 if i think i am getting too much fuel. I will drain the tank and try starting it with a prime only. Then you know if it is a fuel system problem.

Do you know if your guage is off? Maybe the comp is lower than the guage is reading. Also, When you say it has good spark. Is it a crisp blue spark? I've had saws with an orange\red spark and they would not fire.

yes all seemed good,have to say this has been a hard saw to troubleshoot. must be missing something it doesn't even try to fire with fuel in the cld. or sprayed into the carb. spark is good. 120 lbs compreesion is low but it was shut down I am told when the bar was pinched,has not ran since thanks all

Try changing the spark plug. I've had plugs that looked like they had good spark but apparently not under compression.
