pull the muffler off and look for scoring on the piston,the 455 had a problem with running lean from factory and burned up a lot of pistons and cylinders

This is the same problem I have with a Mac 3200. I have: (1) A line from the primer bulb to the front port on the carburator. (2) line from fuel tank, with attached fuel filter, to the other primer bulb port. (3) Line from port on back of carb. to ????. I thought it must be a pulse line, but not certain, and don't know where to run it to. Please let me know when you find out.

Sometimes the transferred metal feels like compression.
The volume of most chainsaws is so small it makes a HUGE difference in the reading; depending on which end of the compression tester the Schrader valve is mounted (should be spark plug end). If the total cylinder volume is only 2 cubic inches and the hose adds an additional cubic inch you can see how it will impact.
I recommend you join here:
ArboristSite Chainsaw thread (free to join)
There are some threads about using acid to remove metal transfer from cylinder walls. There are some Homelite collectors. There are a bunch of good people that enjoy lending a little expertise. I am not a Homelite guy, I have done some research for Homeys and often you must buy an entire short block.
You may find this helpful too:
Homelite/Ryobi.com (authorized parts supplier)
https://www.gardnerinc.com/recons/disclaimer-lg.php - Agree; Choose “Product Line”; “Select OEM” & “Select Catalog” both to “Homelite Consumer Products”. A drop down list appears; self explanatory from here.
The numbers Homelite & Ryobi use do not match the numbers everyone posts. A careful inspection of your saw should find something that matches.
your question impressed me so much I almost did not answer. It is so though and well thought I though you had been at this for a while and knew exactly what to do next and were pulling my leg. Good on you. You will be welcomed at ArboristSite. Good Luck
