OK, whacked the first tree. Saw ran real good but the chain has had it. Picked up a new one, have to bring a bunch to saw guy and have him sharpen them. Been reading about the muffler mod thing, any one do this? As I understand it, open the muffler outlets up to 2/3 the area of the exhaust port.

Yup, ethanol disease. I replaced the fuel line and weighted filter in the tank after rebuilding the carb. This Star Tron should alleviate anymore problems with the ethanol

Hell yeah on the muffler mod. I did it to my Echo, and had to richen it up afterwards. The performance improvement was very noticeable. On mine I just had to remove the interior components from the muffler - I wear hearing protection anyway, so the noise increase was a non-issue for me.

I run an Oregon chisel chain on mine, it really rips.

Yes, understand the retune. Probably have to fatten it up. Have to wait for the ridiculous 7 spline adjusting tool to keep us idiots from messing with it. :lol:
Just tried the new chain, she eats like a busy beaver now. Bonus, saw never started this well, happy camper.

Most Avgas is 100ll...
still has lead...
Synthetic oils still have issues with lead sludging ...
So use a regular oil...
