That thing is sure dirty.   The boot pulled right in half also.    Should do real well when our done.

Those last pics was a different saw. I did for a local tree service few years ago. 
Just posted those pics so Willard could see more with motor somewhat out.

Thanks Kevin, just started on mine for a look to see what's going on.
My 338 and 536 will be the last top handles I'll ever buy. Reason I sold off all my MS200T and 020T 's.

Found out tonight ( took 2 months to get around to it) why the 338 is not running so good. Stripped out plastic threads the carb mount bolt screws into. Other bolt on flywheel side is torqued good but carb is not mating flush to the intake boot.
I'm thinking put a backup nut on the bolt but the bolt has those coarse threads for plastic threads. Will need a regular bolt....but I got to get back behind there. Nut backup can be done easy enough on flywheel side but thats not the side stripped.

I put the 338XPT (in semi tear down)away for a next winter project. It appears my T536 LiXP battery saw has replaced it. Getting spoiled with that little torqy saw. Just squeeze the trigger and go.

I'm back! Hahaha.
3 years later I got around to getting my old 2009 338XPT running.
Last night I tore the saw right down, wasn't so bad. Still took a mad scientist to design that saw though. Great design how everything fits together like a tidy jigsaw puzzle.
I fixed the stripped plastic carb mount hole with a 5mm Heli coil insert. Then put a regular 2" long cap screw in.
I  rebuilt the carb, pulled out the aluminum H L screws limiter plug. (Yes earlier I thought it never had a limiter because I was still able to get a small screwdriver in the tiny slots).
Put it all back together,  set the screws at 1 turn and it runs perfect, just rips with the previous muffler mod. Got a young arborist who is going to buy it today.  I hate to see it go but hopefully in the near future he'll buy my business out and I can go on with life while I'm ahead now that I'm 63 still with all my fingers ;D

Here's some keepsake  pics to remind me how beautiful this little saw is.
Probably never would have bought the T536 Li XP battery saw if I would have took the time to repair the 338 in the first place.
