Ok, i just performed my first ever vacuum/pressure test on a saw. 

I used a piece of rubber to block off the exhaust port
I also managed to block off the intake boot, where the carb connects successfully (this part wasn't easy).

The saw held 10psi pressure for over a minute.  Similar for vacuum.  Does this successfully eliminate the possibility of air leaks?

So, does that leave only the carburetor?  What is my next step?

Should i first cut off the limiters off the carb needle screws and try that? 

I verified that this is a Walbro carb.

If that fails, should i try rebuilding this carb, or spring for a Zama?  If so, where should i get the Zama? 

Thanks,
Jon
