    Good morning everyone,

    Finished my first Carb rebuild yesterday and it felt great. Well for about 15 minutes then saw died again. I checked the gas since i didnt put much in and when i took cap off there was a hiss which got me thinking about the vent. Put cap back on and it fired right back up :). Pulled vent hose and it was plugged up. I went and ordered new hose and asked them if they could check RPM after i rebuilt the carb and they adjusted it and check RPM for free!!
    Now that is great service compared to what i was used to at old place. They just wanted to sell me a new saw. I normally would not have touched the carb but with all the great information on here i gave it a try. Besides if i ran into any trouble i had all of the experts on here to ask.
    Thanks again everyone.

    There ya go, probably not near as painful as you expected. Got the satisfaction of knowing exactly what was done and saved some green too!
