SOURCE: adjusting carburetor

Does saw try to run? Initial settings are about two turns out from CW stop. Set high speed (on warmed up engine) to 4-stroke with no load, but smooths out with light load (cutting wood). Idle is set for fairly smooth idle, but engine picks up with throttle without lag. Idle speed setting is somewhat below chain drive clutch pickup, but allows engine to keep running.
