Re: Carb adjustment
« on: February 19, 2013, 06:27:31 am »
I wonder how many saws burn up running to lean because of the limiters? especially after modifying a saw.  people think there safe because they have the limiters/
end quote

Well the classic example is a gent from Cincinnati a few years back who followed another persons advice partly and hogged out the muffler on a then new 088 Stihl and failed to adjust the carb .

He was proud as punch of how the big saw could just scream like a hopped up 70 cc and had the power of a 120 plus .I cautioned him he needed to give it more fuel which he ignored .A month or so later on flea bay ,for sale 088 Stihl ,cooked top end ,Cincinnati  Ohio area .Now I think at that time an 088 was about 1200 bucks ,still a lot of long green down the tubes .
