Stihl MS180c no high rpm's
« on: August 21, 2013, 06:37:13 pm »
I used it in May and now it has no high rpm's but idles fine. This model has no high/low adjust screws. The chain lock is not engaged. If I throttle it up slowly it tries to get high rpm's but flutters out back to idle. I put on new filter and fuel lines I had for it and checked the needle and seat assembly and screen in the carb and brake cleaned everything well. New fuel, new plug, same results...no high rpm's...advise here please....Tom

I'd be looking into complete carb rebuild or another carb.

Get a new carb $35
We should share what we know... someone may learn...
That knowledge can live after us... and that "Pays It Forward".
Be all that you can be . . .

The earlier 018 had a low speed screw in the carb

Take off your muffler screen and clean it, and your air filter too.
