    my 024 will not idle normal it has brand new cylinder gasket and both crank seals are new .it has 150psi for comp. it will start and rev like normal but when its at idle it will idle high enough to get the chain moving a bit but then will idle low enough it sounds like its going to stall .also if I tip it bar down it will stall out .any answers will be much appreciated

    Did it pass vac and pressure test? If it dies when tipped forward I would guess there could be an air leak.
