    Oh yeah, the only things that you can take out to facilitate cleaning after that are the high and low speed adjusting screws. I shoot carb cleaner into the holes. When you do put the screws back in, don't seat them too tight is what gets said, not to damage the fine tips.

    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.

    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.

    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 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.

    An old movie, but I love this scene, where Jimmy decides he's going to whack Morrie. That wry smile and little head shake, what an evil man. De Niro rips it. <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/tOWaHTlq-hI" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    It looked like a white meat type, reminded me of one that is light colored and flaky that we have here. I imagine good in a stew as well.

    Down in southern California, the famous "Wedge". Breaks in very shallow water, lots of carnage when it's big. <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/_4sapsFuO3U" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    Nice looking fish, Ray. What's inside, white flesh? How do you normally eat that species?
