I put some good run time on my rebuilt 211 and decided to pull the muffler to see how it looks. It has a couple vertical lines but nothing you could feel with a small pick. So next thing I did was a compression test with neighbors gauge, the type that has the rubber tip you press in plug hole. It looks like 130psi ( that type are difficult to hold when pulling starter). I need to get a good one.
The saw starts good, runs good, smooth response, and idles good but the plug is black like its running a little rich.
I wanted to make a little adjustment but neighbor said leave it be, it's a good running saw.
Whats your thoughts?

If it runs good and sounds right - - leave it alone
We should share what we know... someone may learn...
That knowledge can live after us... and that "Pays It Forward".

OK, thanks. It's just that I'm as nervous as a call girl in church with this saw. It's the first time I totally tore down and removed transfer (straight gassed) and put new piston & rings & seals.
Maybe I'm the only one who has that feeling with first rebuild, but if I do another, I've learned a bunch from this saw.
