Question about Garden
In a 2-stroke engine, the valving is done by the mechanical relationship of the piston position in the cylinder. No adjustment is possible other than grinding the cylinder ports or changing the piston skirt shape. You need to check the fuel filter (in the tank), air filter, and muffler for plugging. Because the engine is designed to burn a small amount of oil with the fuel, the muffler tends to plug over time. Check the fuel lines for decay or other damage. The carburetor has a rubber diaphragm in the lower chamber that decays over time as well. Go to: http://www.drystacked.com for a 12 page article on Walbro brand carburetors that are typical of chain saw carburetors. Good theory and troubleshooting information. 2-stroke engines are picky about air leaks behind the carburetor. Hope some of this helps!
