    Very straight forward it is. The only thing that I guess could be said that is delicate, is if you want to disassemble the whole carb for cleaning. Two things.... On the pump side is a little screen that sits in a recess, about 3/8" in diameter or so. You can pop that out with a pointed thing like an ice pick. It can have dirt in there. If you shoot air at it, it can fly out to who knows where. On the opposite metering side, when removing the screw that holds the little pin that holds the metering lever that raises the metering needle up and down with the diaphragm pulsations, there is a tiny spring that sits in a little recess beneath the lever. You need to be mindful that it doesn't fly out and disappear when you take out the screw holding the horizontal pin. Keep you finger on the metering lever for control when removing the screw, then carefully taking finger pressure off the lever will allow it to be lifted away and the spring is sitting there accessible. It probably fell over. Taking the screw out, then releasing the pin and taking out the spring and metering lever, then allows you to lift out the metering needle if it has slipped off the end of the lever. If you bought the whole rebuild kit and not just the diaphragms with gaskets, there will be a new metering lever and needle with it. Metering levers don't normally get buggered up unless they've been tweaked, but it's good to replace the needle. The metering lever should sit flush with the surface of the carb body around it or a slightly raised ridge (flat or ridge depends on carb model) when everything is assembled, or else it needs to get bent to be like that. There must be videos and stuff on the net that clearly explains that if in doubt. It's all very simple really, but trying to describe it may make it not seem that way. Putting the spring back in and having it match up beneath the lever like it should be can be a little fiddle. I like to set the spring in its little recess standing up, then after putting the pin through the lever and hooking the needle on the end, drop the affair down in place without the spring tipping over. The horizontal pin has to fit into it's groove and the screw put in over that holds it all in place. Pretty self explanatory really when you see it.

    Yeah, not going savage. I think Henry might make it in lever. Leaning that way.

    Stig, that is a great story. Those Sena units really make a difference in breaking in a new climber.

    Deva, I don't recall if you mentioned having rebuilt a carb before, but if you haven't, be mindful that the metering side diaphragm (4 screws holding on the top cover plate) sits on top of the gasket. The opposite side pump diaphragm is reversed, it sits against the carb body under the gasket.

    I had a fun job today. The local State Forest had sold 3 large larch trees to a mill builder. They were going to be used for wings, at the restoration of a historic wind mill. Those logs are worth a lot of monet, so in order to avoid any tear out by the thick branches when they were felled ( Our larch is prone to do that) They aked me to strip them and top them out. That was just another day at the office. The fun part was, they have an apprentice who has taken all the required courses and bought climbing gear, but has zero experience beyond what he was taught in school. He badly wanted to try topping one, so the forester had told me that they'd pay me to supervise it, and make sure the kid didn't get hurt. They don't have a climber at the district. Well, yesterday we had really high, gusting winds. When I topped the first one, it was a hell of a ride. I could tell the kid was having second thought about the whole thing, so I gave him my usual apprentice pep-talk about how a climber has to be able to overcome fear etc....etc.....etc...ad nauseum. He went up, and he got shook around good by the wind, but kept his cool ( Being able to talk to him on the SENAs helped with that) and did the job. He was one happy, proud kid when he came down, and sure had every right to be. That was a hell of a tree to start out with.

    There certainly are more experienced people than me who would likely offer a wiser reply, but I would guess that the saw might well have simply quickly froze up with no damage to the crank bearings or anything else besides the p and c. After thoroughly blowing out and cleaning the crankcase and parts within, check the crank movement. If it seems good, why not go for it with a new p and c. When you do install the new piston on the crank, be mindful of the circlips position that holds the piston on the crank pin. The curly q should either be in the up or down position in it's seat, not sideways, or it's said that the clip can fly out. I had a clip either break or fly out once on a real cool modified saw that I had put a lot of work into and was getting real good use from, rendering both the piston and cylinder damaged to uselessness. Bring that saw back to life!

    I'm sure you can return it if there is NO sign of ANY wear.

    Frightening too, Butch. I once hooked a big Halibut on sport gear when trolling for salmon, in a 12 foot skiff about a mile off shore just south of Ft. Bragg. The ocean was flat and I had a radio to call in case of emergency. That Halibut was in the neighborhood of 200+ lbs. I had it up to the boat two times and it stripped over 200 yards of 40 lb. test off the reel each time heading out to deeper water. I had to fire up the outboard to keep up with that fish. I ended up off of Casper High Point some 2 miles south of Ft. Bragg before the line broke. The fish was too big to land in the boat anyway. I'd have to tie it by the tail and tow it off the stern. But if it came alive it would tear the stern off the skiff. The whole time I was torn between trying my damnedest to land that fish or just cut the line, and play it safe. Oh, I couldn't cut the line. The only reason I stuck with it as long as I did is because it was a flat calm ocean and I had several coves nearby to duck into for safe landing, if the need come. The whole experience was exhilarating and freighting all at the same time. Truly a tale of the "Old Man and the Sea". Ah, but I was only 30 then. Bring it on!

    I remember reading an article about a guy that hooked a giant tuna while in his small inflatable. Multi hundred pound fish I believe it was. I can't recall exactly, but I think something like three hours or maybe longer to finally succeed in bringing the fish up to his raft. I imagine it was quite a feat to accomplish.
