    Hi guys,

    Just picked up a very nice Dolmar 6000i. Saw looks incredibly clean, will start and run strong at full or partial choke, but can't run with choke shut down. Idle screw not the fix. So, I'm about to do range of the following to see if I can fix the issue - clean carb, new carb kit, clean/replace air filter, replace fuel filter, replace fuel line, and replace impulse line. After these simple things, I guess I'll have to look a crank seals, crank case leaks, etc. Any other simple things I might be missing? Thanks!

    Cheers!

    After a carb build, you need to set a "baseline" for your hi-low throttle screws. What you want to do is generally 'bottom out' both screws, but don't crank them down. Then, back the low screw off one full turn, back the hi screw off 1 1/4 turns. That should get you up and running. Then fine tune it from there. I'm betting you'll have it purring like a kitten!

    Thanks Scott - I've been practicing carb tuning on 'junkers' lately, just to learn how to get it right - I'll go with those settings and tweak - thanks! Cheers!
