helps!
