Thanks FF!  I muddled through it already. You're right.  A lot of disassembly but no case splitting.  My Permatex #1 had gotten old so (being impatient) I used Hylomar.  So far so good.  The guy who did it first (30 some years ago) used a regular silicone caulk.  No wonder it leaked from that day forward.  I did commit one "faux paus" though.... I used a hammer to tap/loosen one of the rear "skid plate" screws loose.  Broke the casting at the rear on one side.  Never having seen it I didn't know how thin and weak it was.  Oh, well....  saw starts and runs even better now; can't help but wonder if air was leaking under the carb a tiny bit.  Thanks again! Hopefully this post may help prevent some other newbie from making the same mistake.

Lucky
