I am not going to pretend to know, someone else here would be better qualified to answer that one.

I can check on my 038 Mag and see what carb its got, then you could be sure. Mine is all origional

Based on the IPL's I have the 038's either run a Bing 48A101 or a 48A125 or a Zama C3-S148 or C3-S149. Those are all listed weather a 038, 038S,038M. i would check to make sure you have the right inlet needle. hopefully you kept the old one to compare. Had a husky 394 do the same thing you are talking about would not gain rpm with the H needle all the way in. found out that the inlet needle in the kit was not the one that I needed. But needed one out of a different kit. Look real close at the taper where the needle comes in contact with the seat. Also is your metering lever flush with the chamber floor. You can try to drop the lever below the floor and lean it out that way.

Unless it's been changed the Mag uses a Bing carb.

I don't know the history on the saw.  It has a Tilliston carb.  It has a plastic bottom on it.  I took the carb apart again and cleaned it again and adjusted the needle arm again and now it runs like a dream!  I want to get a 20" or longer bar to put on it.  I am not buying a new chain for that short bar that is on it.  I will put it in some wood as soon as this wet weather ends long bar or not!  Thanks for all of the help!  I have learned a lot working on this saw.  If it was a lesser saw I would have just parted it out!
