Cool!  I have a nice 4900 and a 'project' 4200 on the way.:D
-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.

You're a horse trader John.  I can identify.  Upside it that you get to own/run lots of different stuff.  Downside is always regretting the trucks/motorcycles/firearms/saws/etc that you've traded/sold off.  I'm JUST starting to figure out when to hold on to stuff and when to let it go.....

Yeah that's been happening for me too.  Sold off some good saws to pay bills recently.  Gotta sell the nice looking, good running ones...............as those are the saws that people will actually pay money for (go figure).  Just traded a big 'ol McCulloch that I really liked (and finally got squared away) for my 5200 project saw.  Seems I'm always parting with the good running stuff and getting more projects.  Traded a good running big Homelite for the 4900.  At least the 4900 is a good looking, good running saw.  Bucking my usual trend... ::)

 You will like that 4900 if it's a good runner and good luck getting the 5200 going.
