Re: Stihl 048 AV - Runs Very Rich... Need carb rebuild?

This might sound silly but I actually did it from not paying attention .Keep in mind I've no doubt rebuilt at least a hundred chainsaw carbs in my life time .

The subject was an 042 Stihl,same as an 048 only smaller bore .Some how for whatever reason I had the diaphragm spacer gasket on the wrong side of the diaphragm.It did the same thing as the 048 in question .About drove me nuts.I overlooked it time and time again,had a brain fart .Made me so mad I banished the saw to the shelf until I got over my mad on which took about two years .

Finally after I regained my composure it only took me about 30 seconds to realize the error of my ways .In a nut shell it sounds to me like  that saw has a fuel delivery problem .
