    Just wondering what I should tach this saw at. Was @13, 500 before the cover was put on. About 1 1/2 tanks through the saw. Should I richen it up to run around 13,300 or 13,400?

    I would leave it at 13,500 or tune by ear and reference with a tach.

    thanks for the offer! Its a customer's saw though. Not sure if he could go without it.

    P.S. I ran the saw against my 460 this afternoon, was quite impressed for not being broken in.
