Well, I found it, albeit after the saw blew up.

It seems that the carb boot had an irregular surface (little mold sprews or ****) on the surface. So bad part, however the saw did pass factory leak down and vac tests. Well another jug and piston as well as a new carb boot, flange and SS collar, oh yeah the boot was new aftermarket, never again!

Won't mention where the boot came from; needless to say NO more of those!

Pizzes me off to no end!

That is not a cheap way to find out.

I agree but sometimes you get the bear other times the bear gets you. I just want the customer to be satisfied with their saw. Was it my fault, yes definitely, so if it costs money so be it. Still can't figure out how I missed it.

You know Tim I have a pair of magnifiers much like a jeweler would use that I put on sometimes so I can inspect things up close and personal.    I just wonder if maybe that would have helped you.

Thank you Roger what you suggest could be, but it was just an oversight on my part! I do not think that it is any big deal just do not like that it happened to a customer! I will look into the jewelers magnifiers you speak of. I actually found the problem while taking the saw apart, felt the little sprews when removing the SS ring and thought, OH NO! Guess what, I will NEVER make that mistake again!

I always use my magnifiers when rebuilding carbs.   It gives me a really good view of any corrosion and dirt in the carb.   It also allows me to see the needle and seat height really well.

Where did you get them and what brand are they? In my old age my vision has diminished to about 10% of normal. Normal being 20/20 mine is at 20/200. Bad but I try to manage. Even the Obama government says that I am blind, ha ha let that sucker run out there beyond my rifle, we will see who is blind!

Optivisor is the brand I use.    They have glass magnifiers and not plastic.   You can find them on eBay for around 36.00 dollars plus shipping.   There are different magnifications depending on what you want and working distance.
My wife has a pair she uses to thread a needle I believe they are DA 5 magnifiers.   I use a stronger one which are DA 8, but you have to be willing to work up close to your eyes with these.   

I did watch repair and restoration of pocket watches for 30 plus years and these visors are the industry standard.
I still have a collection of close to 100 pocket watches.  Two watch benches, 3 antique stake and sets, a watch lathe, jewel pushers, various tweezers and other tools.
