Crap.  It's down alright.
-Aaron

For older saws:
Tune the H side so that it 4-strokes (burbles) at WOT unloaded and just cleans up when under load.
When you lift cutting load, the saw should immediately revert to 4-stroking.  Fine tune the transition point for the wood you're cutting.

That Rigid is definitely a rebadged Poulan 5200.  It's listed as such in a Poulan Private Label index that I have.
