The saw is fully assembled and seems to run great.  The clutch rattle is now gone, and the saw starts very easily, and revs nicely.

I just got my first tachometer, and went to tune the saw.  Previously, i set it so that it 4- stroked quite obviously.  Turned out that, i had tuned it to about 12000 RPM. 

Question is - how do i tune it now using the tach?
First i set idle to around 2700.  It isn't terribly consistent.  The revs climb and drop a little depending on how long the saw has idled.  But, it sounds normal.
Then, i turned in the H screw a little to test WOT again.  I turned it in until the saw was running at around 13,500 rpm consistently.  However, it doesn't quite sound like its 4-stroking.  Is this a problem?  The specs i read showed a max RPM of 14,000.  I never leaned it enough to go that high. 

I plan to test the saw this weekend in some oak.  I haven't yet made a cut with it.
