Good move

I was trying to load a vid, but its too big.... ;).

Story of my life...LOL.
Once its running right, I will post it on youtube and like it. It sounds like its deeper than it used to be. (At idle anyhow...) Not going to run it too much since I am sure its lean.

You can remove the plastic tab with a drywall screw. Screw it in the plastic and pull the tabs out with pliers.

Ok, so out of the box the saw had both screws full left, at least as far as the limiter would allow. To9day I took it by a lawn equipment place and they said the carb didnt need any adjustments. ... this seems odd to me considering I hollowed out the muffler and removed a cat. Any input?

Did you remove the limiter tabs? I suspect they either don't know how or didn't want to mess with it.

No the tabs are still there. I am worried that they didnt want to fool with it, and saw is still lean.

You can get them out with a drywall screw. Then do this: http://www.madsens1.com/saw_carb_tune.htm

So, I got the caps off, and took it to this old guy, he tuned it by ear...
I will get a vid of it on youtube, and post the like.

That link for tuning is really good! Wish it had the Echo numbers...

What are those tachs called? I would love to have one.

Thanks again to everyone!
