Stihl hs 61 carburator problem. I have problem with my carburator I Think? It will start for a few sec, in idle but then it dies when trying to rev it up. I have done factory specs. when adjusting H/L needles I also cleaned the carb and all its channels. the membrane looks good, what more can I do? Im thinking of bying a new carb but they are hard to find for me so any tip on where to get one?

Remove the throttle stop adjuster and the air screw adjuster and spray carb cleaner in the holes.
Be sure to put these two screws back in the same hole they came out of. IMPORTANT > do not tighten these two adjusters down. Only screw these in until they LIGHTLY seat. Now turn each adjuster one and one half turns outward. Turn the pilot screw 1/4 turn counter clockwise. Check the float level. Before putting the slide back in the throat of the carb, move the clip on the jet needle one notch lower.Put the rest of the carb back together, clean the air filter and install the carb. Let the float bowl fill then start the engine. Adjust the idle speed with the Throttle stop screw. This process should get you back on the road. A “very helpful” rating for this answer? Thanks!

you might want to check the magnito for rust build up.
it also wouldn't hurt to check the float or maybe even the valves.
since you adjusted the idle and mixture ur probly gonna have to adjust them again to get them back where they should be especially if rust build up on the magnito is the cause of your problem.
it wouldn't hurt to check the fuel filter either.

SOURCE: cuts out on acceleration
if you have over 200 hours on this FS 80 then you may need a valve adjustment(yes this 2-stroke has valves). if you wanna try to do it yourself it should be set @ 0.1mm @TopDeadCenter. my advice is take it to any stihl dealer and let them do it. its scheduled maintenance
