So I guess the next step is to find out if it is worth repairing.  I certainly don't have the money to buy a new one at this time, but I  don't want to pay more than the saw is worth to have it repaired or try to do it myself.  I am pretty decent on most things mechanical and can follow instructions I am tempted to try to save some money and do it myself.  However, if I take it to anyone because of my last experience with a "small engine repair" place I will more than likely take it back to the dealer for repair.  Not to mention as stated if it is running lean I would need to have someone adjust the carb or find out if there is another problem.

I bought the saw used and spent $400 on it about a year ago. Since then I have replaced the choke housing and assembly due to it sticking ($130), replaced the spark plug and air filter($60) and now the coil ($120).  All said I have maybe cut with the saw a total of 10 hours.

From what I have seen online a replacement head and piston are $119-149 for aftermarket replacements to $450 for an OEM Replacement.

What are your thoughts and advice?
