Hey gang...after buying the MS361 for the bigger stuff...and I have a 36 husky all redone for the smaller stuff.....I need my 50 special running again for the medium stuff!!! hehehe....I've had one chainsaw for 15 er 20 years...and now I get one this site and look what's happening already...geesh. Anyway......My old 50 special still runs great with lots of power....but I'm having a hard time starting it and once started, it aint idling!.....I just put a new carb kit in the saw....but the local small engine guy seems too think that the adjusting screw seats are scratched and not letting the adjusters work properly.....at 64 bucks and hour..he aint gonna work on my saw. Once I start the saw....it runs great while cutting...but if I sit it down and let it idle down properly...it dies and wont restart...kinda like its flooded. I can turn the high screw all the way back in and in about a dozen pulls the saw will start and run fine...I do hafta turn the screw back out pretty quick before she runs outta fuel though, and adjust the wide open throttle...then it will cut fine as long as the saw is running...shut it off...same thing all over again. Whatchallthink? I just put on a new recoil side case, breather, plug, bar and two chains right before it started giving me prob.s That was the reason I bought the new ms361 but I'd still like too get my old saw back running right again.
